I used to love bumper cars and Rock-Em, Sock-Em Robots when I was a kid but now I can blend the best of both worlds because some genius put the two together for Bionic Bopper Cars.
Skip the toy robots and slide into this sturdy steel frame with fiberglass and aluminum body panels that comes complete with two pneumatic-powered, tire-tread-fisted arms. Grab the joysticks, press the thumb-trigger buttons, and deliver a knockout punch to the opposing robot’s head. Didn’t score that knockout the first time around? No problem because the Honda gas engine lets you keep duking it out for up to five hours, and a built-in rechargeable 12-volt battery keeps the power flowing to the electronics.
Go forward or back at a breath-taking (or not) 3mph and spin left or right to line up just right for delivering that perfect punch. Knock the other robot’s head back to score a point, and keep track of your score with the front-mounted display that’s mounted on each robot’s midsection.

The $17,000 price tag might make your eyes water a little bit but it beats taking all those punches yourself. If you order the Bionic Bopper Car from Hammacher Schlemmer by December 1st, it can be sitting under your tree on Christmas morning.
