The first episode of the MegaBots online video series premiered.

The MegaBots team has released the first episode of their online video series documenting the way to the giant robot duel. Megabots have spent the last year working on preparations for the Giant Robot Duel - they destroyed, fixed, redesigned, and tested all of their giant combat robots for their first season.

In the first episode the MegaBots explore how to make giant robot duels safe for the robot pilots. Surprisingly they don't want to die in the Giant Robot Duel.

A crash test dummy named Randy takes the hits inside the cockpit of the $200,000, 6-ton, 15-foot tall giant robot. He gets hit by paint ball cannon fire, a wrecking ball, and the worst case scenario for the pilots: falling over.

Watch the first MegaBots episode below.

There will be a new Megabots episode on YouTube and Facebook channels every two weeks.

The MegaBots founders Gui Cavalcanti, Matt Oehrlein, and Brinkley Warrenare living their dream of building giant robots for Sci-fi inspired giant robot fights. MegaBots has raised funds from Kickstarter and also got venture capital investment. The goal is to build a league for giant robots to fight. The first battle will be between Team USA and Team Japan. The fight between MegaBots's Mark II giant robot against the Suidobashi Heavy Industries robot Kuratas has no schedule yet. Also unknown is the location for the epic robot battle.
