More external links. Nothing spectacular for notability.[edit]

  • A page showing Blendo as champion in 1995 competition. [1]
  • The bracket from the 1995 competition. [2]
  • When I search google for "combat robot hall of fame," I get this page. [3]

It seems like everywhere I turn I keep coming back to members.toast.net. I would like to find more reliable third-party sources...

Also... I don't see Adam Savage anywhere on any of these pages... maybe I missed him. Maybe he didn't work on Blendo.-- Ben 04:10, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

See http://www.adamsavage.com/design.html for a reference to the work Adam Savage did on Blendo.

Thanks for that. -- Ben 17:34, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

I recently saw an interview where the creators talk about the competition [4]. Evidently, nothing was ever ejected from the arena by blendo. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.221.217.144 (talk) 18:30, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Videos of the battles are pretty common online, and they only discuss the event where a piece of shrapnel hit the wall in the second time around.74.131.90.203 (talk) 06:26, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Important Developmental Step in Combat Robotics[edit]

Blendo is a supremely notable combat robot. It was the first successful 'full-body' or 'shell' spinning weapon implementation. Blendo proved the utility of the stored kinetic energy weapon that has come to dominate the sport. It also promoted the development of more effective arena containment to protect audiences from flying debris. 167.131.0.153 16:08, 5 February 2007 (UTC)


Yay! Adam and Jamie from Mythbusters made it, but it was so destructive it was deemed "un-beatable", and alas, it was banned from the compitition —Preceding unsigned comment added by Not politically correct (talkcontribs) 23:41, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

I would like to edit the Blendo page. In the content it says, "After two fights (against robots Namreko and Doolittle) it was deemed too hazardous to compete by the event supervisors and the insurance company after throwing pieces of its opponents over the arena walls." This is incorrect. In 1995, Blendo faced Namreko 2000 in the first round, and DoMore in the second round. DoLittle was a robot that was also built by Scott LaValley, but for the 1994 Robot Wars event. My point is also supported by the bracket listing for the 1995 Robot Wars from the [5] website.

Root Wars links…[edit]

The term “Robot Wars” in the article links to a page for the British TV series, which is not where Blendo appeared or competed (and seems to post-date Blendo’s creation anyway); furthermore, the disambiguation page for “Robot Wars” doesn’t offer an obvious (to me at least) destination for a link to go to for the iteration of combat robot fighting in which Blendo did appear (don’t know what that would be).
