and adults love the series and in reality the show is just a
chance for anorak engineers to showcase their talents and drag
along their sons/nephew to pretend they are doing it for the
now, kid or adult, you can replay the thrills and spills of
the TV show in your own living room with The Gauntlet
playset. For your £30 you get quite a lot of bits to
keep you happy - including the X-Terminator 2 robot. The idea
here is to build a difficult assault course for your robot
and then pull it back and watch it go.
the theory at least. Sadly the robot we received seemed to
veer too far to the right meaning that it was impossible for
it to actually cross the entire length of the bridge without
falling through the gap. Hmmm! Not good. Also one of the plastic
pipes (which are used to push air through and raise the spikes)
was damaged when we opened the box.
let a couple of 10 year-olds loose on this and after 10 minutes
they were bored. Sadly this is not as exciting as it should
be and if I had bought this for a Robot Wars fan I
would be feeling a little cheated.
not really that bad, but it could have been a lot better.
