Robot History Edit
In Heat L of the Third Wars, newcomers Panzer were drawn up against previous heat finalists Undertaker in its first round battle of the heat. Panzer drove up Undertaker, which was then bounced around by the Arena spikes. Undertaker could not move properly because of control difficulties, but the battle still went to a judges' decision, however the judges did give the victory to Panzer, putting the newcomers through to the next round of the Heat.
Panzer then went up against another veteran in the second round, Challenger 2. Throughout the battle, Panzer's rubber tracks continually drove up Challenger 2's low wedge shape, but finally Panzer managed to steer Challenger 2 towards the pit, and then into it, putting it through to the next round of the Heat.
In the Heat Final, Panzer went up against Evil Weevil. However, Panzer never moved off the start. Its opponent Evil Weevil ran into the immobilised Panzer several times, before Panzer was approached and picked up by House Robot Sir Killalot. The rest of the House Robots closed in, and torched the defeated machine.
