American Robot Wars Final 1996 was a short video that could be obtained upon joining the Robot Wars Club from 1998 as part of the initial membership pack. Presented by Philippa Forrester and with a running time of around 8 minutes it acted as a preview of the 50-minute video American Robot Wars 1996 as well as an introduction to the then-new UK version of Robot Wars.
The video ends with the same fight featuring Thor and The Master that was included on the end of the The First Great War video except with the original sound and commentary from that event.
Starting from 2000 club membership packs would instead include the video Robot Wars: A History of the Third Wars.
A mail-in offer, exclusive to club members for the full 50-minute video at a special club members price was included with the video.
