The 10-inch tall Attacknid maneuvers easily in any direction and has a 360-degree rotating head that can rapid fire projectiles up to 30 feet
Armor pieces snap onto the legs and fly off if they're hit, while users aim for a main target area called the "Battle Brain"
Wow! Stuff has launched it's Combat Creatures robot toy line just in time for the holidays, starting with the Attacknid
Where the Attacknid really shines though is when two or more of them get together to battle
The first wave of Attacknids can only shoot foam discs from an attachable "Dissector Bolt 'N' Battle Weapon," but future weapons will clip on to fire ping pong balls and foam darts
Wow! Stuff has released the Attacknid first, but has stated that other designs are planned for the Combat Creatures brand as the company expands it into a full line of battling robots
Earlier this year, inventor Jamie Mantzel unveiled a prototype of a remote-controlled robot he had nicknamed "the greatest toy in the universe" in a YouTube video that garnered over 2 million hits in three days. In the video, an exuberant Mantzel demonstrated how the six-legged creation could fire different toy weapons and react to hits when battling another bot. Now, just in time for the holiday season, distributor Wow! Stuff has expanded the idea into a full-fledged toy line, called "Combat Creatures," starting with the inventor's original model, now named the "Attacknid."
