Rejected Robots in Robot Wars and BattleBots
« on: December 02, 2018, 06:17:55 PM »
This is a topic where we talk about rejected robots in Robot Wars and BattleBots. First, we have Mr. Emoji. It was rejected for Robot Wars: Series 10.
Just look at me. Nobody wants to be my friend.

I never know that the bot Avalanche/LRA2 infamously called out existed earlier, and that it was entered to Series 10 (though rejected)

Aftershock (RW) was rejected from BattleBots Season 2 before it entered Series 9.

Pendragon, a front fringed flipper that failed to qualify for series 5 of robot wars.

Seems like a decent thing to link to rather than just posting random ones.

Only problem is that page covers Robot Wars, and that's it.

Double Jeopardy applied for Robot Wars: Series 10 and got rejected.
My parents punish me severely. I harass and stalk a girl because of this.

Mega Melvin, (which also competed in KOB as Blue), applied for series 9 and 10 of the Robot wars reboot, in which it was rejected. Footage of its application video can be seen in the Series 10 trailer.
If you are looking for someone who can make good robots, make good drawings, have support for you and will always be by your side, look somewhere else. The only time those things are associated with me is like all the time someone has associated reliability with Craig Danby.

All American teams (I think) and all uniquely visual robots. I’d honestly have rather seen them given at least a shot at fighting rather than the UK Robot Wars teams and their generic designs.
