If you like 80's sci-fi action films AND comic books, you should check out Vandroid, a real love-letter to the 80's:

Quote:
The year is 1984. Washed-up mechanic Chuck Carducci is contacted by an old roommate from his MIT days to team up on a new project using cutting-edge artificial intelligence. With salvaged electronics from NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab, high-performance van parts, and a plutonium-ion battery dubiously procured by a mysterious financial backer, Chuck builds a robot so human, yet so powerful, it can only be called VANDROID!

It's completely over the top, kind of like if Stallone's COBRA was mixed with the Terminator.

There was a throbbing 80's soundtrack created for the comic somewhere out there.
