Craig and Toby Colliass also competed in the Chinese TV show, ''Clash Bots''. They did so with '''Excalibur''', a robot extremely similar to Gabriel, but painted black, with a golden hammer blade or fish-head shaped blade on the end of the weapon shaft. In its first battle, Excalibur defeated the bar spinner '''King of Ghost''' by hammering its top until the Chinese robot lost the use of one tyre, awarding the win by knockout to Excalibur. In the second round, it fought the vertical spinner of '''Catfish''', and delivered an overhead blow so powerful that Catfish was overturned. Excalibur repeatedly pounded the underside of Catfish, which could not self-right, and Excalibur won the battle by knockout. Presenter Peter also elected for Excalibur to represent him on his team, starting with a three-way battle aside from the main competition, against the Chinese '''Nightmare Strangler''' and the Brazilian '''Dark Wolf'''. Excalibur avoided the combat until Nightmare Strangler lost controlled movement, and withstood a blow from the vertical spinner of Dark Wolf before landing a hit on the immobile Nightmare Strangler. However, a strong hit from Dark Wolf immobilised Excalibur, and it lost the battle. Excalibur also participated in a battle to destroy a metal structure while avoiding House Robot-type machines such as [[Team Roaming Robots#Dominator|Dominator]], but '''Spicy Newt''' proved the most useful in completing the goal. Directly afterwards, Excalibur fought the American drum spinner in the main competition, and although Spicy Newt's weapon did not function in the battle, Excalibur could not strike the small and fast target, causing Team Saint to lose the Judges' decision. However, Excalibur was reinstated after '''Angry Frog''' withdrew from the competition, now joining Angelababy's team. It fought in a five-way melee, but lost the Judges' decision to '''Toxic Fangs''', despite Team Saint believing they had won the battle. After Zack Colliass joined the team as the new driver, Excalibur fought Toxic Fangs head-to-head and earned revenge by smashing its drone into pieces, and won the Judges' decision after landing repeated hits. Excalibur then faced a challenge where it would have to survive against horizontal spinner '''Brain Storm''', flipper '''Bull Devil''' and vertical spinner '''Egg Beater''' in three consecutive matches, each two minutes long. Excalibur survived the battle against Brain Storm, but not without losing drive to one wheel, which ultimately cost it against Bull Devil, which flipped Excalibur onto the arena wall for a KO. In an effort to earn a place in the Top 4, Excalibur faced Dark Wolf again, but became immobile after repeated hits from the vertical spinner. Excalibur also fought Spicy Newt for the second time, which now had a working drum. Team Saint learned from their previous battles, and landed more blows on Spicy Newt than in the previous encounter, winning the battle on a Judges' decision. Its place in the Top 4 was to be decided in a battle against Toxic Fangs, which also won a battle in the same round that Excalibur defeated Spicy Newt. Despite Toxic Fangs being immobile for nearly ten seconds, Excalibur lost the battle when it became stuck behind the grinder on the wall, and was finally eliminated in fifth place. Excalibur still fought in one last battle outside of the main competition, and lost to Brain Storm.

{{quote|All I would say is, a big thank you to everyone at Clash Bots, to all the celebrities, and yourself, and the guests as well, it's been great. A big thank you to my son Toby, who's done a brilliant job with the driving. He's only 15 years old, he's the youngest driver in Clash Bots, and to get this far is really something. Thank you.|Craig Colliass}}
