Robot Wars Returns to TV on July 24th

Three. Two. One. Activate. Actually, not quite yet. Robot Wars will return to our screens at 8pm on July 24th, slotting neatly into Top Gear’s usual BBC Two slot.

That’s the important stuff, now here’s a lovely trailer jam-packed with money shots.

There’ll be six episodes in the new series, which doesn’t require much of an introduction. Homemade robots beating the shit out of other homemade robots, while their creators try not to cry. Why was it ever taken off TV?

Oh, and the house robots have been given a serious makeover. New Sir Killalot would have old Sir Killalot for breakfast. No machine is safe. [Engadget]
