AIRED:
The Series Semi-Finals! Which 2 robots will advance to the Grand Final? Wild Thing From: Hampshire Seated #9 Weight: 97 Kilos Dimensions: 0.40M X 0.93M X 0.91M Power: 2 X 375W Motors Weapons: Vertical Cutting Disc Strengths: Experienced Competitior Weaknesses: Exposed Tyres Team Captain: Nick Adams With: Isabelle Adams Razer Seated: #1 and Reining Champion Weight: 96 Kilos Dimensions: 0.55M X 1.10M X 0.63M Power: 2 X 1000W Electric Motors Weapons: Spike Strengths: Nimble and Very Accurate Weaknesses: Slow Self-Righting Team Captain: Ian Lewis With: Simon Scott and Vincent Blood 13 Black From: Leichestershire Weight: 100 Kilos Dimensions: 1.66M X 0.39M X 0.66M Power: 2 X 750W Motors Weapons: 2 X 750mm Steel Blades Strengths: Speed and Weapons Weaknesses: Radio Response Team Captain: John Denny With: Richard Morris and Ken Wilson Firestorm IV From: Durham Seated: #3 Weight: 100 Kilos Dimensions: 0.36M X 1.10M X 0.83M Power: Electric Motors Weapons: Pneumatic Flipper Strengths: Excellent Manoeuverability Weaknesses: 2 Wheel Drive Team Captain: Graham Bone With: Hazel Haslop S3 Seated #7 Weight: 98 Kilos Dimensions: 0.75M X 0.95M X 1.25M Power: 2 X 750W Motors Weapons: Steel Discs Strengths: Destructive Weapon Weaknesses: Aluminum Armor Team Captain: Dave Barker With: Pete Allsop and Ian Pritchard Dantomkia From: Surrey Weight: 100 Kilos Dimensions: 0.36M X 1.20M X 0.80M Power: 2 X 750W Motors Weapons: Powerful Flipper Strengths: Very Agile Weaknesses: Nervous Driver Team Captain: Michael Lambert With: Daniel Lambert and Steven Gadsby Fight 1: Wild Thing Vs Razer House Robots: Growler and Sgt. Bash No surprise here. Razer simply dug his spike right into Wild Thing. Wild Thing escaped and the two robots drove side by side. Wild Thing's disc wasn't working effectively as Razer buried his claw into Wild Thing again. Wild Thing escaped once more, but then Razer grabbed hold of them again and buried his claw right into Wild Thing's wheel. Both robots started spinning madly in place. Sgt. Bash set Razer alight as Wild Thing escaped, but they were losing control of their robot. Razer grabbed hold of Wild Thing one last time. They pushed them into the Pit Button and lowered them into the Pit. Razer moves on! Fight 2: 13 Black Vs Firestorm IV House Robots: Sir Killalot and Shunt 13 Black slammed right into Firestorm, but then Firestorm got under 13 Black, pushed them around a bit and flipped them right over, hurling them into the angle grinders! 13 Black didn't have a srimech. Unlucky for some, unlucky for 13 Black. They were still wiggling, but it was useless. Then suddenly, it was Firestorm's turn to get unlucky. As they were aiming up to ram and flip 13 Black out of the arena, they miscalculated and drove right up onto the wall and they too got stuck. Refbot helped Firestorm off the wall, but with driving skills like Graham Bone's, fighting against a robot with an unlucky name got him stuck on top of the angle grinders again. 13 Black scurried away on its flywheels as Refbot helped Firestorm off of the grinders. Firestorm then recovered and flipped 13 Black up against the wall. It was Firestorm's old "up against the arena wall" trick. You'd be unlucky to be part of that! Refbot counted the unlucky 13 Black out. Cease was called. 13 Black was unlucky in this fight, but they might be lucky in the Loser's Melee. Fight 3: Dantomkia Vs S3 House Robots: Sir Killalot and Sgt. Bash Dantomkia drove over to S3 and tried to flip them, but they just couldn't get an angle on the weird-shaped robot. They flipped them over once...but then got wedged underneath the angle grinders. Dantomkia was stuck. Refbot and Sgt. Bash freed Dantomkia, but now they were dead. Refbot counted Dantomka out. Sir Killalot grabbed hold of Dantomkia as Sgt. Bash pressed the Pit Button. Sir Killalot then dropped Dantomkia down the Pit. S3 moves on! Fight 4: Losers' Melee: Wild Thing Vs 13 Black Vs Dantomkia House Robots: Sir Killalot and Dead Metal This had to be the most entertaining fight in the Series Semi-Finals! Dantomkia shoved a bouncing Wild Thing into the CPZ. Dantomkia, Wild Thing and 13 Black started playing "Ring Around Sir Killalot", spinning wildly! Dantomkia slammed 13 Black into the arena wall, flipping them right over! Dantomkia, Dead Metal and Wild Thing drove into the CPZ and Dead Metal seperated Wild Thing and Dantomkia. The House Robots were in over their heads as they started penetrating Wild Thing and 13 Black. Dantomkia pressed the Pit Button and Wild Thing, who was simply driving away of the action, fell right down the Pit, ending their career! Refbot moved in to count 13 Black out. 13 Black was scurrying away on their flywheels in an effort to show Refbot that they were still mobile! HA HA! It's not working! 13 Black was spinning madly upside-down. Dantomkia joined 13 Black in a little Do-Si-Do. After that little dance, they tried to flip 13 Black out of the arena, but then 13 Black escaped...rightside-up this time. 13 Black then slammed into Refbot! They were spinning madly again and when Dantokia moved in for another strike, they got caught under the grinder...again! Sir Killalot freed them and then Dantomkia flipped 13 Black over again and slammed them into the arena wall. After all this, CEASE was called. Dantomkia was the obvious winner of this fantastic fight. Fight 5: Firestorm IV Vs S3 House Robots: Dead Metal and Matilda Firestorm was just too fast for S3. Firestorm shoved S3 around the arena for a bit, then flipping them into the arena wall, and pretty much destroyed it. Firestorm then flipped S3 into the Disc Button and S3 fell head over heals out of the arena! This fight was over in just 24 seconds! Firestorm is through to the Grand Final! Fight 6: Razer Vs Dantomkia House Robots: Sir Killalot and Mr. Psycho Aw, crap. You're up against the World Champions and the House Robots in this fight are Sir Killalot and Mr. Psycho?! Oh, whoa is you, Dantomkia. Razer simply dug his claw into Dantomkia, but the newbies fought back, pushing Razer into the arena wall. Razer then continued buring his claw into Dantomkia and pushing them into Mr. Psycho. The hammer glanced off of Dantomkia. Dantomkia then pushed Razer into Sir Killalot as time ran out. The judges decided that Razer would be moving on to the Grand Final with Firestorm. 19 battles won in a row. An impressive number for Razer, but how will they do in the Grand Final. Will they win the competition again like Chaos 2 did, or will they retire to grim defeat?moreless
