Ooh, yes! Very happy to see Warhead finally got a toy. Wonder if we'll see a Hexbug version as well some time?
Pls bring it to brazil!!!
Oh my god YES.
I know what Santa's bringing my son for Christmas 😀
Sweet ! Warhead !
We want them all! They are so cool. #iwannabeyourendgame #bigreputation #warhead #wemisswarhead
Can we get a hexbug warhead with their dinosaur head?
But will they be in the UK??
hexbug Warhead oh yeah!
I want tombstones
I can’t believe on BiteForce of this set gets to be remote controlled
I still can't find them anywhere! Don't want to order online.
Warhead is my favourite i wounder why there not competing?
Just take all my money hexbug!!!!
Amanda L. McLellan :O

Shelby Chanel Watchorn
Wow. That’s awesome.
Thanks for a great show last night!!!
That bar spinner though!
Mire rapido y dije Tomas Alejandro sos vos? Jajaja
Battle B'loons activate!
Now that’s what I call a rubbar spinner.
Be pretty tough to "pop" that bot I bet.
Hahahahaha, it’s the most frightening balloon animal ever!
Congrats Richie Heard

That is awesome. That would make a great Christmas gift for my son.
Awesome! I love Battle Bots toys especially Hexbug! My kids want them ALL and it’s hard to object!
The toys from this run of the show have been so good!
The toys that come from these shows have always been really high quality and it’s great to see Hexbug continuing to raise the bar there 🙂
Oh wow! that's like a what, 1/4 scale model? Remote controlled, working weapon, and a battlebot? Heck yes I'll take one! Well...specifically I'll wait for one of my favorite bots to get this treatment, but this is still cool!
I love it
Looks so cool. Are they available in Australia?
Love it! Do you have to put it together though?
Omg my son has the other boys they made he will love this.
That is amazing!
How much does it weigh? I want to run it as a beeteweight!
It's about dang time!
Top fan here... Love those Kentucky Wildcats blue and white color scheme
Tombstone will turn that into tuna fish salad
Like a "mini me" from Ostin Powers film )))
Cara q show!!
Hey BATTLEBOTS. YouTube TV just added the Discovery Channel..!!!! Except BATTLEBOTS is not streaming on it? What gives..???
I need this!!
Omg going to get this
Hurry up...there’s nothing good to watch...
OMG my son is going to be so excited!!!!
That made by WPI students in Worcester? Best college ever... In a different life I would have gone there... But instead I slept through 1/2 of high school and went to community college!
Needs to be on TV faster!! arg!
Take my money now!
Look who came to visit... ... See MoreSee Less
This is all kinds of brilliant on so many different levels. I have to add i seriously love that the good sir still has the good Sirs helmet in his possession.
SOW could take sir killalot.
another wedge robot?
Whalerock I beg of you get in contact with Mentorn, help find Robot Wars a new home anywhere and then let this crossover between two great shows finally happen properly! As long as both parties are up for it (god i sound like a politician) #BringBackRobotWars
"Infinity War is the most ambitious cross over..." I, as a man of culture, show this picture...
Is there some crossover coming??? Robot wars v battlebots??
I want to learn how to make a robot that like in the competition can anyone help me
I'll be honest, I scared myself...
What's the guys name with the curly hair?
I miss Ziggo 😞
loud shoes, adam s.
One thing Robot Wars does very well is a recap of the post-battle damage and what needs to be done to get a bot fighting again. I'd like to see more of that on Battlebots!
When do the battles come to my TV?
Now this is the crossover we all need but don’t deserve ❤
Are they teasing us about something? 😆🤔
One of my favorite bands of all time
Ribbot vs the house robots
Does it burn Trey and Greg if they touch it?
So that's why Robot Wars got cancelled, Killalot was shot down so his head to be mounted at the top of the battlebox! Next year you'll see all the house robot's heads mounted and the headless Shunt will have to avenge them!
House robots makes it cheezy, good riddance
This is about all we can show you from this insane fight. Don’t miss BattleBots when it returns to @discovery and @sciencechannel in June ... See MoreSee Less
My husband and son were there twice this week and they had the time of their lives! It was amazing, there were tons of activities to keep everyone entertained in between matches and they got a sign autographed (and angry-eyed!) by the Huge team! 😁
So much fun taking our 17 yo son to see taping of his favorite show! July cannot get here soon enough to watch all the bouts! BB did a great job from initial notice of tics, online purchase to the day of the event - a new family annual trip!
On our way there - hoping for some awesome fights Saturday through Monday!!!!! Really hoping Ribbot is still in the fight!!!!!🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸
Not there at filming so this is a true guess... is this the self immolating Free Shipping? The black diuble-wedglelets look like it.
Just came home from the early sessions tues and Wed. We had the BEST time! Can't wait for next year! We'll definitely be back for more❤
That edge on the left hand side, coupled with the flames....I'm thinking Blacksmith. Not sure who's getting burned, though
Free Shipping, the new SPICY BOI
My sons and I can hardly hold back our excitement waiting for the new season.
Please tell me Faruq opened this match with the words "I AM THE GOD OF HELLFIRE, AND I BRING YOU..."
Just a guess, but Free Shipping vs Blacksmith?
Any plans to show it in the UK this season?
I feel warm just looking it. Can’t wait for the new season.
Omgosh!!!! I can not wait for this season! Our family just started rewatching the last two that are still on our dvr
I thought it started in april..??
There's no way this isn't a Free Shipping fight
The robot on the left looks like Mohawk, not sure about the bot on the right.
Battlebots my 8 year old daughter and I had the time of our lives. The trip from Kansas was soooo worth it. Thank you!!
What!?!! Will be there tomorrow hoping for chaos!
Given how many robots have flamethrowers this could be any match. That said stills of the flames in mid combat are beautiful to look at, so I'm looking forward to seeing whatever may be happening here.
The hype is real! Cant wait for this season to air!!!
I'm hoping that they banned those satellite bots. 😠
great balls of fire
I hope it’s Tombstone getting roasted under there lol

As a valued commenter, I would like to remind everyone that it IS possible to achieve your dreams by working hard. Take me as an example!
In their opinions
Sandy's doing a "Bang up Job" on the social videos😀
When does it start back?
What s warhead best match
Oh man I definitely need to become a supporter ASAP XD
We don’t have to comment saying we’re top fans... it says it right above our names...
I wish Robot Wars had this sort of Social Media interaction with it's fanbase during it's short stint reboot. What Battlebots is doing right now is a great way to get the fans and people involved in what's going on. Keep up the great work Battlebots!
How do fans become supporter or VIPs?
Is there a way to support without putting payment info into FB?
Ignore me, not yet a top fan
What is your most used tool ?
I've watched 3 sessions live. Nice thing about having only 1 smoke/vape spot is I got to talk to many of the builders. Makes me feel I can build a bot too. Now just have to figure out rock, paper, scissors and money.
Will bronco be there at the tournament 2019??
Top fan here Biteforce send that toolbox and tools my way if you buy some new ones lol. Very nice setup btw.
Thanks for stopping by our pit! Bite Force - Aptyx Designs - Battlebots Team
She is a doll! Great job!
Where is the Minotour?
Soo ready for the new season!!!

Not quite sure what’s going on here… ... See MoreSee Less
GET HIM OUT OF THERE BEFORE HE PUTS ANOTHER SPINNER ON IT
Looks like it could be used for an update of the old Chinkilla robot!
I want to know if they have cutouts of every driver
I’m most worried about the hair getting out of place. Haha.
Ready for battle
Andre is there, so probably enormous amounts of snark
dead. i cant handle this junk lmao expect to see stuff like this when its my time to be in the pits. "where's my pit area? look for my giant floating head"
If another bot sees this, it may just turn to stone!
Donald Hutson: O M A E W A M O U S H I N D I E R U
Donald is a Terminator!!!
What am I missing out on? XD
That escalated quickly lol
We CAN bring our own signs in, correct?
When is it on?
Uhhhh can our signs be light up? Like the ones we hold in the stands? Because I have all kinds of ideas now
Looks like a perfect night light for my kids. Where do I order?
Not sure either. I'll allow it
Shenanigans should be declared at any time.....
Feels like some kind of taunt to me lol
That's how he destroys his opponents
I swear these are the most horrifying signs ever.

Favorite audience photo so far… ... See MoreSee Less
My kids skipped school for session 1 too 😁 And their teachers were fully supportive to miss school for BattleBots!
He’s got great printing!
❤❤❤ thank you for posting this
Best mum ever!
Great event today! Had a lot of fun.
Great reason to skip! Write a paper on it for your teacher when you get back and include pics!
We "only" flew 1000 miles and didn't miss school, but got back so late Sunday night I'm sure my 4th grader was pretty spacey all day... #parentingwin
Yeahhh! That’s my boy..😂
I bet he's learning more at Battlebots than at school.
Luckiest kid ever
Glad I’m not the only parent that did this. 1809 miles :):)
Where and when will this be on TV in 2019??
hope he has a better excuse when he comes back to school
A real fan of Battle Bots ♥
Something doesn't seem right here. I don't think this is a legit photo. No kid would be proud to say they skipped school for anything. The bright green sign seems out of place.
I can't wait for this new season!
2,867.2 mi door to door... one day of school missed but we scored standby tickets to watch our local team compete Friday night #BestDayEver #RobotFightingTime #HUGEfansCT
I flew my son out last year on his 16th birthday to watch the Sweet 16 - 2,640 miles. We must be their neighbors!
If you're going to miss school... that's the place to be!
Our kid is skipping school to come as well
This kid might one day be one of the builders!
This kid had a blast @ battlebots!

Fuzzy explains the finer points of the on set toilets… ... See MoreSee Less
This is actually hestercial
You could say the clogged toilets are a FUZZY situation. I'll walk myself out.
How many engineers does it take to flush a toilet?
Apparently it's bodily function night on me time line
Not sure I want to know what caused Fuzzy to have to tell everyone XD
A crap job but someone needed to do it.
These men/women can make complicated robots but can't figure out how to flush?
And then Aaron said... “Fuzzy really knows his [stuff].” 😆
Please make this personal in the battlebot
how many people won't do this maybe that can be who fuzzy fights the ones who don't do that
Why do I get a feeling at least one person is gonna screw up and Fuzzy’s gonna have to flush them?
Potty talk is a new form of conversation in the BB pits.
What people think happens at BattleBots 👊🏻 🙌👑🏆💰vs. what really happens at BattleBots😷💩🤕 🤬 haha
Wow the guys have To get lessons how to use the bathroom? I guess we live in crazy times. Perhaps let them watch instructional videos on YouTube while using the lavatories. 🤣
Hay Peter ❤️
Why couldn't they get normal toilets?
OK, who made the toilet briefing necessary?
the public one are nicer than last year, thanks

My sons 11th birthday surprise and 1st Battlebots live . Such an amazing experience . Can’t wait to view on Television . Thank you BattleBots my son had the best birthday .
Mitch Cohen Andrew Beau Clark Adam Kranz
Here today and its pretty cool!
So jealous - can’t wait to get to Long Beach for the last few days!!!! Play hard Ribbot!!!!!🐸
The event seems amazing! I'm so jealous because I'm in Canada and it would be too much of a hassle to see it live but I cannot wait to see the championship on tv!!!
and will probably here something soon on season 4 airing because if you've seen the hooked on a feeling promo for new and returing shows that discvovery has one of the people lip synicng is farroq so it should be announced soon
I hope that's not a spoiler but... I hope the fights r great & entertaining.
Жду команду из России!!!
Hello all We have premier tickets for Wed. early session. Is there a separate parking entrance for us? I think we get in early... what time should we be there?
BUILD A BATTLEBOX IN DETROIT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
where i can watch videos from that event? exciting was 2018
So one of the fights is gonna be Blacksmith vs Warhead?
My son loved it too!
Can’t wait to watch this on tv. June 7th isn’t that far off.
Pulling into the lot now for today's battles!!
What are the match ups for the first session this Tuesday?
Yeah... Blacksmith is screwed.
Fire never works, it’s just flashy and looks good for the cameras
I’m going tonight, can’t wait
Is being in the tunnel worth it ? Thats all thats left in tickets. My son is Autistic and loves this show so much but I heard bad reviews about all the waiting time . He couldn't do that . I would like people's input from the tunnel . Thanks
Day one of fights is over. Eight more to go. Tickets still available at battlebots.com/tickets ... See MoreSee Less
I am so going next year!
It was super fun! My family loved it!
I see yall
Had a blast this past Sunday April 14th. Celebrated my sons 7th birthday and he was over the top excited to be there.
We had a great time!
We had a great time! Can't wait to do it again next season!
I remember this crowd! Had a great time and will be back again.
This was so much fun! Glad we got a chance to attend.
I see myself and my family!! Awesome! 🙌🏽
Destruction!!! Smoke!!! Fire!!! Had a fantastic time with family. My 7 year old nephew was over the moon. Great show!!Great job!!
Booked flights, bought tickets and now my son has a stomach flu:( If you are interested 2 premiere tickets for Thursday at 6 PM, send me a message. For those who can attend, have fun!!!
So this is pre-taped way in advance? When is this going to air? Waiting for the next season. and hopefully this time you guys won't screw up the air order. Last time you played them all randomly out of order every week. It was a mess.
I wish the show comes to NYC
Can’t wait for the 20th and the fights I get to see in person. Hoping that Ribbot has a fight in the last few days - go Ribbot - BattleBot!!!!!
We were there. See you again for another session soon.
Possible to watch a live?
When will official pictures of each bot be on the website?
So does the show get televised in June? I really want to see it come on in the UK.
Go Black Dragon! #TeamUairrior
When does it get televised?
In the red square......
Go Black Dragon 🔥🔥
A nice tribute to Rex Garrod from Sarah and the 2019 BattleBots builders. Rex was the builder of Cassius, an influential robot from RW UK. He passed away recently. ... See MoreSee Less
For those that want to know, this is Rex and Cassius. It was the first true flipper and the first robot to self right on television. It paved the way for a large number of machines in both the US and UK. Rex also designed and built props for children's programmes like Brum and The Teletubbies. He was a very kind man and it's a shame we lost him. Rest well Rex.
a true legend the man did so much for robot combat i honestly don't think there's been a more talented engineer and robot maker in the uk at least since him rex you where one of the greatest RIP
Hope his family see it that we all loved him and his now god status on shuntposting he will always be remembered and it's also nice that the robotic fighting community coming together to praise the the legend that is REX
Rex was an absolute legend. If he never competed, we wouldn't have all the modern safety standards we have now. We wouldn't have powerful flippers like Bronco or Apollo. Heck there would be a very real possibility that Robot Combat would have died out if Rex never competed. Rest in Power Rex, you absolute legend.
Nice job Sarah. Good to see everyone paying tribute to an all-time legend. RIP Rex.
The irony of BattleBots doing a tribute to Rex Garrod when in nine seasons they’ve again and again refused any wedge flipper that’s applied.
R.I.P. sir Rex. God bless you and yours.
So many people influenced by Rex, it's amazing to see. He was the reason I'm an engineer!
Nerds are cool!🤜🏼🤛🏻
Can you do a 10 alarm salute during opening on the show
Rest in Peace Rex, a true innovator and gentleman
Thank you for acknowledging Robot Wars for this, you never had to but it shows how much the whole sport matters to you guys and girls running the show that you let everyone have this moment to acknowledge someone we all hold dear across the pond.
