The legs on Xtremely average look very thin and flimsy. Apart from that, looks good.
Oh they are. Even angled outward it's hard to prevent quick removal by spinners. Probably gonna try to shorten them as much is functionally possible in the future.

The robots are cool, but what is BvW2?
Black vs White 2 (or whatever the kids are calling it these days). An IRLish tournament of smacktalk and tomfoolery.
Black vs White 2, do you mean Light vs Dark 2?

I think we have a new Halitosis here.
what a n00b
Anyways those are some cool bots you have there JDG. As LRA2 said, you never cease to amaze me. :thumbup

Move on, those are great bots jdg37! I not only like the fact that you skin the disk of Lin Fen, but I happen to like some of the character behind some of the bots. The mole for example just feels like a real mole with the paws and the black extenders, representing the black fur of a mole that make me what to fall in love like with Tor2uga that was so well made. I don't really have a lot to critique, but you're doing great.

Ps. Shout out to Mazakari for the disc skin (downloaded his bot dump and inherited some skins)

Early stage concept.  It's a cookie, it's a crab, it's Mr Cookie.  MW, Al5(?), invertible, miniminion disc on a flatmotor.

Most pertinent fix is I need to widen the large claw spread so that opponents can go deeper and get hit by the disc.  Fast and fun to use though.

Oh and maybe I'll skin the disc too.  Could skin bot and claws to be a crab, and make the disc a cookie, who knows.

Since I haven't truly showcased a bot in a while, here is the current version of Tiger Beat.

MW, Ti3 armor.  A reused chasis that I flipped to have a modified multitooth drum running off the flat end.

y'know this bot is cool and all but if i were you i'd have a swiss army configuration of 2 mech discs stacked together. just in case

Seriously though, good work. not sure using sawblades are a good idea but whatever looks coolest. just maybe go swiss army so you can have a traditional sort of disc as well as a sawblade.
Reigning DSL HW Champion, with 2 victories so far: One over Ty4er and one over DSC.
Runner-Up in The Cybernetic Colosseum HW division.

You don't have to like me. You don't have to respect me fully. But you do have to acknowledge what I've achieved.

I, for one, welcome our new Apanx overlord.

It's definitely more on the gimmicky irl side (it did start off inspired by Wrecks sans walking legs). Either way though, it may end up morphing into a more competitive bot later on. Head on though the stacked 4-5 sawblades still can pack a punch

Trying something different for Yugi's no spinners tourney.  Please forgive the lazy and spacious inside and lazy skinwork.  Not big on making flippers and wanted to try with a slappy blade for some reason.  Also cambered wheels.  HW, Pl10 I believe.

No love for the DOOMbird.  So here is HW entry #2, Mantis Shrimp.




Also throwing out half of my multibot third entry.  Meet Coyote, really a MW bulked up to 550kg to team with a LW distraction bot.

Eh, not very. The slaphappy blade isn't really made for wedging.

You could make it slightly skinnier and longer so the blade is flush with the chassis edge and just let the wedgelets do their job, but I don't think that warrants a full rebuild.

Coyote looks sweet.

So haven’t updated in a while, busy with new position at work and other life bits. So gonna dump a few bots/teasers from mobile.


(Mostly) failed attempt at a combo shell/hammer bot ala Eye of the Storm (obscure old MW battlebot)


Current state of my MW Swiss bot plans for Kurt. If Tor2uga and Goblin Shark(🦈❤️) has an ugly baby.


And current state of an upgrade to Terror Wheel after I sent of off to do war with the orcs, where it achieved much (if slightly salty) success.
