    The manual is quite good, too, especially the parts with exiting the mech.

    I think true geek build their own.
    They have been competing in Robo-One competition (now 15th)

    Heh, the chinese just joined this year and they make it as if they own the place. Not to mention the parts they buy to build are all japanese products. They are getting cocky everywhere now without any proof to back any up.

    Found some interesting game image

    http://www.beastsofwar.com/fantasy-flight-games/dust-warfare-medium-allied-assault-mech/

    These are interesting "western" (WWII) designs.

    Many have copied Votoms and if you build a mini mecha you can't get around similar looks.

    Anyway,

    bike ridding robot standard japanese robot kit

    It's always funny to see robots made to use\do purely human things instead of getting wheels attached directly etc. Great videos Very Happy
    I feel that while robots progress slowly, at certain moment the progress will reach that critical point where it will all start rolling very fast...
