"These metallic machines of mayhem have crashed out of the battle arena and are ready for construction!"
— Official description from the Robot Wars Online Shop[1]

The Pitstop Kits were a series of Robot Wars merchandise items. The toys were larger than the pullbacks, but smaller than the radio controlled toys. They came with many pieces, some that actually appeared on the robots, others were made up uniquely for the Pitstop toys. These include a spinning hammer with Hypno-Disc and a scoop with Panic Attack. The side panels could be changed between all 3 of the Pitstop Kit toys, as they all shared the same base. Unlike the pullbacks, the Pitstop toys contained various metal components.

Only three Pitstop Kits were released, of Hypno-Disc, Panic Attack, and Matilda. A Sgt. Bash Pitstop toy was announced, but never released. The image of the Sgt. Bash Pitstop Kit on the back of the Matilda Pitstop Kit packaging was actually an image of the R/C Sgt. Bash model, released in 2003. They were somewhat succeeded by the Robot Wars Construction Sets, released in 2019.
