Last year, illustrator Richard Sargent created this amazing poster [click to enlarge] with just about every robot from popular culture (and hid Wall-E in the midst of it). BTW: This art can make great last minute wrapping paper on your printer if you’re looking to wrap something relatively small.

    Where’s AstroBoy??

  2. kevin j. goulding. says:

    OK…so where is Wall-e? and why no Borg?

  3. Absolutely love it! Only one miss as I see it. Data.

  4. Ken Parsons says:

    No Dorothy R. from Big-O… Didn’t Glad to see Lexx franchise represented.

    haha found him!!! once i found that white super robot from the movie i figured he would be looking for him too.

  7. Rhett says:

    Don’t read this unless you have made a genuine effort to find him… Look front and center to find the two robots from Silent Running, they are the ones with ‘shoulder-mounted legs’ and no arms. Wall-E is two robots behind the orange one.

    Where’s Arnold/Terminator?

      upper left

    Star Wars is represented at least twice, but I don’t see any Star Trek (blasphemy!). Maybe realistically humanoid robots aren’t in here. I don’t see any cylons or replicants, either. Still, while that max exclude Data, it wouldn’t exclude the Borg.

    1. Fjor says:

      There is the Nomad probe from episode S02E03 of the original Star Trek series, and I found at last one cylon and the mech dog Daggit from the 1978 Battlestar Galactica. I must search harder for AstroBoy, but I think Data should be there. In any case I would like a full list of the characters/series depicted – there is a lot I don’t recognize.
