- "It's hard to believe this is only the fourth issue of Robot Wars Magazine. The experience of working on the magazine has been so amazing and given me so much food for thought that it feels like far longer. ... we've only been able to do this tanks to the amazing dedication and enthusiasm of the people who work behind the scenes on the show, all of whom have supported us every step of the way."

Errors and Omissions[edit | edit source]
- In the Tech Round Up section, Mike Franklin incorrectly claims the first two robots defeated by Hypno-Disc were Axios and Toe Cutter, when those robots never fought Hypno-Disc, having fought Panic Attack in Series 3. Robogeddon and Stealth were the first two robots to fight Hypno-Disc.
- In the report for the Heat J Final, the picture of Dominator 2 and Hydra in the CPZ is actually from their first round battle.
