Hope you can help identify this 80's game.

It consisted of 2 robot figurines that you equipped with weapons for battling each other.

The robots were lead figurines that had a hexagonal? cross section.

There were slots in each of the faces of the robot that you could slide weapon attachments into, then you put the head of the robot on.

Total height of an equipped robot with head on was about 5cm (~2in) ... I think. It was a long time ago.

Any ideas?

Cheers.

I don't know the game you're looking for, but I am surprised that BGG has Categories for Pirates, the Mafia, and Zombies but not for Robots. Simple oversight, or something more sinister?? robot

Hmm, sounds a bit like Mechabrick: Gangs of Neon City (2014). Was this more like a toy than a game? Also, when you say 'lead', do you mean like pewter/tin, or do you perhaps mean aluminum/steel sheet?

Mark and Mike, awesome! Thankyou.

It is Combots.

For pure nostalgia sake, I am going to try and track it down. Not sure about my chances though :-)

Cheers.
