The new Ring! Ring! is IRL, but it wouldn't be allowed into most tournaments for being weapon-spammy. Generally, more than four teeth on a single disc is frowned upon. Also, may I ask what's powering the weapon? It seems pretty underweight, which makes me wonder whether the weapon motor is less powerful than it could be.

Rusty is even more underweight, and the way the Sir K claws are perched on the end of the bar looks pretty precarious. IRL, those would probably snap off after a couple of hits. You should use large Typhoons for that instead

I think blue is either overweight or underweight

It's underweight, as it says it's suppose to be a SHW. Also, SHW weight limit is 1200, so maybe use that 200+ weight for some wheel armor.
If you are looking for someone who can make good robots, make good drawings, have support for you and will always be by your side, look somewhere else. The only time those things are associated with me is like all the time someone has associated reliability with Craig Danby.

Little Rust is underweight, even for a cruiser. Remember, build to the weight limit if you want to get the most out of your robots. For Little Rust, you could have better armour, another burst piston for another flipping arm or more batteries for power. Also it would help if you did post an screenshot of your bot's internals, so we can tell you if your using the right amount of batteries, right drive motors etc. We know from Little Rust that you're using NPCs for drive, but what about battery power or what type of burst is powering the weapon etc.?

Looks he is using a VDMA very short for his burst motor

You should always show internal pics for bots you showcase. It will allow people to see if your chassis is compact or not, and what component you use inside to determine if they are right or wrong. In addition, what is the armor?

Second, it's minor, but you should learn how to skin. It will make your bots look more beautiful than purely using what is on the game. It's pretty easy to do honestly

Third, you should move your metal hinges inside your chassis and replace those Tazbot wedgelets with regular wedgelets, because the hinges sticking out is ugly, and the floating wedgelets are not IRL.

And fourth, always build to the weight limit. You can use the extra 24.9kg for better drive, armor, weapon, etc.

And that's all for my criticism and suggestions. However, I love the custom bar you made for your bot. It's pretty cool when people do that

You might want better drive, then replace the colsons with rubber wheels

While you had built Barricade mk closer to the cruiser-weight limit, the flipper and feeder wedge is too steep. You might want make the wedge for both the wedge and the flipper more shallow so that your opponents can actually be fed onto the wedge, instead of your opponents being able to get under your bot with ease, thus making your weapon useless against them.   

Apart from that, I wouldn't use ant batteries to power your bot. They're fine if you are using them for an antweight or beetle, but they should be avoided like the plague if you plan to use them on heavier bot due to their low power put and weight distribution. With the amount of ant batteries, you could of easily replaced them with battlepacks or blacks and still save a bit of weight in the process. One last thing is that Barricade mk 3 wouldn't be classed as IRL due to one of battlepacks intersecting the motor.

Probably the best bot you've built so far, but still several issues. You have WAY too many batteries. 2 battlepacks is enough for the motor setup you have here. You can also shrink the chassis down a ton, so it's just barely big enough to fit your internals.
