Do not post multiple bots in one post. This means that if you post a single bot, we will give you detailed advice on how to improve it. Posting numerous bots in one post leads to people not giving you good advice and generally making small comments on 1 of them.
Eh, this showcase was on page two, so I need to make up for that somehow.



First Wild Card Rally entrant.  I thought this would do much better than my other one, but it still did pretty good regardless.



The other WCR entrant.  I was pretty proud that it made it far, and that the deflector form worked better than I imagined.



The Survival tournament entrants.  I was somewhat proud of this team, except for the contrast of the weapon on the MW.



Death Battle (which is nowhere near as good as it was before just pointing that out oh sorry i went off on a tangent) Entrant.  13 Black/RotatoR style bot.  Probably could've spent more time on the logo and make it feel more creative, but I didn't have an idea, nor the time to mess around to the point where I will miss out to something less interesting or tryhard-ish.



Nothing too special here.  Just a skin update on Agent Orange which you will see in GTMRW.



Just some bot I had lying around.  Nothing special.



Another bot I had lying around.  I guess it works since Halloween is close by.

I'll admit, I've lost my touch.  Good thing I plan on retiring from bot building by the end of the year, cause I'll probably lose every bit of creativity as I lose free time.

Sorry about that :evilsmile: You got your revenge in the third-place playoff though.

The other bots all look pretty good as well. The one with the flame decals reminds me of Witch Doctor. I should try making a double-sided HS like your Death Battle entry (I already made a double-sided flipper so why not). Also something something SKELETON WAR.

It's been a while, so I'll post some Crusierweights to get back in the swing of things with IRL.



Tornado style bot with a thresher drum and an anti-spinner drum and motor burning flamethrower.



Stinger-esque that flips it's entire wedge and brace at the same time.  It's a lot of fun to play around with.



Beta clone.  Kinda messy, but I had trouble aligning the parts to be perfectly matched.  I'll probably skin the hammer to have a cool logo later as I gotta go to bed right now.

I'll probably keep going to get that spark going again and--

Good thing I plan on retiring from bot building by the end of the year

I'm a dirty liar.  You should know that by now.  Though I don't think I'll be getting myself back into competitive Stock building or anything among the lines of things like that.

inb4 i make showcase stock bot 4 months after this post.

Been building even more IRL crusierweights in some of my free time, and this one I feel more proud of showcasing than others.  For various reasons.



A Witch Doctor & Shaman style crusierweight and the combined weight is around 600 KG.  The left is the main bot.  It has a style that is closer to Brutus, with the wedges and wheels.  Reskinned the Mini Minion disc since the original is pretty ugly as hell.  The right is the distraction bot.  Has a flamethrower inside and that's about it.

Probably gonna start working on my BittyBots and Annihilation Nation entrants soon.

Looks pretty good, those dinky wheels on the front are so cyoot~

The left is the main bot.

NO! You're joking! I thought the right one was!

Bot dump since this got onto page two again.



This is Inferno and Tsunami respectively.  My BittyBots entries.  I approached this with Inferno being a rear-hinged flipper, and Tsunami being a front-hinged one.



Gee, Spearhead isn't a clone of absolutely anything at all.  I don't know what you're talking about.  Anyway, it's my first Annihilation Nation entrant and I mostly did this since the battles would be in a rumble format.  I wanted to make a third form, but I didn't have any ways to make this work with the design without making it look dumb.



Here's my secondary entrant for Annihilation Nation.  This is actually a remake of a bot that is about three years old at this point (this one). I wanted to get the weapon style like it had on the original, but I didn't have enough weight for it without making with weapon spin slower.



Man, I'm just full of original ideas aren't I?  Nothing special otherwise.  I should probably go back and skin some slots for each weapon.  Especially the flipper as the fake pistons look awkward as it is.



I'm actually kind of proud of how clean this turned out, with the exception of one weapon motor sticking out a little too much, but other than that, I think it looks pretty good.



I'm pretty sure this has been done before somewhere, but I can't quite put my finger on it.  If it has, I just hope it wasn't done by someone with a name change.

The last two need better names.  I'm open to suggestions.

About four months later...



LvD 2 entrants.  Thought the paint theme matched well enough, so... yeah.



A CW and HW with a very similar theme.  Not sure if there's an IRL CW and HW tournament going on soon beyond my knowledge, so this might be the ones I'd enter if one happens to arrive.



Not even gonna try to be sarcastic about a Tombclone.  Not much else to say.



Meh, HS with an interchangeable Cobalt & a Carbide style blade.  Cause that's a thing I guess.

It's not much, but I do have a lot of bots lying around, but I have something special prepared for the next few that I'm gonna showcase once Iron Fighters is completed.

Tombclone looks very neat. The others look good too but I'm not a fan of the flat colours for the skins. Actual bots looks pretty tight though save for the drums on Lawbreaker as Thyrus says.
Tourney Record:
BTTB4 - Runner Up
Hell's Arena - 1-0
Tag Team Tussle - 0-2, rumble winner.
RIW3- 5-2, 4th Place
BoF2 - 3-2
Two To Tango - Team None So Vile w/ Enigma - 3-2, Team Moral Ambiguity w/ Urjak - 5-2, 3rd place
RA2 Olympics London - HW Gold Medalist
256 bot tourney - The Shizzler, 4-1, top 16.
Box Of Nightmares - Faithless, 2-2
Cruisin' For A Bruisin' - 5-0, 1st place
Overall W/L = 37/18 (includes some tournaments I forgot in my sig)
