    He said “Grandpa, this is my best present ever.” Of course, he loves BattleBots. Bots are amazingly realistic.

    Purchased (along with 2 other bots from a different site) for identical 10 year old triplet boys. The boys have enjoyed playing with the set and so far (fingers crossed) nothing has broken and the batteries have lasted longer than expected.

    The boys main complaint is that the arena is too small (only 3-5 bot lengths, depending on the bot) and so they have been building a larger lego arena to use. The bots travel rather fast and it is super hard to have any control over them in the small arena. The controllers are really small and require two hands AND good finger eye coordination, which the boys don't have. With both hands needing to be on the controller, there is no spare hand for controlling the hammers on the arena. Since they love the TV show, they have the motivation to play with the set and hopefully it will help them develop better hand eye coordination.

    2nd complaint is that the bots are not evenly matched. The panels are held on by magnets. Some bots lose their panels more easily than others. and some, because of size, are harder to control in the small arena. Highly recommend that one purchase more bots than the 2 that come in the set.

    I did not see it in the instructions, but one of the boys explained to me that you could tell the winner by the number of panels, if any, that were still retained by the bot at the end of a round. The set does not include a timer, so they seem to play until one bot does not have any removable panels still attached.

    Buy at least one extra pair of bots so you can match them according to ability and have spares for when one breaks. Expensive toy that becomes unplayable if any part, except the arena, is damaged (and that is easy to do.) It is fun to play with and gets the kids away from the all electronic games and phones.

    No problems whatsoever with this set. Myself and my son 5.5yr old love it and have all the bots now.

    It was just given today but I can say it was a BIG hit. So far it is holding up to a lot of play. I do worry because they seem fragile. The floor is not plastic but cardboard which was a downer, I hope it can last

    We bought the arena set with tombstone and witch doctor along with the extra set with beta and Minotaur for our daughter’s birthday. Overall, we love it! Setting up the arena was super easy, and it is easy to get accustomed to syncing the remotes and channels with their respective bots. My wife, daughter and I already played for an hour with 3 bots in the arena and we had a blast! My only advice would be to watch out for hair getting entangled in the mechanisms that allow the weapons to spin/rotate. After an hour of gameplay Minotaur’s weapon ceased to rotate, but upon closer inspection we noticed some hair tangled up by the weapon. After removing the entangled hair, the weapon proceeded to work normally again. Great product and we look forward to more bots coming out!

  • Cool idea and the fighting mechanism makes it look surreal, but it's a little overpriced.

    My son used his birthday money to buy this and he, his friends, and I have been having a blast with it! The bots really race around the arena, which looks ubercool as a "Rumbledome" in miniature, and the controls are very tight. Our set has the Tombstone and the Witch Doctor, which look mismatched in ability, but upon playing are actually pretty balanced, the Tombstone having more destructive power, but the WD controlling better and having the ability to flip Tombstone over on his back. We battle until one bot loses all its detachable parts, declaring the other bot the winner, and matches can carry on for some time as the combatants circle each other and try to rev up a run to slam the other bot into the corner and smash him with the mallet. I agree with other comments that assembly can be a little difficult in that the walls don't slot in perfectly (hint: put the corners in first separately, then slot in the walls), and more bots would definitely be welcome, but despite these imperfections, this is an awesome toy! My son got his set for $50 in a Thanksgiving night "Black Friday" doorbuster sale at Target, but even at $80, this is a great value, with potentially hours and hours of shouting, laughing, uproarious fun!

  • With only witch doctor tombstone beta and minotaur there is not many different fight combos you can make. By the way did bronco used to be in the game?

    Just got this for my son for his 5th birthday. He is absolutely obsessed with battlebots and has been playing with it non stop since he opened it. Hubby and I are having a lot of fun with it too! Hopefully more remote controlled battlebots will be available in the future.
