Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots

Lego RC Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots

Regular readers of this little corner of the internet will know that our mythical Elven workforce is often spectacularly violent. Frankly we wouldn’t put up with them if it weren’t for the fact that TLCB Elves can sneak into places that we can’t, we only have to pay them in meal tokens and Smarties, and – if we’re honest – we have a strong aversion to manual labour. It’s better if we send the Elves out and sit in a nice comfy chair…

Anyhoo, this Elven love of violence is rarely matched in the creations they bring back (although they often find a way), but today one of our smelly little workers discovered a pair of creations that’s almost as violent as they are.

This wonderful pair of remote control Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em style Technic robots is the work of R. Skittle of Flickr, and not only can his creations remotely drive around, they can really punch one another too! Both arms have a remotely controlled action that aims to dislodge their opponents’ head, so you can ‘knock his block off’.

We like this idea very much and thus we’re going to conduct some ‘research’ with a couple of ‘volunteer’ Elves. Whilst we see who’s the better boxer, Elf or Robot, you can see more of R. Skittles’ robots on Flickr via the link above, where you can also find a link to Lego Ideas so you can vote for the concept to become an official LEGO set. Still not convinced? Take a look at the video below!
