Think of them as Rock’Em, Sock’Em Robots on wheels: Tamiya’s constructable, DIY Robocraft boxing kit contains a contains a wired robot pugilist with only one function: to spurt hydraulic fluid, to knock servo-controlled blocks off, to see LED lights go dim under the bombardment of tin and plastic fists.

Rather expensive, unfortunately. Two will run you back $67, which is about $47 more than is reasonable.

    If I’m not wrong they showed these ROBOCRAFT kits 3 years ago during the Shizuoka Hobby Show.
    I didn’t even know they were still on sale since, as John pointed out, they are basically way to expensive and I don’t think Tamiya has moved many boxes of these kits…

    Aw, what a shame the price is so high. I could use an army of these!
