The One Show had a couple of segments on the new series this evening. Our robot was on the screen for almost a whole second :D

Oh yes, you have DisConstructor don't you? Can't wait to see it. I was disappointed when it crashed out so early 12 years ago

Yup it was good, although the format is a bit meh and the sound levels were not right . Still enjoyable

SUSPENDED! - I dont have the time/money to fully commit and I may have killed a motor and my NanoTwo :o !

I may give this another go at some point, but for now its over.

Just watched, was so excited, excellent show and congrats to everyone on the Nuts team, so likeable and great fun. It was unfortunate Terrorhurtz went out but great job getting Nuts back together, and Carbide were very good. Behemoth also did very well, better than it ever seemed to do in the original run of robot wars haha.

One of the cameras had a weird frame rate, which kept bugging me, but otherwise was great.

Loved it!

Noel Sharkey summed it up:
Terrorhurtz clearly won on damage and aggression, but for me the real star of the show was Nuts, because its control was beautiful, I mean it managed to last there for 3 minutes with a broken robot. That was astonishing.
:D

I imagine Antweights may have a bit of a revival when people search the net following the new series. We may see more people sign up to the forum in the next few weeks!
