The news of this excited me until I read somewhere it's to be 'scripted reality' :-/

will it just be lightweights, middleweights and heavyweights this time? i don't think supers have been around for years.
Featherweight under construction.

Antweight to build list: 4Wd lifter, new clusterbot, secret project, walker of some description.

we were told to go to 250lbs but not to load up on armour and make it about the weapon.

I heard about the scripted reality part, that's only going to be the between fights fortunately.
As for the 250lb weight limit, the only other place I saw that was on Twitter (not a page related to the show's production), but apparently they'll be making it so that robots of different weight categories can fight each other.
Fortunately they're not planning on taking the same path as Robot Combat League.

I think Craig has heard that from the programme makers seen as he competes out there.
