- "Watch other pullbacks spin helplessly into the air as this champion robot does what it does best. This accurate replica comes complete with six cones and balls, ready for a good flipping. Chaos 2 - it's flipping brilliant!"
- — Official description from the Robot Wars Online Shop
The powerful flipper, based on its real life counterpart, is activated by pushing a small button on its left hand side, though this button does not appear on the image of the toy on the back of the box despite the instructions for it being there. It has a low ground clearance to facilitate the toy's ability to throw other pullbacks around. Following the events of the real life battle with Stinger, the rear panel on the toy can be removed.
After prolonged use of the flipper, a small block used to retract the flipping mechanism would often fracture and break. The flaw was common and was noticed by a large amount of buyers. It would normally result in the flipper of Chaos 2 only retracting half way, unless aided by the user’s hand (ironically, the real robot showed a similar fault in some battles during Extreme 1). Sometimes the block would come off completely and the flipper would refuse to close. The general solution was to push the flipper down and then let it go whenever the user wanted to activate the flipper. Some users experiencing this problem have cut the spring that allows the flipper to spring up, allowing the flipper to be entirely operated by hand, much like the Dantomkia pullback.
In later releases of the model, the flipper mechanism was reinforced in an attempt to resolve the issue as well as making the front wheels individual as opposed being on an axle like before. This version also swapped its shinier plastic for a matte finish.
Chaos 2 was one of the first generation of pullback toys, and was packaged with six cones and six balls quite similar to those found on the multi-ball release included with Shunt. The cones were never seen in the pinball trials of Series 2-4.
Differences from real lifeEdit
- The two large main wheels are not driven by pullback motors, instead two additional pullback wheels are added towards the rear of the toy that are not present on the real machine, preventing the tiny rear wheels and back end from touching the ground.
- Even with the flipper pressed all the way down, the flipper does not sit flush with the surrounding sides of the robot, unlike the real life counterpart.
- The button for the flipper isn't on the real robot.
- George Francis and Ian Swann of Team Chaos converted two examples of the Chaos 2 pullback into fighting robots, as shown in Ultimate Real Robots Magazine.
