From the creators of the Transformers ukulele comes another throwback bot in the form of the Roc 'em Soc 'em Ukulele.

The Roc 'em Soc 'em Ukulele brings back the classic battle bot toy from the 80s, which calls for two individual bots to fight it out until a head pops open. Clearly this robot has been defeated, but at least it now serves a musical purpose. The body and the neck of the instrument is shaped into the iconic red robot that stands opposite of the blue one. The ukulele itself is constructed from maple wood, which gives the instrument an earthy tone even with the use of red paint.

For those looking for something a little more personal, the design team takes customized requests for this toy-inspired instrument.
