Robots Live! will be at the Chase Leisure Centre in Cannock on October 15 and 16 - for the first time - as part of their UK tour.

Joining Apollo will be other famous faces from the new and old series of Robot Wars, including; TR2, Eruption, Gabriel and Behemoth.

They will all be battling to be crowned the Robots Live! champion.

Joining the competitors in the arena will be the organiser's very own House Robots.

Dave Young, captain of Team Apollo said: “After winning the new series of Robot Wars, we can't wait to get in the arena again and fight in front of a live audience at Robots Live!

"Not only does it give our the fans a chance to see the action up close, it gives us another house robot to attack!"

Keeping control of the 110kg heavyweights, will be 'Goliath', weighing in at 1000kg and standing at 5ft tall, it is capable of rolling over a car with its powerful crushing arm and tracked drive.

While 'BattleAxe', which weighs in at 130kg, looks after the 13.6kg featherweight robots.

As well as the combat machines, the show also features unique robot boxers at 6ft tall.

During the shows, people will get the glimpse of some of the other famous TV and movie robots, with a Dalek expected to interrupt the show at some point.

All of the action is housed safely in a purpose built 6000kg arena.

The arena is equipped with its own array of weapons including The Pit, floor flipper and two massive hammers which are controlled by the audience.

There will be three action packed shows over the weekend.

Shows are at 6pm on Saturday (October 15) and 12pm and 3.30pm on Sunday (October 16).
