I dont know about you but me growing up my cousins and I always thought robots were the shit. Then along came a show called Robotica. That changed everything for us since then we tried to make robots out of anything we could get our hands on paper plastic tin signs legos lincon logs knexs didnt mater if we could build it we tried it. After many failed attempts few yrs later they brought out a new show called Robot wars and battle bots and our fascination grew even more trying to build untill grama finally got us the cheap ass battle bot toys from walmart that didnt blow up or spark but the fact that it was a r/c car with arms that looked like a robot we were happy as can be. Well we all know few yrs ago the man formally known as Wolverine Hugh Jackman made a movie called Real Steal and I for one was pretty damn excited. Over all it was a pretty good movie Imo but the point was it brought back childhood memories I can pass on to my kids. Now for the real deal hollyfeild after bs-ing on the interweb I ran across a new show on syfy starting next yr called Robot Combat Leauge and apparently from what ive read on it its identical to real steal only they have added a stabilization bar to keep it from stumbling over. Every robot will have there streghths and weeknesses but the dynamics are pretty much the same and controled by techs with various back grounds such as George Lucas MMA daughter Amanda. Its a team of 12 different robots and will be a tournament of course leading to a grand prize. Not sure about any of ya but I will be tuning in come feb to watch.
