Long before TV shows like Battlebots , there were these guys: two plastic boxers battling it out in a ring, tirelessly jabbing at each other in an effort to knock their opponent's block off. Years go by and these fighters (creatively referred to in my house as "the blue one" and "the red one") are still at it, still operated by two players working simple controllers, and still madly punching in an effort to knock loose the other fellow's spring-loaded head. As was traditionally the case, it takes a while to maneuver the robots such that you can even land any punch, let alone a knockout blow. But for intense silly robot fighting, without the hassle of batteries, these guys are still champs. --John Moe
