As you can see in the video below, many people are really fond of robot fighting.
For most robot-lovers out there, seeing their robot walk around and interact is a sufficient proof of their programming and building skills. Some people, however, like to take it a step further and test their skills in an all-in-all fight. (Yes, you guessed it right, with a chance that all their hard work may come in vain if their robot gets damaged in the combat!)
Would you like to try out building a fighting robot of your own but don’t know where to turn? There are plenty of toys out there that you’d love, but you have to find them. This guide will help you to get the fighting robot toys that you are looking for.
The toy you’re going to buy needs to be well reviewed by a lot of people. Look at the site you’re on and see if it has reviews, and look for them on other sites as well. You want to make sure you’re not spending money on something that’s not going to be fun or that will just fall apart on you as your kids or you play with it. There are a lot of really poorly made toys on the market, and they’re super cheap generally so price is a good indicator of the quality you’re going to get.
Shop with a company with a good reputation. A lot of people sell toys, and not all of them are interested in providing good customer service. One thing to look for in a company is whether you can return something that doesn’t work right or that you’re not happy with. If you go with big retailers, then you generally don’t have to worry about this because they will take it back for any reason. But, if you work with a private seller then you may be out of luck if what you get is not something you want to keep for whatever reason.
There are new toys released all the time, so if you don’t like the selection then you can wait a little while and see what comes out in the near future. You can also look back at older toys that were better than what’s on the market now. You never know, you may be able to find a sealed fighting robot toy that is from a while back for a decent price. The best place to find something like this is an online auction website where people from all over the world can sell whatever they want.
A lot of great fighting robot toys are out there. Pick out the one that has the best reviews if you want to be happy with your purchase. Also be wary of how much you’re spending so you don’t end up paying more than what the toy is worth. However, for those more experienced with robot-building, there is one more option that might take up more time, but is much more satisfying in the result. Yes, I’m talking about building your own robot out of old components or cheap ones you can buy online. If you’re planning on going down this route, draw out a simple plan of what your new robot fighter should look like. Whatever your design, you will definitely need a motherboard like this one to get started.
Once you have that, it’s up to you and your creativity. You can use parts from old TVs, remote controls (playstation and xbox controllers work particulary well) or buy cheap or used ones in an electro store.
