An update with some more robots! First up is Crocognaws...I don't have to say what it is based on, do I?  :mrgreen: That aside, it replaced my previous HW entry into DemonOfTomorrow/Doot's current contest!



Next up is Tantrusk...it's based on an elephant! I really liked the idea I had for Cobra and wanted to incorporate it into another animal themed robot...an elephant's trunk was the first thing that came into my mind!



Lastly for today is my first attempt at an extenderbot, Carapace! I was inspired by TheRoboteer's extenderbot and wanted to make my own! I consulted him for advice and I'm quite happy with how it turned out!



As always, any advice/thoughts/etc are appreciated! Thank you! :D

Not much I can say that I haven't already said. You're getting really good at creating these super aesthetically pleasing bots. Your animal ones are particularly good. Really like Crocognaws and Tantrusk. Carapace kinda reminds me of if Sunshine Lollibot was actually effective looking. Only change I'd suggest is swapping out the wheels on Carapace and maybe dropping the chassis armour to try and get it within the heavyweight limit as it might be slightly lacking in weaponry for a superheavyweight

Tantrusk is fantastic. The angle connectors look really out of place though, how come you can't swap them with the IRL extender angles?

Maybe aestethics?

Thank you, I'll try and make those changes to Carapace!

Never thought of a tongue, I'll see what I can do! :D

Thanks a lot! I started using IRL extenders after I made Tantrusk, I'll see what I can do with those now!

Maybe aestethics?

In that case, the steel extenders and angles would be fine to match the iron spikes.

Those three bots look pretty great. The themes you come up with are awesome.

One slight gripe is that some of the extender work on Carapace is a little messy (looking at the orange extenders just sort of balanced on the front), but that can be cleaned up pretty easily with angle extenders to connect to the blue ones.

Thank you very much, that means a lot! I've changed that part of Carapace a bit, I do believe it looks better now (as seen below!) I also looked at Tantrusk but I do prefer the extenders that it was already: think they stand out a bit more. :)

So, some updates and some robots I forgot to add last time! I added a tongue to Cobra as TGM suggested (it moves too!) which also makes it a Heavyweight now.


I changed parts of Carapace, including the teeth, the orange parts at the front and the back panel! It is now a Heavyweight too!


Now for the two robots I forgot to add last time: first up is Monstargh, my new Super Heavyweight entry for DemonOfTomorrow/Doot's latest tourney!


Lastly comes a robot some of you may be familiar with if you've seen my Stock showcase/know me from Banter Wars: this is a DSL version of my robot Bot Lesnar! It is very different but I wanted to give it the trademark "uppercut fist" thing the Stock version has. It is a weird design!


Thank you for reading/giving feedback! :D

i really like monstargh! you could definitely do those right angles on the wheelguards using the square extenders though, which would make them look a lot better

bot lesnar needs its disc lower to the ground and also some support for the mag motor

Thanks bud, I'll get to work on those changes!

Thank you very much!

Here's something else I've put together: Chariot!

There are a few issues with this robot (can't drive too well, chassis mistakes and ideas I had while making it that would be too problematic to incorporate into this version) I plan to make a second version that incorporates these changes in the next few days. I just figured I'd show you all this version so you could compare when the other is done.  :mrgreen:

Thank you very much! The animal pulling the chariot will be the main chassis in the new version and it could very well be a boar  ;) I'm just seeing what people suggest so I'll take that idea on board!

Wow, thank you everyone! All your comments made my day/night and I'm still buzzing to the point that I got to work on the 2nd version of Chariot right away to show you all!

So it is a brand new bot, the dinosaur thing is the main chassis pulling the chariot itself.  :mrgreen: I'm probably gonna make some tweaks to it, including changing the armour as well as possibly changing the drive motors.
