The link doesn't work.

Favorite robot: the one from Lost in Space

Least favorite robot; any terminator

Favorite robot line; 'We have made men into machines; now we will make machines into men!' Professor Rotwang in 'Metropolis'.

The link to the robot bird thread above needed to be fixed, so I did. Very Happy

With all due respect, my least favorite robot is the top-heavy Robby wanna-be from Lost in Space. Even though both robots were designed by Bob Kinoshita, it just proves that great artists can have good days and bad days.

I'm not a professional artist, but my idea of a good robot design is more like this.








But I think we both agree that the robot from Metroplis is awesome! Cool

Love the concepts of robots in film and on television.

Robby, Tobor, B~9, you name 'em and I've enjoyed seeing 'em.

Always thought that the robot in the Judge Dredd movie with Sly Stalone was an awesome if nasty piece of work.

Robby is my favorite. I also liked the robot stevedore from "Earth II", where it's head and body could operate independently.

To be fair, I'm sure the Lost in Space robot was created on a much smaller budget than Robby. To me, the LIS robot looked like Robby's poor relation.

I've always had a soft spot for the robot John from the Russian flick Planeta Bur (Planet of Storms). He looks a bit clunky, but solid and built like a brick you-know-what. Is Russian robot -- strong like bull!

I'm a fan of John as well. He was carefully designed to make him look like a machine, not a man in a suit.

He does things that demonstrate his mechanical abilities, like rotating his upper torso repeatedly to wind a cable around it and pull down a massive tree to make a bridge, and carrying two men on his shoulders effortlessly across a lava flow!

Да, Джон сильный, как бык!

(Yes, John is strong like bull!)
