A Visual Guide To Pop Culture ROBOTS & CYBORGS

If there's one thing I'm sure we can all agree on, it's that robots are awesome. “Science Bob” Pflugfelder has put together a visual reference guide to help people identify well-known pop culture robots from movies, television shows, and comics. Engage your peepers after the jump..

"There’s something about robots that people connect to. I knew as soon as I left the theater after watching Star Wars that I would someday have my own R2-D2, (which I now do!) So I decided to ask the followers of my Facebook Page to tell me their favorite robot, and I got a huge response. Below are some of the favorites, and the approximate time that they made their first appearance. I included cyborgs (robotically modified humans) as well as some real robots that were mentioned. Thanks to all that posted! Click the image or links for a larger view. What’s your favorite robot? Did I miss any?"

Right off the bat, I'd say Bishop from Aliens! But I guess you can't fit 'em all in. Any other famous robots or cyborgs you think should be a part of this? For a larger look click the link below.

They should of used the superior model of The Sentinel.

Daleks aren't robots or cyborgs :( But ok, it's amazing!
Celotom - 5/30/2014, 5:37 AM
And Astroboy? :(

your forgot androids.

this is all wrong a robot is a machine a android is a robot that looks like a human and a cyborg is a human mixed with a robot
Floke - 5/30/2014, 5:48 AM
No Ash or Bishop? Or Roy?
slickrickdesigns - 5/30/2014, 5:51 AM
Judge Dredd Robot?

campblood - 5/30/2014, 5:54 AM
A robot is an autonomous, non-biological (i.e artificial) entity, and it's form has no bearing on its designation as a robot.
An android is a humanoid robot. A cyborg is an entity that combines artificial and biological components.
Floke - 5/30/2014, 5:56 AM
And how come RoboFox isnt on the list??
BlairTheWalrusBear - 5/30/2014, 5:57 AM
What about Cyborg! It's "Robot and CYBORGS". Maybe they should of had a picture of Ray Fisher....
Christuffer - 5/30/2014, 6:00 AM
Bicentennial Man? Robin Williams?
MrSundayMovies - 5/30/2014, 6:04 AM
What about all the Cyborg from the movie Cyborg?
CavEl - 5/30/2014, 6:09 AM
Hogarth: You're not a weapon! You are who you choose to be!

and



Iron Giant: You stay, I go. Suuupeeerrrman.


I ducking love Iron Giant. =)
Duratok - 5/30/2014, 6:09 AM
I find their lack of MechaGodzilla...disturbing.

The size that they've selected for everything here is very random.
CaptShipwreck - 5/30/2014, 6:10 AM
Jäger isn't a robot , it's a suit so by that rational ironman should be there

Or the house party protocol ones
CaptainAmerica1945 - 5/30/2014, 6:11 AM
How about Steve Austin???
CaptShipwreck - 5/30/2014, 6:12 AM
I piss on this guide.. Love the iron giant though... Who wouldn't love him dammit
Jackraow21 - 5/30/2014, 6:25 AM
Where is Cable?
Nomis - 5/30/2014, 6:40 AM
Cyborgs are people too!
Sumitsjc - 5/30/2014, 6:45 AM
@CavEl
Watched that Movie last night..I just F**king love it.
sicknimon - 5/30/2014, 7:05 AM
Yerp, this guide is cool but missing A LOT! According to this guide nothing came out in the 90's basically. Serious Q: Why is DOFP in 2006? Comic was in the 80's, cartoon in the 90's, and the movie just came out.
TheRationalNerd - 5/30/2014, 7:35 AM
Gotta love "The Iron Giant", first robot to ever have a brotha in tears!!

Very cool Ror.
wavehunter - 5/30/2014, 7:43 AM
I must add that Data was an android and not a robot (splitting hairs).
wavehunter - 5/30/2014, 7:46 AM
@ The BlackNerd - I hear ya, man.
VolkanTaskillas - 5/30/2014, 7:54 AM
HAL 9000 is a computer.
thewolfx - 5/30/2014, 9:37 AM
I wonder does the guyver count as a cyborg
Chewtoy - 5/30/2014, 10:51 AM
I'm glad that Ultron and the Vision will be making these kinds of lists soon.
Superior - 5/30/2014, 12:05 PM
Bumblebee over Megatron and Optimus Prime?
sups92 - 5/30/2014, 12:10 PM
Where's the robot from Johnny Sokko!!
Superior - 5/30/2014, 12:13 PM
And what about Gundam?
MichaelIvanLowell - 5/30/2014, 12:22 PM
I'm thinking the Vision and Ultron would be good additions.
mgeoff88 - 5/30/2014, 1:42 PM
This is pretty cool! The only thing is, this guide loses points for using the 2014 version of Robocop over the original.
dnno1 - 5/30/2014, 2:24 PM
They ar missing a few:



Gigantor/Tetsujin-28-go, 1966


Giant Robot, 1967

BANE5000 - 5/30/2014, 6:51 PM
You dont put the original Robocop but put the remake version...HOW FREAKIN DARE YOU
Tainted87 - 5/30/2014, 7:31 PM
Daleks are less "cyborg" than Iron Man. They're just squiddy-looking one-eyed gooey creatures inside battle tanks that can fly and do just about everything.

CYBERMEN are totally cybernetic. Who else?
The Autons. The Teselecta. The Tardis itself.

Ash, Bishop, Call, David... all the same Alien universe.

Ultron, Awesome Andy, Ultimo, Dragon Man....
