The next PWT leg is in the combat arena which means Monsieur Grand Flipper Bleu will have to take a timeout due to the lack of pits and OOTA zones. As a result I decided I'd build a new HS since I don't normally do those. Went for a kinda Wild Thing style thing with some influences from Skorpios too, though I did aim to make it pretty distinct from either of those. Obviously with only 2 small typhoons it's not gonna be particularly competitive, but it looks pretty decent I think which is IMO a rarity for HSes, and you get 3 bots in PWT anyway so my other 2 entries can do the heavy lifting competitiveness wise.

Seems like someone else built it then sent it to him to put it in his showcase.

Hey remember that stuff about not doing much damage?

Yeah that's not a thing anymore. Pretty standard fare for a bot update. Went back to it and realised there were a bunch of areas I could build smarter to save some weight without really compromising the looks at all, and with that weight I invested in a mech disc instead of the weedy shell disc + 2 small typhoons. This should certainly be more damaging, and possibly more durable too, though I'm not sure because of how frequency affects the damage that components take as well as dish out.

Certainly an improvement competitiveness wise, and visually it still looks good too, though I did kinda like the bolts on the spinner from the shell disc.

I love watching angled discs kill things. The colors and layout are great. Only nitpick would be that panel corner but those never want to line up right.

10/10 want to fight this killer pokeball.

Which panel corner are you referring to? The one in front of the wheel?

Nah, that little joint by the wedgelet. The one the game always tries to sneak in on you.

Ahh I see. It MIGHT be possible to fix it with the right combination of angle pieces. I think I've got a 22.5 degree and a 10 degree angling it inwards ATM. Maybe a 45 degree with a 10 degree in the other direction would get them meshing seamlessly. I'll have a tinker at some point soon

Underweight for an SHW, overweight for a HW ATM, but largely done visually. Will definitely be coming back to it internally though, ideally to give it more drive as it's way underpowered in that department ATM. Will likely be one of my RW3 entrants

Bunch of work done to get it in the HW limit. Dropped over 250kg which is quite a feat considering it doesn't look all that different.

Swapped to a microvore, which I would skin if doing so wasn't literal hell due to how sh** the mesh is for it, and just generally optimised my extenderwork. Did have to drop some of the wedge to Ti which I was trying to avoid, but they're fairly big plates so should still be reasonably durable. Corners are still steel.

Been having a mess around with 2.5 and wanted to make a hammer utilising the new hammer bursts and the judge gavel. This is wha I came up with. Definitely some rough edges that need ironing out particularly on the front, and it's not gonna be competitive because it has no wedge ATM. I may try to give it a dustpan of some kind in the near future if I can find a bit of weight, and that would also go some way to hiding the seam on the front pontoons where the baseplate doesn't fully line up. Largely though I think it looks decent, and it was fun experimenting with some of the new 2.5 components too.

Gave it a pan which both makes it work better and makes it look better

Dunno if anyone remembers this old thing but I did a rework. Front on the old one was entirely extenders which was absolute aids, so I fixed that, and also gave it a wee bit more shape.

Spent like 3 hours trying to sort the extenderwork at the back which was legit some of the hardest panelwork I've ever done, and I'm still not entirely satisfied (definitely a wee bit messy), but other than that I'm pretty happy.

It's a tad unerweight ATM so I may go to two VDMA front hinges for the flipper as it's currently a single storm

I blame discord for that.

Truth be told, it's a good robot. 
Though, I can't shake this nagging voice in the back of my head wanting to say "haha, Roboteer made another black and blue flipper."
I have several opinions.

I do get feedback for my stuff on discord so it's not like I'm getting nothing when I post a bot. I'll continue posting my stuff to the forum as long as it exists because it's nice to have an archive where you can see how someone has progressed as a builder over time, but as long as I'm getting feedback in some form or another I don't mind too badly if it's on discord or the forum.

Thanks though both of you. I'm pretty happy with the panelwork on this one. You can blame the fact it's a sequel to an old bot for it being yet another black and blue flipper  ;)

New lad. Had this idea bouncing around in my head for a bit now. Wanted to do a kinda bucket scoop style flipper, but try to make it a wee bit less of a brick sh**house than they usually are. 2 of the new right angle TWMR2 drives, which are equivalent to NPC fasts now. Not crazy speedy by any means but standard drive for a bot by me. 2 medium VDMA R/Ps which is fairly standard for a rear hinge too, though it has a fair bit of weight on the bursts so I doubt it'll be crazy powerful.

All in all I think it came out pretty well, though are some small rough edges in places.

I also did some fairly major updates to Cicada since my last post in here, but didn't think they warranted a post of their own. New disc setup with 3 of the new small curved teeth, a 72v etek now for the weapon motor, and a bunch of cleanup and optimisation to get this all in weight and looking good
