Barry was Team Power's entry in the First Wars. Due to the limited budget available, it was decided to concentrate all effort, cash and weight allowance into motive force and have the minimal amount of weapons. Barry therefore comprised basically of two batteries, two speed controllers, two gear boxes and two pneumatic tyres. It was armed with a spring suspended, bulldozer inspired plough and, at nearly 117 kg, it was easily the heaviest competitor robot in any of the main series, barring walking machines. However, this didn't save it after getting stuck in the Gauntlet, first on the grille, then on the ramp.
When Barry reached the set, it took a huge chunk out of the doors on several occasions, requiring a carpenter to mend. It was learnt that radio frequency was causing the problems, but when a crew member attempted to mend the problem, Barry activated and bowled him over, causing him to slice open his arm on the scoop blade of Barry. Fortunately, he was not badly hurt.
Robot History Edit
Barry came off the turn-table at the start of Gauntlet and began to drive forward trying to get around the corner towards the house robots. The house robots Sergeant Bash and Dead Metal came out to meet it and blocked its path, pushing it onto the lighting grill. Barry was stuck and unable to move. The house robots then came in to attack, Matilda used her chain-saw and some very impressive sparks flew, resulting in very little damage, but Barry was still stuck.
