attacknids The Gift of Bot
Attacknids, $112
I love the idea of an affordable robotic combat toy. Attacknids made a big splash on Kickstarter earlier in the year when the prototype was demo’d in the KS campaign video. These rather sophisticated walkers have weapons that shoot various projectiles and the armor on the enemy bot flies off when you score a hit. The Attacknids are the first in a planned line of “Combat Creatures.” If I were still ten, this would be what I wanted for Christmas.
