Mechatar battling robots

These Mechatars are a range of remote control battle robots, with interchangeable USB weapons. The neat part is, they're also the subject of a free online game, in which the homeworlds of the eponymous droids are being attacked by a deadly alien enemy – so they've sent toy versions of themselves to Earth to learn how to fight.

Mechatar owners can download special missions from the game, and then enact these in real-life with their R/C bots – these can be battles with other Mechatars or little treasure hunts which test your R/C skills. Once the tasks are completed, the data is sent back to the game from your robot toy via a USB connection with your PC; the owner's onscreen character is then powered up accordingly.
