Hmmm... might as well start my own.

Here's one of my latest bots. I finally got the urge to build a poker after Hydro showcased his first attempt. :P



Meet Sucker Punch. 8 spikes and an ice pick on each piston, adding up to a total of 32 irons and 4 picks. Might build a rammer next time.

:D

Nice catch on angling the ice picks for making them touch the ground, stabilizing the thing and partly solving the front heavy problem.

Yeah, I can't fully stabilize that bot. I tips over slightly when turning.

Anyways, a preview for my next bot. I need some sleep first. :P

I still remember the day Scrap Daddy invited me to BBEANS5. Since that was our exam week, I barely had time. So I had to enter a joke bot. Then came Trojan Horse.

Of course, now you guys know how bad it was. After the exams, I decided to rebuild it. So meet Storm Worm, my very first serious bot. :P



In case you were wondering, I used Anti-Epic's bindings on the other two because I had a hard time controlling. XD

[Edit] Trying to make a pure HS, but can't frikkin' stack the blacks. X_X

Meh. Too lazy to make a splash. :P



Here's Vanishing Light, my first 36HS (hehe). Barely invertible but hey, it is my first try. :P

See those inner HS? turn them upside down.

Tribars are very weak and cover more area than HPZ's, making them easier to hit. You're more likely to lose all of your weapons with inverted tribars than upright ones.

There shouldn't be one. Also, if the two tribars are inverted, then there will probably be a driving problem if he is already having an invertability problem.

Hehe. Just fixed the invertibility problem. I just tweaked the snappers a bit upward so it won't have a problem upside down. :D

Too busy today, might post new bot tomorrow. :D

Looks similar to the layout for T-800 Terminator. I had done a 4 HP Ztek and had dropped a Weapon Motor to do wall of ram plates as weapon breakers.

Erm. They're maces. Can't see any irons. But yes, they're used very nicely.

Hehehe. That was a poker. :P

But yeah, it's clearer if you state which bot you're referring to. XD

Still busy completing my research portfolio, might post a bot next week. XD

[Edit] Does someone know how to use the other Snapper II connector correctly? When I return from the practice arena after some snapper loading, it always turns 90 degrees downward. I'm trying to replicate oH sNaP and 2 Sinister but just can't get it done. X_X
