I4U News reports that Megbots wants to make the giant robot tournament a reality, and the help of fans is once again needed. Megabots launched a new crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter with the goal to raise $950,000. Check out their video.

Watch the video here.

After watching that retarded robot “fight” a few weeks ago, I hope their fundraising fails.

They need to remove the people from inside the robots, then have the robots blow the hell out of each other.

I can't believe nobody liked watching a 2 hour show to watch a 2 second robot fight where one robot fell over. Why do you guys all hate robots? /s

Meh was a cool idea but poorly executed. Like other said too slow and scripted.
Unfortunately, not being able to accidentally bisect, maim, or otherwise splatter the opposing pilot is kind of an impediment to this.

Swinging around a literal ton of metal and bashing it against another literal ton of metal is a pretty reasonable recipe for disaster and as metal as it sounds, I don't think anyone involved actually wants to have something hit them the wrong way and wind up relocating their innards to the outside.

If they removed the WWE voice announcer it would be 10x better.
