Who remembers @lavalleyscott and DooMore? ... See MoreSee Less
Oh yes. One of the original super heavy beasts
This seems like a random posting. Hope the builder is alright.
I thought this was bones.
When do we get to see the show?
Love the old school bots.
Oh hey, DooMore!
Scott is awesome, one of the best robotics engineers in the world
Don’t his parents run the merchandise stand at the tapings? Talked with them at the last filming. Was good to see them.
I remember DoAll! Read about the others. 😅
How about a little love for DooAll ?
Bring back Mechadon!
I remember a DooAll, but not a DooMore
Who remembers La Machine? (Photographed here with “Evil” Pete Lambertson after perfecting the scoop). ... See MoreSee Less
I assume "perfecting the scoop" includes a nice coating of Pam?
Was the story that ya’ll took the battery from someones car, threw it in La Machine for the event, and then took it back out to drive home?
I always liked this '97 version with the pneumatic punch
Why is it black and white? The 90s weren’t THAT long ago.
I remember the "Pete" chants. Is he still involved with the arena?
I wish I did. I discovered Battlebots a little later.
Watching it now 🙂
My boys grew up watching the original show. It was a family event! When I saw the first season of the new episodes I started crying remembering when my boys were little. Seeing some of the veteran builders from the original show was awesome! I Can't wait for the new episodes!
That was back in the day. I remember in the early 2000s, the wedge was considered the ultimate weapon. Now that motors and batteries are more powerful and compact, it’s amazing how times have changed. In this day in age, it’s the vertical spinner. Biteforce can probably launch a bot just as high as Bronco or Hydra can...?
Where it all began...la machine!
That was before my time, I'm afraid. But I'm sure eager to see BattleBots on TV again!
Reading an article about this robot is what introduced me to the sport.
I would love battlebots to have a robot combat history segments of the show
Saw it this morning as I went to work
Yes, from the book that I read so much, pages started falling out😂
Perfect case of the keep it simple stupid way of building robots "let's make the biggest wedge we can and make it stupid fast"
Wedge bots are the campers of battlebots. Sure it's a legitimate strategy, but also c'mon dude, use some imagination.
Original pioneer of the 1996 robot wars in San Fransico which is created by Marc Thorpe.
I do, by Adam Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel from The Man Show going up against Jay Leno's Chinkilla.
One of the biggest pioneers in the sport.
Needs more PAM
Didn’t he compete in one match where he teamed up with dreadknot and gensu against Jey Leno’s chinkilla?

Hey all - let’s trust that Battlebots is doing the right thing for their builders. My kid is a builder and driver and would like nothing more to go tape the show but it requires lots of people to pull it off and it requires teams from international locations. Health and safety is the best plan.
don't they mean Radio Controlled machines? will be more interesting when they are autonomous and programmed to fight 🙂
How about just run the new season without spectators and put it out there? How tough would it be? The pit crews have to wear masks anyway when dealing with volatiles, and you are working with robots.
Yawn! Just upload videos of past battles
I got worried that something had happend since they dident post anything for suck a long time😧🙂
IT’S SOCIALLY DISTANT ROBOT FIGHTING TIME!!!
Enjoy this fantastic video from Team Witch Doctor featuring Chris Rose! ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks for the great content. My whole family enjoyed watching!
Greetings from Argentina!!! Big fan here, can't wait for the robot fighting time to be back! Stay safe 🙌
First look at the big version of SMEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Hilarious!! Ready for to set dates for the real thing?
Beard is good!
SMEEEEEEEEEEEE - doorstop with wheels FTW! lol!
And now I need Free Shipping vs. Extinguisher.
Nowe roboty będą.
Absolutely amazing job, man I'm speechless what an idea, thanks Chris and roboteers!
Steve Jakes 🤖 🥊 ⏰!
Can't even explain how much we needed that!
Chris did a GREAT job as always! Can't wait for this Season! AUGUST~!?
Looks like Duck is turning on a dime. Can’t wait to see it compete!!! Stay safe!
Bring on the new, improved Quack Attack! Hal and Duck! 3.0 rock!
The last time I saw poor Duck, he got chomped on. It was hard to watch.🥵
As long as it isn’t this Duck
Duck vs the FedEx truck!
Wow nice design. I can already see that some of the fights will slice duck in half
Cant wait for duck quack can't wait for him in the bot arena!!!!!!
Duck is one or two matches from being a contender. Learning each time...
I'm very curious to see how this new Duck performs~
Please tell me there's a protective body for this platform.
My 4 year old daughter loooooves duck!!!
Nice robot...but please don't take this to fight arena
Bring on the duck cobalt rematch 🙌
That’s just quackers. 😂
More content like this please. Thanks all.
When is the 2020 season gonna go down??
... See MoreSee Less
Can’t wait for more robot fighting!
Awesome. Give me a ballpark figure, when do you think taping can safely start?
Its a NEED kinda thing.......I need my fix . Destruction !
Can’t wait! This is my favorite show of all time!
I'm ready and waiting to order a million tickets again.
I hope Faruq Tauheed Jenkins has been working on some quarantine puns.
Omg i can't wait to hear Faruq utter those words.... it's robot fighting time!
Are we getting a new battle arena this year?
As much as I'm excited for it to return. Most importantly I do hope that everyone participating or involved for this series will stay stafe.
Loved the Tombstone / Bideford Final viewed here in South Africa - Thank you...!
Ahhh man, I miss you guys! Please come back soon. I’ll watch a camera crew follow some of the teams around while they do behind the scenes tests, I don’t care. Just miss your show.
You want moore????
Can't wait for season 5. Hopefully it is soon.
This is not only my favourite sport, I love the fanbase too, this is the nicest one I've ever been in
When will you return surely can be done safely??
Yessss! Need some of this!
cant wait to see some more news! lets have us a season 5!
Oh thank god, I thought this would last for a week
Ready for some robot fighting time!
Another dedicated fan waiting!
Waiting to watch the fun
Wonder if any newcomers will reveal any new bots that are will be cool to see I cant wait to see DUCK in the ring like that bot
The only show I really watch and cheer on lol😈😂😏😛👍

“In the red square lots of incredible puns. In the blue square, an equally amusing pun!”
Can't wait to see some machines smashing the living shit out of each other again for another season once this Covid crap is over. Legendary show!
I'm so hyped for this season
Omg i can hardly wait love this show
Robots Activated It's fighting time!!!
I'm ready!! 🤖❤
Anyone know when the new season starts?
Color on top of black? Is that the message?
Glad to see you fixed it
I am still building my robot I will be there soon
I really love • son of whyachi • tombstone • quantum•blacksmith • hydra • bronco • witch doctor • unicorn • e.t.c

Battle butts needs to get on TV! Wazzup?
We can’t wait
Vuelvan pronto !
I miss You guys. Hurry back. Damned Covid.
Do we need 3D glasses to watch season 5? 😎😊
Still waiting for an official game that is similar to robot arena 2
Does any of the builders watch the old battlebot shows!!! This kind of bot usually dies spectacularly!!!!!!!
Metal on plastic....NOT impressed! Good luck
I like, practice driving. Would not hurt to have your edges flared like a sedge so if you lose spinner, you can still send other spinners into the june bug affect.
Get you some, Bloodsport!! Looking good!
This virus needs to go away cuz its messing with the battlebots season -_-
The square base is an improvement. What is the weight that it can move like that? LBS per square inch in force?
They are gunna have issues with the slim line bots though. Could get up underneath that blade
Can it withstand it's own kinetic energy hit? A lot of these large spinners seem to knock themselves out when they collide with something hard.
Propeller is going to snap right off and throw the whole bot against the wall the first time it hits something solid.
I have doubts about BLOODSPORT beating BITEFORCE. Bloodsport is good, but they are gunning for PAUL VENTIGIMILIA. I will believe IF and WHEN I see it
I can’t wait, ohhhh I can’t wait. I’m having robot destruction withdrawals Hahahaha.
Damn, that was brutal! Just spontaneously removed that monitor from existence. 😛
Bite Force really let itself go though 🤔🤣
My golly miss molly . But no i dont think he can beat bite force
Ability to self right?
Only if they are a computer monitor.....
So it’s Hazard without the wedge
The tv was a sitting duck.
If brutality and bite force had a baby .... 😅😂
Cool bot. Can it recover if it got flipped over by says Hydra or Bronco?
Seems like Bloodsport has changed a bit
On your left, your plans for the year. On your right, 2020...
Tombstone may found his match....
Tombstone will destroy it.
just dont try this at home kids. theres mercury in them old tvs lol

Floyd was under arrest because he refused to return goods purchased with counterfeit money. Store even asked him to and he refused and resisted arrest.
Please stop involving politics. Look what you're doing. You're dividing fans here and causing tension among them. We all enjoy battlebots, and we come here for the fun and metal crunching mayhem. We didn't come here for more politics and social justice nonsense. Please, out of respect...don't do that. Battlebots and fun for everyone!
I am with peaceful protest. But what are they doing on name of justice. Anarchy!! And why free palestine and allah o uber slogans. Is this sympathy with victim or agenda. RIP Floyd but this is not tribute.
What does this have to do with Robots???
Bot Lives Matter #JusticeForTombstone
This is a page about robots💔
Apparently the answer to racism is a freshly stolen TV.
Your picture did not come through.
Killer robots are for everyone! Let the hobby bring people together. Keep politics out of fun.

Black Lives Matter
... See MoreSee Less
As some people don't get it: If a house on a street was burning down, you would go put that house out. You wouldn't send a fire engine to every house on the street. If the house on fire is Black Lives, and the other houses on the street are White Lives, the street itself is "All Lives". All the houses matter, the street matters, but Black Lives is on fire right now. Hence #BLM right now (and for the many years of peaceful protest ignored before it), but we are not discounting everyone else. All the houses matter, but Black lives is the one on fire right now. And until its out, we all have to remind people of it. Division of our race is self-destructive, so let's help out those who need it when they do, even if it means using an elevated platform like the page of a huge TV show to shout it.
All of you are filth and complicit in the deaths of dozens, hospitalisation of hundreds and the looting and destruction of the communities you say your in solidarity with. How about justice for Patrick Underwood who was viciously beaten you death by the rioters you lot are supporting?
What has this got to do with robots tearing each other apart?
Why can’t it just stay Battlebots? Why bring this shit on this page?
Battlebots won't miss you if you've unfollowed because of this. It's great when the trash takes itself out.
hey. you all need to think of this from the lucrative side. we all need to go attend these protests and wear bot shirts. think of how many more viewers we can get! probably more than Discovery's ever bothered getting for us because goodness knows they barely can put up an ad!
كل ساقي بما سقى سيسقى 🇮🇶 والنبيه تكفي له الاشاره
No one gives a shit about you changing your profile pic "for a cause". When's the last time you changed your profile pic for mentally disabled people? Who are everywhere. And have been since before you were born. Does the disabled person need to have a certain color before you care?
What about the people killed by these riots?
Really, even you guys are stooping to the low of exploiting a tragedy for revenue.
nobody colour nobody race nobody religion only one word HUMAN. Big hugs from Italy 🇮🇹❤️🇺🇸
Send Tombstone in to the riots! Looting is tougher with no ankles😈
everyone should read The Declaration of Independence. all men are created equal.. some how and some ware this message has been lost!
Thank you for acknowledging this fight against injustice, Battlebots. Knew I was a fan for a reason ❤
Why does everyone need to be involved?
Get Some!!! ... See MoreSee Less
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!
