Bash and Sir Killalot Adam Clarke's 259 robot was the one to watch out for in this heat. It had a spinning disc (quite similar to BattleBots' Nightmare that totaly made parts out of Infinity and Infernal Contraption. Infinity's claws were bent out of shape, but then they pressed the Pit Button. Suddenly, Infinity was spun into the Pit by Aggrobot, who was also on its last legs. 259 then attacked Infernal Contraption, ripping them up and hurling pieces around the arena. Infernal Contraption was totally demolished. They drove themselves into the Pit with Infinity, trying to make room. The Pit had to be the safest place to avoid 259, and it was. Refbot counted Infernal Contraption out. Cease was called 259 and Aggrobot move on! Fight 2: The Stag Vs UFO Vs Wild Thing (seated #9) Vs Vader House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Sir Killalot There was no escaping the vertical discs. Vader hit Stag's side, causing the rubber on their wheel to fall off. Stag was trapped in the CPZ, grabbing hold of Wild Thing. The chicken also fell off of Stag. Sir Killalot picked Stag up and spun around and around before nearly falling over. UFO hit the Pit Button and Vader and Wild Thing attacked UFO once more. Meanwhile Refbot was counting out the dead Stag. When the clock reached 10, Sir Killalot held up the chicken and showed it to the camera. "Anyone for fried chicken?" The Stag was then pushed into the Pit by UFO. Time ran out and it went to the judges. Vader and Wild Thing go through. Fight 3: Aggrobot 3 Vs Vader House Robots: Matilda and Dead Metal All it took was one glancing blow from Vader to knock Aggrobot out cold. Dead Metal sawed through Aggrobot's paint job. Refbot counted out Aggrobot. Matilda pressed the Pit Button and the House Robots pushed Aggrobot into the Pit. Vader moves on to the Heat Final. Fight 4: 259 Vs Wild Thing House Robots: Dead Metal and Matilda Wild Thing was getting flipped over and over and over by 259's disc. 259 seamed to be completely ahead of this fight...until another impact ripped off a belt...the belt to the spinning disc. 259 disc was no longer dangerous. Immediately, the New Kid on the Block pressed the Pit Button. Wild Thing, throughout the rest of the fight, kept ramming 259 until eventually they stopped moving. CEASE! The judges decided to let Wild Thing through. Everybody booed. Even Phillipa had to talk to Professor Noel Sharkey to tell them to let 259 through. It was no use. The #9 seeds still goes through to face Vader in the Heat Final. Heat Final: Vader Vs Wild Thing House Robots: Shunt and Sir Killalot Both robots colided and started pushing each other around, ripping parts of their armor off with their cutting discs. Both robots drove into the CPZ and Shunt axed Vader. Vader's disc had stopped. A close-up of the robots reveiled that one of Vader's disc teeth had been shot straight into Wild Thing's front. Refbot seperated the two robots. Both discs colided again. Vader and Wild Thing drove onto the flame pit. Wild Thing drove off, but Vader...just sat there. But then they started moving again, but not to get away from Wild Thing who pushed them into Shunt. Shunt axed Vader again. Then, another axe blow stopped Vader's disc. Vader was then pushed around the arena and back into Shunt, who lifted them up. Wild Thing pushed Vader into Shunt again. Vader got out of the CPZ and pressed the Pit Button just as time ran out. The judges decided to let the #9 seeds, Wild Thing go through to the Series Semi-Finals. How many judges' decisions is that?moreless
