Dead Metal was one of four House Robots to be sold as part of the Robot Wars Construction Sets range, released in August 2019. Based upon the Series 3-4 version of Dead Metal from Robot Wars, it was priced at £24.99, also being sold as part of a four-pack alongside Matilda, Shunt and Sir Killalot, at a cost of £79.99 for the complete set.
The Dead Metal Construction Set was sold as a box containing 279 stainless steel pieces, which the user could assemble using a set of instructions included as a paper sheet in the box. When fully assembled, the toy replicates Dead Metal as it appeared in Series 3-4 of the show, complete with red circular saw. This is despite the back of the construction set's packaging reflecting the Series 8 version of Dead Metal.
The toy runs on two wheels, and was generally the most accurate representation of the original House Robot's design, out of the four Construction Sets released. A number of holes were added into the metal struts to save weight, permit manual bending, and to make the toy somewhat resemble Meccano.
- Although the Dead Metal Construction Set enjoyed a quiet launch through online retailers in August 2019, the toy was first revealed as early as March 2018, and was not seen again between the official announcement and release, with Robot Wars offering no marketing on the toy's behalf.
