“BattleBots” is a reimagined take of the killer robot combat sport from Whalerock Industries and the creators of the original “BattleBots” franchise, Ed Roski and Greg Munson. The homeade robots will battle against each other, in a single elimination tournament style format, until there is one champion.
BattleBots is awesome: flying shrapnel, fiery explosions, the clank of metal on metal. The battles are fun, many of the builders have entertaining personalities and gimmicks, and there are always some really cool moments in an episode for enthusiasts of robotics, engineering and motorized mayhem. let's just hope the robots don't take revenge some day :D
The box is locked... The lights are on... It's robot FIGHTING time!
This show is metallic mayhem. Clever engineers, geeks and freaks lovingly craft their own versions of remote control fighting machines ... and then send them into a pit to destroy one another.
It's amazing to see the different variations on a theme. There are flame throwers, flying drones, and modular bots. The only sad point is that the relatively "boring" wedges that tend to dominate, but the slammers, spinners, and flippers can certainly hold their own.
If you've ever wanted to create your own robot, this show will you vicariously live out that dream without spending tens of thousands of dollars.
