Just wanted to try something. I remember seeing it premiere on Channel Ten during the... early-mid noughties at... I think 7-8pm. Then it got shafted into the 6am slot then vanished off the air altogether while broadcasting midway through the third series (they started with series 4).

Firestorm was my hero.

OMG Cynic...I remember this show. I don't know why, but I enjoyed it back then.

My favourite robot was Razer. Was the best robot, but was very unlucky most of the time. I also liked Tornado. I got sick of that Chaos 2 flipping everybody out of the arena though.

Youtube is our friend for nostalgia. Damn Razer, always skewered Firestorm in their fights... Chaos 2 did get boring but got pwned in future series because the owners couldn't afford to upgrade.

Yeah...it was good to see Razer win the championship at least once though. It deserved it.

Firestorm was one of the best robots never to win the championship.

Probably THE most consistent robot to never win the big one, although they got the Commonwealth Carnage competition. Series 4 really pissed me off. I hate Dominator 2.

Used to love that show. Don't remember much about it, only waking up early to watch it Smile

It was an awesome show. They should bring it back, BUT if they do they better not wreck the good memories.

Dominator 2 was the gold one with the axe, right?
If so...their team was really up themselves.

A few months ago, I was watching videos of the last series they made (Series 7), and there was a robot called Storm...it was simply awesome.

Storm beat Firestorm as well. Hate 'em.

I'm tempted to make a Robot Wars Simulation game but dunno how to go about it. I don't own any games but I could use randomisers or coin tosses and make up results...
