I was thinking about building one for a long time and finally started the design, bought the necessary components and put it together. I'm quite happy with the result so far. However, this bot has never fought so i don't know exactly how well it will perform in an actual game. The 3D-printed blade is great and the aluminum one is even better but I'm not sure how well the 3D-printed armor will hold up. I think this bot might be best suitable for games where only fully 3D-printed bots are allowed.
The total weight of the bot comes in at around 144 grams and it fits within a 4x4 inch (101x101x101 mm) box, not flat but this isn't a requirement.

The reason I gave the bot the name "Bulldog" is because Bulldog ants or one of deadliest ant species in the world ;-) https://lakenormanpest.com/top-8-dangerous-ants-time/
