I know (vaguely) one of the guys who is pretty well involved in the building of the arena (think he was in a team but I can't remember which bot, or when). I saw a rapebook post a week ago saying it's gonna go ahead again, thinking it was creative marketing.

I'm actually impressed, and will definitely be taking more interest!

Problem is, the self flippers dominated by the end. Someone needs to come up with a flipper type robot that has the ability to destroy another flipper type robot.

My design for a Robot would just involve it spewing lit thermite all over the place. I reckon its a winner.

I was called upon to go with my mate many years ago to the early heats for this. His proper building partner was in America and he needed help carrying the big lumpy thing and the spares/tools.

We went to some godforsaken ex RAF base where the show is filmed in a hangar.

They make everyone remove some electroniccy bit (I am not technically minded) so if someone is adjusting his chain saw/pick axe/nasty sharp chopper, somebody playing with their controller round the corner doesn't activate it accidentally.

The thing I remember the most is the small metal cage you have to go in when arming anything hydaulic or flamey, so that if it goes bang..... only you get strawberry jammed.

A strange creature came round giving advice and telling people what to do. I am still not sure if it was a man or a woman. He/She was one of the early winners and he worked for the show.

My mate got through and appeared on telly, but with the proper builder mate this time. His robot was mullahed!!!!

George Francis, of Chaos 2 fame? Anyway, I was up much too early for work last week and an old episode of Robot Wars was being repeated on some channel way down the list.. I thought it'd be a bit of a laugh, cheer me up. It wasn't as good as I remembered, perhaps even irritatingly stupid and bad. Not sure if this is a good idea Shocked There again it's not for me any more, I'm no longer 8 years old.

I think I stopped watching when the robots became too good, one hit and the other robot was over, then they set about destroying the house robots.

Didn't it move to a different channel? Also remember Craig Charles being really annoying.

I hope the old the House Robots are tucked away in some BBC warehouse, not dismantled Sad

The flipper bots were good, but the likes of Hypnodisc and Razor started to dominate towards the end Thumbs Up

these days there are plenty of mobility scooters to use for a drive train and battery's are a lot better
combine that with some hydraulics attached to some rams and the basic's are easy to source
