    Information
    Beast is a heavyweight robot in its sixth incarnation built to resemble the team's really successful featherweight Beauty. Beast is also called the 8645T because the team believe that squinting at the name makes it resemble the word "Beast". The first incarnation of Beast was built in 2001 for Series 5 of Robot Wars where it beat John Findlay's first ever robot T-Bone in round 1 and since then, the teams both became very good friends. Beast has changed a lot since its first appearance but has always had the flipper as its weapon which has been improved time and time again. Beast has done very well in the live events including the Roaming Robots event at RIAT 2005 where it won and also the Roaming Robots 2005 & 2007 Winter Tours where it finished 4th.
