About the Model
★This assembly kit creates a model which moves on two smaller front and two larger rear wheels, swiveling to the right when it meets obstacles such as walls. This unique movement is produced by the crown gearbox which moves the front wheels. ★Swivelbot moves forward when the way ahead is clear, and when it hits an obstacle, the front wheels stop and the crown gearbox turns to the right until the way is clear again. ★This model features a unique rounded body with semicircular bumper and front/rear wheels molded in light violet ABS resin. ★The top antenna also moves. ★Includes everything needed for easy snap-fit/screw-together assembly. Comes with stickers to decorate the model. ★Length: 102mm, width: 90mm, height: 82mm. Includes mini motor and requires R03/AAA/UM4 battery (x1) (sold separately).
