Long, long before ROBO-ONE was even dreamed of, and long before most of the ROBO-ONE players were even born, probably about the time that their parents were graduating from high school and worried about finding a job and raising a family, humanoid robots were already busy battling it out in the ring. 

The year was 1966, and the two robots were named "Blue Bomber" and "Red Rocker." Kids all over the United States, and probably Europe, would spend endless hours trying desperately to "knock the block" off their opponents robot.
