    Information
    Twister is a Dutch heavyweight robot that was originally built by Sjaak Konnig from Booschenhoofd. The first version was built for the Second series of the Dutch Robot Wars where it reached the grand-final after receiving a Wild card on the way losing to Philliper 2 in the Grand-final. Twister was rebuilt again for Robot Wars UK Series 7 where despite causing a lot of damage to Ceros in the qualifiers, lost the first round on a judges decision to Pussycat and Roobarb. After Robot Wars ended, Twister was sold to Niels de Carpenter from Team Hammerhead who entered it into the 2006 UK Championships where it fell in the group stages. Twister is armed with a very powerful spinning triangular weapon that can spin fast and cause the damage of a tornado.
