The Minifridge series of robots is a series of DSL LW Flail Shell Spinners made by G.K.. Some achived great success and others have not been seen in the community yet. The bots would go through various skins, before settling on the 42 skin that G.K. now skins practically all of his bots with.

This page will list the 9 incarnations to date.

Minifridge The Second was the next in the series to be built. This one, alongside Mouldy King Bash's Mini Mouldy Cheese 4, formed the hosting team of Wheely Tag. They made their way to the final, but were beaten. This Minifridge was legal, and now had 8 flail razors.

Minifridge 4

Builder: G.K.
Weight class: Lightweight
Weapon: 8 Flail Razors
Weapon power: 1 Mag
Drive: 2 Astroflight/Small Ant Wheels
Armor: N/A
Awards: BBEANS Rumble Participant, BBEANS Rumble Winner
Tournament wins: Battle 2: Beats Killer Green Yoshi 3-0, Battle 3: Beats Minor Launch Platform MK2 3-0, Battle 4: Beats Trance Hazard 3-0, Battle 5: Beats Reier's Avatar 3 2-1, Battle 6: Beats Deinonychus 3-0, Rumble: Beats Resentful Princess 2, AntonYYYm and Final Z.
Tournament Losses: Battle 1: Loses 2-1 to 1.8, Battle 7: Loses 3-0 to Bane X
Trivia: Used MeltyBrain AI.

Minifridge 4 was the most powerful Minifridge built so far, and the first to utilise MeltyBrain, a feature every Minifridge has since. G.K.'s eventual entry into BBEANS 6 was the joint second least-weaponed FSS in the tournament. It was extremely unstable, and suffered havok restarts through the tournament. After losing via havok restart to 1.8, Minifridge 4 shot up through the losers bracket, defeating Killer Gren Yoshi, Trance Hazard, Minor Launch Platform MK2, Reier's Avatar 3 and Deinonychus before being comprehensively crushed by fellow Shell Spinner Bane X. With a record of 5-2, it returned for the rumble, where it KO'd AntonYYYm, de-wheeled Final Z and de-weaponed Resentful Princess 2 to take the match. After garnering 2 votes in BTRSHDBBDDTBL, not enough to win, Minifridge 4 had finished 6 overall in BBEANS 6 and got G.K. a 25th overall ranking in the BBEANS standings.

Minifridge 5

Minifridge 5

Builder: G.K.
Weight class: Lightweight
Weapon: 10 Flail Razors
Weapon power: 1 Mag
Drive: 2 Astroflights/Small Ant Wheels
Armor: N/A
Trivia: Only Minifridge of no significance whatsoever.

Minifridge 5 was the first Minifrige to be built after BBEANS 6. This featured an updateed weapon setup and two more flail razors. However, it is the most unstable Minifridge to date and hasn't ever made a showing outside of G.K.'s copy of Clash Cubes AI. Minifridge 6 followed quickly afterwards.


Minifridge 6

Minifridge 6

Builder: G.K.
Weight class: Lightweight
Weapon: 10 Flail Razors
Weapon power: 1 Mag
Drive: 2 Astroflights/Small Ant Wheels
Armor: N/A
Trivia:

Currently the last 'Conventional' Minifridge, Minifridge 6 is identical to Minifridge 5 in almost every way. The only changes are the position of the lowest razors and the addition of a 20cm carbon fiber srimech. This made it considerably stable. This version is featured in NAR AI in Team G.K., and won Robotic International Wars Series 1, GK's only solo tournament win in DSL.

Minifridge 7

Minifridge 7

Builder: G.K.
Weight class: Lightweight
Weapon: 10 Flail Razors, 2 Typhoon Spikes
Weapon power: 1 Mag
Drive: 1 NPC/Hypno Wheel
Armor: N/A
Trivia:

G.K. started to innovate with the next Minifridge. Minifridge 7. This machine was inspired by Bane II, an SnS that G.K. looked at from another angle. He decided to try using one quick motor/wheel combo instead of two slow ones. The result was Minifridge 7. Minifridges 8 and 9 would be attempts to blend this design with less speed and more armour.

Minifridge 8

Builder: G.K.
Weight class: Lightweight
Weapon: 10 Flail Razors
Weapon power: 1 Mag
Drive: 1 Slimbody/Hypno Wheel
Armor: N/A
Trivia: Minifridge 8 was the first Minifridge to use downward flailing razors in some places to combat wedges better.

Minifridge 8 was the first of these experiments. It featured a Slimbody as the drive motor, but G.K. found this was too havoky for his liking.


Minifridge 9

Minifridge 9

Builder: G.K.
Weight class: Lightweight
Weapon: 10 Flail Razors
Weapon power: 1 Mag
Drive: 1 Mag/Hypno Wheel
Armor: N/A
Trivia:

Minifridge 9 was the second experiment. It featured a Magmotor as the drive motor, and G.K. seems to find this the best of the three one-wheeled Minifridges at the present time.
