Is this an exclusive deal or could we potentially see battlebots hot wheels to go beside my monster truck collection?
I just want BattleBots back, even if it means (possibly) having no fans there. Without fans, Faruq wouldn't be able to interact with the crowd during his intros. If fans are allowed, there could at least be a 25% capacity. I'm just hoping the pandemic doesn't last all year.
How do I order for one
I already have one!

Just an FYI when it's carrying the mower around that's not it's top speed, it maxes out about 14mph that's about 3-4mph it's for control
now that's a top grass performance🧐😮class I mean top class performance
A bit lacking in the "smash" department. Only seeing that being somewhat effective against a couple bots. It clamps too slow, limited in size to what it can clamp, once clamped it's "smash" amounts to gently placing the other bot on it's back.
Now they have to practice on something up too 300lbs kus they ain't gonna lift most bots otherwise 😜
I'm not seeing this making it to the final rounds. While is grabbing ... slooooowly I might add.... it will be torn to pieces by a spinner or drum bot. WAY TOO SLOW
This is cool as hell! Great work! The design is honestly brilliant, and this looks like a super fun control bot!
'Lacks speed'. On a test video. On a warehouse floor unconstrained by an arena... It's hardly going to be running at full tilt in those circumstances is it? I know most of you guys commenting aren't builders, but c'mon- think it through. Most of you must be fans, with some idea about how these machines are developed. Wait for the show. If I know Craig- and I do- it'll be pretty damn quick. Also, while it's tough to predict exactly what'll happen when a new machine takes a big hit, this thing is very small and is bound to be very heavily armoured.
That's it? If the lawn mower was running this wouldn't work.
Pretty cool, but aside from picking up your opponent and slowly dropping them outside the box I can't see how this would win. I do like that it's not a spinner though.
Love the design. Cant wait to watch you,,,,practice practice practice driving. So many matches are lost to inferior driving skills. If you have to look at your gimbles, switches .etc. your at a disadvantage.
LMAO! Elimination in the first round! Try any of that with Tombstone or Minotaur🤣🤣🤣
"ItS wAy ToO sLoW" "ItS WoRthLesS" "iT WiLl NeVeR wIn" bruh....bro....bruv....guys....peeps....homies It's a test video. You dont just test full power willy nilly. Please calm down and keep your theoretical knowledge to yourself. 250lb robot worth several grand. Probably worth more than half the shitboxes yall drive.
Now I know who to call if any unruly lawnmowers come on my property! 😂. Can’t wait to see it in action against another bot!
Got to say, having retractable clamping arms inside the lifting scoop frames is a great idea!
Horizontal spinner will eat those grapplers for breakfast.
Good but seems a bit slow work faster on grip and grab and maybe add a saw in middle incase slam get cut it. Ut good in all
Robot suplex! Can't wait to see how this would work out against another bot. 😁
Love this one great design.
I would love to watch videos of the bots trashing everyday objects.
love all these people who have never built a robot going "oh it's to slow" one this robot is testing not at full power two it's much faster that in the video because there just testing bloody hell so tired of these people complaining and know nothing about building robots
Doesn’t every bot have a self righting mechanism these days? Needs some offence not a flip they can recover from
Well if it goes to a decision we know they have the vote of at least one judge.
Trying to be OG BiteForce or fill the void left by the absence of Overhaul?
You need an offensive weapon. That’s a defensive weapon. Not bad for containing but you need to do something once you have them.
Pretty cool but will need more than that if it enters the BattleBot arena.

Gather round BotFans for another quacktastic epsidoe of HOW TO BUILD A DUCK! This week it's all about the chassis assembly.
Thanks to Team Black and Blue and Protolabs for the video. ... See MoreSee Less
duck doesn't need a damaging weapon to do so would sacrifice duck main strength that is's a brick
Interesting call on the magnesium. My father worked for a computer company called GRiD back in 80's, and they were known for making some of the first truly portable, bleeding edge computers. Part of that was using a magnesium alloy case. Incredibly rugged and light weight.
I love Hal. He is a fighter! He deserves a winning season. If a weapon was added, he'd kill everyone. Bite Force, Tombstone, Witch Doctor...gonna be hard to acquire the Giant Nut with those 3 still in the mix. Oh and that Brazilian bot. Shit! Minotaur could take it this years? Good luck to All, especially Tombstone. I need my Friday pizza, beer and Battlebots buddies again! Come on Rona....get the fuck out!
My every morning visitors.
Very cool to watch!
No offense, wins by default.
Minotaur All the way
Duck is nearly indestructible, however it is sorely lacking an effective offensive weapon.
Can’t wait to see this robot get destroyed agin and loose again that’s the best part of this robot 😂😈😏😛👍
Salivating waiting for the return of the Quack Attack! Gotta heart the changes coming with Duck! 3.0 and Hal. Dreaming of a Giant Nut!
This is too beautiful

Happy birthday! We’re watching every rerun we can find...and getting such a kick out of you and Chris’s play-by-play announcing. I’d go so far as to say that you’re helping us to stay relatively sane and laughing through all of this pandemic weirdness. We hope you have a great day!
Would he like a box of our chocolate delights for his birthday?

BotFans. The Production team is working to make BattleBots Season 5 happen as soon as safe and possible. Plans are in the works and we’ll bring everyone up to speed soonest. ... See MoreSee Less
Stay safe (the builders, not the bots...) 😉
Yeah bring it on great entertainment.
So no audience? Does that mean we can skip the intros and focus more on interviewing the builders and details about the bots in the pits. I’d be all for that! But I’ll watch the crap out of a new season any way you serve it up👌
Please stay safe. We the fans want all teams and their families to make the trip and continue to do so many years to come. We can wait a few more months to see all the glory that is season 5!
Was watching some replays of last seasons fights on TSN canada the other day and they were advertising NEW SEASON coming soon. Looking forward to it
You know it's serious when they're using all their black ink for the printout of the presentation
Start Battlebots already, wear facemasks, observe 1-meter distancing, apply alcohol, wash hands with soap and water, thermal scanners, other coronavirus precautions. 😎
honestly with sports struggling to adjust, seems like robot combat could jump in and grab some new fans.
It needs to be soon......... My son has asked me every single day for the last year lololol we are to excited.
PLEASE NOT IN CA!!!! Just move it. There are plenty of states that will provide a venue and fans. The fans will come too, because they have $$ to spend and nothing else to go to. Hell do it outside under a roof!
Looking forward to it!
Nothing but love for this group ❤️
Stay safe and let the battle begin.
Hopefully this summer, the season will finally happen. With everything starting to re-open, it's possible BattleBots will have either a limited, or no live audience. I think the first main event can be Bite Force vs. Hydra.
Will the Supporters Group get an advance heads up, the way they had access to tickets a few days ahead of the general public? Not complaining if they don't, any word on S5 will be met with joyous celebration. Just curious. 🙂
dear battlebots, move in out of CA PLEASE! There are other states that will allow the fans very soon.
First thought: OMG SO MUCH INK
I need my robot fightin time!
I’ll be waiting for the updates. I love BattleBots!
get it done as soon as possible i miss watching my BATTLEBOTS
What’s this, now?!
looking forward to seeing robots reduced to scrap as soon as a game plan is in place
Georgia is open, bring BB to the east coast!
There could be a robotic audience...
Cant wait for the season 🙂 biteforce needs to go for that threepeat
Something the television production misses... the sound of the weapons powering up.
First I was intrigued, now I am hyped. Is this the kind of bot that can beat Bite Force?
Seems like it will take too long to power that blade up. One solid whack from a strong contender is on the horizon.
Hmmmm twin gyro effect. Imagining more battery capacity was required at the cost of????? Maybe armor???
Why do I want a 1v1v1 brawl between Fusion, Bite Force, and Tombstone? Idk but it would be AWESOME!
It will bounce around like a beyblade in the first hit
Two questions 1. When is the Battlebox going to get some upgrades? 2. When are we going to see a larger class of Bot?
Dayum! That looks and sounds terrifying. That thing is going go make contact with an opponent one time, and send itself reeling across the box lol
More microphones in the arena next season please! Wow.
That will drain the battery very fast 😬
Will a hit on a wedge give it the "Tombstone June Bug" affect, I love it. Cant wait to watch the new competitors.
Well, I guess some more lights are getting broken in the Battlebox this season 🤣
Is this coming back ?
Omg i would really like to that bot in action, tombstone's got some major competition!!
Well that could be a game.changer.
I want to see this thing fight Minotaur just to see how loud the two of them together would be.
I just hope it can move. Falcon had fierce weapons as well, but it could barely move.
Was never a fan of the double weapon. I think it's best to have one solid blade. That's going to be rough on the battery (I used to compete in bot fighting.)
Holy shhhhhhhh..... Can't wait to see that Bot in Action😁🤟🤟
I hope it can hold onto that blade for the duration of the fight
If Tombstone and Minotaur had a baby...
Tombstone on Steroids!
I swear that thing is going to take off in a sec 😂
dang that thing can break the sound barrier
I want to see this in action!
While we’re all quarantined at home the Bot Builders have created a special reading of “B is for BattleBots”: the fantastic book by Andrea from team Witch Doctor.
Special thanks to Zach and Diana from team Skorpios for organizing.

I have no problem believing that Will Bales talks to HyperShock like it's a person.
I love watching the builders again again, its my favorite game show..i can't wait to have ticket into the live show, i will be glad..
Awesome!! My kids loved seeing all of the builders. 😊😊
You all are FANTASTIC! This was a riot! How fun!
Welcome Thombstone with new building
Can’t wait till we can see this again.
I really enjoy that thanks Builders
My son loved that! Thank you!!
Y’all are the best!
Does witch doctor run this group. That's all I see..there are others
Whenever I order from the BB store, the shipping cost is over $11. Is there a way to get the book with lower shipping?
Very fun and interesting to watch. Well done!
Soooooooo looking forward to seeing the new Duck! in action.
Duck...is an example of how a bot doesn't look intimidating, but the competition knows better! Go Duck!
im ashamed to be canadien..Red Devil..hahaha!..canada's shame..#SORRYEH..canada team needs to do way better..a saw?..pathetic...once again..SORRY..lol.
It’s not easy winning a game of attrition when the other bot won’t die. Go Duck!
One of the most beautifully engineered BattleBots ever.
Duck have to try something new BECAUSE we have biteforce tombstone and yati
Great little bot I just like seeing damage lol

101 on how to build a bomb proof robot with a little OCD mixed in.
Team Immersion and their stealth flipper Abrasion are signed up for BattleBots 2020. Will this be the year of the UK flippers? ... See MoreSee Less
I've seen this machine in action when I was at my last event. It's a great GREAT robot and the team are sound people.
The brits do love their flippers! I have a feeling this one will do well.
I hope to see at least one OotA by a Front-Hinge Flipper - Firestorm needs to have another machine join it in that group.
Was that fun to watch!
Yes! I approve of this. 😀
Reminds me of a working functional p1. But are we gonna have another year of the battle of the flippers? Without my favorite returning, my attention goes to Orion
Bring back the 3 weight classes!
is that bite force ??? www.facebook.com/robofight2018/videos/162654234860795/
Here's hoping. Would be ace to see a British team take the trophy!
Speaking of UK flippers, hopefully Eruption competes next season.
That battlebox does not look safe for spectators or cameramen.
Glad to see BB getting global attention! This is better than the Roman Colliseum!
you would think all bots would be given the ability to flip right back up when flipped over..all bots have flipped over..so..lol..
Might be a winner
The promo looks soo post-apocalyptic and mean. Nice.
Very curious to see how the UK flippers do this year
I wasn’t sure what was going on at first. The Battlebox looked like a dive bar in Jersey after closing time. 😂
Depends on if we even get a season this year.
So when's the next season?
Glad to see more flippers.
Rumble featuring Brit flippers, Hydra & (if entered) Bronco perchance? 😏😉
Now we just need Eruption to enter! OOTAs for dayz!
Their first fight. Should be against duck
Maybe Next Year In 2021 YES or NO!!!
From our friends at Robot Wars Shuntposting ... See MoreSee Less
MONSOON VS RED DEVIL..haha..now that was a battle..DESTRUCTION!!..GO CANADA GO!...lol
I would love to see the house robots of robot wars placed in a few battlebots exhibition matches!
the box is locked... the lights are on its robot fighting time.
IM STILL waiting for a real destroyer Bot..i want a BOt that will keep on destroying even when its victim is immobile ..DESTROY!..DESTROY! 🙂
Yes & hope ya'll are able to get back to it SOON!
Battle bots I can't wait!!!!
the battle of robots fascinates me🛰🎮🕹
I'd like to have both
So, you want to hug nuts?
I still dont have that emoji on this app lmao
No what I really want is a thumbs down
Still looking for those elusive #carereaccs
