This is Magnolia, an overhead built off F1Krazy's chassis for the chassis swap thing. Coincidentally, it's my first build in the new crash pack. Came out pretty well for an overhead, all things considered, though the white chassis made a different style of splash necessary. Drive is slow as sh**, the weapon is only a 4-mag bc the chassis was just too small for a 6-mag, but the great chassis armor should help make up for the lack of power. At least I'd hope.

in HS's you generally want more weight invested into the weapon motor rather than more chassis armor because "your weapon is your armor", aka it punts the opponent away. though sometimes a heavily armored HS is nice.

Tried to get a 6-mag in, but it was just a little too big to fit there. Getting a dual perm in a 20 cm chassis would be lol as well

Bot dump incoming

 

First up is Starfall, my take on a nightmare clone, with a metal-inspired name. It came out a bit too narrow to work all that great, but the weapon is damn good when it actually gets into play. Plus, it's a different style of build for me, and I personally think it looks really cool. Maybe I'll try to widen the front in the future to get it working like the real Nightmare.

 

Firebrand, the resut of me cloning ICEwave in my infinite originality, but I gave it a flamethrower out the front wedge because that wouldn't cause the thing to blow up if it took damage no sir. Weapon is underpowered just like any overhead using a motor short of a ****ing 6-mag, but it looks cool as heck and can dish out some good hits.

 

Finally, Dead Man's Hand, my take on Aces & Eights had Battlebots 6.0 happened for Orc's 2004 Robot Combat tourney. The biggest change is obviously the tiny as **** drum that was all the rage to add to a featureless wedge back in the early 2000s. Overall I'm really happy with how it came out, especially with the black plates the real Aces & Eights had.

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

Another bot dump because I have a lot of unfinished bots
 

First up, the classic 4WD vert of Battlebots' original run, Village Idiot. Based it on the real plans for Village Idiot before Season 6.0 got cancelled, featuring dual flywheels, a bit more of a frame going on in this version. It has no hinged wedge, though, so don't expect any stunning performances. After all, it is an idiot.

 

Oh god oh **** oh n-

For Pokken Tournament (build for it please), I created Hoppip. It was only natural that it'd be an overhead spinner, with its propeller leaves and all. The most interesting things to mention are the face, which I'm extremely proud of because it actually uses colors from Hoppip's official art, and the dual-perm I shoved int it to power the spinner. Yep. Hoppip ain't ****ing around.

 

Finally, an original bot, Pressure Point. This was originally going to be an Apocalypse clone, but due to RA2's sh**ty burst limits and negative feedback, I ditched the side hammers and went full axe. In testing, it's surprisingly fun to drive and extremely stable. Got the skin finished today, and I'm really happy with how that came out as well.
