BACKGROUND: The centrepiece of Bowser Jr's Fearsome Fleet, this huge mech was used as a weapon by Bowser's armies to conquer various other empires and colonies in the outer space surrounding Mushroom World. When Mario came and defeated Gobbleguts, Bowser Jr then brought out this ultimate weapon to defeat that pesky Mario.
Alas for the Koopa Troop, it was defeated by Mario with the assistance of Yoshi, and blown to pieces in the ensuing battle.

QUOTES:
"So you want a Grand Star, do ya? Well come on, tough guy! Let's see if you're any match for Megahammer!" - Bowser Jr in Super Mario Galaxy 2

STATS AND STRATEGIES:
Games: Super Mario Galaxy 2
HP: 10
Speed: Pretty fast.
Attack Pattern: Shoots various Bullet Bills and Banzai Bills while sometimes smashing down the hammers that make up the robot's hands to generate killer shockwaves. After two hits to the panels on the front, Mario goes to the back of the boss and it attacks a bit more often.
Basic Strategies: For the first few attacks, eat the Bullet Bills fired and shoot them at the blue panels on the front of the robot to damage it. Then, take the sling star to the other side and fire a Bullet at the panel on it's back, while dodging the various shots and shockwaves from the hammers. Be careful, if you attack too fast, the boss will block your bullet attacks with the hammers. After all panels are destroyed, Bowser Jr will open the top of the robot to reveal the glass casing, and it'll duck when it attacks, so shoot Bullet Bills at Bowser Jr's cockipit to destroy the machine and get a Grand Star.
