Hexbug at Toy Fair 2020: The Junk Bots arrive on Earth

Hexbug has been in the robotics games for years now. If you’re ever watched Battlebots, you are almost guaranteed to have seen the company name as a sponsor on multiple bots.

The company has made huge strides in bringing robotics home with its popular Nano line, but now it is going even a step further with the introduction of Junk Bots.

Junk Bots will be a line of 36 different robots that you will purchase through blind packaging. You’ll receive all of the parts needed to build at least one robot, and a picture of what that character should look like, but it’s ultimately up to you what you build.

The Junk Bots will be sold in single packs for $4.99, a dual pack with one power module for $9.99, and a four-pack with two power modules for $19.99. The line will launch in the fall and will be found at all major retailers.

You can learn more about the toys now by visiting the Junk Bots website.

Nano has been one of the biggest releases for Hexbug over the years, but one issue with them has been corralling them. Hexbug is releasing three sets this year that will let you keep them a bit more under control.

Nano Zone will come with one Nano Flash and two Nanos and quite a bit of fencing for $19.99.

The Nano Zone will sell for $29.99 and come with two Nano Flash and three Nanos.

Wrapping things up will be Nanotopia for $49.99 with three Nano Flash and four Nanos. Not only will this one included fences, but it will also have ramps and tracks.

Wrapping things up for the Nano line will be Dragon that will sell for $24.99.

Closing out this year for Hexbug, will be the new Mobots named Rambles and Fetch. They will be able to talk to one another as well as be able to deliver items around your house.

As we mentioned earlier, Hexbug has a rich history with Battlebots, and this year is no different as they bring two more of them to toy form. Both Duck and Rotator will be available individually or a two-pack called Rivals.

And, finally, the Vex Construction set will go even taller this year and will retail for $79.99.

We’re excited for Junk Bots, but those Nano sets definitely had us smiling at the show.
