Robot Pro Wrestling Dekinnoka 10! – Nagare Gold vs. Thunderbolt (Video)
It isn't an accident that Nagare Gold bears a distinct resemblance to Godzilla in robot form. In fact, it even roars like Godzilla. But Thunderbolt, the latest creation of ROBO-ONE humanoid robot designer Yoshihiro Shibata, doesn't get intimidated easily. And, he's got a few tricks up his sleeve - or, more accurately, mounted on the top of his head. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but you would be well advised to watch the video of their Robot Pro Wrestling match below very closely around the 5:50 mark.
Thunderbolt's head mounted rocket launchers were only loaded with party poppers for this competition. It was the "Buddhist" hall after all. But, this coming April for RoboGames 2012 in San Mateo California, they'll be loaded with live rockets for the extreme classification of Mech Warfare, no holds barred!
