Nah, Robocop 2 was a junker. It was all twisted and stuff, ED-209 is just so damn cool looking (even though it's not supposed to be). Droideka is cool, but it's sorta similar to ED-209.

From TA I'd have to pick Storm, Thud and AK. I really like the design of those (yeah I know the PeeWee owns them). I used to modify the AI files so they only built L1 Kbots... then I played on the Metal map with 9 computers * 500 unit limit... usually there was like 3000-4000 Kbots duking out in the middle of the map.

The original cartoon lion version of Voltron.  Not the cheesy 3D version, the one on rollerskates, or any version of the the Power Rangers.  I like the original Japanese anime Voltron.

Mine is Data, he simply never seems to understand humans. And in Generations he constantly made me laugh with that emotion chip (,,Look, its mister Tricorder!" When drinking something:,, I think he hates it." ,,Yeah, It's disgusting! I hate it! Can I have some more, please?)  

The second is that improved battledroid from attack of the clones. And of course C-3PO for being so clumsy.

Are the characters from Reboot considered robots?

I'd have to go along with Zieman here, and claim Marvin as my choice for favourite robot. Actually, he's ranked very highly on my (non-existant) favourite character list. Love that ol' hunk o' metal.

When on the subject, Bender's not half bad, either.

I don't think so, therefore I'm probably not.

I went to Wikipedia to find out exactly what a robot is and found out:
Quote
In practical usage, a robot is a mechanical device which performs its tasks either according to direct human control, partial control with human supervision, or completely autonomously.

So with sci-fi robots i would have to to go with the MadCat from the mechwarrior series, but i found Some one who likes it more then me.

I would also have to say i like almost all the robots from the Macross series'.

I'm not sure if it counts as a robot, but HAL from 2001 was a bad
ass computer. HAL had AI, so I'm thinking robot, but didn't really
have a body. Anyway, for typical robot with mobility, I'll go
with R2D2 of Star Wars fame. I fell in love with the little
guy when he got shot by the jawas in A New Hope.

I think the Timberwolf was a better incarnation of that design.


"HAL had AI, so I'm thinking robot, but didn't really

The ship and it's shuttle probes were it's body, I thought.

I was thinking more of a dedicated body. HAL was  a computer
which could control ship funcation. Technically, I suppose
the ship was a body to HAL. However, robot like C-3PO,
R2-D2, Bender, etc have dedicated bodies which don't do anything
else.
Whether this makes HAL a simple computer rather than
a robot is, I suppose, up for bedate.
