For generations, children have battled it out with the classic game Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots. The objective: punch your opponent's bot until its head pops up. Then, the loser resets and the friendly fight continues. For the highly anticipated new film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Mattel gave the toy a cool upgrade by turning the usual red and blue robots into the warring comic book protagonists.

Instead of the heroes losing their heads, you know you've won this contest when the other player's figure "flies" off its platform, according to Amazon. The game's Batman dons the Bat Armor exosuit that is shown in the movie trailers, while Superman wears the classic red-and-blue suit and cape. The toy will join a host of other Mattel special editions of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, including Toy Story 2, Superman Returns, and Masters of the UniverseYou can pick up your own Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots: Batman v. Superman Edition for $25 on Amazon.
