Start filming if others can why not just test regularly and stay on set so no way of passing around
Ummm nope.... I wish they would at least run re-runs of battlebots. Other sports are going now why hasn't battlebots returned? You can't tell me this isn't something that can't be done with "social distancing". Bring on the new season of Battlebots already! 🙂
The season can be filmed this October, and start airing in early November.
I'm willing to wait for Battlebots to tell us when they can resume. We are spectators and not competitors or engineers and professionals that put this all together. Settledown BB fans! We all want Robot Kaos but these times are unpresidented and everybody's safety is at hand. God Bless Battlebots! We will overcome.
I won’t be here. But you should take liam on Saturday. That will be nice.
The only event I care about is the start of Season 5.
What I want is to see battles
Why can Battlebots not film without an audience? Just keep the teams apart.

Happy Battle Birthday! 🤖 🧁
Best emcee of robot combat ever, Mark beiro comes up a close second, with all do respect. Happy belated birthday from me and my girlfriend and can't hear the words" it's robot fighting time" again, music to my ears. It's not BattleBots without him, no offense to Kenny and Chris, also great commentators, but faruq just adds that unique sense of wisdom and humor to something so majestic and destructive.
And in the center of the arena, a man who is not very meaana, Stands a man so awesome that he makes Chris Rose look like poison oak and Kenny Florian fight like a silly little joke..... Itssss... FARUQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQ HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
It's candle bowing tome!
Happy birthday! I spend every morning hearing your voice announcing from my sons battlebots arena! He and I battle every morning before he heads to preschool 🙂
Its Birthday Celebration Time!
Blew our whole families minds when we saw him on Season 1 of Master Chef! 😂
I love this guy. He makes battlebots so good
Happy birthday. I want him too do my Eulogy when i die.

DUCK! and ROTATOЯ UNBOXING!!! ... See MoreSee Less
My boys have had those for weeks now.
The Quack Attack will Lead the Pack!
Saw this at Target today. Let's just say, my son's birthday is Nov. 5. Christmas is not far behind. He's likely to unwrap this one way or the other. Also likely he'll be getting the Bite Force - Aptyx Designs - Battlebots Team/Blacksmith - Battlebot set, too. He's already got a bunch of other Battlebots stuff coming for Christmas. Thank you so much to Hexbug, Target and Battlebots for partnering to make all this stuff available in store for those of us fans who don't want to have to shop online
But have you ever tried to rotate a duck?
DUCK! & ROTATOЯ @hexbug remote control toys in stores now! ... See MoreSee Less
When will they be on Amazon or the battlebots store? Hexbug don’t ship to the UK.
Got a set for my son yesterday. Was very pleasantly surprised to find them.
The next rival pack should be Skorpios v Rotator! 😂 👀😅
Sigh.....God I miss the real thing.
Can we put masks on the Bots? And use physical distancing between teams. Or maybe follow the NBA, use the Disney bubble to have the 2020 season.
I so miss my Biteforce this year
Super fun but imo to expensive
Amazing! They’re wearing team uniforms! 🤩🤩
On the shelves at Target. The remotes in these sets have two “weapon” buttons compared to one in the old. This lets you control Duck’s lifter both up and down. My 3yo discovered this...
It’s sold out!!!! When will they get more in?
The Quack Attack will Lead the Pack!
I want Bzttlebots on TV back!!!! Do some highlight shows or something....great show for the whole family! Dick of gloom and doom
Is Battlebots back???
Tim Burdon we can test this out before Harry is old enough?
Trevor Toney new bots for the boy

THE NEW DUCK! AND ROTATOЯ REMOTE CONTROL HEXBUG TOYS ARE OUT! Sold together or separately, online or retail, buy now!
What remote control BattleBots HEXBUG toys would you like to see in the future? ... See MoreSee Less
Depends, how big of a box do you have?
Free Shipping, Whiplash, Kraken, Mammoth
These Battlebots toys are probably the best things ever! I still need to get a few more but I'm always excited to see what comes next
To the Cobalt fans: If you haven't already, check out his other bot in action Carbide on Robot Wars 🇬🇧 It's a beast of a machine youtu.be/bZSAOPCctk4
Dude, that's so cool. I got the arena, Tombstone, and Minotaur. They should make Valkyrie, Hypershock, Lockjaw, Son of Whyachi, Warhead, and HUGE.
Got them for the kids' collections. They added a button to each controller (Duck needs one button to raise the blade, one to lower it; the weapon button is redundant on all other bots so far, but could add new options with future releases!) Duck is REALLY fast. In the arena, it is almost uncontrollably fast! Rather than taking off 3 pieces of armor, Duck loses the top armor and the back wheels (attached with magnets). If one comes off Duck is... well... a sitting duck. Rotator is tricky to turn on between the blades and wheels. We noticed an issue, though... there is a peg above (and below) each disc that acts as a 3rd wheel. On ours, Rotator cannot drive right side up... only upside down... for some reason, one peg is longer than the other, and it is molded into the design. If you cut the long one to the same height and sand the peg smooth it works great in both modes. Rotator is a VERY effective Bot with this hiccup fixed. As a side note, until we got this pack, Bronco basically owned the arena. Using clips rather than magnets made it almost impossible to take off the three armor pieces. Duck can spin and "axe" those wedges off, or high-center Bronco to immobilize it. Rotator? Well, Rotator can chop Bronco apart... it has become the great equalizer of our collection.
What toys would I want to see? #pushstrikesback
Valkyrie vs Quantum!!!
SawBlaze, Whiplash, HUGE, and Death Rill are my picks
Will this set be in Target? I got another set just the other day for my son for Christmas. That would make for a great addition to what I already got him.
I would like to see HUUUUUGE!! That would be great!!
My son would like Nightmare vs Yeti.
HUGE. Best design 2018.
Sarebbe bello se uscissero moonson, Hypershock, Cobalt e Petunia Hello from Italy!
Whiplash vs Deathroll says my son Ben.
Hexbug please do Hypershock and Nelly the Ellybot next.
When is warhead joining hexbug?
I wish the arena was a little bigger. Regardless, im PUMPED for more bots!!!
Really pleased I managed to correctly predict two of the Hexbugs we got this year AND the way the armour falls off of Duck! My top 5 picks going forward would be: 1. Hypershock - fan favourites and long overdue a toy 2. Cobalt - Most Destructive 2019 3. Quantum - Best Designed 2019 4. Monsoon - Founders Award 2018 5. Death Roll - Top 4 in the 2019 season All I think have claims to a toy
Hypershock. I think they're owed one after the 2016 one got teased. Plus the newer version just looks so cool.
How long until the BattleBots store has them? As for which bot should get a toy, I think Deathroll should get one.
I love these I had em all bronco by far is the best but my only thing is imo they cost just to much
Ugh, already sold out!! Hoping they get restocked soon!
Gather round BotFans for another installment of How to build a DUCK!. In this episode @BlackandBlueRobotics shows us DUCK!'s brand new liftting beak! This video brought to you by Protolabs ... See MoreSee Less
Is this the year the nearly indestructible Duck becomes a true blue damage dealing bot? 🤔
From being a tough wedge with the bare minimum traits to comply with the active weapon rule, Duck has become more in-line with the better lifters like Gruff thanks to its new 2020 design. But I only discovered that it is not just a lifter, but now also a biter, a grabber, a few days back. Suddenly, Duck became a bit more interesting, for the beak allows more aggressive moves & options, & more personality (& the bot already had a lot of quacking personality back then, as shown when it counted Bombshell out & proceeded to breakdance soon afterwards). Now, it is in-line with the likes of SlamMow! & Overhaul.
Duck looks good I wonder what’s the max lifting power on the lifter
Cannot wait till i Hear “ It’s Robot Fighting Time”
That Lifter reminds me of a Large Beak we can put food in it. 😂
I look forward to hearing the quack. 🙂
Duck! 3.0 and Hal are forces to be reckoned with!
Battlebots when will be returning to tv
Is that bill for mock-up and testing or is that thin piece of metal what Duck will sport in battle? Cause a hardcore spinner will peal that bill right off. Still I really like the overall design a lot more than the last jump rope lifter.

Any idea of scale?
Qasim Nawab check the assembly.
Brittany check out ducks new lifter
Overhaul getting that daily workout in 🏋🏼♀️ ... See MoreSee Less
I'm surprised that people leave the robot wheels exposed in a carnage sport
I don't think they have realized they won't have time to lift something That robot is good but not for this game
That won't do any good against tombstone!
I can’t wait for the election to be over so we can watch live again...
Overhaul has the same problem as all of the grapple bots. The speed at which it clamps down. It's SLOW. You need to increase the speed that the jaw clamps down.
I love watching Battlebots. I guess that is on the back burner this year....too bad...
Impressive. However, since it's a flipper bot what matters most is the speed of that flip. Hydra and Bronco as examples
Meh, grabbing and holding in a league of carnage.
In off season got a decent shop bot
It’s looking much improved
What an uplifting video 😎
When will you be back airing new episodes
Damn that thing is loud
When is next season going to start?
Geeze, oh man!
Belen Avila Play: Survivor - Eye Of The Tiger

Saludos y abrazos desde Querétaro México, soy la Mexicana más fan de The BattleBots... vuelvan o pidan a la televisora discovery turbo que transmita repeticiones por favor !
After the promise of 50hrs in 2h doses - Baited breath is an understatement!
Can't wait till we can see BattleBots again!!
Who has the rights to the original seasons from the 90s? Let's stream those or something. I looooved those origanls
Saludos battlebots, regresen pronto
When is the new season?
Will there be a new season this year?????
BattleBots is a great positive distraction, thank you fans for your support of our sport!
Thank you! My nine year old son has such an ambitious dream to become a battlebot creator one day. His only real interest for the last two years has been battlebots. He has also made more than a hundred of them out of Legos. We really hope to see new episodes if possible. Thank you for all you do! 🙂
The Battle Box needs some improvements. It has been the same since this has started.
From NIGERIA 🇳🇬♥️
Waiting for the unveiling of Duck! 3.0. The Quack Attack Leads the Pack!
When will season 5 be back ?
awww so wholesome
Love BattleBots, but I wish there was a way to stream it without having to sign in to a cable service
We want Season 5! 😀 😀 😀
Ok so my daughter and I r wondering why they can't have BattleBots without fans?!? I mean the major sports r doing it
Why aren’t we seeing any re-airings of previous seasons to make up for the lack of a new one?
That means Ziggo and Biohazard are gonna compete in season 5?
When is season 5 must be soon
Excited to see what improvements have been made! My robotics team once got to compete against a team (they graduated a few years back) that now competes in battle bots!
We have been watching pro wrestling with out an audience. Why not Battlebots. Please give us something good to watch.
Please when will you be back, soon I hope.
A very bright light and spirit. Thank you Grant for entertaining and educating us in science and joy.
RIP Grant. You will be missed.
Man this is hard I watched him wayyy back in bb when I recorded it on vhs days fly high brother
What a nice tribute that showcases his personality and his boyish enthusiasm. I think he felt he had the best job in the world and it showed. One of my favorite moments is his reaction when he gets touched by fish while swimming. 🙂
My boys loved you in myth buster and battle boys. We’ll miss you
What a beautiful tribute. I don't know why but Grant's death has hit me harder than any other celebrity death. May he rest in peace.
Thank you. . . . 💕💜💕
Going to mis that guy
Joel McDonell im crying abit
Obaid Abid 😥
Qué gran pérdida. Dios consuele a su familia.
A tragic loss, Grant was an inspirational man and led and incredible life, he will be missed.
RIP Grant. Thanks for the show and everything, we will miss you.
I am trying not to cry. Thank you for everything Grant.
WE SALUTE YOU GRANT IMAHARA..!!!!! One of MY HEROs..!!
Now he is competing with Deadblow in the celestial league of battlebots.
He was beloved by us viewers. Take care and god's speed
Very nicely done video. He will be missed.
que a energia e inteligência dele fique de exemplo para a nova geração !
Genius gone too soon.
He was awesome
Today is a sad day in our community. We are completely devastated to report that Grant Imahara has passed away. Grant was one of the brightest and most creative individuals we have ever known. He was a singular talent, an inspiration to all, a multiple Giant Nut winner, a Judge for BattleBots, a Mythbuster, and a great friend to the sport of robot fighting. Our hearts go out to his family. We love you Grant. Rest in peace.
Please share a fond memory of Grant in the comments. ... See MoreSee Less
Very sad news but these comments really show what an amazing person he was. He touched a lot of peoples lives. RIP Grant😔
funny story about Grant: I originally watched him on MythBusters like many other people and one day I was watching BattleBots and he was just there wrecking peoples bots. It blew my child mind seeing him on the show. He will always be an inspiration for me.
So sad...had the chance to meet him when he presented at a conference I was at years back... such a great person and talented engineer ... 😢
Very sad news. Great guy and my heart goes out to his family.
He was always fun & informative to watch on BB & MB. This is a great loss to the community.
Not only was Grant my absolute favorite person in Mythbusters growing up, I want to share our most recent memory as fans. The smile on his face when he was finished creating his Baby Yoda just mere months ago was one of the most imaginative and happy moments I have seen for Grant. How much us fans miss him already. Thank you for sharing these amazing pictures, BattleBots.❤️💔❤️
He entertained and will continue to be apart of my household and familys entertainment. Huge loss for the world.
When I came down to work the 3rd ever Battle bots in May of 2001, Grant was one of the first 'veterans' to welcome me and my then wife into the craziness. One day I was wandering the pits and he said "Hey Escher! Can you hold a few screws for me?" I came over and helped him work on Dead Blow and we talked for about an hour or so... he loved that I was a math teacher and some of the math jokes he shared were just... LOL! I think my favorite was "Well, you know what they say, Don't drink and derive." I'd heard that one before, but it didn't matter... I truly regret that I wasn't able to attend any of the 'new' BB seasons so I could have seen him and all the rest of my BB friends. I'll miss ya Grant.
Man..... He was so much fun to watch as a "supporting" Mythbuster.
Man this is just heartbreaking to hear. He was so much fun to watch on Mythbusters. Even Deadblow got to make an appearance in an episode. I hope when the season tapes and airs there is a nice memoriam episode to him. Maybe invite the Mythbusters to make an appearance and host the episode. If Deadblow is still around maybe hav it make an appearance with its Middleweight Rumble Giant Nut.
I am heartbroken over the news. He was one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met.
I’ll never forget the lengths to which Grant would go to help people. There were multiple occasions he let us borrow Eteks from the myth busters shop to use in Last Rites so that we could keep competing. He would literally drive to the shop and bring us back a weapon motor so we could continue in the tournament. That was the kind of person Grant was... selfless to core and a genuine good person.
I couldn't believe it when I saw it this morning. It was a pleasure to meet Grant Imahara at Robogames, BattleBots and Yuri's Night. Super cool guy, amazing engineer, maker, robot enthusiast, so nice to me and my team.
One of the formative shows of tween-aged me was Battlebots, then Mythbusters. I'm so completely done with 2020. All of my geekery and love to Grant's family.
Grant was one of those people that you felt like you knew them because of how genuine and real he always was.
The last time I saw Grant was last year, when I ran into him at work. We chatted briefly about BattleBots and I showed him my hard hat with tons of old team stickers. He then suggested I might want to move my car. He was planning to blow something up and was concerned my car might be in the fallout zone. Sweet guy and insanely smart. What a loss.
Man this hurts I use record bb back in day on my vhs 😢 fly high brother
I met him... He was an AMAZING!.. He gave me a book about his made the robot bot. I saw his robot at Mythbusters room. We love you Grant.
How absolute genuineness was apparent even on camera. I usually don't get upset about celebrities, but this one... This one hurts.
The very first robot fight I ever saw was Grant's robot Deadblow pummeling Pressure Drop when i was 12 and I've been hooked ever since.
This is kind of random but in 2008 I was a foreign exchange student in South Korea. My friend and I went to an anime convention but we had no costumes so we bought plain white tee shirts and wrote our favorite Asian actors on them. He had Bruce Lee and I had Grant Imahara. It was the best day trying to tell people who he was and about how his battlebot was so good he got banned.
Loved him on Mythbusters...RIP
I'm just sad right now, speechless otherwise...
I wish I had gotten the chance to meet him.
