Mega Melvin is a Heavyweight robot built by Bots FC from Brooklyn, New York which appeared in the 2017 RoboGames. It is a white, and silver, box-shaped robot armed with very powerful axe driven by two powerful brushless motors. For mobility Mega Melvin had four omni-wheels.
Mega Melvin went into RoboGames as a crowd favorite, mainly due to its impressive technical specifications, powerful weapon which rivaled that of RoboGames Superheavyweight Gold Medalist The Judge, and hype that had built up around the machine on Reddit.
Unfortunately Mega Melvin suffered a very bad draw against a new, and improved Polar Vortex in its first fight, and never really recovered, failing to win a single fight.
Robot History Edit
Orlando Makers Fair 2016Edit
Shortly after construction, an earlier version of Mega Melvin fought at the Orlando Maker Faire 2016, competing in the HW Sportsman Class. There, it fought several battles against opponents such as Old Iron, and Colson Doctor, Toxic BARista, with the event serving as a test session for the robot's drive systems and axe.
In its first match it fought Polar Vortex where it lost the battle after being knocked out, taking huge damage in the battle. It went to the losers bracket and lost to an Megalodon, it started off sluggish but managed to get a few hits. However after a slam, Mega Melvin became immobile, it tried to activate itself by smashing its hammer up and down but it was counted out and lost.
