Doomba & Friends

A CAD rendering of what the bots were going to look like.

Doomba and Friends (sometimes referred to just by Doomba) was a multibot that applied for the 2018 season of Battlebots. It was to be operated by Team Bots FC, a well-known team famous for their robots Mega Melvin and Blue. The team was to be accompanied by Adrian Bunny Sauriol, a former member of the team behind Wrecks. The robot was rejected for reasons currently unknown.

Team Bots FC was finally accepted into the 2019 season of Battlebots with an improved version of the two aforementioned robots called Shatter!

Design

The robot itself was a four wheeled, 220-pound full-body spinner coated with reflective pink vinyl. It was very short, as stated by the team it is less than 4" tall. It was accompanied by two 15-pound minibots (Doomba's "friends") which had no weaponry. The shell itself weighed 100lbs, nearly half the weight of the robot itself, and was driven by twelve brushless motors (four on the drivetrain, eight on the weapon) with a value around 6000$ USD.
