There are those who would tell you that Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots were the pinnacle of toy awesomeness in the late-60s/early-70s period. They are wrong. Behold the Kenner SSPs for '72, with adult-maddening Sonic Sound (the Visible Appearance option came later, when Malaise Era emissions regulations and insurance premiums cut SSP power while adding tape stripes and huge bumpers). Super Stocker! Detonator! King Cobra!
