RC mutant goes anywhere it wants

Robot toy is has pincers, lasers, a disc shooter--and is omnidirectional.

Mattel

With an endless stream of remote-controlled toys on the market, it's hard to get excited about yet another entry to the fray. But the "Tri-Clops Mutant" is different, and not just because it's got a great name.

The features alone make it worth the $100 price in our opinion--pincer claws, laser targeting and a disc-firing cannon--but what makes this three-wheeled monster unique is its omindirectional movement, which gives it exceptional abilities to maneuver around obstacles and opponents alike. Manufacturer Tyco calls it "a blend of robotic and organic styling." We call the first item on our holiday wish list.
