Grand FinalEdit

Firestorm 4 vs RazerEdit


Dead Metal attacks Razer

The battle started cautiously as both robots circled in the centre of the arena, looking to find a gap in the other to exploit. Firestorm 4 eventually rode up the front of Razer and pushed it back in towards Dead Metal, who kicked sparks into the air with its circular saw before Razer finally wriggled out of the House Robot's grip.

"Razer in trouble momentarily and away."
— Jonathan Pearce

Razer concludes Firestorm 4's strong start

Meanwhile, in attempting to keep up its pressure on Razer, Firestorm 4 got itself stuck under the angle grinder. Razer caused little damage when it came across, however, and instead, with the help of Dead Metal, unpinned Firestorm 4. Firestorm 4 instantly came back onto the attack by getting under the front of Razer but couldn't manage to fully throw it over with its flip. Firestorm 4 then drove onto Razer's wedge again, and although it managed to force Razer backwards once more, the defending All-Stars champion had penetrated Firestorm 4's armour sufficiently enough for it to be able to lift Firestorm 4 up into the air as the beak retracted.

"Out come the wings of victory which signal the wings of doom for the defeated."

Razer drops Firestorm 4 into the pit, claiming the title once again

Finally, Firestorm 4 came back down onto the arena floor and tried to retreat, but Razer gave it no room to breathe and brought its crushing arm down onto the top of Firestorm 4. Firestorm 4 edged its way towards the pit, clearly limited in its movement, before Razer came in and inflicted more punishment onto Firestorm 4. Firestorm 4 then pushed the pit release button after a nudge from Razer, and was slowly pushed towards the pit before finally falling in to confirm Razer as the winner and the All-Stars champion for a second time.

"Razer all-conquering - take a bow."
— Jonathan Pearce

Trivia Edit

  • This was the third and final time Firestorm and Razer would meet, and the only time that did not go to a judges' decision.
  • The winner of the All-Stars Championship was originally intended to automatically qualify for the Commonwealth Carnage, but runner-up Firestorm ended up representing England in the Commonwealth Carnage instead, presumably because the winner, Razer, was already fighting in the European Championship.
