Shark Attack was a robot that entered Series 3 of Robot Wars. Shark Attack was large box-shaped robot built in the shape of a shark. The shark's head was lowered into a shovel for lifting with sharp hedge-trimmer blades and modified so that the whole body of the robot would jack up to help turn other robots over. This was run off two mid-welder bottles stashed away to protect them from impact. It cost £500 to build, had cased and fire-proofed electronics and was made by the 39th Huddersfield Scouts (later renamed Team Banshee), with the Scout Masters entering the robot. This lead to Philippa Forester jokingly saying that the scouts did all the work whilst the adults got to be on TV.
Robot History Edit
Shark Attack did not last long in the Third Wars where it met previous series semi finalists Behemoth in the first round. Shark Attack didn't move far and Behemoth came in and lifted it onto its side. The House Robots took over and eventually dumped it into the Pit of Oblivion. The House Robots almost instantly came in to destoy Shark Attack, with Matilda knocking it on its back and Shunt axing a large hole in the base.
