Heh heh, that reminds me of a Simpsons episode, which made fun of BattleBots (one of those fighting robot shows). The grand champion was a robot that looked identical
to that robot (I knew they were copying it from something, but I didn't know what movie/show it was from).
So, it seems to me that using this design for mech wars (or BattleBot, whatever you call it) is an older idea that's been around since the movie or show(s) came out.
