This new Robocraft Series item is perfect for young aspiring robot builders. Forward/reverse and left/right movements are produced by two motors in pre-assembled gearboxes, which are controlled by a 2-stick, 2-channel remote controller with self-neutral function. In addition, the mouth section is linked to the legs to recreate opening/closing movement. The teeth positions in the mouth section can be freely arranged as well. This fun kit is assembled using screws, and a screwdriver is included to make the task even easier. Transparent body allows viewing of internal mechanics. Includes 1 meter long control cable. Requires two R6/AA/UM3 alkaline batteries (sold separately).

New to the popular Robocraft Series is the Mechanical Fish. The movement of the crank arm is translated into the tail's left and right movement allowing it to swim. As opposed to the previously released blowfish (Item 71114), which had its body above the water, the upper half of this item acts as a float and allows the dorsal fin to be exposed to the surface with the rest of the fish totally submerged as it swims.
