Skin is kinda blegh and your weapons aren't going to hit much, but other than that it isn't a bad design. Reminds me of Caliban.

Here's my second ever UHW:
(Image removed from quote.)
And before you ask, no I can't have it battle Rusty 2.0, since I forgot to export him and deleted him without knowing it.
You'll be seeing the likes of the Metallicus robots in BB9, in each weight category. ;)

what exactly is that?

Looks like a horizontal disc spinner with a crapload of armor.  Looks awesome, but it would probably be outweaponed by most other UHWs.  Not destroyed, though.  That thing would almost certainly take more than 3 minutes to destroy.

Komodo Dragon looks similarly awesome, but that pointless pile of hammers in the back makes me cringe.  It just screams, "I couldn't build up to the weight limit so I'll just throw on random heavy junk until I get there."  They would be much better in the front.

To lack feeling is to be dead, but to act on every feeling is to be a child.

Since BB9 is starting up in 10 days, I figured I may as well show off my entries.
Everyone, please welcome, the Metallicus Family! :gawe:
First up is Mini Metallicus, the LW entrant to BB9 and one of my 2 entries to the Minor Inconveniences tournament.

Up next is the original Metallicus machine, which we've seen before:

And the original:

Up next is the berserker of the family, Mega Metallicus:

And finally, the big daddy of them all, I proudly present to you, the big, the bad, the down-right brutal...
GIGA METALLICUS!

I have high hopes for these machines, what do you guys think? :smile:

Yeah, well, they were mainly built to be combat effective, and then having them be IRL enough to be acceptable. :redface:
Oh and also, here's some more bots I didn't post:


(Experimental Full-Body-Flipper.)

Spikopath, my other Minor Inconveniences Tournament entry.
And lastly, an upgraded Autistic Pride:

They all look ok except the mw metallicus because how a disk that thick goes through the chassis like that. I mean I know decals are the best you can do about it, but having some kind of armor or extender around the weapon instead would look soooo much better.
(Edit: about the metallicus post)

Hmm, I think I'll do that for the next revision.

I dont like the hw metallicus at all. Its like you made a standard bot and added extender work to try to  look irl-ish. Put the eteks in the chassis if you want to use them.

Slapper looks pretty cool, and replace your S3 wheels with technos on Autistic Pride.

Lol, thats EXACTLY what I intended to do. :gawe:
I agree it looks ugly, but I personally like it. Nonetheless, I'll make a new version of it tomorrow, that's more IRL-ish. ;)
and replace your S3 wheels with technos on Autistic Pride. 
The reason I used S3 wheels is because Autistic Pride's drive system made him too fast, as you could see in Centipital force.
But the main reason why is because S3 wheels are more durable, lighter, and the larger diameter helps Autistic Pride when he's inverted.
Slapper looks pretty cool 
I'm glad to hear! :smile:
The name is somewhat of an innuendo.
Think about it... Slapper... :laughing
Also, how about Spikopath?
Is she ok?

This. If you want combat efficiency, build standard. IRL is almost more of an art form.

well that is pretty M.O.E. -e (< this) so i like it and think it is irl
also my whole theory on irl is make something that looks irl and then worry about combat efficiency if it will be in a tourney
also that looks intimidating
and i dont know how much damage giga metallicus can do but im hoping my entry can break off the wheel guards
i honestly think i am going out first round though so good luck

Yea, Nary's actually right about this one. It's not completely unacceptable, but one more extender down the middle would look swell. Remove a couple of those teeth and you'll have it.

Also, the Multi Extenders sticking out looks ugly.

You guys have a point.
I'll modify the weapon system a little.
Edit: Here ya go.

Also, here's a LW equipped with a Killdozer Plow:

Also, I've ran out of ideas for what to build, so if anyone has any suggestions, please leave a reply. :mrgreen:
