These are the real Batman Vs. Superman Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots available from Mattel. The classic 'punch your opponent's head off' fighting game been updated with sound effects, and instead of their heads popping off, the whole character pops off the base when they've been defeated. Honestly, I still prefer the decapitation. Regardless, my brother and I are gonna have so much fun! Read this, which I wish I'd written:
The Ultimate Superhero Showdown Inspired by the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, it's a modern twist on an old classic! You know Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, but now Batman and Superman are duking it out! Players try to move the two legendary superheroes into position and hammer the other until one goes "flying!" Skillfully placed hits will send the other hero right off the platform! Battle it out in the ultimate showdown with realistic sounds and jaw-jolting action. Land a superhero-worthy punch to be declared the winner and hear the victorious K.O. sound. Designed for two players, this exciting game lets each opponent control his superhero by operating the corresponding mechanism with his or her thumbs. Push the right button to deliver a right hook, or push the left to punch with your hero's left arm. You can also shift your superhero's position in the ring by moving the controls left and right. Kids control the intensity of the battle with their thumb speed and expert battling skills.
That made it sound like the most exciting game you'll ever play, right? Except it's not -- it's not the most exciting game you'll ever play. The most exciting game you'll ever play is a game I invented called Only The Brave Survive. It's so exciting because there's a real chance you might die. Think of it like going skydiving, except you don't know if you got a parachute or a backpack full of dirty laundry.
Keep going for one more shot because it was available.
Thanks to Rybo, who agrees the key to winning at Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots is sweeping the leg.
