That's one way to get through all that crappy plastic without slicing your hand open.
They're just annoyed there's no a Skorpios Hexbug *wink**wink* *nudge**nudge*
"Who saws down a playset?, Honestly!"
Can we get a JackPot-Battlebots unboxing video?
Some reassembly required.
Some people can’t get this and you guys are here destroying them, I’m disappointed, skorpios
That's not how you open it
Seems like it was struggling mid way through 🤷🏻♂️
Wow come back! I can't wait to watch on TV
I'll bet the saw cut the toys.
Nooooo, thats Sawblaze
Way to go!
“Hey Skorpios, how do you feel about Sawblaze getting a toy instead of you?”
Those minibots look like computer viruses! XD
Please tell me the toys survived
Diana what did you do!!!!!!!!!! It was mint in box!!
Eso no corta nada 🤣
LOL! Rest in peace, Hexbug! XD
Zachary Lytle! You monster!!! Jk. Hope to see your monster destroy the competition this season!
Unfortunately, Kirk Jones - beloved Horse Head Dude from season 4 - is still missing. All the updates and details can be found here: gofund.me/566f9f9a. Please read this message from Kirk's mom Kellie:
To all the Battlebots Crew, the Teams and the Fans,
Thank you so much for your caring outreach to help us find Kirk (aka Horseman, Horse head Guy). I have been sincerely overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support for Kirk.
He has so many friends in this community of whom I was unaware. You have all been very helpful in keeping him in your thoughts and prayers, and doing what you can to help us find him.
I just wanted you to know that I really appreciate everyone. We are not giving up on finding Kirk, and watching BattleBots this season will be bittersweet in our house.
Still, I hope your 2021 season is just amazing, and good luck to all the teams!
Thank you, with all my heart.
Kellie Stancliff. ... See MoreSee Less
Kirk's sister here, our sincerest appreciation to all. We can deff put a pic of him on this thread if needed. Finding kirk jones page was set up to help us find him and gives his different looks on it, ie with/without beard, long hair/short hair. Please if you see or hear from him, we are still looking for him and love him dearly.
Please come home Kirk! We're all praying for you and your family! Let us know you're OK buddy
thank you for the update, I was wondering about him recently 😔 sending positive thoughts to his family and hope he is found soon! 🌻💜
Nooooo, I saw him at all of the showings, and he was so nice to everyone. I hope he's found! 🙁
Thoughts and prayers for Kirk and his family. I can only imagine the pain and fear they are going through not knowing if he’s ok.
Thank you for the update. I hope for some good news soon.
Hopefully they find him. I get why you used this photo, to show how it relates to the show, but wouldn't it be more helpful to post a picture of him without the mask?
Team Nelly is still eagerly waiting your safe return Kirk. We love ya 💜💜
Hoping for some positive news soon! Thank you for keeping his story out there…prayers ❤️🙏 Those who want to see Kirk’s face can click on the go fund me link to read his story.
Me siento a ver las batallas con mis hijos y les encanta esperemos y hayan más batallas como los que que el más pequeño le gana al mas grande
Team Bloodsport is keeping you in our thoughts!
The crowd wont be the same without him
I don't understand how he's missing? What exactly happened?
Joseph C Schrock Damn man, after the ref passed. There’s this unfortunate situation too. Battlebots is not having a good off-season.
How did this happen?
Whens the new season starting?
Oh damn he’s like missing man that’s crazy hope he turns up
Here hoping battlebots filming will lure him out and he can be found
I hope he’s all right and turns up soon
Not gonna lie for 2.5 I thought this was some sort of way of saying he's just not in the next season... Not missing completley. I've been rewatching BATTLEBOTS since I got amnesia in 2019 & Kirk absolutely kilt me with that mask. Breaks my heart to hear 😔 Shall keep horseman in my thoughts man. Here's to hoping him & the horse head both make a safe return
Here's hoping he'll turn up soon. Also, I'm really looking forward to watching the 2021 season
He’s in my thoughts and prayers! I shared this post!
It is with heavy hearts we report that our beloved referee Michael Ayers passed away on Monday. Michael has been with BattleBots dating all the way back to the Comedy Central era. Michael was an amazing person: Viet Nam veteran, dog rescuer, standup comedian, tech executive and referee. He will be forever missed, and our love and condolences go out to his family. God Speed Michael. ... See MoreSee Less
A very sad loss, what a nice person, our thoughts are with the BattleBots production team and his family and friends.
Michael was just the nicest man. He always had kind words for us win or lose and was a great ref. Our Condolences to his family.
I’m so sorry to hear this. I went to school with Mike and he was just the nicest guy. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
He was definitely a great person and always a joy to be around
Rest in peace. My condolences to his family
Oh no, I’m so sorry for the loss and my condolences go out to his friends and family. What an incredible guy who will be sorely missed. Rest in peace, Michael.
Great job calling the knockouts, RIP and gods speed
Sad, sad news. 😔🙏🏻
He was there from the beginning. A shame he will not be there to the end. My heart goes out to every builder, staff member, and crew member part of the BB family
My condolences to family and close ones. RIP
So sad to suddenly out of nowhere hear this news. He was just on s4 doing a great job ref, then this terrible news. Hopefully we can get a tribute segment for him in s6 :,(
First, my condolences to you and the family. Secondly, Beings he is a veteran, please get ahold of his state Patriot Guard Riders as they will do flag line, escort and stay graveside until he is interned. They charge nothing and will give 110% .
I will miss my friend. He loved BattleBots and being a ref in the show. He was very much looking forward to being back this season. Movement!
I was rather concerned about Michael when he wasn't in some shows. I had a feeling he wasn't feeling too good. Rest in Peace, Referee Michael.
That has to be rough. To all, I’m sorry for your loss.
Much love and prayers to family, from being a kid to an adult watching him, he'll be missed
Deepest condolences to his family and the BB family. 🙏🏼🙏🏼 may he RIP
Very heartbreaking. Michael was a joy to watch who certainly loved his job, Battlebots will never be the same without him
I’m glad he played a part in the BattleBkts world. He will be missed. ❤️
Prayers for everyone may God be with y'all during this time of loss and wrap his arms around y'all Peace Love and Blessing to y'all
We missed him so much this past season and looked forward to his return, so this news hits even harder ☹️
Very sad… He seemed like a fair judge that enjoyed his incredible gig
My thoughts and prayers goes out to his family. Rest In Peace, Michael.
We send our condolences to his family and to his BattleBots family. 🙏🏿
Things seen at Target!!! ... See MoreSee Less
When will they be hitting your store? The Arena Max with the tank body and Tombstone looks awesome whilst Whiplash and SawBlaze are must haves.
Goodbye wallet my old friend! I need to buy hexbug toys again!
My Target doesn’t have them yet, but I’m planning to come back there this weekend to see if they do. Looking to get the rivals pack first before buying the new arena later in the year.
So the rumors are true. There are new Battlebots toys at the market. I got to get them.
Can’t seem to find them in the uk just yet. Sad times
The real question is how fast can I turn the Hammer saw into Skorpios
Found this guy at my local store a while ago. Very cool to have a piece of the legend in my home.
I bought my son the set came with witchdoctor,bronco it was awesome for a whole 2 hrs till they broke... took it back to target
I got Rotator vs. Duck at Ace Hardware.
I miss when they where full size rc ones i had biohazard and forgot other one. Had 3 lights on top you could hit and smash till your lights died so fun but that was in 2000s
I remember seeing little toy battlebots at a Electronics Boutique or similar video game store back in the 90's. They weren't radio controlled or anything, just packaged like action figures and had working features.
Would love to see these in the UK before christmas.... Son in already showing an interest 🙂. Import tax is a hit when trying to import them from the US.
That’s where we bought our bots 🤖
This explains why the pro arena has been on clearance.
Next time for sure, we should get End Game for being the current champion. Other popular picks for the near future include HyperShock (announced in 2018; never released), Rusty, Hydra, Skorpios, Lock-Jaw, and HUGE (can have the spinner work in either direction). Kraken could be their first crusher. Gigabyte could be their first shell spinner (removable parts can be the two big teeth when hit in the wrong direction, and the self-righting arm).
We want to buy in Italy! Where we can found? Pleaseee 🙏🙏. For my little guy
Does this mean we will see you compete on tv!! 😎
But do any of the sets have the Swiss army bot?
My local target has these. If someone needs a proxy, I have no problem buying and sending if you'll pay the shipping too.
Our daughters got us the mini bots with arena for Christmas.
How much are those?
anyway to get these in EU?
Do they make Hydra?

TICKETS ON SALE NOW for the BattleBots 2021 World Championship - LIVE from LAS VEGAS August 23rd - September 4th at Caesars Entertainment Studios! Don't miss out. Limited seating available.
Tickets available here! battlebots2021.eventbrite.com/?aff=Facebook ... See MoreSee Less
If I had the money and lived closer, I'd totally go. Good luck to all of the contestants!
If we get a Bite Force bounty, it can have bots like Hydra, SawBlaze, Duck, Kraken, HUGE, and even Tombstone. While Tombstone already got to be a bounty legend, and successfully defended it from Gruff, competing in the Bite Force bounty would give Ray Billings a chance for revenge on the three-time champ. Lock-Jaw was another legend that ended up winning the Beta bounty, and could also get a Bounty Hunters bracket.
Love Battle Bots! Can't wait to watch
When this coming back on TV
I was super excited to watch my first live show, was bringing family and friends........then I read that we are being forced to take a vaccination or test? WTF thats a deal breaker, the government says its over, nowhere in nevada including during the peak of covid did you have to wear a mask, why this? When did battlebots start with nonsense government control? They want people to show and they turn off half the population for no reason? If it was still an issue the government would require this nonsense.....so stupid.
I love how you have Ray doing his trademark boast and then the next clip is him getting his arse handed to him.
Is everyone (production, builders & audience) required to wear masks at the filming of the new season of battlebots? Because Nevada has put in a mandate requiring everyone wear masks in high transmission areas which include Clark County where Vegas is.
Will this be televised ? BattleBots
I'm from Morocco can't wait
They won’t be on tv
Como faço pra assistir aqui do Brasil BattleBots ?
Come to nyc area!!!

Would love to go but even though we’re vaccinated this Delta variant is just too scary. We will plan on next year, hopefully by then we are through with all of this.

"Might"!?!?!? Ugh... just tell us! Haha! I want both in it!
Man, it seems like FOREVER since it's been on TV.
Excited to see Duck 2.0
Wow, a Duck redesign! Looking forward to the new season. Bring on the robot combat!
Love the Duck Remodification
Super hyped to see my bot Duck back in action! 👊
I love watching Duck fight!
An awesome show of skill and execution! My money is on Duck for the win. So much planning, rethinking and retooling of Duck! What's not to like!
duck has no offense. get rid of that piece of trash
Will there be a meet and great for ticket holders? I’d like to meet the great builders and their machines!
It takes determination to see a dream come to pass. My life has changed since I started investing in crypto currency. I first profited $35,788.99 ROI through Alysha McDermott platform. Highly recommended!

I can't wait for it to see Tombstone's new form that they improved in their workshop. Hopefully, Ray Billings will bring in the mortician.😈
This is the only reason I want to live in the US. I'd love to be able to go as a spectator, even better if I had the money to be able to build a machine of my own.
Where in Vegas will it be filmed?
hey BattleBots, best with holding live audience shows @ Vegas
Patty Biles Heppner

Will the taping be close or on the Vegas Strip?
Is there a new season coming out soon
Tombstone & Chuck Norris together could beat Covid-19
Does that mean no kids under 12? 🥺
Same Staples Center in LV :p
Where in Las Vegas?

I was watching a previous season , is it me or did they show a lot more fights back then . Seems 4 is all they show in a hour now . To bad

Wooo cant wait to see the fights if my youtuber still airs the fights like they did last season xD
I would like to see Biteforce vs End Game at the start of the season (The undefeated vs the champion)
Yes season 6 is go!
Pity the border between Canada and USA is still closed. Good luck with the event to all.
if I need the deathshot to get in screw your robot fighting bullshit
Boo. I loved the old Lakewood hour-from-my- house location. Don't think I can stomach a drive to NV. 😞
And like that, I'm looking for flights to Vegas
After my initial comment failed, I will simply copy the entire document. Horizontal Spinners: You know Tombstone’s weakness right? It is your weakness too. You should be looking to spin up fast, and not break in the process. That should be the first thing you learn at Horizontal Academy. Vertical Spinners: It is not only the ground clearance of your bot, it is also the design of your weapon. If your weapon is like Endgame, or BiteForce, or Uppercut, you need to connect with your weapon. If it is like Jackpot, Copperhead, or Witch Doctor, you can take out the forks of your opponent. Keep that in mind. Clusterbots: There are 5 unspoken rules that need to be followed in order for a Clusterbot to work. It does work, Gemini is wrong if they believe it doesn’t, but it does require these unspoken rules to be adhered to. The 5 rules are: No Horizontal Spinners: Newton’s law” For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction” is a cluster bots worst enemy. If you enter a weapon on weapon collision, you will lose. It will suck, and you will get yeeted into the glass wall in front of the judges. Vertical Spinners do work, because they use the floor as counterforce. But pretending that Horizontals on a clusterbot doesn’t exist isn’t an unrealistic extreme. Build with defense in mind: If your robots don’t make DUCK! look weak, you're doing it wrong. Now you might be asking “ How much punishment might I need to take to be a contender?” Uppercut vs Gemini, Cobalt vs DUCK!, or Hydra vs Witch Doctor are actually realistic examples of what you need to deal with. If you build a set of cluster bots that can be thrown into the lighting grid and bounce back like it’s no big deal, then you are doing it right. No more than 2 robots: You are already at a weight disadvantage with 2 robots. 3+ are just going to cripple you. If you build 3 or more, know that you are simply screwing you over. Nothing experimental: I will just leave it at this. Experimental bots only work if they are heavy, and cluster bots only work if they are simple. Choose one, not both. Work as a team: Teamwork makes Dreamwork in this sport. If you work as a team, you exploit a cluster bot team’s greatest advantage of overwhelming numbers. Keep it as a 2 on 1, not a 1 on 1. Bonus rule: Here are some types of robots that do and don’t work. Flippers should work for the same reason as verticals. Hammers probably won’t because they rarely work with a 250 pd robot. Others are a MAYBE. Flippers: Be relentless: Your opponent can’t fight if they are being used as a pancake. If you are holding back, you play the risk of your opponent taking the advantage, and not letting you take it back. Make sure they don’t get the option. Hammers: Don’t be afraid to put a lot of force in your weapon. If you are worried that you will flip yourself over, if you can’t do that, it doesn’t hit hard enough. Forget about avoiding that, try to embrace it. If it has the force to lift a 250 pd robot off the floor, it can probably break 20 pounds of armor. Sawblades: have multiple weapons, like Jamison Go, so you can adapt on the fly. If your opponent has thick top armor, smash through it. If they don’t, slice through it. Have multiple weapons so one armor type doesn’t counter your entire kit. Flamethrowers: Make sure your weapon is concentrated enough. Your weapon needs just enough heat in one spot to cause any kind of damage. If you want to disable a drive motor, all your heat has to be right there on that motor. Also, don’t burn yourself out. Full Body Spinners: Make reliability king with your robots. Your robot will be taking upwards of 16000 pounds of force on average( yes, I have done the math.) If your robot isn’t reliable, it will kill itself, that is it.
Now that the season is officially confirmed, how many bots will there be this season? How many countries are being represented this season? Is Bounty Hunters returning and if so which 6 legends will have bounties on their heads? Is the Desperado Tournament returning?
Season 6 is now officially greenlit!
This just made my day,any info on some of the international teams? Like Minotaur,Cobalt,Orion,Deathroll,End Game,Quantum cause I really wanna see some of the epic international bots we missed especially one of my absolute favs Cobalt
If you guys are filming earlier in the year, can we hope for the season to be out earlier?
Wish I could afford the trip
