When I was a kid one my favorite toys was the Robotix set that I got for Christmas one year. I played with that Robotix R-1000 for about two years. I wore out the gears and shredded the wires. It was a great toy. Now although Robotix has not yet been rebooted, there are enough hobbyists out there to keep the dream alive for us fans. Because of these hobbyists, you can still pick up the refurbished an unused kits at various websites. I just ordered a R-1000 set from Amazon and I cannot wait to start playing. Pick up a set and come on over, we can have kitchen table robot wars.
