SHARP TOYS: Mind The Blades

What should you be staying sharp for?

Sharp thinking garage tinkerers, aerospace engineers, Hollywood prop designers, geeks and greasemonkeys all over the United States have discovered the secret of kicking ass without getting hurt - BattleBots.

BattleBots are pint sized weapons of destruction operated by model car controllers, armed with an array of sawblades, crushers, grinders and spikes.

The dinky droids square off in a hazard filled ring, competing in four weight divisions.

For robot fighting enthusiasts it’s serious business. To non droid-dudes, it’s really funny.

BattleBots!
