s e t a g i t s inve IT WAS A WARM EVENING IN TUPWOOD VILLAGE AND OFFICER JAXON WAS ENJOYING THE SUNSHINE AS HE SLOWLY MADE HIS EVENING ROUNDS, CHECKING THAT ALL WAS WELL, BEFORE HE WENT HOME AND HAD A WELL DESERVED OIL BATH. JUST AS HE WAS THINKING ABOUT HEADING BACK HOME, HE NOTICED SOMETHING SHINY JUST UNDER THE HEDGE UP AHEAD, HE WENT TO INVESTIGATE...

10


‘WELL WELL WELL, WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE?’ HE THOUGHT. ‘I’M SURE THAT’S PEARL’S WAND. WHAT ON EARTH IS IT DOING UNDER A HEDGE, THERE’S NO WAY SHE WOULD WANT TO LOSE THAT?’ HE PICKED UP THE WAND AND SET OFF TOWARDS HOME. FURTHER ALONG THE PATH, JAXON SPOTTED SOMETHING THAT ALWAYS MADE HIM ANGRY, SOMEONE HAD DROPPED SOME LITTER AT THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. IT WAS AN EMPTY MILKSHAKE CUP, AND WAS ALMOST DEFINITELY BIG PAUL’S! JAXON PICKED UP THE CUP, PUT IT IN THE NEARBY BIN AND CARRIED ON HIS JOURNEY.

11


AS HE LEFT THE TOWN CENTRE, JAXON SPOTTED SOMETHING VERY WORRYING INDEED. A SHINY WHITE DANCING SHOE LAY AT THE SIDE OF THE PATH. THIS SHOE WAS DEFINITELY ONE OF BRENT BOOGIE’S, BUT BRENT WAS NOWHERE TO BE SEEN. ‘THIS REALLY DOESN’T LOOK GOOD. BRENT MUST BE IN TROUBLE, HE WOULD NEVER LEAVE HIS SHOES LAYING AROUND!’ PICKING UP THE SHOE, JAXON RUSHED TOWARDS BRENT BOOGIE’S HOUSE, THROUGH THE EIGHT ACRE WOODS. AS HE RAN THROUGH THE WOODS, HE FOUND MORE AND MORE OF HIS FRIENDS THINGS.

12


FIRST, THERE WAS JACK’S SKATEBOARD, THEN LOO LOO’S HANDBAG. JAXON WAS HORRIFIED, CONVINCED THAT SOMETHING TERRIBLE HAD HAPPENED. HE CONTINUED THROUGH THE WOODS, GATHERING EVERYTHING HE FOUND. SOON, HE REALISED THAT THESE ITEMS WERE LEADING HIM STRAIGHT TO PROFESSOR MUNCH’S HOUSE.

13


NERVOUSLY, JAXON WALKED TOWARDS THE HOUSE. IT WAS VERY QUIET AND DARK AND THERE WAS NO SIGN OF ANY OF HIS E-BOT FRIENDS. HE KNOCKED ON THE DOOR, BUT THERE WAS NO ANSWER. ‘PROFESSOR MUNCH, ARE YOU IN THERE?’ HE CALLED. STILL NO ANSWER.

JAXON PUSHED LIGHTLY ON THE DOOR AND, SURE ENOUGH, IT WAS UNLOCKED SO HE SLOWLY SWUNG IT OPEN...

SURPRISE! THE LIGHTS CAME ON TO REVEAL ALL OF HIS FRIENDS GATHERED TOGETHER FOR A SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY. THIS WAS ONE INVESTIGATION WITH A VERY HAPPY ENDING.

RUSTY: Today, we are lucky enough to have the glamorous Mrs Palmer in the hot seat. Thank you for being here today, and I must say, that’s a beautiful ring you are wearing. Was that a pressy from anyone special? mrs palmer: If you think I’m going to give you any gossip about my private life then you are seriously mistaken Rusty. RUSTY: Ok, it was worth a try. You are well known for your ruthless ‘death grip’, and for being a feared member of the Resistorbots, but surely someone as glamorous as you must have a softer side? mrs plamer: Oh, of course Rusty, I’m just a squidgy marshmallow inside. My heart is just so full of love and soppy stuff. NO! You silly little E-Bot, what you see is what you get. I fight when I need to fight and nothing scares me, especially not ROBOB! RUSTY: This may seem like a stupid question then, but have you ever considered becoming an E Bot and living a cleaner, happier life? mrs palmer: NEVER! I will never let any human dictate what I can or cannot do. I answer to Miss Merize and Miss Merize only. I have total faith in her and I will be loyal to the Resistorbots ‘til the end. RUSTY: But, E-Bots are happy to help humans because of the love and friendship they get in return. It seems to me that all you get from Miss Merize is fear, chaos and a big headache! mrs palmer: It’s true that Miss Merize is a strict ruler, but she is leading us on a path to freedom and control. It will all be worth it, eventually. RUSTY: I wouldn’t be so sure. Speaking of Miss Merize, you must know of some juicy secrets about her? mrs palmer: Do you really think I would be stupid enough to tell you secrets about my queen? Do you not remember what happened to your

mrs palmer loves.... 22

friend Flashy, when he showed everyone that picture of Miss Merize at her Zumba class? RUSTY: Ooh, I do remember. Poor Flashy, his lens cap pops off every time he thinks about that day. Moving on… you were recently ‘flashed’ by Flashy, as you left a party looking a bit dodgy. Can you tell us about that photo? mrs palmer: Look it’s no secret that I like going out and having a good time. I’m sick of the reporters, particularly Flashy, sticking their noses in. There is nothing wrong with a robot enjoying herself, is there? RUSTY: Of course not, so long as nobody gets hurt. mrs palmer: Oh ‘Nobody’ will get hurt, that I can promise you. (ha ha ha) RUSTY: You leave Nobody alone. He’s a very good friend of mine. mrs palmer: Oh calm down Rusty, you have no sense of humour. I was kidding of course. RUSTY: Let’s move on to a happier subject... A little hornet (Honey) tells me that it’s your birthday in a few days, what have you asked for? mrs palmer: Bling, bling and more bling! Actually, there’s a particular sparkly, shiny gem that I have my eye on at the moment, you may have heard of it …The Buzz Ball? RUSTY: Now you know I will never talk to ANY Resistorbot about The Buzz Ball. I’m afraid that’s one gem you will never have on your finger. mrs palmer: Well, you never know Rusty. I will certainly be keeping my fingers crossed. RUSTY: Ha! Well good luck with that. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to talk to me today, I hope you have a happy birthday, but I hope you DON’T get all you wish for. mrs palmer: Oh, cheer up grumpy!

CHAPTER THREE

PREVIOUSLY IN THE ADVENTURES OF ROBOB... Curious to know why ROBOB keeps sneaking out, Si decides to follow his brother to the old Life-Bot factory. There, he discovers the existence of the Buzz Ball. Overcome with jealousy, Si confronts ROBOB and things get physical. As they fight, disaster strikes as Si is left with a broken key and is running out of power. Now read on...


r

OBOB had frantically tried to find a way to fix Si’s key. He had tried sticking it with glue, but that had only worked for about an hour or so. They had tried to wind him up with a screwdriver, but Si didn’t even like to remember that, it had hurt so much and hadn’t worked anyway. Si felt depressed. There didn’t seem to be any way to keep him wound up. He was so deep in thought that he didn’t notice General Choob rolling towards him. “What’s up with you, metal head?” he asked unkindly, “Lost your key? Oh crikey, you really have lost your key, haven’t you?” Si winced, the last person he needed to deal with just now was General Choob, especially as he seemed to have noticed Si’s missing key. “Go away Choob, I’m not interested in anything you’ve got to say”. He tried to walk passed, but Choob moved to block his way. “I can help you” he said, with a devious smile, “or

at least I know someone who can”. “I said I’m not interested, now let me pass”. General Choob stood his ground. “Come on Si, don’t tell me you’re happy just to let yourself wind down. What sort of life would that be? Only able to watch what’s going on, not to take part. That’s what is going to happen you know, and sooner than you think. I’ve noticed you getting slower and slower. I know someone who, for a small consideration, would be willing to fit you with some nice, shiny batteries. You’ll be faster and stronger than ever. Imagine that, no more winding up, just constant power!” Si hated the fact that he was seriously tempted. To be able to run again, and to see without it becoming blurred, it was even becoming an effort to talk. What General Choob was offering sounded like an answer to his prayers. Surely there was no harm in just finding out what this person was after, not that he would have anything to do with it of course, just to see. “OK Choob, who is this person and what do they want from me?”


“Oh nothing much, little E-Bot. Just some information. Meet me here at afternoon break and I’ll introduce you. No pressure, but you won’t regret it, I promise”. General Choob trundled away looking so pleased with himself that Si felt even more worried about what he had just agreed to. He knew ROBOB would be horrified that he was even thinking about using batteries. All the E-Bots were concerned about the environment and batteries were a definite no-no. ‘Well, he’s not the one who’s about to lose all his power, is he?’ thought Si. ‘And it’s his fault I’m like this anyway. I’d like to see how he’d like it, not to be able to run and play with all his friends,

feeling weaker every day’. The more Si thought about it, the happier he felt about his decision to meet this mysterious person. After all, what could they possibly want from him that could be that important? ‘No’ he thought, ‘This could be the best thing for me, and I have to think about myself now. No one else cares what happens to me anyway’. Si eagerly made his way to the meeting place in the playground that afternoon. General Choob was obviously nervous, Si could see him rolling back and forth, and every so often checking his watch.


There was someone standing beside him, but Si couldn’t make out who it was until he got a bit nearer. Si recognised her immediately. She stood a good three inches higher than him, with her flaming red hair and hypnotic single eye. It could only be Miss Merize. She was a legend amongst the robots, mainly because of all the trouble she caused. She had formed her own band of robots who had become known as the Resistorbots, and she was bad news! “Welcome Si,” she said in a gentle tone. “General

Choob tells me you have a problem that I may be able to solve for you”. As she spoke, she turned her huge eye on to Si. He felt immediately drawn to her, like there was nothing he wouldn’t do for her. “I have a friend Dr Creek, you may have heard of him. He would be able to fit you with batteries as soon as you want,” she continued. “And then all your problems would be over, in fact, you’d be better than ever. Just think of it Si, stronger than ROBOB, faster than ROBOB, he wouldn’t be such a big man then would he?”


It was all starting to make perfect sense to Si. Everything Miss Merize was saying sounded perfectly reasonable. Little did he know that Miss Merize was using her hypnotic power on him, and he was powerless to resist her. “What is it you want from me?” he asked. Miss Merize smiled her slow, evil smile; this was going to be so easy. “Oh nothing much, Si. Very little in fact, considering the very great favour I am doing you. I just need a little bit of information. I have heard of an amazing ball of power which could be very useful to the Resistorbots, and something tells me that your brother knows where it is. As you two are so close, I’m sure he would have told you all about it. Now that we‘re going to be such good friends it would be a very kind gesture if you would let me know where it is. That’s all I’m

asking, a tiny thing wouldn’t you say? To save your life!” Si tried to resist, he really did, but he wanted that power so much and, after all, what harm could it do? Everyone was going to find out about the Buzz Ball sooner or later anyway, and Miss Merize seemed like such a kind caring person. “I do know where it is as it happens,” he said nervously, “But I’ll need you to sort out my batteries first because it’s a long walk and I don’t have enough power left to make it that far”. Miss Merize looked at him hard, as if trying to work out if he was tricking her or not. She was obviously satisfied with what she saw because she smiled and said “Of course little robot, we must see to you first. Come with me now to meet Dr Creek and, as soon as you have the power, you can take us to the hiding place”.


LATER THAT DAY

Triumphantly he handed over the box to Miss Merize, who had been whizzing up and down with excitement.

It had taken Dr Creek no time at all to fit Si with his new battery pack and Si couldn’t believe how much better he felt.

“Give it to me, give it to me,” she shrieked as she snatched the box greedily from Si’s hands.

Miss Merize had been as good as her word, and he now was stronger and faster than his twin brother. Not that he’d seen ROBOB yet today. To be honest, he was a bit worried about what ROBOB would say when he saw the shiny new batteries. ROBOB hated anything to do with the Resistorbots, but he didn’t know how nice and helpful Miss Merize was. He must have got it wrong. The sun was going down when Si met Miss Merize and Dr Creek on the hill. The factory was looking dark and dangerous, but not as dangerous as the two Resistorbots standing either side of Si. Miss Merize was bubbling with suppressed excitement, her great eye was looking around in a wild, almost crazy way. Dr creek looked particularly evil in the half light as he gazed around with his one red eye. Not for the first time, Si felt a bit scared. “Why have you brought us here Si?” Miss Merize asked. “This factory closed up years ago”. Miss Merize rolled herself right up to Si’s face and leaned in towards him. “If you’re trying to trick me you’ll regret it, believe me” she snarled. Si was shocked by how different Miss Merize sounded now. Gone was the gentle persuasive voice from earlier, now she sounded threatening and scary. “Its just down here,” Si stuttered, walking on ahead towards the great doors of the factory. He could see where the earth had been disturbed where they had buried the box containing the Buzz Ball. He started to kick away the soil and then dig with his hands. He dug and dug, surely it hadn’t been hidden as deep as this. Finally, he felt the edges of the box, and he started to pull it from the ground. It felt lighter than he remembered, and it came out easily.

She put the box on the floor, and they all gathered around as she slowly lifted the lid. Si braced himself for the shaft of light he expected to shoot out of the box, but... Nothing. They all crowded around the open box. Si could not believe his eyes. The box was empty. Someone had obviously got to the Buzz Ball before him, and he had an awful feeling he knew who that someone was. Si gulped and looked nervously at Miss Merize, who looked incandescent with rage. If she had been a kettle she would have been boiling and whistling, Si cowered in front of her, terrified. “Where is it, little robot?” She sounded amazingly calm. “You do know that I will hurt you if you have cheated me and I have many ways of causing you pain. And when I have finished with you, I’ll let Dr Creek experiment on you. There’s nothing he enjoys more than messing about with E-Bots”. Dr Creek wheeled towards him with an excited look on his face. “No please,” begged Si, “It was here, I promise you. ROBOB must have somehow found out about this and has taken it. I didn’t try to cheat you, I would never do that. I can see how powerful you are, and I wouldn’t be that stupid”. Miss Merize seemed to calm down as Si flattered her. “Well I’m glad you realise that Si,” she said, “because now you are in my debt, and I expect complete loyalty from you. I also expect you to find me the Buzz Ball, and I won’t be satisfied until it is in my hands”. Si breathed a sigh of relief. “Of course,” he said, “I will find it for you, I promise”. Miss Merize turned her back on Si and rolled away with Dr Creek close behind.


Si sat down on the ground and put his head in his hands, his life had changed completely. He had given himself to the Resistorbots. In fact, he now was a Resistorbot. “Well so be it,” he thought. He hadn’t been that successful as an E-Bot, always in ROBOB’s shadow. Maybe this was what he was meant to be all along. High on the hill above the factory, ROBOB looked

down at his brother. Thank goodness Luni had heard Miss Merize’s plans for this evening and he’d been able to save the Buzz Ball. But he had lost Si, his beloved twin brother and in some ways it was his own fault. Well that was something he would have to live with. The main problem he had to face right now was how to stop Miss Merize and the Resistorbots getting their hands on the Buzz Ball.

santa II

by James Childs

OMG! This festive E-Bot by James Childs is TOHOHOHOTALLY AWESOME! We just love the details in the drawing, especially on his E-Bot logo.

Santa II can detect who is good or bad, he is always jolly and is seriously quick! His special weapon is his ‘rapid fire snowball launcher’. Snow balls just grow in his hands and he can throw them at the speed of sound. Pretty sick, hey?

santa 11 and rocket warrior will be part of the robob series 2 cards, coming soon. 40


rocket warrior

by Callum Marriott

Yee-Haaaah Cow-Bot! This mega Resistorbot, by Callum Marriott, immediatley got our attention. The ROBOB team were already discussing a cowboy Life-Bot when this super design arrived. Perfect timing, Callum! We just love his weapons, his rocket powered butt and, of course, his GROOVY BOOTS!

All winning designs will be made into real collector cards and become part of The Adventures of ROBOB trading card game. Winning artists will each receive an exclusive goody pack from the TAOR team.

by

Samuel

Today was the day for the big race in Tupwood. Everyone was excited, but the most excited of all was F.1. Last year, he had come very close to beating his biggest enemy, Arez, and this year he was determined to win. There were some new Life-Bots in the race this year, some were Resistorbots, like Mokayama and Terrorscope, and some were E-Bots, like Life-Cycle. They were all really fast but they hadn’t qualified for the final, so now it was just between F.1 and Arez, the same as last year. Arez was just as worried. He knew that F.1 had been practicing hard and also that Mik-E had been adjusting his motor to make him go even faster. Arez was talking to General Choob about it, “If only there was some way I could slow him down” said Arez. General Choob looked at him in a sneaky way, “Well, why don’t we try and think of a way to make him lose?” he said in a nasty voice. Arez just laughed and said, “Well if you can think of a way, I will go along with it”. “Don’t you worry, I will think of something” replied Choob. Later that day, the racers were lining up to start the race, they both looked really nervous. Arez was waiting to see if General Choob had come up with a plan. At last he saw him in the distance, he gave Arez an evil smile, ‘Good’thought Arez, he must have done something to F.1. He started to feel a lot happier. Just then, Brick, who was in charge of the racers, came over and told Arez to change lanes with F.1. “You should be in this lane because you won last year” he said. So Arez moved over and as soon as the whistle blew they were off! They both shot off as fast as they could and, even though F.1 was really fast, it looked like Arez would beat him again. Arez was feeling really good ‘F.1 is not going to beat me now’ he thought. But, just then, he felt himself slipping all over the place and, even though he tried hard to keep straight, he slid way off course and ended up stuck in a haystack in the middle of a field! There was nothing he could do, he just had to sit there and watch F.1 whiz past and through the finish line. Arez was sooo cross. “CHOOB!!!!” he shouted, but General Choob didn’t hear him, he was already half way back to the village, just stopping long enough to hide the large can of oil that he had taken from Mik-E’s shed. He wasn’t going to be going anywhere near Arez for a long time!

The Adventures of ROBOB trading card game has been designed to work for all ages and abilities. There are many different ways to play, from simple ‘Trumps’ and ‘Who’s who?’ games, to a more strategic battle where you may need to sacrifice certain robots for the good of your team.

Lay your Battle Board on a flat surface. Split the cards into two piles, one for the E-Bots and one for the Resistorbots. Now choose your army and shuffle the cards. Place your army face down and, without looking, take the top 15 cards from that pile. These are the cards you will battle with. You can now look at your cards but don’t show your opponent. Now lay the 7 ‘Action Cards’ face down in the spaces in the centre of the battle board. Player one should now select one of the ‘Action Cards’ and turn it over for all to see. Both players should now look through their cards and select three characters that have a high score for that action. Place these cards, face down on the 3 play areas on your side of the board. Now battle the 3 cards, 1 at a time, based on the action that has been chosen. The higher number wins. The winner of each battle captures their opponents card and places it in jail until the end of the game.

EVERY MONTH, RUSTY FIRES QUESTIONS AT YOUR FAVOURITE ROBOTS ABOUT... ERM... YOUR OTHER FAVOURITE ROBOTS! THIS MONTH, TRIPION TELLS ALL.

Most BORING? Oggle! He goes on and on and on about things he’s spotted on the internet. I find it hard to stay awake when he starts waffling.

best taste in music? Me, obviously. I love JLS , Jason Derulo and Jessie J. I went to her concert and it was A-MA-ZING!

most talented? Easy...Dr Gon. You should see him on the drums... and the guitar... and the piano... all at the same time!

clumsiest? Roland. He runs over EVERYTHING, including himself, sometimes.

bravest? I’d say Dr Creek is pretty brave. He has to be to spend so much time with Miss Merize! (Please don’t tell her I said that)

most hyperactive? That has to be Mittens. The crazy crab just doesn’t sit still. Miss Merize sometimes ties him down to stop him fidgeting. That does make him a bit crabby! LOL

nicest e-bot? There is no such thing as a nice E-Bot. They all think they are so special and good and pure. It makes me puke!

scariest? Wow, that’s a tough one. None of them really scare me, but I could see that Mantrix and Kenny could be quite frightening.
