Five Fandom Friday: Favorite Droids

Well to tell you guys the truth, I’m not a HUGE Star Wars fan but I know the droids kind of well but I have a couple surprising ones on my list that I think should count that are not Star Wars related!

These Droids are in no particular order, it’s just to show some love to these loveable robots.

  1. WALL-E

So does WALL-E classify as a droid? Well a droid by definition is a:

Droids, short for androids, or also called robots, were mechanical beings, often possessing artificial intelligence.

So I think this loveable robot from Disney’s movie named after this little guy counts as a droid, he certainly has artifical intelligence and is defiantly a robot.

Okay, maybe not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to space ships and other advanced technology, maybe not as smart as his girlfriend EVE with this stuff, but he has been stranded on earth for years with no technology like this. WALL-E has a huge heart though and is a loveable little robot nonetheless.

2. Rosie The Robot

Now, this robot dates back to the 1962 series The Jetsons. She is a lovable house maid for the Jetson’s but is also a robot.  She is more of a “humanoid” than an “android” but a droid nonetheless.

A humanoid robot is:

a robot with its body shape built to resemble the human body. The design may be for functional purposes, such as interacting with human tools and environments, for experimental purposes, such as the study of bipedal locomotion, or for other purposes. In general, humanoid robots have a torso, a head, two arms, and two legs, though some forms of humanoid robots may model only part of the body, for example, from the waist up.

So, Star Wars C-3PO could count as a humanoid being built to look like a human and function as a translator.

When I was younger I used to watch The Jetsons on Boomerang along with Tom and Jerry and other shows. I always remembered wishing I would have a robot like Rosie when I got older because she was so kind and also funny.

3.BB-8

Now we are heading to the great beyond to this bundle of cuteness named BB-8 from the new movie The Force Awakens. I got to admit this is one of the cutest little robots I have seen in film and I have fallen head over heels for him.

BB-8 is defiantly one of my favorites and will always be.

But the next two will never be beat….

4. R2-D2 and C-3PO

I know, I know, this duo is over done but I can’t get enough of these two. Ever since I started watching Star Wars when I was younger I loved them to death. I love BB-8 but these two will remain forever in my heart.

5. Battle Droids

I choose this one because I enjoy the humor they have in the Clone Wars cartoon series. They are just endless little workers trying to survive and their humor is just short and they are hilariously fun to watch.
