A World Where Referees Talk to Things Without Ears

PM0P4467.JPG Dum-da-duuuuuuum! I wish I had some fabulously portentious-sounding music to play you, complete with booming Timpani, to announce some mano a mano between a bunch of Robotos and their crazy machines. This is a recent Robot Fight which took place in Osaka between a bunch of machines from the Two-Footed category. They're quite a bunch of Wacky Racers, IMHO.

There were 92 entries for the two categories (Super Regulation Class and Over Regulation Class) and we've got our hands on clips from both the finals. Super Digger took on Guardian - and won - in the SRC, and Dr GIY vs Ivre (which means "drunk" in French, useless fact fans) got up close and personal in the ORC. Check out the crazy referee who looks like he is talking to the 'Bots as they grapple away like a pair of rutting Meccano sets.

Tons of clips, after the boink.

Someone needs to grease these last two up with baby oil and throw them in a paddling pool.
