Team Transmission by FreyFox Team Transmission by FreyFox
Next month's chapter in Transmission will see the characters competing in UK Robot Wars - with their brand new heavyweight Polaris - a sleek 105kg wedge with a front-hinged flipper with enough strength to launch a Ford Transit van. It's design is derived from the real life competitors Push To Exit and Apollo. Polaris get's its name from the star of the same name, as well as the UK's first submarine based nuclear weapons system. The smaller robot on the right is Proxima Centauri, a 13kg lifter/pusher built to compete in the featherweight competition.

The characters' roles in the team are as follows; Russell is the team captain and mechanic, Linda is the electrician and weapons operator, and Reggie is the driver and welder.

Nice robot designs! The featherweight looks like a more deadly version of SMIDSY. X)

Shame the next Robot Wars series will not happen for a long while, though. :(

The featherweight was redesigned a bit to have a ridged scoop and 2 wheel drive, but yeah there is a resemblance :)

The left robot flips, the right robot lifts. Most of the comic will focus on the main heavyweight competition though, so Polaris will get most attention. Proxima Centauri was an afterthought, which could be used in a featherweight sideshow and also for spare parts.

It'll be mostly fictitious competitors based on real ones ^^

When the crew participate in that robot fighting competition, I think I'm gonna be one of the people to yell out: "ROBOTS ACTIVATE!"

oooh I got chills already just thinking about it.

"3... 2... 1... Activate!" in the UK competitions, but both awesome :)

I wouldn't expect Polaris to win the series, but definitely make an impression :)

I've never personally been into robot wars and the like (I think the most I've actually seen relating to the sport is the Simpsons episode that spoofed it-YMMV on how sad that is...), but I'll be rootin' for 'em when this arc gets started. You managed to actually get me to care about a sport/pastime that never struck my fancy last time they competed...was it in 2016, I think? That should say something :D

Man, this does make me think of how much I and a lot of other people miss Jason, though. Know he's off with his own life now but a part of me wishes he could still be part of the team...

Yes, they competed in the first story of 2016 in Raging Robots, a fictitious competition based on Battlebots. Popular as Jason is, I think the team works well as a trio, I have plans to eventually give Jason a new chapter of his own at some point down the line. :)
