The Matilda Radio Controlled Robot
|Year of Release||2000|
The Matilda radio controlled toy was one of the cheapest of the House Robot R/C toys at £29.99-£39.99. It's rather fast and has a recharge time of about five hours when the battery is completely empty. The robot has just as great maneuvrability as the real-life counterpart, as it can turn very fast in any direction without moving forwards or backwards. The robot can also spin on the spot at quite a high speed.
These robots were meant for battling the other R/C house robot toys, and are strong and sturdy to reduce the risk of breakages. Like all other radio controlled house robot toys, Matilda has weaponary that is remote controlled. The chainsaw doesn't move at all, but the lifting tusks can be operated by remote, they will fire as far up as they can, before the stems hit the bottom of the top of the front of the shell. The tusks make the robot good for pushing as they give a very low ground clearance. Like the other R/C toys bar Sergeant Bash and Tornado, the Matilda R/C toy doesn't have an immobilising hotspot.
