Team Reptirron was a team of roboteers that originated in Series 4 of Robot Wars, before fighting in Series 6 and 7 with a new machine, also competing in the second series of Extreme.
Team Reptirron was captained by Gordon Townley, who competed in all of the team's appearances. He was joined by various members of his family, as well as Peter Seabourne.
The team's original machine was called Reptirron, a bronze armoured robot with a circular saw on an arm, before being succeeded by Reptirron The Second, also a bronze (but later clear) armoured robot with a large high-pressure flipper and a smaller circular saw.
Team Reptirron did not perform too well with their heavyweight machine, with Reptirron only ever winning one out of four battles (that one win was actually a melee, where another robot also qualified).
The team did have significantly more success with their featherweight machine called Argh!, which won the Featherweight Championship in the second series of Extreme.
The team also go by the name Kinforesters.

Outside Robot WarsEdit
After Robot Wars ended, the team fought with Reptirron the Second and Argh! during the live events in 2004. Argh! was retired due to there not being many arenas safe enough for spinners while Reptirron the Second was showing signs of fatigue and was also retired.
In 2005, the team built a second featherweight, a six-wheel drive pusher called Stiff Breeze, which won the 2005 UK Featherweight Championship, three years after Team Reptirron had earned the title with Argh! In 2008, they purchased Tilly's Revenge from Team Tilly which they redesigned to have front-hinge flipper and renamed it to Hortron. They also fought with it in the 2008 UK Championships reaching the quarter-finals where they lost to Iron-Awe 5 and also the 2009 UK Championships. But it was retired after an encounter with Terrorhurtz.
