For those who have everything: Bionic Bopper Cars

Hammacher Schlemmer’s 6-foot-tall Bionic Bopper Car has a steel-cage upper body and massive dual joysticks.

Now we’ll never outgrow Rock ’Em Sock ’Em Robots. Hammacher Schlemmer’s 6-foot-tall Bionic Bopper Cars challenge all washed-up joystick pugilists to climb in, sit down, and “duke it out” with a rival one more time for ultimate rec-room bragging rights. Each boxing robot is equipped with a gas engine, a 12-volt battery, and “two massive tire-tread-fisted arms.” Tuck yourself into the steel-cage upper body and take hold of the dual joysticks. You’ll be able to advance, retreat, spin, and throw vicious upper cuts for bouts lasting up to five hours.
