MK2 vs Kuratas

We are MegaBots, Inc. We challenged Japan to a giant robot duel, and they accepted… but demanded that the fight include hand-to-hand combat. We say BRING IT ON. We’ve assembled an incredible team of patriots to help us upgrade the Mk.II into the robot America deserves in the world’s first giant robot fight, but we need your support to help pay for those upgrades!

Right now, the existing Mk.II tops out at 2.5 mph and is built for long-range paintball combat. That means it has thin, destructible armor plates and a mesh canopy. The entire robot’s built to be ‘lightweight’ (if you can call 12,000 pounds light), and hand-to-hand fighting is a whole new level of combat.

In order for the Mk.II to survive hand-to-hand combat, we need to

  • Add heavy duty armor plating
  • Add some serious firepower
  • Upgrade our hydraulics to handle the heavier armor and firepower
  • Increase our top speed
  • Upgrade our power unit to keep up with our new hydraulic system and speed

That basic upgrade will cost $500,000. In order to make sure we win the fight, we need to:

  • Test a wide range of weapons and choose the best load-out
  • Keep our balance during hand to hand combat and not fall over
  • Not injure ourselves in the cockpit during combat
  • Fight with an incredibly sweet paint job. While not strictly required, this is a matter of national pride.

All told, a fully upgraded Mk.II will cost $1,500,000.

Team USA needs your help now, in order to win this fight. Pledge today to make sure your team takes home the trophy!
