ToyEdit

We've put (Robot Name)/Pullback for all the other pullback style toys, what should we put for Sir K as he isn't a pullback? The same goes for Stinger. Llamaman201 (talk) 13:05, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Is there a better general name we can use for this set of toys or do you think we should use a separate name for these two robots? Christophee (talk) 16:54, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
I'm not really sure as they are (as far as I know) the only non-pullbacks. Sir K is a friction motor, whilst Stinger is a rip cord style cog motor. Llamaman201 (talk) 17:45, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
I reckon that as it was only these two that weren't pullback, we should label them as a pullback as tey were part of the pullback series and put a note on the page that it wasn't actually a pullback? Llamaman201 (talk) 12:22, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
I certainly don't have any better suggestions so I think we should go with that idea. Christophee (talk) 21:30, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

LeaderEdit

Was Sir Killalot still regarded as the leader of the house robots after Mr. Psycho was introduced? Prodworthy 10:42, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Yes. Llamaman201 (talk) 11:59, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Good. Prodworthy 11:12, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Early Name + Basis Edit

While looking at several early Robot Wars websites I've often seen his name consistently spelt "Sir Killerlot", such as here. Is it possibly worth adding this as an early name or something?

Also turns out that he was built from an industrial wheelbarrow. Guess what they say about learning something new everyday is true. StalwartUK 02:24, January 10, 2013 (UTC)

Is it possible that people didn't know the real spelling and they guessed incorrectly? Christophee (talk) 13:30, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
Seems too speculative for me, I'd pass MassiveDestruction49 (talk) 11:21, April 1, 2014 (UTC)on including the Killerlot trivia. The wheelbarrow trivia, if true, should definitely be included, however. ToastUltimatum 14:14, January 10, 2013 (UTC)

Killalot back? Edit

http://www.fightingrobots.co.uk/threads/12025-sir-killalot-has-been-bought-!?p=448827#post448827- will Killalot come back and re-enter Robot Wars? --WolfwingandSlaveLeia (talk) 10:15, April 1, 2014 (UTC)

I posted this on the Robot Wars Facebook Page, absolutely elated.... and then it turned out to be an April Fools' joke. Oh well, maybe one day. MassiveDestruction49 (talk) 11:21, April 1, 2014 (UTC)

Riotous Robots Edit

Does anyone own a copy of Riotous Robots? I think it would be good to scan the page on Sir Killalot and put it in the trivia section.

I used to own a copy, and I remember the section on Sir Killalot, but when I looked for my copy recently, I couldn't find it. Must have got rid of it years ago. Drop Zone mk2 (talk) 11:51, April 26, 2015 (UTC)

Well looking on Amazon, it wouldn't cost you much to get a new copy if you want one. StalwartUK 16:58, April 26, 2015 (UTC)
RiotousRobots
I found another copy - I hadn't been desperately searching or anything, I just got lucky in a charity shop. I was looking through the DVD racks, and noticed on the shelf below the DVDs they had a copy of Riotous Robots. I've scanned in the page about Sir Killalot. Interestingly, my copy dosen't mention the flamethrower - I guess it must be a later edition, where that error was corrected. Drop Zone mk2 (talk) 11:19, June 7, 2017 (UTC)

Picture for 2016 Edit

And finally a good picture of what Sir Killalot will look like...and I don't really like the face personally. http://i.imgur.com/cc9TnVa.jpg Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 11:40, June 19, 2016 (UTC)

OMG! He looks positively hideous!--Nononsensecapeesh (talk) 11:57, June 19, 2016 (UTC)
I have to say, it make sense for Sir Killalot to have a face like that, as it connotes his evil very well. I certainly expect nightmares for the children of today after seeing him for the first time. SpaceManiac888 (talk) 15:19, June 19, 2016 (UTC)
Didn't realize that China had bootlegged Robot Wars. --

A bit of fun... Edit

http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2016-07-24/an-interview-with-sir-killalot Radio Times have published an "interview" with Sir Killalot to coincide with the new series, is it worth just linking to as "An "Interview" with Sir Killalot" or is it non-canonical to such a degree it is not worth mentioning at all? --Voyanuitoa (talk) 12:35, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

It was clearly authorised by Robot Wars, as there's photos, so let's link to it. ToastUltimatum 12:38, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Sir Killalot as... a Patronus? Edit

Just noticed this cool image on BBC 2's Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/BBCTwo/status/779365576955326465

This makes me wonder about two things; first, should we add it to the article? And second of all, is this proof that a second season may eventually occur? After all, surely they wouldn't waste time making this if they didn' have any plans? SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 19:54, September 23, 2016 (UTC)

No and no. Jimlaad43(talk) 20:30, September 23, 2016 (UTC)
OK. I will just add it to my advertisement list, in that case. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 20:41, September 23, 2016 (UTC)
Nah, it's probably some silly fanmade thing. --Headbanger14/The Hardcore Kid 01:47, January 3, 2017 (UTC)
It's not fanmade, that's the official BBC Two Twitter. ToastUltimatum 01:51, January 3, 2017 (UTC)

MohicanEdit

Check out this pic, someone noticed that, in Heat B of Series 3, Sir Killalot had a Diotoir fur Mohican, something that has been unnoticed for 18 years. It has took HD to reveal it. Sam (BAZINGA) 01:31, January 3, 2017 (UTC)

I noticed it back during the GladiatorBoy days. All the house bots had a little bit of Diotoir fur at some point. --Headbanger14/The Hardcore Kid 01:46, January 3, 2017 (UTC)

This strange looking Sir Killalot Edit

Sirk bent back

Look at that back

Here's something weird. This Sir Killalot was present during filming but I noticed it had a weird back. In fact upon further examinations it may be a lifesize model. Thoughts?Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 16:23, December 7, 2018 (UTC)

This will be a model used to show off to the public, like a museum dinosaur which is actually just a cast of the bones, or a display model of a racing car that appears at events. That back will be like that to hide the fact it isn't the real thing, so the cage and internals aren't necessary to be seen. Good picture though! Jimlaad43(talk) 16:32, December 7, 2018 (UTC)
Definitely a model to me; the mesh isn't as prominent on the functioning Sir Killalot, and the jaws are missing the bolts and pivots that form the weapon mechanism. As Jimlaad says, likely a full-scale model used for promotional purposes when the real thing is unavailable for display. VulcansHowl 16:45, December 7, 2018 (UTC)
That's a replica of Sir Killalot. At the time of the classic series of Robot Wars, Mentorn had two sets of House Robots. A replica set that was used for displays, exhibitions at the filming and also were offered out for hire as well for special occasions and they had the real set which were the ones you saw on the TV. Liam Bryant (talk) 02:48, December 8, 2018 (UTC)

'Sir K' Edit

Given our stance on competitors with multiple versions of their names (e.g. Cataclysmic Variabot/C.V., Tomahawk/TMHWK), shouldn't we be using 'Sir K' when writing about Killalot's appearances in the Nickelodeon series? VulcansHowl 10:02, March 15, 2019 (UTC)

Yes, definitely. TOAST 12:43, March 15, 2019 (UTC)
