In no particular order, I voted for:

1. Aftershock -- Landed tons of solid blows last series and it took Carbide to literally shear its armor off and throw it through the wall to stop it. I'm thinking back to how utterly demolished Aftershock left Sabretooth last series and it looks like there's a lot of opportunities to do it again this time around.
2. Terrorhurtz -- I feel like John Reid has been long overdue to come up out from behind and surprise everyone. Supposedly its armor has been upgraded to something 1.2 cm thick? In any case it's beaten Carbide before and with the right driving skill can do it again. Beta was all over Tombstone at BattleBots.
3. Eruption -- Voted in because it was last series' runner-up. IMO, Eruption is a better flipper than Apollo and has a better driver, better armor, and overall a better design. Carbide vs. Eruption was very close and with the modified tournament setup for this series I think it could go all the way.
4. Carbide -- Obligatory re-vote for the current champion for no real reason. We're also currently living in the age of the horizontal spinner where bots like Carbide and Tombstone are dominating the scene.
5. Donald Thump -- WILL MEME MAGIC STRIKE AGAIN?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

SPOILERS FOR THE TRAILER

Speaking of Aftershock, I wonder why Ian Thomas (the father of the driver) was sad? Could something had happened to their robot or could it been the producers?
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH

Why you don't put Spoiler Tag?

I vote Carbide for a win.

Eight new videos up on the BBC program page, but the robotwars.tv website remains blissfully untouched. (Aside from the competitors menu which is a bit wonky.)

1. Meet Donald Thump.
2. Meet Expulsion.
3. Meet Nuts 2.
4. Meet Rapid.
5. Meet Thor.
6. Meet Aftershock.
7. Meet Eruption.
8. SPOILER ALERT: Clip from Apollo vs The Swarm vs Apocalypse.
