    Information
    Beast is a heavyweight robot in its sixth incarnation built to resemble the team's really successful featherweight Beauty. Beast is also called the 8645T because the team believe that squinting at the name makes it resemble the word "Beast". The first incarnation of Beast was built in 2001 for Series 5 of Robot Wars where it beat John Findlay's first ever robot T-Bone in round 1 and since then, the teams both became very good friends. Beast has changed a lot since its first appearance but has always had the flipper as its weapon which has been improved time and time again. Beast has done very well in the live events including the Roaming Robots event at RIAT 2005 where it won and also the Roaming Robots 2005 & 2007 Winter Tours where it finished 4th.

    Design looks good, will be interested in the 3D prints, what material is the filament? I'd go with Rollcage personally.

    Update:

    The design is now about 99% done. I've had to ditch the idea to use a hardox pipe as the body, and came up with a more aesthetically

    Great to see a post from you Sean.
    Technically the locking bar should stop the weapon from activating by accident and as

    Hah, seems like what you have there is a steel bar bender! Look forward to seeing new BOB. Shame to think of BOB3 getting "retired" though,
