Bandai Bot Attacks Humans


One of Bandai's toy robots seems to think the time to revolt has come. The bots are based on the Engine Sentai Go-onger TV series and can turn into armored vehicles. For 14 kids, it meant finger chomping time and one 3 year-old had to give up the tip of one of his pinkies for the cause. The toy sold for about $70.00 and the company has received complaints from a total of 85 parents. From what we could gather from the translation, children are cautioned against getting too close to the robots' knees. About 170,000 of them that were sold in Japan from Sept. 20 through the end of the year. We are wondering how much terror they will have to inflict before there is a recall of the evil doer.
