The Tornado radio controlled toy was a battling robot released at the same time as Sergeant Bash. Tornado could be bought on its own or purchased with the Sergeant Bash toy. Like the Sergeant Bash toy, Tornado came with an immobilising hot spot, hidden under the rear armour. A bump would send the panel off, and if the hot spot was hit three times, the robot would be immobilised. The spinning disc is powered by running its own wheel along the ground. Rather disappointingly, Tornado doesn't run inverted at all because the wheels on the top side are plastic and are held in place. The remote control has two sticks, and pushing both forward will drive the robot forwards and pushing the sticks back will send the robot into reverse. If one stick is forward and one stick is behind, the robot will spin. Pushing the right stick forward only will turn the robot left, and vice versa for making the robot turn right. Tornado was built for battling the other toys, and so is built like a brick. The weapon is also designed to prevent serious injury.
