I'll fix Interceptor later cause I need time, but for now checkout Mad Dawg. If you want me to do the same thing I'm gonna do with Interceptor, I'll do that later.

Dude, did you use BFE on that? I don't think you can stack all those maces cleanly like that.

Is 2 RAD drive even enough for a good LW stock popup ? I don't think so.

Well I did said I was gonna work on Mad Mutt and I did, I also worked on Black Bull. I didn't make a splash really.
I also made another bot called Mutant Snowman. (Mostly like It would be Mantanca 3, I think.)
Well I didn't make a lot of mauled bots with Aerial HK.
My first posted Beetleweight.
And my favorite bot from this post, Tentacle Attack went from a harmless flipper, to a Dangerous Popup.

Tentacle Attack is a weaponed flipper and should stay like that, NOT a popup.

While most of them are top builder's material for sure, I was already disappointed at the lack of robot type variation in Restocked AI. We don't need Starcore AI to be even less varied.

I'm starting to feel Criticized.
Firstly The First Tentacle Attack is real not a good bot but my first rebuild really isn't a good bot, that's why I wanted to switch It from a Weaponed Flipper to a Popup.
Secondly, I just like to make rebuilds.
No offense though.

^I still want to know the answer to this.^  It's fine if you did use BFE, since I see you switched to irons, but if you stacked all those maces without it, that is amazing.


Black Bull is awesome, very neat and clean build, and Tentacle Attack is good too, though it should be a standalone bot and not a rebuild of Tentacle Attack, since the two have very little in common.

While most of them are top builder's material for sure, I was already disappointed at the lack of robot type variation in Restocked AI. We don't need Starcore AI to be even less varied.

I concur that Tentacle Attack was conceived as a Weaponed Flipper and given a choice would be best if rebuilt as a modern Weaponed Flipper. A much more challenging task to be effective than building it as another Popup. Many did not understand one of the goals of the Starcore packs was showing a wide range of building styles and types. I fully support that by today's standards the Tentacle Attack of 2004 is behind today's building curve and would value updates that maximize current building understandings while keeping to the range of building types.

Alright I'll take your advice Clickbeetle and Starcore. I took the challenge of making Tentacle Attack better (without making it a popup) and It's much better now. Althought the ram plates can get this bot on his head. but it's side protection.
And I made the Popup Tentacle Attack and gave It a new paint job, a new Splash, and a New Name.

Tentacle Attack probably needs a wedge though

I'm not sure If I'll put a wedge on Tentacle Attack or not. But on the Brighter side, two newer bots are created though.
Chaos Control
And 6PAK.

IIRC Psycolone Popup Challenge is 2 Supervolts, 2 HP Z-Teks with Rubbers, 3 DDTs, 8 razors and DSA. It's a pretty good exercise in chassis space management, in my view. If you're not familiar with Snapper Loading.
 
Chaos Control, I think, needs some defense on it, the chassis's probably not going to last too long against some decent hits. 6Pak, I really like the look of, I'm not entirely sure whether it could be powered by a Nifty, though. Might give you some more weight for casters on the bottom.

6Pack looks really hilarious.
I take it that it just flops around the arena and the opponent just gradually auto-dies from trying to attack it, right?

It looks like a sort of angled crawler to me. A bit like Volatile Partisan without wheels.

I'm guessing some degree of protection againts rammers and the like. They're not going to reach the chassis with that amount of caster sticking out the front.
