ALL STOOD SQUARE
Why hello, there. Welcome to Bots! This is the first book about our favourite mechanical town, All Stood Square. Turn the page and meet some of the robots that make this town such a special and unique place.
Join us as we take you on a tour through the town and introduce you to our friends and foeâ€™s, both great and small, quiet and loud, metal and steel. With so much happening, there is never a dull moment at All Stood Square!
BACKSTREETS The back streets of All Stood Square are not exactly the safest place in town to hang out, filled with forgotten and homeless robots. Shags and Pure Evil are no strangers to these dark and daunting ally ways.
SQUEAKSPAD Although one of the smallest homes on the block, this little place is filled with love and warmth. Not to mention it offers one of the nicest cup’s of tea and home made cakes. So if your in town, be sure to visit Squeak. SHAR
HAPPY MOUNTAINS “Hahahaha” is the sound you can hear echoing threw these happy mountains. Whenever the robots are feeling sad, a climb to the top of the mountains is sure to cheer them up. MAC BOTS KREW
Bots Bakery is the freshest place in town. This little Bakery is always buzzing. The delightful smell it leaves wafting though the air, is enough to make any robot weak at the knees. From cupcakes, to short bread, to donuts, the variety is endless.
TRAINYARD A popular spot for the local graffiti crew, the train yard is dark and dangerous by night, but by day itâ€™s the most used form of transport for the bots to get from one place to another.
GHOSTKINGS CASTLE This massive castle is one of the biggest and oldest buildings in the square. Filled with ghost and gouls you never no what will happen next, but itâ€™s always some where to visit and explore.
PRIN CE YOR A M
All hail mayor Prince, the new face of All Stood Square! After taking over from the old Mayor, Oh Dear!, he has done everything he can for the town. Having grown up in All Stood Square, the bots in the town are very trusting of him. He wears a red cape and fox wool to show his superiority from the other bots, so they can easily recognize him in the crowd.
STIT CH Little Stitch is always in a hurry and always making a fuss. Stitch is the Deputy Mayor of All Stood Square. This little round ball of energy is always on the move. Organizing meetings, speeches and keeping the town in an orderly fashion. He is the brains behind every good idea that Prince comes up with. Some say that he should run for the Mayor of the town but he is too loyal to his superior, Prince.
VEND ER Olive oil, sunflower oil, canola oil or grease. Take your pick, Vender has a huge variety of different oils in his vending machine. Being one of the only oil vending machine in town he is always very busy and often struggles to get new stock with the big demand. But be careful, because too much oil can make any bot sick.
SHAGS NE OILED !
Shags is a poor homeless bot. He has had a rough life in the town and never has any money to buy oil. He was tired of always breaking down when running out of oil, so he saved up and bought a winder for the top of his hat. Now, when he runs out of oil, other robots that see him struggling wind him up so he can walk to the nearest store for an oil top up.
SQUEAK Shhh, listen! Squeak, squeak, squeak. It sounds like that robot needs some oil in those joints. Oh no, it’s just Squeak the mouse looking robot making a scuffle. This cute, happy bot can be found making tea and treats for the nearby neighbours in her little cottage. It’s very rare to see this tiny bot without a grin on her face.
BUBB LES Who’s that flapping in the distance, you ask? It’s Bubbles, the bubbly robot. He’s the town chatterbox who’s always up for a chat, even when you can’t understand what he is saying under that tin helmet. When ever he gets tired, he will tuck his ears and head into his body and have a rest. Although, he often gets woken by passing bots that mistake him for a rubbish bin.
PUPPA P FREASH!
Big Puppa P is the local farmer. His company grows every kind of fruit and vegetable imaginable. Workers say not to get on his bad side, as his big fat pumpkin body can get quite scary if your not doing the right thing. Big P likes to roll around the farm but sometimes squashes the fresh produce when he has had too much oil.
BURNY Burny is the local hot shot. His body is a fire place that keeps him warm and is made from the strongest metal. Often if other robotsâ€™ parts get bent or broken he can heat them up so they can be mended back into shape. He has big sheets under his arms that he flaps when the fire needs a kick start, whilst his head acts as a chimney to dispose of all the excess smoke.
HEIGHT: 10.5 ft
BOLTA This shocking robot is always full of energy. Bolta looks after all the electrical work in the town. From short fuses to black-outs, he has it covered. Due to his size, it is easy for him to see what areas of the town are having problems.
DROP LET Drip, drop, drip, drop. Oh no itâ€™s not that leaking Droplet again. This poor bot is leaking all the time. Because his body is filled with water it rusts the inside of his metal and always forms holes. You can see where Droplet has being threw out the day from the trail of water he leaves behind.
OFFICER OINK OO
Another day spent trotting around doing nothing. Instead of catching the notorious town graffiti group or dishing out speeding fines, Officer Oink would rather spend his days annoying the Bakerbots of Bots Bakery. His favorite treats are the jam donuts and fresh cup-cakes produced from the town baker, Cakes. He sometimes uses his authority in the wrong way, demanding free treats for all his â€˜hard workâ€™.
BREAK Break is your local gangster! This cool cat owns the local shoe store and is known for sometimes being a shady character. He is good friends with the Square One Crew and can be seen walking the street with them every now and again, spotting a tag. He is known to start a few fights too, so beware! His skeleton arm packs a strong punch.
STRAW BERRY SO LD!
Going, going, gone! That sums up All Stood Square’s real-estate guru, Strawberry. A good sale is his cup of tea. But when there is a problem in town, he is the first one to flee the scene. Although, all the other bots know exactly where to find him in the end. Strawberry’s a happy bot who often has a lot of work on his hands, but always finds time for a chat. HIGHT: 10ft
PHAN TY There is no job too big or small for this hard working robot. Phanty is the town’s handy man and is always up for a challenge. If he’s not cleaning the graffiti off the walls, you’ll find Phanty fixing broken windows. The other bots all know they can rely on him for a job well done. Be sure to call him on 1800-PHANTY.
CAPTAIN CAGE+ MUDA Captain Cage, the protecter of All Stood Square. This brave little bot will take down any bad intrude he comes across. With his side-kick Muda these two make a tough team. It is said that Captain Cage lost his head in a spell that went wrong and now has to use an old bird cage. But that hasnâ€™t stopped this crime fighting bot.
SLIME Oh no! Itâ€™s the local ball of slush, Slime. Look out - this creature will eat anything in its path. From steel, to concrete, to tasty intruders! A robot once said Slime ate four buses and a train in one day and was still hungry. Slime would never deliberately harm a robot, but you wouldnâ€™t want to get in his way if he was hungry, as he gets very grumpy and may change his eating habits. Gulp! Gulp!
H PLEEH PL
Pleh, the helicopter-like robot, is always on the move. From taking oil to robots that have run out to showing others the way home in the dark with his big hanging flash light.
F-BAT F-Bat is the largest robot of the Bat family. But donâ€™t let his size fool you. This bot can cut swiftly through the air. He can only be seen at night, especially on full moons.
SWIRL S These pink, sticky creatures can be found all over the town. Their long, thin legs can stretch as high as they want and can even be used to communicate with Swirls.
I-S PY This eye-covered bot never misses any of the action. He spends his days flapping around the town recording everything and if anything goes wrong, he shows the footage to Officer Oink.
JUBS Beware! These little guys may look cute, but don’t bother them as their buck teeth boast a mean bite. They have been seen flying around in packs of as many as 100 Jubs.
LEAFLET Leaflet is a very shy robot. He isn’t often seen in the town but you can catch a glimps of him in the Happy Mountains, flapping his leaflets all over the place.
CAKES The owner and longest serving family member of Bots Bakery, Cakes, is always up for some fresh ingredients to mix it up. If youâ€™ve got a sweet tooth, then beware of this little bot, as Cakes is known for cooking up a sugary storm in the kitchen.
PIP ER K BA OTS B
Often known as ‘Pip with the Pipes’, this whinging robot always has something to complain about. But we guess that walking around every day with a yellow sack of cake mix wouldn’t be at the top of the list of fun things to do at All Stood Square. Although he moans and groans a lot, Pip has a funny way of always getting the job at hand done.
FAEL Fael is the friendly bot always there to help and do all he can for the environment. That pretty much sums up this little green-thumbed robot. Skullbot and Fael are in charge of collecting all the berries off the trees that are in season. Fael has to wear a mask when working, because sometimes rotten berries on the floor of the forest may be poisonous if inhaled.
SKULL BOT With arms that can extend as high as a building, Skullbot is the perfect candidate for collecting the berries from the highest tree tops, as none of the other robots in All Stood Square can reach this high. Fael and Skullbot make the perfect team and get the job done quickly. At night when asleep, Skullbot can tuck his arms in the back of his tray-like body and get a good nights shut-eye after a long days work.
PURE EVIL This robot is nothing but bad news. He has been evil since the day he was made, so the other robots have banished him from the town with his side-kick, Destroyer. They hide in the far away waste lands, while PE thinks up there next big scheme. Can the town stop them before itâ€™s too late?
DESTR OYER Beep, beep, mmmm , beep. Whenever you hear that noise it is in your best interest to run! This metal-head will bash and destroy anything that gets in his path. He was created by Pure Evil to help him try take over All Stood Square. He has no brain and therefore canâ€™t talk, so he swings his chain and ball arms around to get what he wants.
CREAM E AR U SQ ONE W E CR
Cream is one of the tallest bots in All Stood Square. His legs can shorten and lengthen, which comes in handy when tagging high spots on buildings or shops. He also can help Sharky climb on to roof tops. The only problem is his white face can easily be seen at night time. But when he gets embarrassed his pale face will turn as red as the balls on his head.
SHARKY This little trouble maker has been causing mischief in the town since a young age. He got his name due to his ocean blue coloured parts, anchor necklace and barnacles on the bottom of his boots. His four arms come in handy when it comes to painting in a hurry. Sharky started the graffiti crew â€œSquaresâ€? and can often be found lurking in the early hours of the morning, wearing his favourite skull-printed bandana to hide his identity.
ROLLO Rollo is your typical, quiet, brainy bot. He spends most of his time working on new robot parts, studying the history of machines and rolling around. Most of the other bots feel sorry for poor Rollo as he is often caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.
SQUIS HY This huge, lanky robot is made up of strong metal and squishy rubber parts. In the winter it is said that some of the smaller creatures of the town hide and curl up in his layers of soft rubber to keep warm and save energy. But Squishy is quite clumsy and is known to fall over. Smaller bots, be careful!
GHOST KING Then thereâ€™s the big, rich, Ghostking. This massive ball of metal has lived in his castle for centuries. He is a Ghost farmer who looks after all the ghosts in the town. He has the ability to suck up evil ghosts into his crystal ball and banish them from All Stood Square. He gets along well with the robots of the town and takes all the young bots on tours of his massive castle.
SKARY Skary is the town scarecrow. But he doesn’t scare away crows from the crops. Instead, he scares unwanted ghosts away from Ghostkings castle. He is positioned at the entrance of the castle and has the ability to see ghosts. He is built from wood, straw and a big burnt pumpkin head. You’ll spot him from a mile away, wearing his favourite big floppy hat.
DOEY+ BABU SLOW DOWN
This big, doey pile of metal spends most of his time wondering around not doing or saying a lot. When heâ€™s not doing that, he is trying to remember what he was saying and doing, which was nothing in the first place. His cute pink friend Babu often whispers in Doeyâ€™s ear to do silly things and with out thinking he usually does them.
SMOG MACHI NE Cough, cough! Geezz, you would think after all the smog this robot has breathed in he would be used to it by now. Smog Machineâ€™s cylinder-like body is full of smoke! When ever he gets angry or annoyed his drain-like arms let out a huge puff of smoke, making any robot or creature around him pass out or feel sick.
BUTTO NS If you ever need parts fixed or changed Buttons is the one to see. This robot is always fixing and improving the high-paying robots of the square. Although, he is quite silly and can sometimes get parts wrong or mixed up, leaving the bot looking a little worse then before they saw him.
HOKEY +PO Ø
Look out, look out! It’s a swarm of Jubs! But it’s just an average day for Hokey and Po, the Jub-catchers. Hokey and Po make the perfect team. Hokey can be seen shooting smoke from the top of his head to paralyze the Jubs, whilst Po scoops them off the ground with his big mouth. But make sure you call them ASAP as they are known to have day naps that leave them drowsy and not very functional.
REAP ER This grinning robot is not as scary as he seems. He hates the day light so can only be seen at night. His body is a glass cabinet where he stores evil shadows that he has caught, so they donâ€™t disturb the sleeping town. When he gets home from a long night, he takes the cabinet out and leaves it outside so that the morning sunlight destroys the evil shadows. Come sunset, itâ€™s back to work for Reaper!
DEAD BANKER REST IN PEACE
Dead Banker is the transparent robot. This sad, soul-less robot wasn’t always like this. He used to be the happy banker of the town but one day got in the way of Pure Evil’s plans to rob the bank and his soul was taken from his body. He will now live forever, but can’t communicate with any of the other bots. Pure Evil also put an evil hat on him so the transperency spell can never be broken.
