Paradox the Ultimate Lego Battlebot

This is a gargantuan in the robotics area. it weighs at least 4lbs. Can be controlled using my lego remote controlled or by your bluetooth laptop using the software that Anders Sorburg created.
Paradox has:
3 lego mindstorms motors
1 nxt
6 aa rechargeable batteries

The stack of Books Paradox Pushed weighs 40 pounds.
The hammer can total chain armor. the only armor (lego that stands a chance is probably plate armor which Paradox has). Paradox’s chain armor protects the NXT and his gear train.

He may look pretty slow but he is pretty fast for a robot that weighs 4lb.

Hope you guys like it!
