Does Tick Tock from RETURN TO OZ count as a robot? He’s awesome.
Also, SCREAMERS was based on a Philip K. Dick short story. I am disappointed with your lapse of sci-fi literature knowledge here Skelton.
Tik-Tok is a wind-up mechanical man, so he sure is a robot. A more questionable 80s robot would be Bubo from “Clash of the Titans” since he’s more explicitly animated by magic. Which is kind of a dumb argument when dealing with movie robots, but whatever.
And, to be fair, “Screamers” feels more like it’s based on a movie that was based on a television episode that was based on a magazine article that was based on some guy on the bus retelling the Philip K. Dick short story.
Stretch Armstrong was actually filled with corn syrup. It’s not toxic by any means, but it’ll give you diabetes.

That is awesome! Although, I could find Tom Servo, but no Crow or Gypsy?
I can’t do otherwise, I gotta go with the T-1000.
Robots in James Bond? Well it’s a long stretch, but…
Love the T-1000. He’s like a big glob of murderous silver Silly Putty.
Those quadroters are going to be terrifying once they stop playing music and start hunting humans for sport.
