Best Robots Not At Championship, 2012 Edition

We haven't had a thread like this one for a few years that I can remember, but considering the expanded size of Championship and the collective gasp when some high-caliber teams have finished their last regional without a banner...

The Rules:
* Check the Championship roster to confirm your picks. (Mind you, the Michigan and MAR invitees may not be on this list yet.)
* Anyone who mentions their own team should be showered in a firestorm of negative Reputation. If you really should be on this list, odds are someone will mention you.

With that said, here are my picks from the events I attended:

343. Metal In Motion had a plenty smooth robot this year, robust and handling the bridges with ease. They knocked us out at Peachtree in the quarters as part of the #8 alliance on their way to the finals, and we returned the favor in the Palmetto finals the following week. It's a hard break to see them finish this season with two silver medals. (Indeed, ever since they won Palmetto in 2010, every field they've played on--Newton that year, Palmetto and North Carolina in 2011, and Peachtree and Palmetto in 2012--they left with silver.)

1771. Our friends from North Gwinnett had the robot to beat in Georgia, leading to a showdown with #1 1311 in the penultimate qualification match. Put those two together, and we thought it was on lock (even before they picked us). Quarterfinals gremlins gave us a shock, and that was supposed to be that for their season--but these guys got into high gear and raised the funds to get to North Carolina. They wound up on the other end of the bracket from 1311 again, netting silver.

Who comes to mind for you?
