was the season two finale where two teams would each build destructo
cars, and then ram them together head on while simultaneously
smashing away at each other with motorized devices until one or
both of them were just a little pile of lifeless scrap metal.
What do you do for this kind of show? Build giant robot heads?
Well, as it turned out….
Each head is one sheet of 16 gauge 4'X8' sheet steel wrapped around
1/2” X 1/2” square tubing to frame it out. I had to
do a lot of hammering to get the sheet steel round enough to weld
on to the frames. I tried to stay true to the Rock'em Sock'em
Robot theme while only using cuts and bends to form the main structures
of the heads. Plasma cut some flames, add some sheet metal head
bolts, sweat, blood, and burns, and badda bing: robot.
