A blast from the robotic past

Remember the heyday of robot combat?  Well, here's a classic - the final of the 2005 Combots Cup series in San Francisco.  Megabyte takes on Biohazard.

I wonder how many auto parts and electronics stores used to make a decent living out of that sport?

Man, I remember back in high school, my sister and I watching raptly as Son of Whyachi tore Biohazard's titanium armor plates off to win the Battlebots heavyweight title. We loved that show.

Sadly, it was way too expensive to produce and suffered from poor (too much) commentary and poor camera angles.
