Some of the competitors are going to be:
Yokozuna Great (also known as: Yokozuna Bot) with Dr. GIY
Dainamaizar with the Sugiura family
Metallic Fighter with Morinaga Eiichiro
Rooks Pawn with Matt and Jen Bauer from the US will not be going because of some stuff that came up…
On March 2nd all the entries had to be in. So on the 3rd there was a total of 186 robot signed up. Out of those there will probably only be 150 competing.
Robots Dreams is calling the it: “The Most Exciting Robot Event Ever!”.
