    Wheely Big Cheese is a heavyweight robot that was originally built by Roger Plant from Langport, Somerset. It was the 3rd heavyweight he built which was built to be the successor to The Big Cheese which was beaten in the heat final of the British 3rd Series of Robot Wars by Chaos 2. Wheely Big Cheese has a very powerful flipper and was also one of the most iconic ones seen on the show, it is powerful enough to hoist 800kg and was famous also for throwing Axe Awe a fair distance in the air and out the arena. In 2008, Roger Plant decided to sell all his robots when he retired from the sport and it was sold to Team Hydra (At the time, Team Cylon) who are currently trying to get it running again.
