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

Dino Morales Chavarry ahdgsjshsjas 😍😍😍
Some incredible builds this year! Can’t wait!
Just here to show off my Top Fan badge and look at some awesome robots.
It's very interesting seeing the upgrades and new paint schemes! Seems a lot of teams are making t heir bots brighter!
I think it’s safe to say that the 4 Horsemen are no longer the 4 Horsemen.
Carlos Cruz xd
I’m glad all of the bots are no longer straight metal. It makes it hard to keep track of who’s who.
The bot lineup looks amazing this year! I want to see mammoth hit something at least once.
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
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
AXE BACKWARDS...Now THAT's a good looking team!!! Can't wait to see you in action. Go AXE!!!!!!!! 🤩👍😍😁👍
I see we have a lot of tombstone clones this year..
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 got bored
How can we watch the episodes?
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! 😀
Can I have a VIP badge on Twitch? Jk 😁😁😁
So when can we watch? I’m ready!
Why Twitch and not Facebook? Hmmm...
Classic BattleBots from Comedy Central?
Kimberly Mark Frey
WTH is Twitch?
Unless you’re now running Robot Wars, I’m truly stumped.
I’m twitching with excitement! I’m so sorry, I’ll grab my coat.
Rooting for a video game!
I dont have a twitch
Can you just put it on YouTube? I don't watch nor want twitch
What time on the 6th???
Oh now this sounds like it’s gonna be good! 🙂
Is twitch available outside of the US?
Is it something you have to pay for?

Ray Billings & Tombstone got this.
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.
Glad to see Bronco’s back; I flippin’ love Bronco.
Cool. My heart is ready to watch Minotaurrrrr !!!!!
Heck yeah bronco will be here this season!!!
Lets see Railgun Max do well in the year of the third season of Railgun
With machines like Quantum, Cobalt, Monsoon and Nelly, looks like it could be a great year for the UK bots!
This is just awesome. Love seeing all the teams.
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...
It’s RIBBOT fighting time!!!!
I can’t wait to see the new Hydra in action
Nightmare my first ever love ❤ will you ever be able to self right? I don’t care
I just wish Incould see this in the U.K.
On the website and in our hearts. Can’t wait for the new season!
Awesome, cant wait!!
Great pictures of all the teams
Fantastic lineup of varied bots this year! Can’t wait!
When is it starting????
Can't wait for the season to start!
I can't wait!!
Some of those bots should have retired and built something new 😀
Woah wait-is Nightmare gonna fight?
I want to see Bronco vs. Tombstone and see tombstone get flipped OVER the top of the box!
I hope someone make a bot with a jackhammer and a rubber-tire armor...
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!😁
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 Faruq! He does a great job👍🏻
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.
Faruq is the best!!
I have always skipped past the long intros to get to the action, but when we saw him at the taping this year and saw what a great guy he is and how much he puts into it, I became a Faruq fan and will no longer skip his intros.
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.
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 can't wait. Love BattleBots.❤️
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
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!
Are we seriously getting Rick rolled on the fight card? Well done people well done.
So ready to watch it again. The destruction just can't wait.
He does a great job at delivering corny intros.
Faruq The Wordsmith. Always down to verbally clown. The illest and the chillest.
This wait feels like forever! Lol
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.
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...
"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.
Loved attending the live taping! It was a great experience!
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
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.
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.
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
Actual fights would’ve been great! You would definitely spark more interest among your non-viewers.
Huh? Science AND discovery promo? Maybe the discovery one will have actual footage of the fights, like last year
Hoping this gets put on Netflix or hulu.
I like it. Reminds me of the OG BattleBots intro.
Needs more 🤖 🔥 💥 but it’s good!
Dominic Di Battista
Meh. Not horrible, but certainly not going to bring in new viewers.
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...
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.
Where can I watch it in Australia?!?!
Looks like the intro from the Classic series of Robot Wars
Which channel shows the most fights per episode?
Is this still the same hour as last year?
Could use some footage from past fights.
Finally. I love Battlebots
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?
Christa Faulk McJunkin Jacob McJunkin
Thanks Dick we are taking note.
LucFooyTjeerdKollenburgGerbrand Vos Joris van Hulten zo lang ze deze niet hebben is er geen probleem
Ray’s cameo is the best part!
That was fantastic especially the ending with Tombstone!! Cannot wait for Battlebots to start!!
Plot twist: This is part of HEXBUG's new BattleBots line: jigsaw puzzles
It will KEEEEL!!!
Good Mythical Morning. They ripped you guys off.
Not even Tombstone can withstand the wrath of the hammer! Here's to hoping that will happen to Tombstone more than once this season!
Hahaha amazing reaction from Ray <3
So excited for the new season!!!
All of those VEX parts- no!.... 😱
Amanda L. McLellan
I never realized it until now, but we NEED a "Will it Smash" webseries about smashing things with the BattleBox Hammer. I don't care what random junk you smash with it, I just need to see it happen!
Proving that even the toy of tombstone is a beast! 😂 That’s awesome
lego version !? 🤔
Our toy exploded nicely!
Lol I'm dying. This is still more legit than when Discovery fed the fake, wooden Minotaur to the shark. Lol
I wish I could have all those toys you smashed to give to my sons. They would of loved to have them.
still does bugger all to the actual robots..
So..Discovery or History channel? When...????
That's not the real Minotaur 😭
I genuinely thought those were the real things for a moment

I hope they do them in adult sizes!
That cool make more t-shirts
I don't see any sizes for the youth season tees- are they sold out already?
We got one each!
Quero camisetas assim <3
My little ginger has both of these!!!!
If Duck wins the Nut I will post a video of myself dancing interpetively to the Duck Tales theme song in a rainbow tutu.
Love this show!
I forgot to get a Duck shirt.... darnit!
No the Duck hes fyl
