G-Man was a red curved wedge shaped robot with a lifter on the front with an angry face painted on for artwork, somewhat similar in design to the Hassocks Hog 2, only more compact and without "stabilising ears". G-Man was armoured in very thin fibreglass and was very weak in the hands of spinners. It had side arms when it first failed to qualify but they were removed before the qualifiers of Series 7.

G-Man first attempted to enter Series 6 [1], but failed to qualify after losing its qualifier battle to Inshredable. G-Man was modified in an attempt to qualify for Series 7, but failed to qualify again. It is believed that battery power failure is a factor in its failure to qualify for Series 7.

Outside Robot Wars

After Robot Wars ended, the robot was sold to Team Combat Penguin (The Hazzabigun on YouTube [2]), who has renamed the robot Metanoia, and was being returned to fighting form. In 2014, Joshua Hibbard of Team Psyclone purchased G-Man, renaming it The Procrastinatron, inspired by popular Youtuber and Robot Wars fan NerdCubed. G-Man's chassis and some sheets of HDPE are currently for sale on the FRA.
