Boy, I missed almost all of those!  Guess I was busy doing other things during the 90's !

Was it really intentional to describe a radioactive wasteland as "New Jersey BEFORE an apocalypse"?

I have been to Gary, Indiana but I have never seen New Jersey.

Rob--these slides do bring back memories.  The thing that fascinates me about the robotic characters is the computer graphics used to develop the story line.  My dream job would to work for PIXAR or some other motion picture concern to develop these 'bots virtually.  I think that would be really fun.  Great slide show.

Now that this list has moved into the 90's, does the category robot still apply??

Maybe it's semantics but what about androids, vocaloids. and all the other 'oids?

The Terminator and Bishop transcended robot lists from the 80's!

Testament that the 80's was the best for bots!

The eyes on the Robot Jox look like DB15 connectors, that sort of reminds me of the ED209 in Robocop.  I always thought that the body was a Sennheiser microphone.
