HEXBUG XL Strandbeast - 50% Larger Than The Original

HEXBUG XL Strandbeast - 50% Larger Than The Original

39.99

The Hexbug strandbeast XL is 50 percent larger than the original strandbeast and features a mesmerizing eight-legged walking mechanism that gives this complex robot its graceful smooth-walking stride. The control and extension of this mystifying micro robotic creature's intricate legs makes it look more organic than robotic. The Hexbug strandbeast XL features a radio-frequency remote control that allows the user to independently operate each side of the strandbeast's legs resulting in full-control of forward backward and turning motions. The two-channel remote control operates in three speeds (slow medium and fast) when moving forward and one speed when in reverse enabling the user to operate multiple bugs independently or at the same time and at varying speeds. This particular Hexbug was inspired by Dutch physicist-turned-artist Theo Jansen. The Hexbug strandbeast XL is available in two translucent colours exposing the electronics and mechanisms to the naked eye. Note: The remote control and XL Strandbeast must be paired correctly before use.\nSafety Information:\nWarning. Not suit

Let the sound of battle wash through the air: the pew-pew of lasers, the whirring of motors, and the soft curses as your little battling spider is hit by your enemy. Upgraded and primed for battle, these bugs are sure to make the floor of your house into a warzone. In a good way, of course. Each Battleground Spider is controlled by a remote control with super-easy controls, and they have up to a 2-metre range, allowing you a great deal of flexibility in your movement (and allowing you to keep the battle far away from your feet!). With one slate-blue and one fiery-red bug, you’ll be able to easily tell who’s on who’s side, and even better, with four different control channels you can combine two double packs to create amazing two-on-two battles. The battle itself is played out between the two bugs using their hi-tech sensors and blasters, the bugs registering hits and dishing them out with light. They come with awesome sounds to add to the fun, and really create the sense of that sci-fi futuristic combat. The Spiders and remote controls are both powered by LR44 bat

Let battle commence, with this awesome Battleground Tarantula double pack! This incredible set comes with two amazing spidery robots that scuttle into combat at your command! The set comes with two Battleground Tarantulas, one in deep slate-blue and one in bright fiery-red, both with battleworn deco designs that really sell the hard-wearing battle machine aesthetic. Each bot is approximately 10 centimetres long, with eight legs that crawl in a freakish-yet-endearing manner.  The set comes with two tiny infra red remote controls – one per spider-bot – with a two-metre range. The remotes allow the bots to move forward and backwards, turn left and right, and most importantly fire their weapons at one another. Stylised as a little gatling gun, the weapons are designed to target the sensor atop the Tarantula’s body, and the Tarantula even has a little recoil when it fires for added effect. Complete with futuristic sound effects, these make for some stunning little sci-fi toys and, as they can work on 4 different IR channels they're perfect for team play with up t

The UK did it first, then the US joined in with their version of Robot Wars – Battlebots. Don’t worry, we aren’t angry that they have done this, in fact, we’re really happy that we have twice as many robot battles happening on our TV screens. From the creators of Vex Robotics and Hexbug we have the amazing Remote Control Battlebots. The two most popular robots from Battlebots are here to bring a touch of metal crunching fun into your world. Only two bots are available so far - Witch Doctor with the battering ram and Tombstone with a spinning blade and each is picked at random so you’ll get a surprise when you order. Set up an arena and prepare your robots for battle. Each robot comes with an Infrared remote control and three removable parts. Charge, smash and corner you opponent to try and knock off all their parts and be declared victorious. Please note: If you select the single pack, one robot will be chosen at random. If you select the Rivals, one of each of the robots will be dispatched.

The Hexbug Spiders are an innovation in insect robotics and will scuttle around with creepily realistic movements. Each spider comes with six angled legs that each move independently with a bright red LED for an eye, so they aren’t exactly anatomically correct but they’re still pretty cool! With the remote control you can move quickly or slowly in all directions and rotate their head 360° making this RC toy even spookier! Five different vibrant colours are available and you can play with two Spiders at once so a spider race is definitely on the table. 5 x AG13/LR44 batteries are already included with the set and each spider measures approximately 10cm x 10cm x 10cm.

If you’re afraid of creepy crawlies and things with waaaaaaaaaay too many legs then look away now! The Hexbug Scarab is a spine-tingling bug that’s quicker than a seagull wearing a jetpack (no, really, it is). It’s the fastest and most aggressive-looking of all the Hexbug robots so all you’ll be able to see of its little legs is a blur as it zooms across the kitchen floor at a bajillion miles an hour. The clever robot boffins at Hexbug Central designed this colourful fella to mimic real-life insects by incorporating all sorts of clever techniques that allow the Scarab to dart this way and that, jumping back and changing direction as soon as it encounters an object in the way. The result is a truly frenetic mechanical bug that looks completely alive and a little mad!

    How to find Gift Ideas

    At the top of each page you'll see a row of orange tabs labelled with types of occasions (Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc.) When you hover your pointer over these, a row of additional choices will pop up below. For example, if you hover over "Anniversaries", the additional options that appear are "Any", "Silver", "Pearl" and so on. Choose one of the additional options, and you'll then see a selection of ideas for that occasion. These are just a few of the hundreds of ideas we have for each occasion, and they include ideas for men and women and at various prices. If you don't see anything there that catches your attention, or if you'd like to see some more suggestions, use the Search Options (see the next topic).

    Using the Search Options

    On every page you'll see a box, just below the row of orange tabs, where you can enter some details about the person you're buying a gift for.

    Country

    Currently, we only have gifts from UK suppliers. We will be adding suppliers form the US and Australia/New Zealand soon; if you would like us to let you know when these are available, send us a note via the Contact form.

    Price

    There are two boxes for price: From and To. Enter the range that you are prepared to spend in these boxes.

    Age

    This box is shown on most pages, but in some cases (eg, Newborn Baby or 18th Birthday) it isn't shown. If it's there, enter the person's age (take a guess if you're not sure!)

    Gender

    You probably know the gender of the person ... but in some cases (for example if you are buying a wedding anniversary gift for a couple) this isn't relevant. In that case, choose Either.

    Hobbies and Interests

    If you know that the person has a particular hobby or interest, such as golf, sailing, horses, and so on, you can enter up to three of them into the three boxes. Be sure to put just one interest in each box! When the search is done, it will only find things that are relevant to those interests.

    Go Fer It!

    When you're happy with your search options, click the Go Fer It button. We'll then search our database and present you with a list of suggested gifts for that person. They are displayed in a scrolling conveyor-belt style list - scroll along to see what's there. When something catches your eye, click on it and the product's full details will open in a new window.

    Saving Your Searches

    After you've done a search you will see an option, above the scrolling conveyor belt, to save your search. This makes it easy for you to come back another time and quickly find more ideas for the same person, or for another person of a similar age. You'll need to create a GiftGofers account (it's very simple and only takes a minute) and then you will be able to go to the My Stuff tab to review your saved searches (and lots of other useful stuff!).

    Wish Lists

    As you are browsing the super ideas we suggest for you, you'll probably see some things that you would love to get for yourself. When this happens, click on the Wish List icon to save that item to your personal Wish List. You will then be able to send your Wish List to your friends and family so they'll know exactly what to get YOU for your next birthday or Christmas present!
