Maverick was the original Robot Wars entrant of The Mavericks, competing in Series 4. It featured a lifting arm powered by a sodastream bottle and a truck actuator, and had a plastic shell painted green with a savage face on the front. However, in its first battle against Suicidal Tendencies and Killertron, it was flipped over and left unable to self-right. It also finished in the Top 10 in the Sumo Basho.
After Series 4, The Mavericks replaced Maverick with the very different but much more successful Rick.
Robot History Edit
Maverick started its first fight by attacking Killertron, but was unable to put its lifter into effect. Suicidal Tendencies then lifted up and pushed Maverick into Matilda's Corner Patrol Zone, but it managed to escape. Killertron axed Maverick as Suicidal Tendencies pushed both robots around. Suicidal Tendencies then lifted up Maverick with its forks, eventually flipping Maverick upside-down and out. Maverick was then axed several times by Shunt and thrown by the Floor Flipper which knocked it back onto its wheels. Maverick was able to drive away, but it was already eliminated.
Maverick also fought in the Sumo Basho championship, and lasted 9.07 seconds, placing 10th overall.
