Mechanical mayhem, chainsaw catastrophe, damage and destruction
marks the arrival of the much talked about Robot Wars toys.
brave enough to venture behind enemy lines will be able to challenge
each other to grudge matches, testing the power of the new radio-controlled
and action toys. Toy makers, Logistix Kids Retail has confirmed
that the robot replicas from the hit BBC 2 series, will be available
in major toy retailers, including Toys R Us and Woolworths for Christmas
the markets move toward interactive toys, Logistix Kids Retail has
produced two radio-controlled house robots: Shunt and Matilda (RRP
£54.99) and a host of action toys (RRP 9.99) to include the
famous house robots: Shunt, Matilda, Sir Killalot, Dead Metal and
Sgt. Bash as well as favourite competitor robot, Hypno-disc. Logistix
Kids Retail plans to extend the range and introduce new additions
in Spring 2001.
"We have gone all out to replicate the robots
and have spent huge amounts of time and money throughout the design
stage to get them just right. We think they will be as big as a
hit as the show itself," said Logistix Kids Head of Retail
In research commissioned by the company, children said they wanted
a variety of accessories - to be able to create different battles
and to make their game more like the TV show. Logistix Kids Retail
has responded to this by offering a range of tough and testing accessories
and interchangeable weapons. Some of these have never been seen
on the TV show and have been designed especially for the use with
the toys. The Robot Wars series organisers have been so impressed
with the toys that they have decided to incorporate the new designs
into the actual house robots.
The launch follows the cult show, which returned to
our TV screens in September. Now well into its forth series Robot
Wars goes from strength to strength, attracting upwards of 6.5 million
viewers every week.
