Nothing too special.  Mostly wanted to improve from Sonar's Problems and just make a third iteration of the Radar series.  I think the speed is much better with NPC's instead Magmotors.

Looks cool. I like the skin, colored typhoon, and the tail kind of thing especially

Kinda an extenderbot but with the backside as a chassis skin.  A small little twist of my style, in a way.  I'm debating having an alternate configuration with maybe re skinned drums, but the Dreadnought discs look cool maaan.

Treads are funky, but still cool I guess.



Modular design from a older bot I made a while back.  Mostly wanted to take the Spinner configurations and use re-skinned Mechavore and Minion Discs cause those are always fun to skin.  More fun than using more Typhoon Teeth than needed.

Looks great and clean. The reskinned discs are particularly cool. My only problem is the partially exposed motor on the overhead. May look better if you can conceal or mount it more with extenderwork

Improvements to HeartBreaker.  Technically in its third incarnation, but I don't recall anymore.  Haven't really tested it, but it should do better against spinners now it actually has some speed behind it this time.  Trading Magmotors for NPC Fasts seems much better already.  Also tempted to reskin the Storm Skirts slightly, but the purple-ish already helps give contrast, but maybe a hot pink might suit the name tag better.

Newer version of SnowStorm, and my word this so far has been one of the best versions of SnowStorm yet.  E-Tek Drive making this much faster and more agile, Dual Storm Bursts with just panels in the front to give more strength in the flippers as a whole, and more armor as a whole to last longer.  I can't wait to enter this thing in a HW tournament... if there is any that would allow this.

Pretty cool. Also Etek drives. Wow. That's actually a pretty good use of it. Hope it will be able to redeem itself in a future tourney after it's OW performances

not really seeing why people wouldn't allow this thing, and yeah, dual Storm bursts is a really good setup for front hinged flipper, Soundwave 2 uses that and it's really strong

suprising choice of drive considering how huge and bulky E-Tek Drive gearboxes are, but you sure seem to make it work, i wonder if you could BFE the wheels inwards so the axle doesn't poke out as much, but i guess the axle would start poking out the rim due to how Taz wheels are shaped.

how good does it handle spinners ? that shallow wedge and lower steel wedge seem like a HS's nightmare

Overhauled the Players that were entered in Robogames Series 1 cause multibots are still kinda fun.  Improvements include much faster drive and better wedge for the most part.  Untested in combat as I don't feel like Ai'ing these at the moment, but testing them in the garage proven they are much quicker and should be able to work better.  Hopefully they don't cause friendly fire either.  And yes, the name and theme is kinda copied from one of NFX's ARC bots, but I couldn't come up with a better name for these two, so it'll do.

Kinda showed this off already, but I feel I should post it here just in case:



Yes, this is most likely going to be the version of the Juggernaut for the special side event.  Kinda took some notes from Craaig/cephalopod's Havox made for GTMRW about three-ish years ago. (Wow already?  Damn I just feel old now.)  Mostly went with this idea of the Sir Killalot style bot since the saw blade represents the logo of Deathmatch, and really, if a House Robot didn't have something representing the logo, then that's kinda cheating.  The claw is the only thing I'm not too proud of.  It barely even lifts an opponent, let alone it's own weight.  I almost want to scrap the claw for a flamethrower/hammer, which is a version I have here:



On the other hand, I fear this might be slightly redundant for weapons, so I'm more or less trying to figure out which would be more fun in the end.

NICE! Makes me want to make my OWN house robot. (I probably should)
