The Robot Wars live tour is constantly improving, and the 2016 seasonis set to be a record breaking year. Keeping an eye on the arena and the competitor robots are our two famous House Robots. You certainly wouldn’t want to meet either of them in a dark alley at night!
Matilda is one of the most iconic robots of all time, with her flashing eyes, lifting tusks, and rear spinning flywheel. Her good looks hide her destructive nature well.
