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)

Okaaaaaaaay, so, bad news:

Something came up, and I'm gonna need to take a break from the tournament.

Everything's ok, it's just that all my interest in this spontaneously shifted to a different project. Might be a little while before it shifts back.

I'll TRY to get some more done, but "episodes" won't be occurring as often.

Oh, and here's some extra pics of the damage done by Circuit Chipper in his fight with Silver Knight:
 

Hard to notice here, but he disloged the axle for the wall saws. That axle is pretty damn thick!

Alright, time to take a look at episode 2's fight card:

Our first fight is essentially between 2 total nobodies. It's time to see which bot sucks less...I guess...
Bigfoot VS Dozer 2
 

Bigfoot:

Dozer 2:

The next fight is an interesting rematch from last tourney. La Machine was so brutally and utterly destroyed by Nonja that I actually STRUGGLED putting him back together. Can he get his revenge here against Nonja, who's currently 0-1 in the competition? (Forgot to mention the outcome of his fight with Zerschlagen. Oops)
Nonja VS La Machine
 

Nonja:
La Machine:

Next up it's a newbie against a veteran, in a battle of the boxes. I'm actually looking forward to this fight, which is essentially any robot combat television producer's worst nightmare.
Ramminator VS Deku:
 

Ramminator:
Deku:
And last but not least, we see if this adorable former-walker can be a SERIOUS competitor, as he takes on the seriously devastating veteran Circuit Chipper, who's only 0-1 because of a scuffle with Sir Killalot himself!
MAIN EVENT:
Silver Knight II VS Circuit Chipper:
 

Silver Knight II:

Circuit Chipper:

Who's gonna win? Feel free to leave a guess, but we're gonna find out soon enough!

(Well, ok, it'll take a day or two to go through the fights and writing the summaries for everyone. You've got some time...)

Alright, time for Episode 1! After much trial and error I finally got down a format for episodes: I list each fight with a description of what every bot involved in it did, and what the end of the fight meant. These respective performances are also copied to each individual robot involved, competitor or house robot. With that said, let's go!

First up, Circuit Chipper VS Snappin' Dragon VS Junko:

Welcome back to Bot Wars! This isn’t an official tournament, just a test run.

(Ok, it’s pretty much a serious tournament, I admit.)
First and foremost, the rules and format should be brought up before going to our first episode:

The tournament format is the same as season 8 of Battlebots, a fight-night format with a main event each episode. My tourney will have 4 fights per episode. The rules to win a match are simple: Beat the ever-loving crap out of your opponent in a K’nex arena until either they’re immobilized, destroyed, out of the arena, or until the 5-to-7 minutes are up. 1v1 fights are 5 minutes, and 1v1v1 fights are 7 minutes. Bots who pin opponents eventually have to let go after 10 seconds.

Hazards in the arena include some wall-saws on the north and south walls of the arena (they don’t do much) The MAIN hazard is the house robots, which I stole from Robot Wars, and tweaked to be more effective as lego combat robots. They are-
 

-SHUNT
This horned beast features bigger horns, an axe that can double as a srimech, a wider lifting plow, reinforced wheel-guards, a lack of a rear plow, and lastly, some giant-ass horns in order to guarantee that if he’s flipped, he lands directly on top of his axe, making it possible to self-right (this wouldn’t work in real life…)
-MATILDA
Looking like a pig with wings, Matilda has her classic tusk configuration and a black body with srimech “wings” to help with self-righting. She also features rusty spinning metal bar that I found on the street. Doesn’t spin fast, but it hits harder than any other vertical spinner I’ve equipped her with.
-SERGEANT BASH
I have NO idea what his design is based off of anymore, but whatever. Back in blue to leave you black and blue, he features a HUGE crushing jaw augmented by a sturdy scoop. He also features an elongated flame-thrower that can double as a sri-mech. ATTEEEEENTION!
-DEAD METAL
Dead Metal returns with his saw system, which is STILL useless. Regardless, he can clamp on to even the deadliest of bots with those solid pincers of his, and with his new self-righting tail, he’s less defenseless than ever!

-SIR KILLALOT
Bigger than ever before, he can’t self-right but doesn’t need to. Armed with stronger arms and his trusty lance-and-claw setup, he’s the king of cruelty in all of Bot Wars. He’s also decked-out l=to look like a spaceship because I was low on parts and ideas at the time.
-MR PSYCHO
The craziest of the house robots, still with the menacing hammer and claws combo. Featuring wheels and a giant plow that’s only red because that’s the only color I could find the parts in. His hammer strikes harder and heavier this time around, so you best watch out.
-GROWLER
The doggy of hell returns (no, not Cerberus.) Finally featuring a set of jaws durable enough to take on anything, this bot is a literal brick on wheels and comes equipped with a srimech.
-CASSIUS CHROME
Once a total joke, this bot was long since been revised in lego form to be better, but now, he’s one of the big three. The big three being Killalot, Psycho, and now, Cassius Chrome, who might actually be the HEAVIEST house robot now. He has punching piston arms that can move up and down, a 4 wheel drive system and hefty plow that may-or-may-not be vulnerable to hammers.

Alright, enough talk, now it's time to actually do some robot fighting. I'll post up "episode" 1 later today, Just gotta do it first.

Here's the fights for episode 1 btw. Leave your predictions on the winners below!
Main Event: Zerschlagen VS Nonja
 

Other Matches:
Snappin' Dragon VS Blue Moose 2.0
 

White Privilege VS Debra

Alright, the fights have been listed and counted.

44 rounds for the fight-night bracket, then a top-16 tournament afterward.

I just need to figure out how to categorize the fights properly. I think I'll do 4 fights per post, with descriptions on each fight. That would lead to 11 fight-night "episodes" and the top 16 would have...4 episodes?

I'll have each post feature a "main event" amongst the 4 fights that episode.

Here's a flipper. 2 medium VDMAs power the weapon, while drive comes from 2 NPC fasts and 2 TWMRs. Probably a bit lacking in battery power as it only has 1 black, 1 battlepack and 3 ants. Fairly happy with how it came out looks wise though

I'm envious of the skill required to build something like this.

Row 5:Gory Glory, Ramminator, Silver Knight II, Debra
Row 6: King Kill-shot, Deku, Dozer 2, and lastly, Death Jester.

What fights would you guys want to have happen? Each bot get's 4 fights with...somebody.

EDIT: Also, deadline for requests is by Friday. Kinda wanna get things moving here.
White Privilege vs All American Redneck

Junko vs Gory Glory vs All American Redneck
Deku vs Gaspy

Thanks!

The winner of that heat was Bot #4, or as I like to call him, Mr.Beating Stick. It was between him and Technofreak in the finals.

One thing worth noting was the major disappointment that was Bot #3, who I'm not calling "Blitz". He somehow unbalances constantly and can't reach full speed without toppling over. He can also be left stranded on his head.

I'm gonna try another mini-tournament, this time a Battlebots fight-night inspired tournament, consisting off all the robots I rebuilt prior to the decision to organize my legos.
