Robot Wars: The Brand New BBC Series is a two-disc DVD and Blu-ray disc release including all six episodes of Series 8 of Robot Wars. Released on 29th August 2016 by Dazzler Media with content first aired on BBC Two, it was the first of two home media releases related to the rebooted series, preceding the Complete Compendium 2017 boxset. There are no special features other than subtitles, and each disc contains the first and last three episodes of the series.



  • Due to the DVD and Blu-ray being released the day after the airing of Robot Wars concluded, online orders meant that some buyers received their copies before the Grand Final had aired on television.
  • The prototype artwork on the case of the product did not feature Shunt, which was only a late addition to the final design.
  • The image on the spine of the product is a headshot of Dara Ó Briain and Angela Scanlon.
