Appetite For Destruction- The Robot Wars robots are still alive... Touring the UK with the robots from the hit TV show.
About Roaming Robots
The company comprises of a number of unique individuals who have all taken part on the hit TV show Robot Wars.
They have all enjoyed building robots and competing in the fighting robots community for many years, however they decided it was time to give something back by providing a live tour which enables the fans of the show to see the action live rather than sitting at home watching it on TV.
Until you have felt the floor vibrate when 100kg of robot is thrown in the air by the arena flipper, or the thud of 20kg hammer of doom hitting another robot, you don't realise just how big, ferocious and deadly these machines really are.
The company's success is not only due to the hard work and determination of the crew, but also down to one main key person, namely our Director John Findlay. Having graduated from Coventry University with a Beng Automotive Engineering Design degree, it was John who decided to take the plunge and start Roaming Robots and is mainly responsible for the continued interest of the UK Fighting Robots.
During the 10 year spell of working in the entertainment industry he has been involved in many different projects and TV shows. Guinness World record highest popping toaster, BBC2 - Robot Wars, BBC3 - Mechanoids, BBC - Geronimo, BBC -Epic Win, Sky 1 - Gadget Geeks, are just a few.
2011 saw the investment the company needed and now Trevor Bratty, John's business partner has taken the company to the next level including a show at the O2.
Some of the first toy robots appeared around the 1940's after the war. It is believed that one of them is the Boxy - Lilliput, a yellow clockwork robot from Japan.
(however, this robot possibly could have been manufactured closer to the late 30's rather than the 40's)
It is the robot toy that tops a many collectors wanted list.
