Oblark was a robot that was entered by the Oxfordshire Fire Service in the Forces Special of the first series of Robot Wars Extreme. It reached the second round of the special, before losing to Anvil after becoming immobilised.
The team included Rob Heasman from Jurassic Park and Stan Launchbury from Team Mousetrap. Launchbury was actually planning to enter his own Mousetrap 2 machine to the Forces Special to represent the Fire Service, but it was too damaged to fight after it sustained severe damage in its Series 5 battle against S3.
Robot History Edit
Oblark fought Mega-Hurts and Rhino, and was nudged by Rhino at the start. Mega Hurts and Rhino became stuck, so Oblark tried lifting both opponents, before axing Mega-Hurts. By the time its two opponents were separate, Oblark tried reversing into Mega-Hurts, but Rhino ploughed into Oblark's side and pushed it. Oblark missed with its next blow, and its flipper appeared jammed open, but Rhino was no longer mobile, and Oblark axed it. The House Robots finished off Rhino, confirming Oblark's passage into Round Two, where it met Anvil of the RAF.
Oblark seemed slower at the start, and it was axed by Shunt early on. The House Robot tipped Oblark over with his scoop, before Oblark landed on its front, flipping itself too far, attempting to self-right. Shunt pushed Oblark, allowing it to land right-side-up. The Fire Brigade robot was then pushed into the wall by Anvil, and its axe was dangling over the wall, but it was freed by Refbot. Oblark was pinned against the wall a second time, and freed, but its flipper broke off. Oblark was no longer able to move, and was flung by the Floor Flipper, before Sir Killalot placed the defeated robot over the flames, and then into the pit.
