Crew shout outs: Today we honor the Arena Crew, AKA the CrewBots - led by Peter Lambertson, Matt Neubauer and Shawn Lambertson. This incredible team not only designs, builds and repairs the BattleBox (a never ending job), but they also move all the robots in and out of the arena quickly and safely. Along with BattleBots Founder Trey Roski, they put out all the fires, they clear all the smoke, and they ready The Box for match after every loving match. Thanks all! ... See MoreSee Less

Crew shout outs: Today we honor Mark Setrakian, super genius bot builder and creator of Axis 2 - the robotic sculpture that holds the Giant Nut. ... See MoreSee Less
I know Mark’s a hella busy guy but I’d still love to see him roll out a new robotic work of art with today’s technology and put it into the Battlebox, even if just for a single exhibition match(because it would likely be so gloriously complex that any significant damage to it would make it an insane time sink to repair).
I loved that nut holder, I would be proud to place anything on display on its plate!
Its a little sad his recent work does nothing but hold Battlebot's nuts.
Way to go! 💀💚💜🖤
That is the coolest trophy display I have ever seen!!
Even though I didn’t get Battlebots here in the UK back then i was still in awe at what Mark created back then! Axis 2 is such a clever way of showing off the nut that I’m glad hes still around, even if not in the box itself 😀
Mechadon and Snake were marvels of engineering! The guy is a master!
He was also a judge with Peter Abrahamason at the 2009 BattleBots college event
he needs to put a new bot into the ring. the master was such a cool bot but of course i would love to see snake and mechadon again
That robotic trophy display is genius!
And he created his own giant robot combat TV, but unfortunately only last one season...
Is it time for another season yet? I am going thru withdrawal symptoms

Shoutout Saturday: Today we honor our script team Stad, Jay, Murray, Courtney And David. These folks stay up into the wee hours of the night fine tuning the wit and pizazz of our scripts. If you want to know who to blame for Faruq’s rhymes - look no further : ) ... See MoreSee Less
If by blame you mean thank from the bottom of my heart for helping to make Faruq the best part of the the show outside of the fighting itself then yes, I blame you all for that.
We applaud you!!! We love to hear Faruq’s introductions!!!! Great job!!
You all are amazing I love listening to the introductions. Thanks for all your brain storming
My family loves BattleBots, Faruq Tauheed's intros and Team Skorpios - BattleBot. This year, the script team has outdone themselves. Great job, keep it up ... your pun-filled efforts are truly appreciated and have brought much joy and laughter into our lives! 👏👏👏
Faruq’s intros are awesome! Great job! 😁
Love Farug's intros! Great job!!!!
All you do is appreciated but the biggest props go out for Faruq's intros!💜🖤💚💀
Thank you guys, this show is great.
I gotta admit. I am a little heartbroken those were not Faruq original.
Great crew for a great sport.
I visualized Faruq staying up nights to come up with his rhymes. Good work, script team.
Awww I'm disappointed. I thought he came up with them on his own 🙁
Very cool. I was wondering where Faruq's lines came from. After sitting through several of his retakes I'm surprised all y'all are still in his good graces (or maybe you're not, hmmmmm?) 😜😜
I almost Always hit the mute button for the introductory poems.
Watching the tournament right now . You guys rock!
I enjoy Tantrum’s introductions
Mark Biro as announcer was a legend, too! =D
Yes! Finally! My son can stop hearing me ask every episode: “I wonder who writes for Faruq. So many jokes only people of a certain age will get and really LOL!” Mystery solved. 😆
My favorite part!
Was wondering who came up with Faruq’s witty remarks.
Knowing that kind of takes half the fun out of it
They need to source dad's in this group for help. They are terrible!
Yeah, that's what you want in a serious sport - more scripted stuff. Goofy prewritten speeches are what brought all that respect to pro wrestling.
His rhymes are annoying just quick intros please
Which one do I look at for Brutalicious?
I ordered one for my Battlebots crazy 7 years old. He will love it!!!!
Ordered! Battlebots is a family favorite!!
Just ordered for Christmas
Order has been placed.
My thoughts on the words for X and Z are still lingering
I got my "B is for battle bots" yesterday. I think this book is great. Very inform as time for those kids just learning or grandparents. Great job
I ordered 4 yesterday! They’ll make great Christmas presents for my kids & my nieces & nephews. Ok, so maybe they’re more for my husband & his siblings who are lifelong fans 😀
Just ordered two for the kids this Christmas. Andrea, your team rocks!
Congratulations on your book, Andrea. 🤙
26$ for the book Canadian is fine. But $22 for the lowest priced shipping is way too high. 😥 to use as a comparison a similar sized book from barnes and noble is $7 to ship to Winnipeg. I hope they come out with a kindle version to help support their program.
I would've loved that as a child.
Loved going around with my boys to get the teams to sign ours🙂

Crew Shout outs: Today we honor Peter Abrahamson, AKA “The Bot Whisperer.“ Peter has been building and fighting robots since 1994, and has a depth of knowledge of robot fighting sports that is unprecedented. Pete is part of the selection committee, and brings Chris & Kenny up-to-speed on all the robots/individual matchups. Thank you Pete! ... See MoreSee Less
And he gives the best hugs.
Thank you for helping make a great show
Way to make things happen! 🖤💜💚💀
Awesome! Thanks for sharing. We have seen the “Bot Whisperer” in the credits and wondered what all he did!
One of the nicest guys in the sport!
You very good job!

He was great on the air at REMARS. Hope to see more of him

Wen Ronin Peter Abrahamson

Oh look what we just got! The new “B is for BattleBots” book by Andrea from Witch Doctor - coming soon to the BattleBots Store (perhaps the perfect gift for your young BattleBots fans?). ... See MoreSee Less
My son was a battlebot for Halloween he is 5 and obsessed lol
Definitely going to get this for my Battlebots-obsessed 6 year old!
Will she be signing personalized copies because my son would flip out if she did!
I obviously am beyond a kid's reading age, but I just want to see what all the letters are represented by!
Can't wait to get mine! 💀💚💜🖤
Perhaps the perfect gift for a 42 year old battlebots fan!!!
I need this for my daughter. NEED. IT!
My son will love this! We are constantly rewatching this season, he even talked one of his Kindergarten teachers into watching too! He’s asked to take his mini bots to school for show and tell almost every week
Great idea! We're getting one
Can't wait my grandkids will love it
This is great!👍
10 nerd points if anyone can guess Q, X and Z. 😉
Perfect time for Christmas
My son was just asking for battlebots books to read at bedtime. Looking forward to it 🙂
I need to get this for Xmas! Where can I buy?
Yes. YOUNG fans. ::shifty eyes::
oh how Fun!! I 💚💛💜 Witch Doctor!! 🙂
Waiting for Black Friday!
I love this!!
Should Put them in all stores, then we all can get them, as that would be an Interesting book especially for young kids and those new to Robotics and Battle Bots.
Lisa, check this out! Super cool!!
Greg DePlancke to go with his Christmas gift this year.
Found a book we can read our kid Kyla
Shout out Saturday: Today we honor our awesome camera and audio crews. If you like the way BattleBots looks and sounds please thanks these folks! ... See MoreSee Less
I don't *like* the look and sound of #BattleBots ... I LOVE it! It's one of the best produced live-event shows on television. Congratulations and a big shout-out to the camera and audio crews. Without YOU, the show wouldn't be as awesome as it is. Cannot wait for next season!
The whole production, front to back is awsome. Way way way better than that other bot show from across the pond.
Incredible work! Keeping up with that action can not be an easy job. Thanks for making #BattleBots a thrill to watch. Your crew ROCKS!
Awesome work, crew! The fights are a joy to watch in person, and spectacular to watch on TV. Well done!
Thanks everyone you do a great job
Excellent job making it feel like BattleBots is right in my living room! 💀💚💜🖤
Here’s looking at y’all! Thanks much!
They did a fantastic job. I never felt like they missed anything important
Yes thank them indeed. Give a special thank you to any cameraman that gets the shots of bots flying right at them without flinching. Also special thanks to the production for showing tantrums hand stuck in the wall. That could've been ignored, but my favorite part of that post season was that happening.
🗣️🎙️🔊 "THANK YOUUUU!!" (ultimate show but because of ALL that run it ⚡💨🏁)
Thanks guys & gals!!!
Can someone please tell me why they never finished it this year. I keep checking and the last episode was the round of 8 nothing after that.
Barnum and Bailey?.?. Nah *Smh* BattleBots, THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH!!! Thanks to you guys and gals. 👏🤓🤗
When does the new season start?
Hats off to them.
Thanks for all😊😊
Happy Halloween BotFans! We have a little treat for you. Please enjoy this sweet and scary BattleBots Basement Fight between Ribbot and Valkyrie! If you'd like to see more of these unaired fights, please consider becoming a BattleBots Supporter - We appreciate your help. ... See MoreSee Less
Valkyrie is such a beast, would love to see them make the top 16 at some point, it's a very solid machine
Waiting anxiously for the return of Duck! and Hal!
That was a great Halloween treat.
Any idea when the new season will start? We really miss seeing it every week---always a great show!
Wait a minute, isn't that the "Hand of Time" of Chronos? A shame Ribbot never whipped out that minibot, though at first I thought it was Warstop in a frog suit. Well, that's a start for minibot battles. We ought to have a minibot rumble.
What the hell happened? Right as I was saying "Ribbot picked the perfect defense here!" they just went kaput.
good fight the pogo stick was intresting....I miss Kenny and chris though
Well that was underwhelming.
When will the show return???
Man this seemed like an awesome matchup.
Don't worry, just wait til new years day to see all the unaired fights on youtube
So when are we getting the sci channel bonus fights?
A real treat would be coming to hulu or the N.
Hmm..That bar seems ODDLY Familiar
It took me like half the fight to work out Valkyrie was dressed up like a Fly lmao
Wait I thought the pole was Chronos’s mini bot
Valkyrie just turned Ribbot into Lieutenant Dan.
thats so weird ribot took some real beatings this season but it's a simple tab that koed them
Wow that was brutal. Poor Ribbot. #WeWantSeason5
I like Valkyrie but I feel sorry for Ribbot.
When is the Science Channel putting the show back on?
BattleBots Crew Shout outs: BotFans please put your hands together for our incredible casting team, led by the incomparable Jacqueline Topacio. These are the folks who wrangle the robots, shuffle matches and deal with all the logistics of getting robots from all around the world over to Long Beach and into the BattleBox. Thank you Team Jax! ... See MoreSee Less
Great job Team Jax! Doing a show as unique as BattleBots must present a lot of challenges that other live-event shows don't deal with. The fact that it always looks so seamless and coordinated is a further testimony to the talent and dedication of the Team. Cannot wait for next season, (can't come too soon)!
These guys were amazing! Great job Jax and crew!
Thank you for everything you guys do!💖💖
All of you amazing peoples Sending big 🐊 🐊🐊🐊kisses and a big Thankyou
Best show on TV! Thank you BattleBots!
Thanks Jax and crew! We'd have been lost those 2 weeks without you and your team 🙂 <3
With no Jax, there is no Battlebots
Just saw this now!! It has made my day and week and maybe even month! Thank you BattleBots and all the wonderful teams, builders, safety inspectors and crew for all the love! This show has become my favorite one to work on. It's much more than just a show...it's a community and a second family. I feel truly blessed to know you all and honored to be able to work on something that's truly bigger than life. I want to give a shoutout to my casting teams from all the seasons I've been on, especially to my right-hand man, Tim Gilmour, who is the hardest working and most trustworthy, loyal teammate in the world. Thank you all for sharing your inspiration with the world. And thank you to all the BB Fans who are the greatest in the world. Countdown to hopefully another seasons of Robot Fighting Time! Much love xoxo
I don’t know how Jacqueline keeps track of everything and maintains that energy and positivity, but she does. The rest of the crew has always been positive and helpful, too! Great team!
Jax is a legend <3
We love you Jax & friends!!! Truly make the BattleBots experience one of a kind.
Thank you, all! You do an amazing job 👍
Jax, you are amazing!
Love you guys, wish you would come to Indiana
Well done Jax and crew. 👏 👏 👏 👏 👏 👏 Everyone I hear from respects and credits you a great deal when talking about behind the scenes at Battlebots.
