Buy your own MegaBot!?
« on: 24 September 2019, 08:35:32 »
Went onto the megabots channel on youtube to see what was new but instead found a goodbye. Out of money with loans to pay they are auctioning off the bigger of the two bots on ebay with a starting bid of $1.00. Bids are up to $50k so far. Wish I could buy the thing lol would be fun to own.

That's a bum. Some say they handled the project poorly, but things start somewhere, and no good to see a start fail.

Crash in burn, Megabot are dead.  Not surprising to hear they may have ran the business poorly.

I think they tournament fight they fought was a joke.  It was a real fight like they do in Battlebots.  it's a shame.

Well, so far their up to 50k for it, that may help them cope with the 2.5 million dollars they used to built it.
