It has a kind of mutant theme.
Hence the weird skin, spiky lifter tail thing. And, as such, the antennae.

All just for show.

blah blah blah muted blah blah blah broken post limit blah blah WHATEVER I RETURN.

Have some robots for the tournament.











And just for a giggle, a couple of rejected ideas for my Battlebots 6 heavyweight. Caused me a lot of grief, building one. They'll get re-used, I'm sure.

What do you mean?


All robots are heavyweights, unless specifically stated (eg, The Red Dragon and Cataclysm), if that's what you mean.

I like the first one, the axe, and the 4wd with the axe.

The first HS and the last flipper look pretty sweet.

How have I only just realised that WreckTangle is basically just one massive bullseye to practice damage potential on.

Considering this middleweight pusher as an entry for Rob's IRL tournament.

Also made prototypes for a HS, axe and flipper, but I can't be bothered to post those tonight. It's 2:30 am, I'm going to sleep.  :dumb)

Really enjoying building middleweights at the moment.

This is D.N.A, 2 ants, 5mm Steel. Drive's a little slow, but it's definitely a design I can revisit and improve.

Now that, I like! If it's slow, it could be either the 5mm Steel causing that, the 2 ants (try adding more, or different power), or whatever you used as the drive motors.
