Here's Jim Smentowski doing a little maintenance on Backlash.
The good doctor is is always a favorite with the fans because of his personality. This version had a nicely built base unit. It features hinged flaps on all sides to prevent lifting.Dr. Inferno Jr. (Inferno lab)
This robot also has an assortment of cutting and drilling weapons. This helps the doctor perform a little elective surgery on it's competition.
Even the doctor needs a little repair from time to time.
This robots weapon is extremely powerful it uses an electric motor to spin this disk a over 2000 RPM's. It has been known to toss its competitors parts clear over the battle box walls. Believe me kids this Cat has clawsZiggo (Team Ziggy)
Ziggo uses this long pole to help in indicating in which direction the drive unit is facing. One of the problems with rotating robots is you cant tell where the drive wheels are while driving it. This makes driving them a challenge to say the least.
Another shot of Ziggo's disk. Notice the vertical claw weapons.
One of the big challenges in building this type of robot everything must fit inside of the disk or drum type weapon.
Ziggo returning from battle. It looks like someone broke off its pointer. Ouch!
