As well as a Grip N' Grappler,Tazbot was offered as a kit in 2001 by Jakks Pacific and Road Champs for those willing
to build their own version. The turret arm is motorized, using power from 2 AA batteries to let the arm move up and down, but the rest of the turret doesn't move on its own and even the motorized arm cannot aid in any form of self-righting like the real Tazbot. Connecting the chassis to the rest of the body can be a challenge that requires a bit more elbow grease to help the bottom align properly. Like the Mauler Metal Mechanics, this kit came with stickers, which could be added to give it the look of being damaged in battle.
