"If this crowdfunding campaign is successfully funded, we will:
Host the World's First Giant Fighting Robot Tournament in the San Francisco Bay Area in Q4 2018, where 4 teams will compete for the international title. This event will be live, unscripted, and professionally livestreamed. We will confirm a final date with our fans 6 months in advance. There is a possibility this date will be pushed back if teams aren't ready, or if arenas aren't available, but we will communicate with our fans every step of the way. We are no longer under any NDAs like we were during the Giant Robot Duel, and are free to communicate about our plans openly.
Make our MK2-class Iron Glory robot open source, so anyone in the world can build their own mech. It should be possible to build all of the components of a MK2-class robot in a garage, so long as you assemble it outside...
Produce MegaBots Season 2, where we show you our own R&D AND the progress of teams around the world as they prepare their mechs for the tournament.
Host a series of MegaBots LIVE! events at our headquarters, where you get to be up close and personal with the robots and watch us test new technology/rules/weapons/etc live.

"The time has finally come. After 2 long years of designing, building, and testing giant robots, we are going up against Suidobashi Heavy Industry, and you can watch the showdown NEXT WEEK — on Tuesday, October 17th, at 7:00PM Pacific Time. We will be streaming the Giant Robot Duel on our newly-started Twitch channel! You'll be able to see it live here: go.twitch.tv We'll post the Duel video to YouTube and Facebook immediately after.
The schedule for the Duel stream is as follows:
7:00PM — Suidobashi and MegaBots backstory videos to get everyone up to speed
7:30PM — THE GIANT ROBOT DUEL!
8:00PM — Live Q&A with the MegaBots team
We can't show you the full version of what Suidobashi brought to the Duel just yet, but... suffice it to say, it was pretty epic. They gained a few tons, and a whole bunch of horsepower, over the past two years.
In case you missed it, here's the 12-ton, 16-foot-tall, 430-horsepower robot that we're bringing to the Duel BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP! "
