The robust (soliton-like) nature of bistable light bullets is demonstrated numerically for some illustrative models through three-dimensional switching simulations and collision studies. Bistable light bullets are propagating, spheroidal, bright optical solitons characterized by different sizes and intensity profiles but with the same energy.
