Okay, so this is no longer completely analogous to what was going on in the case of 8-Megadork-8. Still roughly analogous, but no longer completely. >_>
As in the case of 8-Megadork-8, Tetsujin’s abdominal cavity (or whatever you’d call that when you’re talking about a robot) concealed a giant weapon…and not much else of all of the many different structures and parts logic would require it to contain, by the way. But that’s where similarities end, for the weapon in question is not some giant ray-gun…but instead of that, an old-fashioned cannon* firing, via spring-operation, a giant boxing glove with blades attached. ._.
Quirky. But then, I guess the twins have been displaying something of a quirky sense of fashion all along. Apparently, that extends to weaponry choices for their giant mecha. Commendable in terms of consistency, perhaps…but probably only in those terms.
Although you can’t fault the weapon for its effectiveness – which appears to be higher than the effectiveness displayed by 8-Megadork-8’s otherwise far more impressive weapon. The amount of damage it deals to its target is not nearly as high as the amount of damage which that gun dealt to poor (ex-)planet(oid) Pluto…but the glove-gun dealt that damage to its actual target, not some innocent planetoid just passing by in the (quite considerable distance).
So this is definitely a point for the twins, and both 8-Megadork-8 as well as Mopey seem to acknowledge that with their facial expressions…
More on Monday.
* Normally I would have said bronze cannon, but it looks too golden for that, in harmony with the rest of the robot. Gilded bronze, perhaps? Gold is not as unsuitable a material for a cannon as Toblerone chocolate, but it comes close…
