Super Secret Geek.Kon Post II

Geek.Kon is a mere week away and you should be excited! The lineup is coming together and it includes awesome sci-fi and anime viewings, lots of special guests, panelists, artists, vendors and a ROCKBAND competition to name a few highlights.

And it's FREE?!

Will you be there? You would pretty much be crazy not to be there. The level of awesomeness is just too severe.

Plus I am giving stuff away.

If you are attending the con this weekend and want a chance to win something for FREE (or even if you're not and you're just into free stuff…) well here is your chance! Just leave a comment on this blog and give me your two cents on this topic: your favorite robot. It can be any robot - from T.V., movies, cartoons, whatever. I'll start: I love iron giant. It's such an awesome story and he's such a cool looking robot. I have to show my kids this movie soon!

Make sure you leave an e-mail address or some way to get in touch with you if you are the lucky winner. I will pick a winner randomly on Thursday 9/25 and post back here to announce who gets the goods.

The goods? What are the goods you ask? We are giving away an ultimate geek gift pack. It includes: Lord of the Rings Magnet Set, Hellas Kitty Notecard, and a TALK NERDY TO ME pin.

Good luck! See you next weekend, fellow geeks! Please feel free to stop by and visit us in the vendor room at the con. We might have something special for you if you mention this blog post.

I think my favorite robot has to be Bender from Futurama. How can you not love a snarky, beer swilling jerk of a robot?

Space Oddities said...

Hahaha! Yes! I love Bender.

I love Marvin from The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. He's adorably depressed :)

My favorite robot is my iRobot because it cleans my floors so I don't have to!! Bender rules too. As does the maid robot from the Jetsons.

dude. i totally want that 'talk nerdy to me' pin.

my favorite robot? i'd say data on next generation. but i don't think you'd let that slide, since we all *know* he's an android.

so let's go with jenny. on my life as a teenage robot. because she oh so badly wants to be real. as do i.

My favorite robot is bender as well becuase he is just so fricken kickass that it is indescribeable (potential spelling error there).

I am their supplier of Rockband woot!

My favorite robot is R2D2. Those beeping sounds he made as a form of communicating were so cool at the time and he didn't have that annoying voice that C3PO did. Geez, I hope I'm not getting their names backwards. Anyhow, I like the non-talking canister vacuum cleaner-shaped robot from Star Wars. C'est fini.

The Robot from Lost in Space. Because there is absolutely nothing like old skool cheese and a catch-phrase that has survived the ages.

Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!

Tons of people probably say that but my dad collects Star Wars toys and we have a big R2. He will always hold a special place in my heart!

My favorite Robot? Chii from Chobits.Computers that walk around are SO robots. Plus, she looks adorable doing it :)

Natalie said...

Definitely Marvin :)

"Freeze? I'm a robot. I'm not a refrigerator."

"I have a million ideas, but, they all point to certain death."

"Genuine People Personalities. I'm a personality prototype. You can tell, can't you...?"

"I'd make a suggestion, but you wouldn't listen.
[pause and then even more depressed]
No one ever does."

I think my favorite robot has to be the robot maid from Spaceballs.

I would have to agree with some of the previous posts and go with R2D2. The emotions conveyed through his beeps and bops are amazing, hilarious, and cute, all rolled into one blue and silver midget-bot. R2 for the win.

Jackie said...

It's hard for me to pick between my favorites...but overall, I like humanoid robots, like the Cylons from Battlestar Galactica, or Cameron, from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. I like watching characters grapple with what it means to be human, and of course it's fun to watch humanoid robots toy with the emotions of actual humans.

I guess if I had to pick a favorite right now, it would be Cameron from Terminator, but that's because not everything about her has been explained yet, :)

I love the Talk Nerdy To Me pin!!!

Well, I'm dating myself, but I loved the robot on Lost in Space. If I remember correctly, they just called him "Robot." Such a great old show that I spent many childhood hours watching.

By far the coolest robot is Zearth from the anime Bakurano. He may not be overly quick on his legs but man can that guy give a punch. And he's huge, you could see for miles in that thing. Hands down winner.

I love Rosie from The Jetsons and I'm not sure if the DRD named 1812 from Farscape technically counts as a robot but my favorite is Kryten from Red Dwarf.
