Anyway I was not impressed with the new house bot "Mr Psyches". He was too
big and seemed uncontrollable, his hammer just did not seem to do the job.
Maybe it will look better on TV.
Unfortunately did not get to see "Growler" the other new house bot.

Mr Psycho (as he is now called, since they have dropped the name Mr Psyches)
was in action early on, and made 2 attempts to whack a Dutch robot. He
missed both times though, as he seemed too slow and cumbersome. He did
manage to do some damage to the floor where the hammer made contact though,
and this caused considerable delay to the afternoon, whilst the crew rushed
to replace an entire floor section !
Growler, whilst looking impressive, failed to catch my interest. Although it
can move pretty fast for such a big robot, I would have to agree that he was
much too twitchy with his controls. On one battle, he got a chance to use
his crushing jaws, but because of the way he is designed, he found it
difficult to do any real damage.
Overall, not impressed with the two new house robots, but hopefully things
will indeed look better on TV.

I really like Growler, it looks great, and bounds across the arena with
an enthusiasm and lack of control perfectly suited to its doggy looks.
It isn't all that destructive, but then the house robots shouldn't be,
Apparently Mr Psycho's hammer used to be full of concrete, but they took
it out because it was too much. Currently it weighs 20kg, which is only
4x heavier than the Sump Collective Rawhide Hammer of Doom.
lovely -more house robots.
that's just what's needed to stop the better teams putting their new robots
