Looks like Bronco is sending Free Shipping to a special delivery.
Finally, i've been waiting for this 🔥🔥⚡
Can’t wait. And the Bronco v.s Free Shipping fight looks great! Prediction: I say that Bronco wins by Flipping Free Shipping out of the arena.
When will the new season start on TV?
Will this live twitch be recorded? I can't stay up till midnight on a weekday work night and function great the next day (east coast)
I hope there is more parts and oil on the floor this year.
What a way to end our school year!!!! Lol my whole family has been counting down!!!!
I am a bit confused by this? It is going to be on Amazon?
Oh I can’t wait to see this! Also Bronco Vs Free Shipping! Now that’s a fight to look forward to! 😀
Thrilled to read this news. I'll definitely be watching!
Jack James Collin Thomas George Thomas
heard they are getting rid of the family spotify premium pre soon 🤙🏼
I dont understand what is happening in 24 hours if the show starts June 6th
Bronco vs freeshipping
Wait, so is it in 24 hours or on the 6th? The wording is confusing.
This looks fun.
Will this season be available to purchase on Amazon Prime like last year?
Any news if the season will somehow be available in Europe? Hopefully in a way that won't earn me a wooden leg and an eyepatch?
Whats gonna be on twitch?? Surely not the 1st episode?

As we get ready for the 2019 season let’s take a moment to thank Lincoln Electric for providing 20 years of world class welding services to BattleBots and the BattleBots Builders. Our show does not happen without the support of these fine people. #weldred ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you Lincoln Electric for helping such a great show to keep running.
We really enjoy this show. A lot of fun. We even cheer! Lol.
Some swag with Lincoln & Battlebots logos would be sweet for us welders out there 👍🏻
Thanks also what robot is that
Big big Kudos guys! Gracias
Thanks for all you do 😀
Lincoln Welders are some of the best there is!
Cheers Lincoln E!

Such a amazing lineup
Some incredible builds this year! Can’t wait!
Dino Morales Chavarry ahdgsjshsjas 😍😍😍
I’m glad all of the bots are no longer straight metal. It makes it hard to keep track of who’s who.
Can’t wait for this season to start going to miss ice wave love that bot. It seems to me there are a lot more full body spinners this year which I don’t understand stand why they usually do more damage to themselves than there opponents
I see we have a lot of tombstone clones this year..
Carlos Cruz xd
For the new bot from texas.. I got my robot in the back You can say,"wait what?" Painted red and blue then White Star spinner is attached. Can nobody tell me nothin, Can't tell me nothin. Yeah i wanna take my bot To the battle bots . I wanna fight till i can't no more.
Quando as Pessoas se Unem com a Perspectiva De Algo em Grupo e Maneiro Curti
Just here to show off my Top Fan badge and look at some awesome robots.
Can't F**KING Wait!!!!! 😍😍
Juan López Caro hay llevas más
i think this season might be the strongest line up any robot combat show has ever had this season is going to be amazing
I think it’s safe to say that the 4 Horsemen are no longer the 4 Horsemen.
How can we watch the episodes?
I got bored
The bot lineup looks amazing this year! I want to see mammoth hit something at least once.
It just keeps getting BETTER!!
This is awesome! I think Twitch is a great choice, it could make discussion and interaction with one another quite interesting. Can’t wait to see what’s to come with this channel! 😀
So when can we watch? I’m ready!
Kimberly Mark Frey
WTH is Twitch?
Unless you’re now running Robot Wars, I’m truly stumped.
Why Twitch and not Facebook? Hmmm...
I’m twitching with excitement! I’m so sorry, I’ll grab my coat.
Rooting for a video game!
Classic BattleBots from Comedy Central?
I dont have a twitch
What time on the 6th???
Oh now this sounds like it’s gonna be good! 🙂
Is twitch available outside of the US?
Can I have a VIP badge on Twitch? Jk 😁😁😁
Can you just put it on YouTube? I don't watch nor want twitch
Is it something you have to pay for?
Alex Towse what
Ray Billings & Tombstone got this.
On the website and in our hearts. Can’t wait for the new season!
Great pictures of all the teams
This is just awesome. Love seeing all the teams.
Fantastic lineup of varied bots this year! Can’t wait!
Glad to see Bronco’s back; I flippin’ love Bronco.
I just wish Incould see this in the U.K.
I see we have a lot of tombstone clones this year
My favorite 6 bots 6. Warhawk 5. Cobalt 4. Skorpios 3. SOW 2. Tombstone 1. Bronco
With machines like Quantum, Cobalt, Monsoon and Nelly, looks like it could be a great year for the UK bots!
Cool. My heart is ready to watch Minotaurrrrr !!!!!
Lets see Railgun Max do well in the year of the third season of Railgun
I can’t wait to see the new Hydra in action
It’s RIBBOT fighting time!!!!
Wow! A lot of new blood. Minotaur is the bot to beat this year. Its their time. 3rd time is the Charm. The competition is going to be thick. I still Love Tombstone thou...
Check out that one called Mammoth through the link! it makes HUGE look tiny! Represent Baltimore with pride!
Awesome, cant wait!!
Nightmare my first ever love ❤ will you ever be able to self right? I don’t care
Can't wait for the season to start!
This looks like a cracking line-up. Rooting for mah boi Monsoon (as it was my favourite last season), but a lot of the new ones look good as well.
I like the cleaner look for a lot of the older contestants. I don’t know which of the newer teams are gonna do well, but I hope that Hydra is one of them so Bronco can finally have some competition.
I want to see Bronco vs. Tombstone and see tombstone get flipped OVER the top of the box!
Some of those bots should have retired and built something new 😀
I hope someone make a bot with a jackhammer and a rubber-tire armor...
Icewave is missing 🙁 Nooooo!
Just Leaked: Photo of Faruq's first intro card of the 2019 season! We're so close! Who's excited!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Faruq does a great job. Love his delivery....always entertaining!😁
I love Faruq! He does a great job👍🏻
One of the many fun parts of live sessions was Faruq and his great smile!
Really a fun show! I attended 2 filming sessions and had totally enjoyed it!! Thanks so much for good time and looking forward to watching on tv
Faruq is one of the best parts of the show! Love him!!
I love watching this show. I skip through the bullshit and just watch 4 games of 3 minutes max. Shortest thing in my list of things to watch
Loved attending the live taping! It was a great experience!
Ahhhh I can't wait to see it! Such a great thing to watch as a family. Even the youngest kids get into it and really enjoy the concept. I guess the only down side is that my daughters really want me to build a battle bot now.
I have my alarm set for that day!! Can't wait!❤ We love Faruq and his intros!! Might put together little tailgate party for the big day!
At first I didn't like his somewhat monotone voice. After getting comfortable with his role he blossomed into a fantastic voice with control and intent. A real pro. Now he is a piece of Americana Battlebots lure. Big love and Respect Faruq! You are a real pro.
He does a great job at delivering corny intros.
Faruq The Wordsmith. Always down to verbally clown. The illest and the chillest.
So ready to watch it again. The destruction just can't wait.
I'm not sure if Faruq participated in any meet and greets but that would've been so RAD to meet him!❤
At first I was like “Check me out, I’m CSI, zoom in, enhance, zoom in, now clean it up, look at me I’m so clever.” Then, it hit me.
Are we seriously getting Rick rolled on the fight card? Well done people well done.
Faruq does a great job. I just wish he would do a freestyle rap summing up a season. I bet he would win a battle against raper charli 2na.
Announcing “He’ll make everyone stand on their feet, He’ll make BattleBots feel complete, He’s so handsome he’ll make your wife wanna cheat. It’s FARUUUUUUUQ!”
I can hear the tragic puns now...
Excited! but I dvr it and skip his long drawn out intros. Sorry no disrespect meant.
"The second rule of Robot Club is you do *not* talk about Robot Cl... Wait...i've got that wrong." <checks notes> "The second rule is 'no smoking'"
It's robot fighting time
Love them but they are not bots, they are RC controls.
Hell yeah! Everybody zooming in into the picture and you can actually read it with his voice in your head 😂💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
I so hope it becomes Ladies and Gentlebots!
Here is the Science Channel Promo for BattleBots 2019. What do you all think? Discovery's promo should be coming out soon.
Remember: BattleBots 2019 will premiere on Discovery on June 7th, and Science Channel on June 12th ... See MoreSee Less
Needs more 🤖 🔥 💥 but it’s good!
Finally. I love Battlebots
I love it! Its like going into the Stranger Things arcade meets Bandersnatch vibe. It’s including the millennial market...I likey. Expanding the demographic is great.
Huh? Science AND discovery promo? Maybe the discovery one will have actual footage of the fights, like last year
I love the show and that promo doesn't do it justice. Especially compared to what they had last year. Last year's ads were awesome
Hoping this gets put on Netflix or hulu.
Actual fights would’ve been great! You would definitely spark more interest among your non-viewers.
Not very explanatory as to what the show is, is it. They look more like a mash of visual effects used to to bridge the action and talking sections. If that was to promote the sport, hype my show and hook in new interest, I'd be pretty angry if I had to pay for that.
Dominic Di Battista
Meh. Not horrible, but certainly not going to bring in new viewers.
It's OK. Transition is old school robot wars, music and effects reminds of Portal. But it's only really for people who already know what the show is due to no show footage.
I like it. Reminds me of the OG BattleBots intro.
It is ok, but like someone else said maybe could have used old footage to be more explanatory.
Which channel shows it first, and does one channel's version get more content? Need to know what to dvr...
Looks like the intro from the Classic series of Robot Wars
Is this still the same hour as last year?
Which channel shows the most fights per episode?
Could use some footage from past fights.
It’s not my favorite. You have years of footage to go off of and the choice is made to use some quick CG stuff? Where’s the drama? The action?

Thanks Dick we are taking note.
