Can it really flip?

One of them, actually, HEXBUG revealed a 2nd one earlier today with a new Witch Doctor.

Does this mean that the HyperShock that was previewed at NY Toy Fair back in FEB is finally coming out now too?

Awesome!

When BattleBots returns to Discovery on August 3rd we'll have a little twist waiting for you: We call it the Desperado Flash Tournament.

8 robots who are down on their luck—just having a bad season—will volunteer to enter a sudden death tournament with three back-to-back matches. Three wins, and you're in the BattleBots World Championship at the end of the season.

Don't miss it: August 3rd - 8pm ET on Discovery

PLEASE Dont let CHOMP waste a place on this bracket!

This original thread started with giant criticism of Zoe Stephenson’s robot, CHOMP. Instead of criticizing, why don’t you build a bot and defeat her. It’s always easy to sit back and criticize. Much harder to prove your own skill and knowledge.

Hope BRWC is in this. 😎 I've not ran out of burger puns yet.

Hey I love that BattleBots is back, I watched the last two seasons when they were on Hulu, as I don't have cable. Is this show, or will it be in the future, returning to any streaming platforms like Hulu or Netflix?

If you look at the picture on the actual episode you can see that: Lockjaw vs Kraken Valkirie vs hypothermia La machine (or whatever) vs Gemini And finally the best fight double dutch vs gigabyte

The original show, with three weight classes, was better.

Great idea in principle, but problematic that 8 robots have only had 1 fight so hard to judge their success. Bombshell, Captain Shrederator and Chomp are the obvious contenders for this with 0-3 records. Eight robots have 0-2 records with another four at 0-1. Hopefully they did another one of these for the bots who are right on the cusp of getting into the top 16.

I suspect Witch Doctor is going to be in it. It's had a bad season.

Why are you not on the next 2 weeks....we really missed it tonight.....

I love pvr'ing this show... so I can fast forward past all the bs and watch the battles only.

When will you announce who is in the tourney?

I'm going to assume Chomp, Chaos Corps - Bombshell - BattleBots and HyperShock will be in. Those are the 3 big named bots that I can think of off the top of my head that have had bad luck and are currently out.

Sam discovery desperately scrambling for a way to put chomp and witch doctor back on tv

I tuned in to watch BattleBots and it's not on ! I will have to wait till the 3rd how much does that suck

What a heavy season, we already hope that it will be doubled to Latin Spanish, I am sure that this program will reach more fans, the emos followed since its inception, we know that many teams are very veteran and are about to inherit the control to the next generation.

My guess is Bombshell, Chomp, Lock Jaw, Gigabyte, Captain Shrederator, Hypershock, Warrior Dragon, and Battle Royale with cheese.

A.K.A losers bracket. Guess we will have to see captain shredderator lose again. 🤣

Chuck Tombstone or Bronco in there too just for the lolz

Hopefully the non competitive Hamburger bot won't be in the bracket. It get sliced and diced every match I've seen.

Yeah I want to see Battle Royale with Cheese vs. just Buttercup

Three back to back is brutal.

Interesting concept. I will wait to see how this works out !

Its a great idea, yet I do sometimes wonder if it would have been a better idea to save this for the last few episodes. After all, some 0-2 teams can still make a comeback and some teams with 1 or 2 victories can still fall from grace.

Yeah I seen the advertisement for this on Discovery Channel it should be some decent matches and chances for Redemption as well can't wait to see that

I like this idea. 🙂

Too bad this was a fake that looked to be made of wood. The real Minotaur weighs about 250 lbs and probably would have broke the shark's mouth.

Minotaur would straight destroy that Sharkzilla in a fair fight if it wasn't rigged. It's obvious that's not a fully built, fully functional Minotaur either since the guy is chucking it around like it weighs almost nothing without straining. I.e., Riobotz website lists Minotaur at 250 lbs.

Shark Week! WTFuck. Id rather watch paint dry than this fucking piece of shit! Go to Hell bitches...

That wasn't the REAL Minotaur, if it was, the shark would have no teeth left.

Yawn Week..

Well shit. No Minotaur for next season 🙁

Rest in peace, Plasti-Taur.

I mean, it'd be pretty disgusting to see what Minotaur would do to an actual shark. lol

If minotaur fights sharkoprion....RIP sharkoprion

Minotaur would still tear that shark a new one!

Next BattleBots, Minotaur vs A real Life Shark and the left shark from the old Super Bowl

I'm never bet against Minotaur

Minotauro esta entre los mas destructivos, preguntenle a Bronco! Hoy si se topo con la orma de su zapato jajjaja.

I think I'll sit this one out.

Minotaur in sdcc?

Don't count out sharkoprion because there have been other robots that have made HUGE wins against big names.

Tori Parry if I have to watch a Minotaur fight sharkorpion... that will be the quickest fight ever

The better thing for DJ to do is pin Mecha Rampage to the wall and then fire the slug, instead of taking joke bait 3 seconds into the battle.

You guys dont have good eyes do you it hits the bot not the target

With only one shot, Double Jeopardy is fairly worthless. Having said that, there's now a precedent for firing projectiles. What's to prevent someone from mounting a home-made machine gun on their bot?

So instead of jamming up the spinner with their one shot, they take the bait at the top?

Pretty pointless if you only have 1 bullet imo

LOL I love it. Now if they just had another shot to hit the bot with. 🙂

Where is the kaboom? Where is the earth shattering kaboom?

I don't think their cannon is low enough to hit the bot, so why not have fun with it?

was at the taping on april 6th and 7th, when will those show be on tv?

Got him right in the right drive pod!

Bullseye! Dang, Double Jeopardy's got some aim in that cannon!

lol

I don't think it's hitting anything. The air blows the target down and the bot is intact so it didnt hit it either.

James Lanphere this is the bot I told you about

The guy with the mohawk. Wasn't he a driver for Concussion on Robotwars?

I really like Monsoon, it's a great bot. Once they figure out the reliability issues with the weapon they might be a contender for the great nut!

Tim (if that’s what his name is) really makes this team for me.

I really like monsoon. Tough bot. Seems to have some reliability issues at times with that asymmetric spinner though

I wasnt expecting him to lose to SOW that badly lol one of my fave newcomers too 🙂

Got beat quick n bad 😂

I'll be honest. I usually DON'T don't judge (or have an opinion of) bots before I see them in action. But I did judge DUCK (and HUGE) and thought they were going to get thrashed first time out. And I WAS WRONG! OK folks... you heard it here first... I WAS WRONG! BIG DUCK fan here!

Team Duck FTW!

They did a lot better against bronco than I thought they would

remind me of another bot that has a similar design and does wonders in the fighting robot scene. I'll be rooting for this waterfoul

Boring unarmed bot.

When Tombstone comes out and lowers his weapon, the duck will be cooked.😱😎

how high did duck fly?

Duck all the way. Big Duck lover here. Put him up against a tuff vertical spinner or even SOW and it should get this win. Inside my top 5 on this series.

Duck is a simple design and might be able to beat tombstone

I wish I saw this earlier. Would love to learn how they designed Duck to be so damn durable

I also thought it was super stupid but it did well and now I root for it lol

What the DUCK

Julie Brown, if it walks like a duck and fights like a duck. 🙂

Duck went farther than i thought it would against Bronco. But it had exactly the outcome i thought it would lol Solid little bot with good push, but still needs to stay away from flippers. Shoulda avoided Bronco's front end more

LIKE IF YOUR FAVORITE BOT IS TOMBSTONE (NOT JUST BECAUSE HE IS CHAMP CAUSE HE IS BEST BOT IN BATTLEBOTS)

I’m still rooting for old Hal. He was just pitted against the one bot his strategy wouldn’t work against last week is all.

Duck Is Cool

Hey Willie J Woolridge christmas is looking up for you😂

DUCK DUCK DUCK!

I like Duck. Like a temporary tattoo. Not a permanent one yet.

Duck reminds me of a smaller version of Vladiator

DUCK! DUCK! DUCK! DUCK!

Yeaahhh...Duck!!

Now's a good time to take that camping trip.

MEANWHILE ON AMAZON, THE SERIES THAT PEOPLE PAID FOR IN ADVANCE : Nothing past 9.

Hey Battlebots,my son's and I watch the show religiously. We love it. I really want to take them to a match one day. Wondering/Hoping if you're coming too Oakland,Ca anytime soon or back too San Francisco? Thanks again.

1st rate program on a 3rd rate network. Shark week?! The slow demise of Discovery channel.

It took a long time, but I finally managed to find the bottom 16: 55. Captain Shredderator 54. Chomp 53. Bombshell 52. Battle Royal With Cheese 51. Predator 50. Kracken 49. Hypothermia 48. Lucky 47. Parallax 46. Bale Spear 45. Mecha Rampage 44. Reality 43. Axe Backwards 42. Vanquish 41. Gigabyte 40. Double Jeopardy Whether these 16 or just some fan favorites who are underperforming this year will be included in the loser's elimination, I don't know. The tv I was watching didn't have the ability to pause, so I don't know who they've picked for this yet.

Is there a break now ?

Gotta echo the sentiment here - is there a separate release schedule for Amazon? Where's EP. 10?

When will episode 10 be released on Amazon?

Been watching at my bro's. Hoping this season and previous seasons will eventually find their way to Hulu or Netflix. Ever consider reviving the old old episodes from the Comedy Central days? Would love to see these again on DVD or some sort of format.

Good thing I bought the season on amazon great purchase 😌

How I’m only 2 seasons in on Battlebots. Anyone know how I can watch the 2015 & 16 seasons???

Will the untelevised fights whose results have been recorded on the Battlebots site be released on Youtube or some equivalent?

It's a good week to be off anyway, my son and I are headed off to fish and would have had to watch this week's match later anyway. We are huge Yeti fans for some reason.

That's cool. I hope you have someone special to bring you chocolate, wine, and cuddles.

Discovery should really be on the left, since shows there come first.

When will be shown in Australia? Please post details as can’t wait to watch it

I wish we had a season like this every year. This season has been awesome.

Any news on when it will be shown in the UK?

I guess I'll have to make do with pounding a VCR with a hammer to tide me over...

My 6 year old son and I are overjoyed that Battlebots is back! Even more so that there will be 20 episodes this season!!!

Lame. Sure to lose some viewers who will think it's done

Has there been a reboot season without a break? 🙈

Guess I'll have to break out the erector set and tear some stuff up

Great show!..Do you guys replay old fights on new episodes?

It's the Tennis all over again!

Do they ship free to residential too or just commercial addresses?

As dissapointing as it was to see Hypershock lose, it was a great fight! Gary Gin really showed off how good of a driver he is

Free Shipping always surprises me with how durable it is! Victory against Hypershock caught me off guard, for sure, that flamethrower is super effective. How much gas do you need to run it for a full fight?

I was very pleasantly surprised to see Free Shipping pull that win! I really enjoy watching the driving on this even if it doesn't look particularly nimble!

Im always impressed by how nimble Free Shipping is. It doesnt look it

For anyone confused by this "new" comer being so fast and strong... Basically just a facelift on this guy: youtu.be/SlqG6c5tJ9U?t=3m50s

Fire usually sucks but these guys know how to use it

Hypershock nemesis comes with Free Shipping... lol.

Hyper shock is more like Hyper Hype.

Free shipping stayed alive by pulling off a good win. Way to be guys.

#IhateHypershock

Why did you do that to HyperShock? That wasnt nice! 😭😭😭😭😭 lol
