Series 9 subjective rankings
The best possible introduction to this new series. Brutalised everything, including the arena, and took its beatings when it had to.
Just beautiful. Pushing the envelope, even if it does go a bit too far, and I always love drums.
Form and function. The repairs to the drum were also absolutely exceptional.
The only ‘classic’ bot which is still truly effective.
What a first effort.
People’s champion. Well designed with constraints in mind.
Shouldn’t really be this high but MELTYBRAINS!
I can’t justify this one, I just love it.
FOXIC’S DAY WILL COME. FEAR HIM.
Different and brutal. Killed my 10th favourite robot.
A great idea. Would be top 10 but it let me down.
Love the armour but, again…let me down.
Was excited for the weapon but: Let. Me. Down.
Only this high because I felt it had to be top half.
Forgettable but involved in some great fights.
It’s Behemoth – show some respect!
Probably should be higher. Tenacious.
A shadow of its former self but I do love axes and hammers.
Push to Exit
Front hinge good. Removable link bad.
Entering took some balls. Glad it didn’t get wrecked.
Even though it was a let down, it got me excited for the series.
M.R. Speed Squared
Lots of excitement but as a V2 I expect better from it.
A neat weapon idea executed decently but otherwise lacking
As much as I like axes, it did nothing.
Great idea but: REMOVABLE LINK!
No strong feelings either way. Inoffensive.
No improvement from last time.
The kind of thing I feel I should like but just kinda bland.
I respect the build quality but the lack of effective weaponry knocks it down the order.
A good live tour robot and a different kind of flipper, but just felt out of place.
I should be rating it higher, yet I’m not.
Crackers ‘n’ Smash
Fell apart in mid air.
Runt of the litter Gabriel came from pushing a wheelbarrow.
