Lego Robot Wars -- Have Fun Battling & Smashing
Posted 31 July 2010 - 02:13 AM
Ochayedonald has developed 5 Series of battlebots posted many Lego "Robot Wars" videos on YouTube. They are produced in the spirit of the TV show. Below are typical battle scenes. If you follow this link to YouTube, you can see lots of additional Lego Robot Wars videos along the right margin.
Here is the Lego Robot Wars Serios 4 Preview (note the great variety and imagination of the various creations):

I don't recall any brick getting broken but a few got markings on them.
We've been talking about trying this event again so this thread comes in handy, thanks!

seams to be a lot more hard to find freaks building quarter human size lego mechs *lol*
But if i make a smaller "killing machine" i would take the hammer design and take some realy heave lead/iron from some lego ship part to smash *lol*
whens the next contest?

I would much rather prefer a less destructive approach with more obstacles like the "pits" and that mechanism I saw from the allround car competitions (The ones that when you hit the trailer the driver pops out).
That would be something I would love to participate in! As well as the ACC!!( But as far as I know, it doesn't, unfortunately, exist in the U.S.A... )
Is anybody on the east coast interested in arranging such a competition?
Yeah. I completely agree. I probably would have done this years ago, had I had enough parts, but there is no chance I would put one of my Legos against LEGOMASTERFREAKS' creations!

"Lego BattleBot Building Rules and Regulations"
"Here is a simple list of all the rules that all Lego BattleBots I create have to follow and abide by. There aren't too many of them, but these rules will help organize my events and give the viewers a sense of why I did certain things with my robots.
- Robots cannot weigh more than 950 grams.
- Fights are 3:00 minutes long.
- Drivers CANNOT interfere with the other robot by changing the channel of their transmitters. Doing so will result in an automatic match loss.
- Each robot can use 1 Lithium Polymer (LiPo) battery pack and 1 Lego extension cord instead of the standard Lego Power Function battery pack. This results in more destruction and a more exciting battles.
- Batteries must be protected and cannot be exposed.
- Batteries cannot exceed 11.1 volts.
- To prevent destruction of wires attached on Power Functions parts, wires may be taped to the motor, but nothing else.
- Other than LiPo batteries and tape on wires, non-Lego parts CANNOT be used.
- A robot cannot be declared immobile until a 10 second countdown is conducted. If the robot cannot show controlled motion after the 10 seconds, the robot is immobile.
- A robot is immobile if it cannot move in a controlled motion.
- A robot can only pin another robot for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, the other robot must be released.
- If a robot is flipped into a position that prevents it from moving, it is counted out.
- If 2 robots are stuck together and cannot free themselves, the match will be paused and the robots will be unstuck.
- If Lego bricks on the arena floor prevent a robot from moving, a 10 second countdown will be conducted. If the robot cannot show controlled motion after the 10 seconds, the robot is immobile.
- If both robots become immobile at the same time, a judges decision will decide the winner of the match."

Fair point, I wonder how much actually gets broken as a posed to being dismantled by the fight. I bet its rare to actually break the LEGO bricks them selves. scratches and dents are fairly likely I would think.
