Rock 'em Sock 'em

Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots is a two-player action toy and was first manufactured by the Marx toy company in 1964.

It features two dueling robot boxers, Red Rocker and Blue Bomber, mechanically manipulated by the players, and the game is won when one player knocks the head off of the opponent.

The game was developed for the Marx toy company by the renowned toy design firm Marvin Glass and Associates, in the early 1960s and first became available to retailers during the 1964 season. The game was available in the United Kingdom during the 1970s, where it was sold under the name Raving Bonkers. The two robots were renamed, with the "Blue Bomber" becoming "Basher Bonker" and the "Red Rocker" becoming "Biffer Bonker". Marx released an updated version of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots called Clash of the Cosmic Robots in 1977. It featured robots of a design more suitable for the Space Age.

Hi, I have a vintage Marx unit. Does anyone have a broken one that I can use for spare parts?
Difficult to find. Keep an eye on eBay for a while, and if you're lucky, one for parts will show up.
