Adam Savage Reunites With Fon Davis' Mouser Mecha-Catbot from Battlebots!

It's a reunion 20 years in the making! During Adam's visit to Fonco, Fon Davis brings out his award-winning Mouser Mecha-Catbot, touching off a walk down Battlebots and Robot Wars lane as Adam and Fon -- then working together at ILM -- reminisce about that era of robot making and competition.

    That not sharing is something that I as a former mentalist creating my own effects, always had discussions about with my "partner in crime" from PA. He says: "don't share, it's too good to share". I always said: "if they know, they can make effects again that may blow our minds. We are jaded anyways!" I won't reveal someone else's method or gimmick, because that is for them to decide. But I was always very open about my effects. I would document them in our secret society books, show prototypes etc. And eventually it paid of, because of that I got hired to consult TV shows, when it involved mentalism and stage hypnosis. And through that I landed by accident in VFX and some SFX makeup (which I weirdly enough am pretty good at, although I can't sculpt and draw to save my life :D)

    Plastics need to be tempered!! (After any kind of heat processing). Get similar issues when laser cutting and coating with solvent paints or solvent cleaners, I think the term is crazing. Bake it in an oven at around 140-160deg freedom and let cool in the oven (slow as possible)

    This is fantastic! One of my big complaints of the newest seasons of bb is that most everyone builds a just-armour-box with wheels and a weapon or a spinner. I feel as though they should have a rule that your armour has to be a certain amount 'crunchy' such that blows really do tear it to shreds for the viewing pleasure.

    CA kickers generally use a fast- evaporating solvent (acetone sometimes) to transport the accelerator agent. Any solvent will quickly and catastrophically degrade polycarbonate. I might have learned this when modifying a piece of equipment for use on the space shuttle in the mid 90s.

Hopefully 2021 season will be as exciting as the current one. I think one highlights of 2020 season was Rusty, the low-end bot. It kept going, which was cool.

    I'm glad to say that BattleBots has always been a part of my life, from the occasional glimpse as a little kid in the early 2000's, all the way to the Hydra Era of the show. I thought it was really touching that the organizers of BattleBots renamed the award for best design after Grant Imahara (may he rest in peace) when they awarded it to the redesigned version of Chomp.

    I'm more of a code guy than a mechanical guy, but I've helped out my students at Vex and First Robotics competitions and I'm happy to say that the same spirit of sharing tools and knowledge - even with your potential rivals - is present at the pits there at the high school level as well.

      At least, what's left of it. From what I heard, it had to retire because it took a hit from a controversial Battlebots hazard called "The Piston", which juts up from the floor. Supposedly, the piston went off under Blendo while it was at full speed, pushing the internals and base into the shell, destroying it from the inside. It's a shame, because I heard that final version of Blendo was really good and competitive, practically back in it's prime.

      Witch Doctor has a theme song as well but it's far less famous.

    that's really cool me and my cousin are planning to building our own bot called barbossa's revenge after one of my favorite disney franchise pirates still working on the design and my brother has offered to do the driving as he has the best dexterity of all of us

    I remember watching the first Battlebots as it first came out on TV! I loved Mouser Mecha-Catbot, Vlad the Impaler and Chinchilla during the battle royal!

    I loves seeing that same sense of comradery that Adam talks about. I call it "Wanting to win, instead of wanting the other guy to lose." You want your thing to be the very best, which means you want the other guy's thing to be as good as it can possibly be-- because it's no fun to win because your opponent's motor broke, or he had the flu that day, or whatever. I really miss the Sy-Fy show "Faceoff" for that. The makeup artists were always helping each other excel. (I theorize that's because if you want to be a successful movie makeup artist, you need a reputation as a team player instead of a diva.)

    if i'd get to build a battle robot i would do a ball, becouse you can't overturn it, so it will be always operational

      @Asher Shunn right right....no, I meant something else, but similar, something like the mechanism that make BB8 rolling

      @Ettore a gyroscope is a spinning wheel that uses torque to stay upright (like a bicycle), but you can turn it to change what "upright" means. Using gravity to turn the whole robot makes sense too.

    oof, battle bots, that's a way back. I remember being a teenager thinking "I could do that" now I've learned enough about a lot of the associated technology that, while I could, I no longer want to. I don't need that kind of frustration in my life. also I'm just perpetually broke.

      @Joseph Davies Now it's is. Back when Battlebots started out it wasn't as bad. Now its sponsor or no bot. sad.

      hell, *_they_* couldn't do it. I lost interest in battlebots when it was clear the tech simply didn't exist yet, this was all just unreliable motors mashing into each other until they stop working, and nobody functioned for more than a few fights.

      Well it's back on TV again so you can at least watch more episodes.

      @Scott Mantooth there's really no need to chip people. I'm holding everything needed to track me in my hand. That's the insidious thing. It doesn't take a revolution in technology to track and manipulate people. You just need to make it convenient and common place. people will buy into it on their own.
