Jasper is a heavyweight robot built by Team TomCo of England, which competed in the fourth season of the BattleBots reboot on Discovery and Science. It is a green, white, purple, and red, four-wheel drive robot armed with a hammer. The hammer itself is based on a space laser, is filled with ball-bearings and is designed to act like a dead blow hammer. It can also be swapped out for a lifting arm with the same design. While it looks solid, most of the chassis is actually made of plastic and the weapon is really slow, resulting in its losing record.
The overall design and color scheme of the machine makes it look like something from Buzz Lightyear, the Space Ranger toy from the Toy Story franchise.
Team TomCo also competed in Series 10 of Robot Wars with Bucky the Robot which had no success, as well as King of Bots with Griffin which had little success, a beetleweight drum called Flick which competed in Bugglebots 2018 that reached the heat semi-finals before getting eviscerated, and even built another beetleweight chainsaw to compete in a South Korean competition.
Discovery Season 4
Jasper's fight ever fight was an untelevised rumble against fellow newcomer Uppercut, and fully remodeled veteran, Tantrum. Very little is known, apart from Tantrum getting under the front of Jasper and using its puncher to do some damage, being slammed into a corner, and presumably left there. In the end, Tantrum won by KO.
Jasper's first televised fight was against Johnathan Shultz and HUGE. In response, Jasper went with their lifting arm attachment in hopes of being able to grab HUGE by the openings in the wheels to maybe push it around and extra armor as well. When the match began, this seemed to somewhat work as HUGE was getting caught up in Jasper's weapon, but Jasper soon took a hit that flipped it over and knocked off both of its armor panels. Jasper self-righted and was quickly tossed over again. Jasper continued to right itself and resume the fight until it stopped moving up against the arena barrier. Jasper tried in vain to get going using its weapon, but it was counted out, giving HUGE the win by KO.
