Series 10 Final

Hello, I am VulcansHowl, but feel free to call me Vulcan for short. I've been an avid Robot Wars fan since I was eight, and first recall coming across the show through receiving a Gold Shunt pullback from a local Toys "R" Us store. Shortly afterwards, I got hooked after watching repeats of Series 3-4 and the first broadcast of Extreme 1, and haven't looked back since.

Watching repeats of Series 5-7 and both series of Extreme on Challenge between 2015-2016 revitalised my enthusiasm for the show, and I greatly enjoyed Series 8-10 from start to finish. It was a real shame that a Series 11 didn't get commissioned, but even if it doesn't the reboot was fantastic while it lasted.

My username is inspired by the Avro Vulcan bomber, and the 'howling' sound its engines make when they are at approximately 90% power.

Antweight[]

Sasha[]

Sasha, as originally completed in 2017

Sasha is my custom antweight built by Alex 'Shakey' Shakespeare in 2017. It is a two-wheel drive purple and red robot with a compact 3D-printed chassis and a servo-operated flipper as its weapon. The flipper is hinged at the robot's sides to protect the chassis from spinners, and features an angled polycarbonate wedge along with two narrow bars ('ears') on the outer edges to help get underneath opponents and test objects. Sasha is able to self-right by using its flipper, and can also re-right itself by reversing should it be left on its back with the flipper open.


Originally, the robot was named Kiki after the titular character from the Studio Ghibli film Kiki's Delivery Service. In 2020, I decided to rename it after a cat owned by my late aunt, who sadly died during the summer.
