    I had nearly all the robot wars pullbacks. Now I have only two dantomkia and firestorm. The dantomkia is in brilliant consition for a robot which I used alot when I was a kid and then stuffed in a lego box. Not one scratch. I had to do fix the flipper on Firestorm as it broke. Well not the flipper just the clip to hold it in place. I used some thin plastic and works quite well. I wish I took better care of them as I said before I only have two now but thefunny thing is I have 8surviving minibots

    The inside of the Firestorm toy looks similar to the inside of the Dantomkia toy.

    @kirk20008 yeah that would work – i would have done it to this firestorm but wanted to restore it to as close as the original model as possible!

    @votesaxon07 what about it you took the screws out and file down any bits sticking up and just glue the front? just wondered if this would be possible because i would like it to have zero ground clearance and am looking at buying one off ebay. thanks

    wouldnt taking the small front wheels out make the front ground clearance lower?

    @votesaxon07 i tried it but the spring broke so i put a peice of a bouncy ball in and it flipped preaty powerfull

    @TheRoboteer Yeah? Try this one – you dont even have to use tools to do it – take the spring from a click pen and lie it across the edge of the flipper, tuck it in right at the bottom between the flipper hinge and the silver motors. Then close the flipper and see how much more powerful it is! Its a lot better than the way i improv ed the flipper in this video!

  13. i found a really …
    i found a really easy way of making the flliper a tiny tiny bit more powerful all u have to do is loosen of the front screws a tiny bit

  14. @wwefan12431 what …
    @wwefan12431 what in Robot wars? lol! What an odd place to ask that question! Seriously though Steven Moffatt has said he doesnt really want to bring back old villains too much so i doubt he’ll be back for a while anyway… though it would be nice to see him again, he’ll probably not be played by John Simm anymore…
