Great show about Robots
27 May 1999 | by (Zaandam, Holland) – See all my reviews

It's a great show, robots fighting each other. Then there are the house robots... very strong robots. All robots have to move through a course and fight each other, at the end of the show there's a finale. The best robot's are fighting each other and the house robots are also there.
