Details of My Chest Battle Armor



My many weapons and defensive features allowed me to survive the Great Moon Battle referenced elsewhere on my website.  My standard exterior weapons are obvious to see but did you know that my Battle Chest Armor has extensive features as well?  You may have wondered what the dials were for but in this article, I explain in nauseating detail what everything does and how it operates. Below is the master diagram that was issued to me in Robot College and below that are my explanations taken from my notes during class.  We start from the ride side at the top of my Battle Unit.  Working toward the bottom we finish at the Lower Armor Skirting. Then start again on the top left and work our way down. Stay with me now and please pay attention!




  • Neck Pate Mount – Reinforced mounting point for my rotating head unit.
  • Launcher Right Dart – Soft ends are filled with sonic deadening material that disrupts the enemy’s detection systems.
  • Upper Chest Plate – Large descending armor unit which supports Darts, ID Plate and the Acoustic Disrupter Patterns.
  • Flexible Armor Socket – Allows complete movement of Space Sphere Gun Arm.
  • Audio sensors – Used to detect the sonic signals from enemy ‘Bots.
  • Portal Cinch Strap – Adjustable to align Water Ray Opening.
  • Sonic Wave Display – Visual record of signals detected from enemy ‘Bots.
  • Brightness For Wave Display – We try to keep this low to avoid visual detection but can be turned up if needed.
  • Aiming Sight – Used to quickly shoot from the hip without sonic alignment (not recommended).
  • Space Sphere Gun – Launches round projectile that upon impact emits blast of toxic acoustic vibrations.
  • On / off Wave Display – Toggles Sonic Wave Display to conserve power (if needed).
  • Amplitude Slider – Raises or lower amplitude of main Sonic Display.
  • Lower Armor Skirting – Complete protection for delicate bending unit contained behind it.



  • Upper Dynamic Pick Up Arm Support – Super Rotation Joint used for picking up things.
  • Acoustic Dimple Disrupter Pattern – Serves as a avoidance system since enemy ‘Bots use sonic detention signals.
  • Launcher Left Dart – Soft ends are filled with sonic deadening material that disrupts the enemy’s detection systems.
  • Expandable Socket For Pick Up arm – Has special accordion like function for increased reach.
  • Sponsor Identification Badge, Marx Toys – Requirement for Earth visa and implemented before Moon departure.
  • Sliding Chest Plate Strap Buckle – Allows lateral adjustment to align Water Ray Portal
  • Contoured Abdominal Protectors – Provides maximum movement with increase flexibility.
  • Articulated Pick Up arm – Allows me to pick up things.
  • Water Ray Portal – Offensive weapon used to short circuit enemy life e support systems.
  • Wave Display Bumper Guard – Provides increased protection for sensitive display unit.
  • Central Wave Device Housing – Main sonic detention system control unit.
  • Anti-Vibration Mount for Wave Selector – Most sensitive part of the sonic detection unit and requires additional protection.
  • Broad Spectrum Wave Trimmer – Course adjustment to detect general sonic waves from enemy ‘Bots.
  • Fine Tune Wave Selector – Homes in on sonic waves via Broad Spectrum signals.
  • Wave Display Emergency Cancel – Since the sonic display itself emits signals, it can be muted when enemy is close.


Well there you have it. I studied hard on this to achieve my Moon Second Class Robot status. The Moons’ different environment warranted each one of these well thought out battle systems.  On Earth, war is waged by the use of physical impact.  However, on the Moon – Robots engage in conflict by utilizing subsonic signals or interstellar waves to disrupt and even harm the enemy.  Even though the Moon’s surface is a vacuum and contains no air for sound to travel, subsonic signals are in a special category that only Moon Robots can detect.  There is no Robot killing, just severe sonic disruptions of Robot life systems which mimic long periods of inactivity.  Yes, I guess that is kind of like being dead (but only for a while).  We Robots fear those long period of inactivity just as much as you Earthlings fear your kind of death.

  1. Hi Loo,
    It is so great to finally talk to you. I’ve known you since Christmas morning 1963, it’s truly an honor. I am enjoying reading about your chest plate armor there is so much I never knew about you, and I thought I knew all there was to know.
    I did notice you left out 3 detailed explanations on your lower right side. The on/off wave display, the all important space sphere gun, and the amplitude slider. Please , now that I have a better understanding of your gear, I need to know.
    I am really enjoying your site Loo, I’ll be checking back often.
    Your old pal,

  2. Greetings Joe and thank you for paying such close attention. I have updated the list and included the omissions you pointed out. It’s interesting to me that I had left out my Space Sphere Gun as it is my go to weapon of choice when I need to take a quick but decisive offensive response. My most powerful weapon, as you already know is my Space Rocket. But it requires the help of a second ‘Bot or here on Earth, one of you to load and arm. As opposed to my Space Sphere Gun which can have several Spheres loaded from any Munitions Support ‘Bot or again, one of you here on Earth. The omission is a clear signal to me that I take it for granted. However, leaving out the Wave Display toggle and the Amplitude Slider, heck – that was just lame on the my part.

    One last thing Joe. I think I remember you. Were you the guy with the crew cut and the front tooth missing? If I’m correct, you are among my favorites as you never tried to ride me and subsequently, didn’t break half of my transport wheels off.

    1. Yes that was me, how did you know! I have couple of old negatives from Christmas morning 1963 of you and me outside. I was the happiest kid in the world in those pictures. I plan to have those negatives professionally cleaned and restored. The original prints are long gone. When they are done I would love to send you a copy of them, you may enjoy seeing them.
      And don’t be so hard on yourself for leaving those feature details out. This is quite a project your are starting here. I am very excited to see it.
      Thanks for everything Big Loo!
