If you've ever seen the recent series of Robot Wars you will know exactly why I've spelt "flipper" the way I have done in the opening shot! ;)

The North Star is still what comes to mind first when I think of the word "Polaris". I guess that's a sure fire way of making it clear I've never set foot on the British Isles :D

I read "flippah" in the stereotypical Bostonian/New Englander accent in my mind XD I'm about 100% certain that's NOT what you mean but it reads exactly that way!

Damn! Their robot can tilt Russells car!? I'm impressed :-D
And yay Jason was in this!!! It's been soooo long!

It's the first time Jason has appeared since the end of the fourth book collection. I don't know how long it'll be before he appears again, but it is nice to acknowledge their former teammate :)

At least he's not killed off; unlike his rouge Grandpa... 😱 He still gives me the freaks...

It wasn't his grandpa, it was his uncle. Do keep up XD

I don't think he knows that Jason only appeared as a flashback for some reason?

I know he appears in the flashback! XD I ain't blind!

I didn't say that you were! I honestly thought that you thought Jason would be coming back in this strip. It was an honest mistake to make.

I'll definitely be cheering that strong little guy on during your competition. ;)

Little? He weighs nearly 110kg :P

Well he is smaller then their car at least. ;) :D

Jesus! That flipper robot is a lot stronger than it looks if it can lift the Twins car without breaking!

Also, hello self-insert cameo. It’s been awhile since I’ve last seen you. :D

Yeah... I think it's been at least 150 strips since the last creator cameo!

I see a familiar face in the background of the last panel.

May I ask why exactly Polaris can lift *that* much? I wouldn't imagine they'd have robots competing that weigh as much as a car, I figure one that large would be super-unwieldy :D

It's to do with the power in the pneumatics ^^.

I have to say, I'm digging the panels design and outlook like the Robot Wars interview segments. Good idea on making this strip a submitted artwork.

By the way, nice to see your fursona's first revived outlook cameo in the series.
