Jackson Wallop was a box-shaped robot and the Series 7 sequel to Attila the Drum. Its name was a play on the surrealist artist Jackson Pollock, and its body was splatter-painted to match the artist's signature style. It featured a very large spin-painted disc tipped with heavy flails. The spinner was 1.2m in diameter, the maximum size allowed. The flails were very robust and powerful, managing to knock the hefty Killerkat onto its side, and were not bent or fractured by the repeated beatings they took. However, the robot itself suffered from many problems as the wheels were exposed on either side of the machine, it was vulnerable if the weapon stopped spinning, and couldn't self-right. The robot somewhat resembled Series 2 competitor Caliban in both shape and weapon.
Robot History Edit
Jackson Wallop's first battle was against Killerkat and Gyrobot. Terrorhurtz was meant to fight but had pulled out beforehand leaving the other three to fight alone. Immediately all three robots got their weapons up to speed and Jackson Wallop hit Killerkat stopping its blade. Jackson Wallop spun away and got its weapon back up to speed before smashing into Killerkat again. It then hit it again and bounced off Killerkat hitting Gyrobot. Killerkat was moving very sluggishly and Gyrobot and Jackson Wallop went about causing a small amount of damage to Killerkat around its wheels. Jackson Wallop then rushed into Killerkat and its deadly blade toppled Killerkat. With Killerkat immobilised Jackson Wallop went through to the second round, where it met Big Nipper.
Here it encountered a large problem as Big Nipper was too low for its blade to do any damage. Jackson Wallop rammed Big Nipper, but was pushed backwards and hit the arena wall, deflecting off it. Jackson Wallop then went and hit the pit release taking the front of the tyre off with its blade. Big Nipper then shoved and pinned Jackson Wallop onto an angle grinder. Big Nipper then clamped onto Jackson Wallop, but couldn't push it. However one of Big Nipper's claws had become stuck on Jackson Wallop's tyres and as it reversed one of those tyres came off. Jackson Wallop was immobilised and the House Robots came in and damaged it some more. Jackson Wallop was then shoved down the pit by Dead Metal.
