In honor of the release of FUGITIVE X, the sequel to REVOLUTION 19 by Gregg Rosenblum tomorrow, and the impending robot revolution we all know is coming, here are 10 robots we think would be RBF material…Robotic Best Friend.

 

 

1. WALL-E

How could we not include the most adorable robot ever on this list? He is the very definition of a RBF.

2. THE IRON GIANT

We can’t look at any images of The Iron Giant without tearing up. A giant RBF with a heart of gold.

3. R2D2 and C-3PO

Star Wars (Like we seriously had to remind you.)

These two come as a package deal.

4. OPTIMUS PRIME

From Transformers – A new RBF that also doubles as a hot rod? I’ll take it.

5. CYLONS

From Battlestar Galactica – Sure they started out all evil and stuff, but some of them were good and are even RBF material. (We’re looking right at you Sharon Valerii!)

6. MARVIN THE PARANOID ANDROID

From Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – This sad guy with a brain the “size of a planet” could use a new friend to cheer him up. That’s where we’d come in.

7. JOHNNY FIVE

From Short Circuit – He will steal your heart with those big dopey eyes, but also teach you what it means to be human, something you’ll need in an RBF during the revolution.

8. K-9

From Doctor Who – Not quite ready to give up your furry best friend for a more shiny and metallic one? How about a robot dog to ease the transition? Perhaps K-9, from the fourth Doctor Who is your new RBF.

9. THE TERMINATOR

Try to forget that one time he tried to kill us all in the first movie and just remember the second and third ones. It might come in handy during the robot revolution to have an RBF that’s built this hunk of metal.

10. David 8

From Prometheus – We want to be RBF with any androids that also happen to look exactly like Michael Fassbender.

    You must have written this for me. I want to be friends with all these robots!!! BUT BUT BUT!!! You forgot an important one DATA from Star Trek he was the first robot i ever wanted to be friends with.

    I forgot all about Short Circuit and The Iron Giant! I loved those movies. And the Terminator 2 and on would definitely be someone you’d want to have around. Reaching the top of the cabinet, lifting heavy furniture to vacuum under. Oh, I could really use him!

    Of course Wall-e is the cutest of all to me. And most loyal. I think that’s what I’d look for in a robot friend.
