Megabots USA has challenged Suidobashi Heavy Industry to a mech battle https://youtu.be/XVJTGLL2SnI which Suidobashi accepted https://youtu.be/7u8mheM2Hrg

Both teams have a year to make modifications to their mechs and prepare for armed melee combat. The Megabots team had decided to launch a kickstarter to fund modifications to their mech for the upcoming battle. Suidobashi has the more advanced of the two mechs, but with some funding from kickstarter and good ol' Murican elbow grease, I think we have a solid chance to win.

What do you think? Do the Americans have a chance or are the creators of the mech genre untouchable?

I think the American bot has a chance. It may not be as advanced, but it looks like it'll be more of a scrapper than the Japanese bot. It's interesting - the Japanese mech has a lot of high tech controls and a slick exterior, the American bot has a very function over form appearance with an exterior that could have walked off a construction site.

Looks like we already have a thread about this, so I'm closing this one. Please join the existing discussion:
