    Is Chaos 2 coming back?
    No, the team have confirmed they're not entering a robot. Chaos 2 itself has been more or less retired since the Robot Wars Extreme 2, when its chassis got wrecked by Mr. Psycho. Even before that it was starting to show its age - I doubt many of the flippers from back then could compete with the new generation of robots. :no:

    Full list of which robots are competing, and in which heat (so don't click if you'd rather it was a surprise!)

    http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2016-...the-new-series

    My predictions for each heat
    Episode 1 - Depends who faces who first. Terrorhurtz could probably take Behemoth, which could probably beat Razer, which could beat Terrorhurtz.

    Episode 2 - Thor

    Episode 3 - Dantomkia

    Episode 4 - Eruption or Storm 2

    Episode 5 - Beast

    Wildcard will probably be the heat final loser from ep 1 or 4.

    Heard about this ages ago, super psyched to finally get some footage.

    Looked like Dara O'Briain will be presenting instead of Craig Charles. Glad they kept the old house robots though, hopefully we see some updates of old favourites. Hypno Disk anyone?

    I'm really excited for this. I was going to start a thread yesterday.

    Anyone answer me this question- Are the (modified) House Robots, the original models?
    Or are they rebuild?

    I'm really worried they have taken the original models and updated them. Who should I email?

    I just bought the board game - it's bloody brilliant. I remember this from when I was little. My younger brother and I were bloodthirsty (or oilthirsty X3) little demons!

    No I don't think so. I mean sometimes things did go wrong- controllers not working for instance but I don't think it was staged.

    Sometimes the rules were bent a little for certain robots and the House Robots sometimes attacked robots more so than the others.

    Parts of the Seventh Wars were horrendously fixed, as the producers didn't want a certain competitor (Storm II) to win, but barring a few low points like that, the first run was not staged. Hopefully nothing in the reboot will be.

    At least Jonathan Pearce is back. Robot Wars wouldn't be the same without him.

    Not this year, I'm afraid (not enough time to update their 13 year old robot), but the team have stated they're interested in returning for later series.

    That's good to hear. I'd be happy to see any of the old robots. Stinger, Thermidor, Firestorm, Panic Attack and so on. Especially since a good number of teams had kids helping out or even piloting. Would be cool to see some of the kids grown up and working on the robots themselves.

    Rebuild I believe, they look nothing like the originals.

    Thermidor 2 will be there, looking more evil than previously.

    Stinger isn't in the lineup for this year, but they're still around (if a bit rusty and tired-looking) - there are plenty of videos of them on Youtube competing in recent events.
