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.

Very Spicy
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

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

Think I've sorted it

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.
