"Hopes of winning, out of 10? I'd give it 1.5."
Jonathan Pearce introduces Malc 1.5

Malc 1.5 (also referred to as Malc 1½ on TV) was a middleweight robot that exclusively fought in the second series of Robot Wars Extreme. It was eliminated in the first round of the Middleweight Championship after one of its wheels fell off while fighting Steel Sandwich.

Malc 1.5 had previously failed to qualify for Series 5. The team later competed in the Series 7 Middleweight Championship with Phoenix.

DesignEdit

Malc 1.5 was an invertible box-shaped robot with two outside rear wheels powered by overdriven wheelchair motors and armed with four static spikes at the front. The robot also featured aluminium armour and small side blades which were intended to prevent it from being stranded on its side when flipped. While robust in construction and displaying good pushing power, Malc 1.5's armour was easily damaged and its wheels were exposed, which contributed to its loss in its only battle.

QualificationEdit

Prior to Extreme 2, Malc 1.5 also fought in the Series 5 qualifiers. In its qualifier, it fought an as yet unknown opponent described as having a resemblance to Armour Geddon, and was pushed by Dozer for a considerable part of the battle.[1]

Malc 1.5 loses its wheel

Competing in the Middleweight Championship, Malc 1.5 faced reigning middleweight champion Typhoon, Steel Sandwich and Broadsword in the first round. It began by spinning around and staying out most of the early action, until it was hit by Typhoon and rammed into Steel Sandwich after driving over a flame jet. Malc 1.5 kept spinning close to the wall and CPZs, and was eventually attacked by Dead Metal and Shunt, both of whom sliced and pierced through Malc 1.5's top armour before Shunt propped it against the wall. Malc 1.5 escaped and slammed into Steel Sandwich, but its left-hand wheel fell off, severely hampering its mobility as it caught its spikes against Steel Sandwich's wheel guard and pushed it into another CPZ. Steel Sandwich escaped, but Malc 1.5 spun close to the wall, allowing Dead Metal to pin it against an angle grinder and attack again, before Malc 1.5 impaled itself against the wall with its spikes. Malc 1.5 was counted out by Refbot, eliminating it from the Middleweight Championship.
