Justin Chou's washers, nuts, bolts, wire, and hot glue model of Towering Inferno

This was waiting for me on my pit table at BattleBots 4.0 when I came in one morning--what a pleasant surprise!

Jon Revelle sent me this cool model of Missing Link as it appeared in season 1.0 against Ziggo

Since it's missing 1 fishing sinker wheel, it's even accurate to Missing Link's TV performance!

Marc made a LEGO model of Missing Link, complete with working motorized saw!

Closeup of the weapon

William Griner made a sweet LEGO model of Towering Inferno--it looks so sinister!

And William made a big K'Nex version of Towering Inferno--notice the 3-in-1 oil behind! :]

Joeri de Dreu from the Netherlands made this Mini Inferno LEGO model

This Mini Inferno's better than the real one--the wheels poke through the top so it can run upside down!

Joeri also made a Slugger LEGO model--cool wheels!

I'd love to see this LEGO Slugger in action

Andrew Hewitt made a Towering Inferno model from K'Nex--cool!

Jon Revelle made a paper model kit to make your own mini Mini Inferno--he advises using heavy paper

Jon also did a Slugger paper kit--here is the body

And here is the arm template--print these out, cut them up, and stick them together!

Tyler Davis made a LEGO scene depicting Dr. Inferno Jr. fighting Backlash--guess which bot won?

Tyler also made a funky Towering Inferno model--I love the use of the pickaxe pieces!

George Hazard made many LEGO BattleBots, including Dr. Inferno Jr.

Note the recycled Double Agent body panel!

Four-wheel-drive, just like the real Dr. Inferno Jr.

George Hazard's LEGO BattleBots fight in this detailed BattleBox, which seems to use some K'Nex parts too.

George Hazard also whipped up a 3D model of Dr. Inferno Jr.

George Hazard also staged a complete fight between Dr. Inferno Jr. & Alpha Raptor, which I combined into an animated GIF.

My pals Jason & Matthew Vasquez, geniuses behind Splatter, made a complete set of BattleBots season 2 bot LEGO models! Click on the pic above to watch the build video.

Another LEGO mini model of The Disk O' Inferno, by super fan Daniel.

Our friends at Bot Bash Party made a party bot inspired by Dr. Inferno Jr.!

Robin Ward made LEGO/Beyblades models of Towering Inferno fighting Nightmare!

Ben Ryherd, engineer extraordinaire, made astonishingly detailed 3D printed models of many BattleBots, including The Disk O' Inferno

Ben Ryherd's model was made from my original CAD models & is posable at the joints!

Ben Ryherd also made a detailed Towering Inferno model. His impressive photography skills make the models look almost like full-size bots

Ben Ryherd's model even included screws, & he used separate printed parts to recreate my spray-painted fender flame art in fine detail!

Ben Ryherd has a really neat time lapse video showing assembly of the 3D printed Towering Inferno


Russ Greene, who made Towering Inferno's fenders [so I guess he's not really a fan...], is a great sketcher & cartoonist too

Jon Revelle's Dr. Inferno Jr. cartoon--note the Raptor robot in the trash! :]

Jon again--this Towering Inferno prototype sketch even has all the right logos and such!

Jon's 2nd Dr. Inferno Jr. cartoon--this time Ziggo seems to have fallen to the Dr.!

Jon's at it again, with a "to do" list for Dr. Inferno Jr.

Hmm, Slugger seems to be making a popularity comeback--here's Jon's drawing of the sequel

Jon's drawing of Dr. Inferno Jr. in full patriotic garb

BattleBotsBoy (Richard Riley) made a marker drawing of Dr. Inferno Jr. with extra-fast flaming gear artwork

BattleBotsBoy (Richard Riley) also made a marker drawing of Towering Inferno, again with zippy flaming gear art

MasterMarik of YouTube made a flyer advertising a new RC Dr. Inferno Jr. toy!

Fellow competitor Lushan is a talented artist who published "The Girls of BattleBots", an anime series of female personifications of ABC Season 2 competitors, including The Disk O' Inferno. Love the suit!

MasterMarik of YouTube made another flyer advertising a new RC Towering Inferno toy. Collect the whole set!

EPHGraphix made a wonderful montage of me & The Disk O' Inferno. Hot!

George Hazard designed a mockup of a Hexbug toy version of Dr. Inferno Jr. That would be nice!

Richard Riley rounded out the marker series of the old Infernolab BattleBots & hand-delivered it to me at BattleBots 2019. Thanks!

Kelly Condon drew this portrait of Dr. Inferno Jr. in 2001, when she was only 4 years old! Also pictured are New Cruelty & Toe Crusher.

Gareth Jones drew this minimalist portrait of Dr. Inferno Jr. Simplicity captures his essence!

Gareth Jones also made a simplified portrait of Towering Inferno as part of his series of lots of BattleBots portraits. I'm flattered!

Alex Valentine made slick drawings of many BattleBots, including Dr. Inferno Jr!

Oliver Stapley drew a BattleBot for each day of the month of Inktober 2020. I was flattered that he included Towering Inferno

PSSSTRedCargoPants100AAAsChihuahua sent me this stylized portrait gallery of the more photogenic Infernolab bots--thanks!

Robin Ward made a portrait of me in Chibi style--my head is huge

Robin cutified most of the Infernolab bots in Chibi style

Robin put Infernolab elements into this wicked Inferno Dragonis dragon for her BattleBots Draconica series

Robin transformed Dr. Inferno Jr. into a dragon for the same series

Robin merged Dr. Inferno Jr. with Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7: Dr. Sephiroth Jr.

Robin's meme referring to the BattleBots Season 2.0 lightweight rumble

Robin put together an anime-style series & story of a showdown between The Infernolab & our pals at C2 Robotics

The series includes this actin portrait of Christian Carlberg & me

The series has a character named Dante Ryuzaki. The likeness is uncanny!

In this epic face-off of vintage Coolrobots & Infernolab bots, I appreciate the attention to detail that my red cargo pants were represented accurately

Robin's series is capped off by the Infernolab & Coolrobots logos rendered in Final Fantasy style

PingerY2K drew Dr. Inferno Jr. in Gijinka style

PingerY2K also made a Gijinka style portrait of The Disk O' Inferno

PingerY2K also made a portrait of me--I only wish I looked half as cool as this in real life

Vinny made some fan art of The Disk O' Inferno

Vinny's art next to the tail

Coleslaw & the Barangoat have been creating famous fighting robots in the video game Robot Arena 2. They made an entertaining version of Dr. Inferno Jr.

The Disk O' Inferno & Towering Inferno appeared on Good Mythical Morning's search for robots appropriate for a tabletop fight. Our bots were a little too big for the to use. Aaaand, I'm really not sure what this show is all about, but it's got a huge set of followers & views, so I'm clearly not trendy (surprise).

Robin Ward made a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate level based on Dr. Inferno Jr. Fun!
