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.
Well, LET'S GET DANGEROUS!!
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, YOU ARE AWESOME!
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!)

1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask and goggles)

4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock
