Special Comments:
The SUMO ROBOT can be controlled to attack and overpower its opponent or retreat to prepare for battle. An infrared sensor beam is emitted when detecting an opponent. Upon detection, the SUMO will charge it's opponent. Buy two and let the Sumo wrestling matches begin!  I picked this one up on Ebay.  These kits are more for learning robotics basics and are very well made.  I had a fun time assembling it.
