This piece of machine is a killer.

I have seen this beast myself. It is going to be a slaughter.

Yes, it is rather wicked isn't it.

BBC Choice is pretty well known. I will try and record it, and see if we can get it turned into an MPEG for our web viewers

Fear not mr Bhalla. Series VI will be screened later in the year on BBC 2.

Yeah it was a bit of a damp squib. Some of the robots we disabled in qualifying got quite far on TV.

Our weapon stopped working on the first hit to 259. We dont know why cos it got really mullered after that.

We've been invited back to do Robotwars Extreme soon, It's a special university challenge edition, so we will be there representing Imperial. Shame we don't have enough money for spare anything. College come fourth (hint hint), or we'll promote the comma!
