There is a moment in an Instructables Author life when he (or she) has to honor the only and one Robot. It's my turn, so I decided to make a Robot toy with a manga style robotic battle armor. So I call it the SUPER ROBOT BATTLE MECH, INSTRUCTABLES GO! (If you have seen the "Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce GO!" TV cartoon, you will understand the thing with the name).

Basically, is one of my classic vibrobots designs made of reused plastic caps and oven knobs. Its right arm spins creating the movement, while the left arm has a triple LED raygun. It works with 2 AAA batteries.


My song of choice is "Robot, eres formidable" (Robot, you are formidable) by Capitan Memo. It's the spanish theme song from the classic anime TV show "Festival de los Robots". The verse translation is the following:


Robot, eres formidable
(Robot, you're awesome)
Robot, siempre luchas por amor
(Robot, you always fight for love)
Cruzando por el Universo
(Crossing across the Universe)
Tienes la velocidad de la luz
(You have the speed of the light)

Cuando encuentras el mal siempre cambias tu cuerpo a metal
(When you find the evil, you always change your body to metal)
Tienes armas secretas, Gigante, no te vencerán!
(You have secret weapons, Giant, they will not defeat you!)

Step 1: Stuff!


1 black plastic case (I use one from a damaged lamp)
4 dedodorant caps
2 mouthwash caps
1 big plastic cap (I use one from a liquid detergent)
2 oven knobs
1 toy motor
3 Big red LEDs.
1 Switch
1 AAA 2 batteries holder
4 Alcoholemeter mouthpiece
1 facial cream plastic jar (complete)
1 facial cream plastic top
1 old telephonic socket
red and black wire
screws and bolts
Tin soldering
Various plastic pieces for making the claw and decoration


Dremel Rotary Tool
Wire cutters
Screwdriver kit
Soldering Iron
Super Glue

And don't forget the classic M.C. Langer's building rules (plus one):

1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask and goggles)
3. Beware of drilled and soldered hot surfaces
4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock
6. Enjoy!
7. Listen good Robot music.
