I'm not too sure about HAL (a computer) or Robocop (a cyborg), but if no one complains, I'll leave 'em in. Posted Image

Besides, Roy Batty was technically an artificially-created human wasn't he? Argh, what a quandary...

Three more noms and seconds for everyone who's participated thus far.

I added to the noms list:

Cylon Centurion (Battlestar Galactica)
Gunslinger (Westworld)
The Terminator (T-1000 model from Terminator 2)

Quote:
R2-D2 (forgot the name of the movie)

Can't remember the name of the movie, but I seem to remember it sucking. BTW, Didn't this R2 dude have a friend?

Quote:
Huey (the tree-hugger from Silent Running)

What about Dewey and Louie? You playin' favorites? Posted Image

Note: there were no robots in Lord of the Rings. :P)

Are Robotic performances allowed?

if so I'll nominate

Mark Wahlberg - I'm convinced he's a real life android created by the studios. My goodness the man has only one expression that ever crossed his face & the monotone delivery of his lines is the clincher. Posted Image

If not then

The Iron Giant
C-3PO (I still can remember the name of that movie)
Ash (Alien)
Death before Streaming!

Robotic performances? Good idea for another tournament!

Dammit, what was the name of the robot maid on The Jetsons?

Twiki from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

now that's a blast from the past. Is this another geek check? Posted Image

Even though that little robot annoyed the hell out of me back when I was 11 or 12 years old I have to second such an inspired choice.

BTW - I just watched The Two Towers EE last night. Best film of 2002. Posted Image :P)
