Follow the straight path and ride the large elevator down until you reach the boss area. You'll get a double circle gong-checkpoint, but use your lives very sparingly, especially at the start of the battle.

Good luck with acing the level.


Stage 1:
The Collector has three stages. The first stage is fairly easy; pop the sides of the machine and make sure you don't get crushed by it. The machine has a fixed pattern as it will crush the left, right, and center sides respectively. After popping both sides once, the machine will gain an added attack. It will spit out three electrified barrels. Again, this goes in a fixed pattern. If the machine is about the slam the right, it fires the barrels to the left - and just the other way around when it's about the crush the left. When it's about to crush the center, it will aim for the center, so now you know where to stay away.  After popping both sides once more, the machine is devastated and the next stage will begin shortly.

Stage 2:
You should move to the very right of the elevator, because it's possible to get a sneak attack of some sorts on the next boss. Hop against the brain on it's arm before it even moves - that's a little extra right there!
The machine quickly grows angry so avoid the crushing arms. It will send out two smaller creatures that follow you, so pop their brains quickly. After more creatures have been spit out, brains on the inside of the arms are revealed.  Pop these brains, along with the brains on the left and right sides of each arm, and the arms are disposed of. Thus, the third and most difficult stage begins.

Stage 3:
The machine is much smaller now, but it's also more agile than ever. It quickly opens it's arms from which tons of, well, electrified tons will be shot. Your best bet for survival is to stay exactly in front of the machine. Pop the two brains on the side when you get the chance. The machine will pound the ground with a big stamp, causing it to rain electrified barrels from the sky. You can move all the way to the left, or you can try to sneak through two barrels, but it's fairly tricky. The machine repeats the pattern of shooting and pounding, with more difficult patterns of raining barrels, but it comes down to the same.

At the next stamp, a box comes falling down. When you get the chance, drag it to the middle of the machine. This allows you to eventually pop the remaining five brains when the arms are extended and ready to shoot electrified barrels.
After destroying the machine, chase The Collector and make sure you grab the [THE BATTLE ON ICE] Audio object prize bubble along the way. Sit back and enjoy the LittleBigEnding, you've certainly earned it in my opinion!
