All Star Championship
AIRED:
Robot Wars is nearing its end, but before we move on to the World Championship and the end of Robot Wars, we should have a tribute to all the robots that we've loved over the years. How? By having an All-Star competition! Who will be the new All-Star Champion? We'll find out! Firestorm V From: County Durham Weight: 94 Kilos Dimensions: 0.33M X 1.10M X 0.93M Power: 3KW Electric Motor Weapons: Flipper Strengths: Fast and Manouverable Weaknesses: 2 Wheel Drive Only Team Captain: Graham Bone With: Hazel Haslop Panic Attack Weight: 99 Kilos Dimensions: 0.33M X 1.36M X 0.93M Power: 750W Electric Motors Weapons: Lifter and Ramming Spikes Strengths: Battle Experience Weaknesses: New Driver Team Captain: Kevin Pritchard With: Jamie McGarry and Paul Wyers Kat III From: Surrey Weight: 98 kilos Dimensions: 1.16M X 1.25M X 0.82M Power: 2 X 1000W Electric Motors Weapons: Pnumatic Axe Strengths: Strong Armor Weaknesses: Driver Team Captain: Keith Williams With: Georje and Julie-Ann Williams Bigger Brother From: Sussex Weight: 98 Kilos Dimensions: 0.34M X 0.77M X 0.94M Power: 2 X 750W Electric Motors Weapons: Spiked Co2 Powered Flipper Strengths: Bullet-Proof Construction Weaknesses: None Team Captain: Joe Watts With: Ian and Ellie Watts King B Powerworks From: Hampshire Weight: 97 Kilos Demensions: 0.28M X 1.01M X 0.78M Power: 2 X 1500W Electric Motors Weapons: Spinning Disc and Spikes Strengths: Fast and Tough Weaknesses: High Ground Clearence Team Captain: Simon Harrison With: Grant Hornsby Dantomkia From: Surrey Weight: 96 Kilos Dimensions: 0.36M X 1.18M X 0.83M Power: 2 X 750W Electric Motors Weapons: Co2 Flipper Strengths: Reliability Weaknesses: Nervous Driver Team Captain: Michael Lambert With: Daniel Lambert and Steven Gadsey Behemoth From: Hartfordshire Weight: 100 Kilos Demensions: 0.62M X 1.05M X 0.65M Weapons: Pnumatic Flipper and Axe Strengths: 6 Wheel Drive Weaknesses: Falls into Pit Too Often Team Captain: Andrew Pritchard With: Michael Pritchard and Kane Ashton Pussycat From: Worsteshire Weight: 100 Kilos Dimensions: 0.55M X 0.91M X 0.72M Power: 3 X 750W Electric Motors Weapons: Rotating Blade Strengths: Invertible Weaknesses: Only Has 9 Lives Team Captain: Stuart Barnwell With: Amanda and Roger Barnwell Fight 1: Kat III Vs Firestorm V Vs Panic Attack Vs Bigger Brother House Robots: Shunt and Cassius Chrome This fight was interesting in many ways: 1: Panic Attack were up against their arch rivals, Firestorm. 2: Bigger Brother were up against their ex-Tag Team Partners, Kat III. 3: Firestorm had beaten Bigger Brother in the last All Star Championship. 4: Panic Attack had beaten Kat III in Series 5 5: They didn't go after each other. Instead, they went after the House Robots! It was pretty much Joe Watts' idea. When Jayne interviewed him, Joe said that they were going to take on Shunt, Matilda, Sir Killalot, Mr. Psycho, Growler or whoever was in that fight. "House Robots, your days are over!" At The start of the fight, the 4 competitiors, led by the ultimate House Robot Killer, Firestorm, drove into the CPZ and Firestorm flipped Shunt! Now, once a competitior has done that, usually they would just leave them alone. Not this time! They continued banging on Shunt until Refbot came in to assist the House Robot. Cassius pushed Kat III out of the CPZ. Firestorm then got underneath Cassius and tried to flip him! Oh, but of all the other House Robots Firestorm has knocked out in the past, Cassius Chrome was just too heavy. Refbot pressed the Pit Button. Bigger Brother drove over the opening Pit! However, they escaped at the last possible second. Refbot was the robot who ended up in the Pit! HA! Fortunately for the Ref, the Pit was raised back up and he was able to recover. Meanwhile Firestorm and Panic Attack were trying again and again to flip the 500 pound Cassius Chrome over. But they just couldn't. The floor flipper went off, but that was useless. Kat III then axed Cassius a few times and his eye popped out, blinding the poor House Robot. Cassius was totalled. Bigger Brother and Panic Attack lifted Cassius up and tried to get him out of the arena, but that was virtually impossible. Bigger Brother and Firestorm then got tired of taking on Cassius and tried to flip Shunt out of the arena. However, Bigger Brother's flipper was low on Co2. They would have had a real chance to flip Shunt out of the arena. So, Bigger Brother tried to flip Refbot! Still not enough. Meanwhile, a washing machine from the Drop Zone fell down on...well, nothing. Refbot drove over to Shunt (who was making some sort of breathing sound) He's upside down after all! Time had expired, but there was no clear winner here. Panic Attack and Bigger Brother tried to push Cassius down the Pit. What happened next was shocking. Firestorm tried to slam Refbot into the Pit, but then missed and the best machine in the Competition (who ironically didn't do a thing in this fight) drove down the Pit! Oh no! Hazel, maybe you should find a different person to marry! Ellie Watts from the Bigger Brother team shrugged to the camera. If the competitiors could push Refbot down the Pit again, maybe the staff would raise the Pit back up and let Firestorm go! However, their plans were foiled. Kat III axed Bigger Brother by accident. The truce has thrown out the window! The House Robots were already totalled, so the competitiors did what they should have done before this fight started, fight each other! Kat III pressed the Pit Button. Hello? There's already a machine in the Pit! Bigger Brother tried to push Kat III down the Pit, but they messed up and ended up driving themselves in!! Oh, the 2 best flippers in the competition have been eliminated! The unlikely winners of this unusual fight were Kat III and Panic Attack! Fight 2: Dantomkia Vs Pussycat Vs Behemoth Vs King B Power Works House Robots: Matilda and Sir Killalot The fight started out with the 4 competitiors hitting each other a bit. Dantomkia then pushed Behemoth into the CPZ and effortlessly chucked Behemoth right out of the arena! Pussycat and Dantomkia ganged up on King B, pushing him around and clawing him a bit. Dantomkia then flipped King B out of the arena as well! Dantomkia and Pussycat move on to Round 2! Fight 3: Dantomkia Vs Panic Attack House Robots: Growler and Dead Metal The Panic Attack boys were happy about beating their rivals, Firestorm for the first time. However, they now had to face off against another flipper: Dantomkia. Panic Attack didn't really stand a chance in this fight. The arena floor was like an ice rink because in the previous fight, Sir Killalot had a little accident. Panic Attack got under Dantomkia a few times, but then Dantomkia got under Panic Attack and flipped them. Panic Attack no longer had their self-righting lid that they had used in previous wars. They were done. The words "Hello, Mum" were painted on Panic Attack's underbelly. Dantomkia then chucked Panic Attack clean out of the arena. And just when you thought that first All Star battle was pants, it happened again. Dantomkia had a go at the House Robots. Growler and Dead Metal were two of the meanest robots in the warzone...but that was about to change. Dantomkia lifted Dead Metal up. Dead Metal tried to saw through Dantomkia, but he escaped. Dantomkia then lifted Dead Metal up onto the gaurdrail. HA! Poor Dead Metal was begging for mercy! Growler tried to help Dead Metal, but seemed to be too scared to go near Dantomkia! What a watchdog he is. Dead Metal was too wide to flip over, but he was taking a pounding. Eventually Dead Metal and Growler stopped moving and it's obvious, isn't it? They're dead! Refbot gave Dantomkia a yellow card. Dantomkia pressed the Pit Button, but Cease was called and Dantomkia moves on to the All Star Final! Fight 4: Kat III Vs Pussycat House Robots: Sir Killalot and Shunt The grudges don't stop. It was now a catfight between Kat III and Pussycat. These two robots met in the Iron Maiden competition. Pussycat obviously won. As the fight started, both robots colided and Kat III started axing the arena floor. Kat III then hit Pussycat and something flew off of one of the robots. Pussycat got a few good blows on Kat III, bending the wedge and scratching the paint. Kat's axe came down a few times, but kept missing. Then they pressed the Pit Button. Pussycat continued scratching Kat a few more times. Kat's axe rod landed on Pussycat, but the knife kept missing Pussycat. Eventually the knife was bent. Cease! was called. Pussycat won and moved on to the All Star Final to meet Dantomkia. All Star Final: Dantomkia Vs Pussycat House Robots: Mr. Psycho and Cassius Chrome Dantomkia got under Pussycat and pushed them around the arena and into the guardrail, nearly flipping them out! Dantomkia then flipped Pussycat into Mr. Psycho. Dantomkia then tried to flip Pussycat out, but just couldn't. Pussycat then buried his tooth into Dantomkia's backend and pressed the Pit Button. Dantomkia wasn't moving. Pussycat tried to push Dantomkia down the Pit, but it's known for its poor pushing power. Pussycat then decided to have a go at Cassius Chrome! Oh no, he's been through enough already. Why take him on? Cassius buried his pincers into Pussycat and pushed him onto the flame pit. Refbot counted Dantomkia out as Pussycat was ripping Mr. Psycho's front apart. Cassius Chrome had been known for being the weakest of the House Robots, but after his K.O. in the first fight, it's Eye of the Tiger as Cassius SLAMMED Pussycat right into the guardrail. Mr. Psycho came in and ended up hitting Cassius right in the face! Cassius gave Mr. Psycho a long evil stare. Mr. Psycho is no longer the greatest of the House Robots, Cassius Chrome is! He floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee-capitator and is the greatest! He ordered Mr. Psycho to push Dantomkia down the Pit and he did, but not before Pussycat followed! Pussycat are the new All Star Champions!moreless
