Bash Mute drove over Firestorm's wedge. When they recovered, Firestorm drove under Mute again and flipped them over. Mute self-righted, but then Firestorm flipped them again. The flip-crazy Mute was jumping around trying to self-right, but their flipper was so powerful, that they kept somersaulting right back upside-down. Firestorm then flipped Mute out of the arena. Poor Mute, silenced by the almighty Firestorm. Fight 2: Thermidor II Vs Typhoon 2 House Robots: Sir Killalot and Shunt Typhoon 2 were awesome in their heat, but they said their robot wasn't at its best yet... In the fight, Typhoon spun up to speed and Thermidor chased them around the arena for a bit. Typhoon then smacked into Thermidor and took off running. Thermidor was already dead...in just one hit! Typhoon spun the dead lobster into the CPZ. Shunt came in and axed Thermidor's shell. As we take a look on the Killalot and Refbot cameras, Sir Killalot comes in for a nibble and Refbot also came in to count Thermidor out. Oh dear. Then Sir Killalot came in and it was time to make lobster soup. Step 1: Roast lobster on flame pit. Step 2: Put lobster on floor flipper and throw it into the air. Step 3: Wash it throughly in washing machine. No wait. Drop the washing machine on the lobster! Step 4: Wait until Cease is called and you're ready to eat! Bon Appitete, my friend. Typhoon 2, after having some lobster, you're through to the next round! Fight 3: Storm II Vs Grim Reaper House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Shunt Storm II slammed Grim Reaper into the wall and tried to lift theim out of the arena, but to no avail. Grim Reaper escaped and tried to get under Storm II and flip them, but Storm's side skirts prevented them from flipping them over. Storm then slammedf Grim Reaper into another wall, then another, but Grim Reaper wouldn't go out of the arena!! Sgt. Bash set Grim Reaper alight as Storm slammed them into the Pit Button! Shunt axed Grim Reaper and Storm. Storm II is furious! They slammed Grim Reaper into the wall again and one of the angle grinder panels flew off! Storm then pushed Grim Reaper into Sgt. Bash, who dug his claw right into the Grim Reaper! Storm then slammed Grim Reaper into Shunt and Shunt's smoke stack flew right off! Storm II is destroying everything in its path! Storm II lifted Grim Reaper up and Shunt, now in old age and falling apart, axed Grim Reaper. Grim Reaper self-righted and Storm slammed them into the wall one last time. Cease was called. Storm II totally won. Fight 4: M2 Vs Atomic House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Matilda M2 drove up Atomic's flipper and were flipped. Atomic flipped M2 a few times, but M2 self-righted after every flip. M2 then flipped Atomic into the guardrail and nearly out! But Atomic escaped and continued flipping M2. Eventually Atomic flipped M2 into the wall, but not out. Atomic then flipped M2 out of the arena at the last minute. Atomic goes through! Eliminator 1: Storm II Vs Firestorm V House Robots: Growler and Matilda Two storms of absolute rage. Storm flew over Firestorm's flipper, then slammed Firestorm into the wall. Firestorm got under Storm a few times, but couldn't flip them. Storm then pushed Firestorm into the Pit Button. Firestorm's flipper blade was bent so now they couldn't get under them. Storm then pushed Firestorm right into the Pit! The #16 seeds had beaten the #2 seeds! Oh no! Firestorm's out! Storm II's through to the Grand Final! Eliminator 2: Atomic Vs Typhoon 2 House Robots: Cassius Chrome and Sir Killalot Atomic got under Typhoon and were THIS close to flipping them. Atomic then tried to flip Typhoon out of the arena, but they missed their shot, slammed into the angle grinders and flipped themselves over! The tables have turned! Atomic was stuck upside-down and venting gas. Typhoon 2 then cranked their spinning power up to full speed and SLAMMED into Atomic so hard that sparks flew everywhere!! Then Typhoon slammed into Atomic again, spinning at over 150 mph! THIS IS SWEET! Typhoon's spinning motor was deafening! Even the audience had to hold their ears due to the loud sound! Typhoon smacked into Atomic again! This isn't just sweet, it's awesome!! Refbot counted poor Atomic out. Sir Killalot then buried his lance into Atomic and carried him onto the floor flipper. Atomic flew through the air and Sir Killalot pitted them. Typhoon 2 is awesome!!! And they still haven't reached top spinning speed!!! They're through to the Grand Final! Grand Finalists: Tornado, X-Terminator, Storm II and Typhoon 2 What storms we're having!moreless
