Top 12 Robot Wars Robots20th January 2016
It’s been 12 years since Robot Wars was on our screens and now the battleground is back for a new series. Northern Lights have decided to compile a top 12 list of our favourite robots.
10. Sir Killalot – This mammoth monster proved the past doesn’t affect performance. He was a house robot designed to look like a knight. He was armed with a rotating drill and a hydraulic cutting claw. He wasn’t one to mess with!
8. Wheely Big Cheese – The robot that looked like a bit of cheese. Who can forget that? He had one of the largest flippers seen on the show and he was a long robot too with a length of nearly a metre and a half.
7. Sergeant Bash – Another one of the four house-bots. He was designed to look like a military vehicle with green army colours and flamethrower turret weapon. His design changed in different series but he was one of the first robots on the battleground back in Series 1.
4. Matilda – A female house-bot also known as “Tildy”. She was based on a mutant alien dinosaur; equipped with flipping tusks and interchangeable chainsaw or flywheel weapons at the rear.
3. Storm 2 – A fast box robot. Need we say anymore?
1. Chaos 2 – The robot never changed in appearance; a small, black wedged robot with armour. He was often considered a role model for any designs featuring flippers and even a role model for Robot Wars.
