MORE than 50 mechanical monsters will descend on the Metrodome this month as Robot Wars comes to town.

The popular television show finished a couple of years ago, but will return next month with everyone's favourite robots.

Current Robot Wars champion 'Eruption', along with previous champion 'Ripper' and crowd favourite 'Behemoth' will appear at the two shows on June 28 and 29.

The weekend, which will include battles and demonstrations, will also give people the chance to drive a robot.
