And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern. I intend to be at Robot Fight Night this Saturday; if you’re also there, feel free to submit your entry in person (but from six feet away, please).

Go!

Welp, there go all the “Back in MY day, we didn’t have no stinkin’ bumpers!” arguments!

I think Toler owes some royalties!

That was my first thought too!
EDIT: It’s team 845. And I just realized Billfred has been using the Caption Contest number as the Team Number :sweat_smile:

Hey, do you want to play bumper cars in the practice field? I’ll bring some pizza!

Guy turning around: “Hey, what are those things for?”
Answer: “To prevent damage to our frame.”
Guy: “Nah, that’ll never catch on.”

Introducing 845… Team Hipster! They had pool noodle bumpers before it was cool.

Hey 845, that’s a really cool idea. What if we were to cover them in red or blue fabric? That way we could get rid of the dumb rotating light.

New protocol implemented: all queuers need to be replaced with orange sheets of paper or flashing construction arrow signs.

We’re supposed to survive running into that?

“We still don’t have our mechanism!”
“Bring the ironing board!”

Left orange shirt, facing camera: “I just realized… I have the driveboard in my hands.”
Right, gray shirt: “So…?”
Left: “I can feel its power corrupting me already.”
Right: “I need to get out of here.”

ROBOT!

Guy from 845, “Who cut the cheese!”

And here we can see the wild Proto-bumper Robot. Science has shown the large foam tubes are effective protection in high velocity collision.
