Out of intrest, how many people have heard of this show? It's pretty awesome. The contenders homemake their own robots and pit them against eachother, the robot the did the best in the round will move up in the championships. There has been around 7 championships now. If there is a new championship I imagen "Wheely Big Cheese" or "Razor" would win, Mainly because flippers and crushers beat most robots. :P

I use to watch it, but it doesn't seem to get shown on T.V. Quite as much.

Use to like Puss Cat, 101, Wild Thing, Razor, Tornado, and the one that use to catch on fire alot. I didn't like Hypnodisc and Choas 2

(What the Puss-y is censored.)

I'm pretty sure I used to watch it, or some show centered around a similar concept.
I forget names. Sue me.

I caught a few episodes on the Space channel. It was especially cool if one of the contestant robots managed to beat up one of the house robots.

^Hell yeah, Sir Killalot is WELL over 120 KG, it's impossible to flip him without getting a good angle. :P

I used to watch it all the time while it was on the BBC, then it got moved to channel 5, and finally onto one of the worst channels on TV, Jetix. I'm not sure if it's still on now.

Also once hypno disc managed to wreck matilda and the one with the flamethrower.

And why hasn't anyone mentioned gemini or behemoth? they rocked.

Hypno-disc has always been my favorite. I found it AWESOME when Hypno-Disk wrecked Matildas shell, and at the end of the show, they showed her covered in bandages. XD That rocked.

Gemini rocked hardcore, yeah, but, the seperate robots were weak and light, making them good flipper pray.

I liked Behemoths design, alot, shame it never won any championships though. (To my knowledge.) :(

I always found Gemini fairly amusing to begin with, but if I remember correctly, it soon went out within it's first few heats. So I never really looked at it again.

Can't remember Behemoths?

Although just thought of another robot which I always cheered for Bigger Brother.

I don't remember any of the names for the robots, just that the show was entertaining.
