    Information
    Dantomkia is a robot that was built by Mike Lambert from Surrey originally in 2001, it got its strange name from team captain Mike's three children Daniel, Thomas & Kiara. Dantomkia immediately burst into the scene in its debut in Robot Wars throwing the two-time British champion Chaos out the arena in its heat final and winning the best promising newcomer award the same year after reaching the semi-final. It has done well in many live events winning the Annihilator in 2006 when it was sold to Team Batter who also helped it finish 4th in the UK Championships in 2007 & second in 2008. Dantomkia is a favourite amongst roboteers and robot fans worldwide after its success in Robot Wars, this version is mark 5 which debuted in 2013. Recently, Mike Lambert sold this version of Dantomkia to roboteer Shane Swan.
