"Badgerbot" really is just a lame Foxic knock off - while "Backdoor Smasher" has a design based on real life competitor Sabertooth - except for the invertible wedge at the back, which I got from an American battlebot called DoAll.

Badgerbot-are these guys going to be our antagonistic ones for this arc? They look like a couple of punks...

I'm sure things'll get exciting soon but I have to admit that Robot Wars, not really ranking high on my personal interests (no offense man), can feel like a bit of a "lockout" for people not as interested in it like myself, haha...I guess I'm just waiting to actually see the bots start busting each other up?

Sorry... the last robot shown in this strip looks like a... You know what... and I thought it would be funny to make a Simpson's reference.

I thought it might've been one ^^. But then you're not going to be driving a car indoors, I would hope -
That would be *too* cartoonish :P

I think we can all see now why that bot is called "Backdoor Smasher". ;) :D

Even for a knockoff, the Bagderbot still looks pretty cool.

I’ll be honest. Although I remember the BattleBots show, I never really watched it all that much. I guess I was more into Fear Factor. :P

After Fox of Kings Island's comment about the "Thrust" battle-bot's "obelisk" shape, this truly fits the Past The Rader title and trope reference. And Yakko from Animaniacs would definitely make a "Good night, everybody!" moment for this last panel. ^^

Now that I look at it the little minibot just reminds me of the penis car Peter bought on Family Guy when he was insecure about his manhood because he discovered Chris' junk was bigger than his.

"Don't worry baby, I'll be *gentle*!" XD
