Initial real-life giant robot struggle to occur tonight pitting Japanese robot against American robot
Who will win?
Back when this all first started, the MegaBots co-founders advised us heir hopes for this particular battle and it’s time to Find out if their visions come to fruition:
“We expect this occasion is extremely successful, also paves the way to get a full-scale giant robot combat sports league in the future.”
What’s each group bringing into the battle? But for starters a robot – you can’t have a giant robot battle.
Megabots will soon be bringing a brand-new robot, Eagle Prime, into the battle. Back in 2015, MegaBots was operating together with the Mk. II bot, that has been 6 tonnes and 15 ft tall, a year later, the Mk. III has been shown, which has been a foot taller and weighing 22,000 pounds. Eagle Prime is more or less the last form of this Mk. III. It is the same elevation as the Mk.III and 2,000 pounds heavier. The thing that puts the Eagle Prime apart is it’s powered by an 430 horsepower V8 LS3 Corvette engine.
Suidobashi has maintained their struggle bot under wraps (for the most part) over the last few years. The Japanese business is bringing their Kuratas robot that stands three feet bigger compared to the Eagle Prime (13ft) and weighs only approximately 14,300 pounds.
The battle will probably kick off tonight in around7 PM PT. It can be viewed via MegaBots’ Twitch station .
