HUGELY DISAPPOINTING! Mar 08, 2005
By Tim Janson
Like many baby boomers, I had the original toy myself as a kid. As much as we may like to believe it, the old classic one was not perfect either. It always seemed like one robots head popped off much easier than the other, or the rubberbands came off underneath. Time has tended to make us look back on these toys much more fondly than we did when we actually owned them.
That said, these "new-fangled" versions are extremely poor quality. First of all it just feels flimsy. It certainly is not as durable and heavy as it used to be. Second it seems that one robot is always overly sensitive while the other needs to be hit with a sledgehammer to get the head to pop up. And of course you don't have the trademark, "ZZZZZZZZZZ" sound that the old metal teeth used to make when the head popped up. Our kids must have thought we were nuts to have enjoyed this so much and we have to try and explain how it "used to be better!" The designers who made this should be forced to play it non-stop for 8 hours a day. Shame on Mattel for ruining a classic toy.

The new Rockem Sockem robots... Nov 02, 2001
By Thomas A. Mulichak
I was disappointed to find that the Rockem Sockem robots I remember so well as a kid had magically shrunk down to pint-sized replacements. I would have been completely satisfied if they had retained thier size, which in turn would have made them retain their original greatness. The lesson here boys...if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Not like we remembered Feb 15, 2002
By Laura M. Griffin
My husband and I were delighted when we saw one this favorite childhood toy back in circulation.We got it for our two sons for Christmas. It took forever to assemble. The Blue guy's head is so sensitive that it pops up when you are only making him punch. So no one wants to be blue. What's the point? And what happened to the signature "scream" when the head pops up? Just a shame that the quality isn't the same.

Not Worth The Money!!!! Nov 22, 2005
By Liz Claiborne
Do not waste your money on this toy at all!! The robots heads pop-up without even being hit. The robots are always falling off the ring and they aren't that easy to snap back on. It was disappointing to play this game. My kids have given up ont his game and it just sits on the shelf.

READ THESE REVIEWS BEFORE BUYING - PLEASE!!! Feb 15, 2005
By C. Stephens
"Mom of the Fab 5"
I bought this for my kids and can second all of the reviews I read that are disappointed with the game. The blue guy's head NEVER goes up. The robots are always and easily popping off. And yesterday, one of the yellow posts that holds up the white "rope" around the boxing ring snapped off and is impossible to fix. It's virtually ruined as no replacements parts are available. GOOD LUCK trying to get any help at the MAttel Website or 1-800 number. I am very disappointed in this product and highly recommend you consider something else. It's a shame because I could see where our whole family would have lots of fun if it worked and was sturdier.
