Tamiya Robocraft Series

The Tamiya Robocraft series consists of robots with unique movements achieved using motor-driven gearboxes, crank plates, and linkage rods. Transparent plastic bodies and gearbox cases make it easy to watch the mechanics of the system in action, providing a fun and educational experience. Assembling a Robocraft robot kit is as simple as screwing and snapping parts together and cable ends are rubber-capped with cut areas pre-marked for easy wiring. The only tool you will need is a screwdriver, though a diagonal cutter could come in handy. No soldering is required!
