Can someone please put the information for the other weight categories on this page? It only has the winner, rather than the other competitors. Thanks. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 23:17, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

I'll take care of it. But there's that 3rd middleweight robot that no one knows the name of. What should we do about that? Also, regarding Armakillo, there's a bit of confusion over its name. JP called it Armakillo, but the captain called it Armadillo. Who takes precedence? RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas 23:36, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Take what the captain says. JP often makes mistakes in his excitement. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 23:41, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Heats B and D Edit

"Out Of Order: Heats B and D of the second Wars were swapped round when broadcast, this is obvious when the heat winners are introduced in the semi-finals in heat order and Mace (winner of the broadcast Heat B) comes out 4th and Behemoth (the winner of the broadcast heat D) comes out second."

Has anyone heard this statement before? TG (t c) 04:09, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Challenge quality uploads? Edit

I've just looked on my Sky box and it seems Series 2 will be available to download. So is it possible for challenge quality uploads of this series? It's all the episodes and will be available to download up until 30th March 2017. Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 18:07, July 15, 2016 (UTC)

Maybe we should ask Jimlaad43 if he could have a look at it. StalwartUK 18:31, July 15, 2016 (UTC)
I'll send him a message.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 06:29, July 16, 2016 (UTC)
I don't always have to get the episodes, other people can do it as well. As this isn't recording off a TV it's not as restrictive as the other ones. Jimlaad43(talk) 07:26, July 16, 2016 (UTC)

Robot Wars Revealed Edit

On the website of Team UK Robotics (The team that entered Rottweiler and Constrictor), there was a video of edited highlights of "Robot Wars Revealed", a show that featured more behind the scenes footage and interviews from the show. The video link no longer works on the archived page, but thankfully someone has put it on YouTube ([1]).

According to the More Panda Monium website, Robot Wars Revealed was shown exclusively on BBC Choice (later known as BBC Three) [2]

Does anyone have any more information about this show, because when I did a search, all I could find other than that were articles about the new series such as "Celebrity special competitors revealed" and "New Robot Wars presenters revealed." Drop Zone mk2 (talk) 14:00, January 2, 2017 (UTC)

In that case, we basically have enough content to make an article. What leads me to hesitate, though, is this. Can we be certain this was a one-off? It seems strange to me that the video we just watched, focusing on Rottweiler from King Buxton's heat, was the only one. ToastUltimatum 15:57, January 2, 2017 (UTC)
At the end of the aforementioned clip, Philippa Forrester does say 'join us next time', which is the strongest evidence I can find that proves that Robot Wars Revealed was a series rather than a one-off special. Further reinforcing this is the fact that the Robot Wars 101 website mentions that it was scheduled to start on 8th November 1998, so could there perhaps be more episodes that have yet to appear in cyberspace?

All of this talk is very interesting... a Robot Wars spinoff we never knew existed! Vampireweekend4ever (talk) 01:42, January 3, 2017 (UTC)
Could somebody try and see if they can get any audience viewing numbers? I tried the BARB website but you need an account.--Voyanuitoa (talk) 09:36, January 3, 2017 (UTC)
The EyeEye Robots website mentions it as well. Vampireweekend4ever (talk) 01:46, January 4, 2017 (UTC)

Lots of new information from Team B! As King Buxton took part in Heat I of Series 2, Simon Harrison had access to the full version of the episode uploaded by Rottweiler's team, which is now available to watch on their Facebook page! Team B seem to imply in the comments section that there were more of these, I think we have enough information for an article. Any volunteers to write one? TOAST 23:09, February 20, 2017 (UTC)
