Details

The Rock' Em Sock' Em Robots? game has been scoring knockouts since 1964 but rolls out something different with this edition -- a die that determines who's knocking and who's blocking! The Red Rocker? and Blue Bomber? robots still have fists at the ready to be the first to knock their rival's block off. Manual controls on the ring's joysticks put the players in charge of all the punching and jabbing fun. But in this edition rolling the die determines which robot need to go on the defensive and hit the BLOCK button while the other goes on the offensive and hits their punch button to KNOCK! The goal remains -- Knock His Block Off!? Makes a great gift for kids 6 years and older. Colors and decorations may vary. • Players control all the punching and blocking fun! When the die rolls both a "K" and an "O" in your color try to knock your opponent's block off. If it's not your color get ready to block! • Two play at a time with these ultimate battling robots but the ultimate aim remains -- Knock His Block Off!? First to knock their opponent's block off 3 times wins. • Scoring knockouts since 1964 the game is a classic that never gets old with the signature Red Rocker? and Blue Bomber? robots and their punching action. • Makes a great gift for kids and boxing enthusiasts ages 6 years and older. • WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small Parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much and not enough. Imagination needed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have to say I was disappointed. When I opened the package and learned that there was dice included, it peaked my interest. I looked at the paper and realized that I would be confusing for younger kids to grasp. There are rules that have to be remembered when playing. It's left up to the imagination for how both players would start in a fair way. There's no timer so we just counted down from 3. After about 5 minutes we just gave up using the dice and played on our own rules, which was basically counting down. I wish it wasn't so tedious but wish it was more structured to play it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A fun spin on the original but not as fun [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My son kept telling me that he wishes we had gotten the original game instead. Having the ability to block punches and using the dice to determine who hits seemed fun to me but I think my kids just wanted the ability to keep punching until a robot's head popped off. That being said, my 7 yo son thinks this is hilarious. It definitely tests your reflexes, and it's pretty funny when you hit the other robot. We have it out on our coffee table just for a quick jaunt here and there but otherwise it doesn't hold our attention for more than 5 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge hit! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My boys (6 and 3 year olds) have been playing with this toy for hours! They have been playing it with the dice, but also making up other games with them. They both highly approve. The only small criticism I can see with this toy is that the hit arm is spring loaded and the block arm is not. Therefore the block button is slightly harder to push, giving the blocker a disadvantage. But this in no way takes away from the fun they are having. This will definitely go on my list of birthday presents to give at future parties.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great concept, poor mechanisms [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Rock "Em Sock 'Em Robots were very fun to play with for my child, but unfortunately it was limited to the quality of the product. The Red side robot buttons worked well and and were easy to press for my 9 year old. Unfortunately, the Blue side was hard to press, even for an adult. The concept of the game was fun, sadly the mechanisms of the toy made it difficult to play. Aside from this, the packaging dates the toy, making it less appealing at first. Maybe updating the packaging could make it look more fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good-Quick Game [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The game is fun when played at randomly spontaneous times, but if you actually sit down and play the game for a large amount of time it becomes dull. Winning feels much to easy in the game and is just not that enticing after about 15 minutes. It is a game that I would pull out every month bang on it with someone for about 10 minutes and the forget about for another month. But I’d say its worth having because it is a blast for the first 10 minutes and not too serious or time consuming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun spinoff of rockem sockum robots [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This game is a super fun take on traditional rock ‘em sockem robots. You roll the dice that has k and o and then try to block your opponent from knocking your robots head off. My kids and I spent hours playing and the game was super easy to put together. The game is not hard to get the hang of so my 4, 6, and 9 year old all were able to participate. It is the perfect game to get some laughs at family game night!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great throw back toy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great toy for our boys and gave my husband some great memories of his rock'em sock'em and the many hours he spent playing with his friends. Love that the dice tells you what button to strike. Sometimes you make several rolls of the dice without making a strike or block- its fun to see the kids anticipation build. Over all toy is a nice size for easy storing and if you wanted to travel with it. Its nice that the heads come attached to a string otherwise you would spend time searching for a head that flew off. Occasionally my boys had to search for a dice because that went flying off the table in their excitement. Only con we could come up with is it would be nice that it comes with a easy scoring system- currently you would have to use a piece of paper or try and remember the score in your head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knocker'em Blocker'em [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Super fun and exciting game!!!! An excellent twist and spin from the original Rock'em Sock'em game. My family and I Knocker'ed Em and Blocker'ed Em for countless hours on several occasions and absolutely had a blast!!!! It's great for holding the interests of youngster's and adults alike. Everyone who played fell in love. I would definitely recommend this game to my friend's and family with out a doubt!! The construction of the game was very study and built for lots of long lasting fun to come. It's really very easy to put together as well as take back down for storage. I love that it creates great hand/ eye coordination. Re - action time is tested and is a must. Even the rules are fun!!! I would give this game an A+. Absolutely a great idea!!!! Works great for keeping the kiddos off all the screen/ video game time. Fantastic Job Everyone!!!! Thank you!!!!
