Robot Combat League on SyFy - Are You Watching This TV Show? It's About Fighting Robots!


Posted March 8, 2014 - By EditorialUnit44385 .927

You may not have noticed, but the robot invasion continues to expand into our movies and TV shows. Case in point: Robot Combat League, a new competition show on SyFy that features human controlled robots battling for superiority. It’s basically Mattel’s Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots game (and/or the movie Reel Steel) come to life. WWF/E champ Chris Jericho hosts the show which airs every Tuesday night at 10/9c - and if you'd like a taste, check out this clip:

Really, if a show has robots in it, we're going to watch, but RCL has featured two of our favorites to date: Drone Strike and A.X.E.  Meet them in all their cybernetic glory after the jump.

If you were worried about drone strikes on US soil, wait until you get a load of Drone Strike! You’ll be praying for a drone strike to hit you rather than face this beast! Based on military grade hardware, Drone Strike pummels the competition with barrel weapons and counters opponent’s attacks with ballistic nylon armor and a strong center of gravity:

With an axe for a head, how can you not love A.X.E!?! Like something out of a nightmare, A.X.E. literally uses its axe head to bash opponent’s faces in. Nuff said right? Check out A.X.E. in axe-tion:

I assume most of you stopped reading somewhere around "human controlled robots" and skipped ahead to the video. So what'd you think?
