I saw the prompt for this week’s Five Fandom Friday by Nerdy Girlie and I just couldn’t help myself. I have a soft spot in my heart for droids and their mech-y character. Now this list is in no particular order, just a collection of my favorite robotic characters!
R2D2 was the first droid that I fell in love with. His beep-boop noises added so much character to an otherwise pretty emotionless metal frame. My husband forced me to watch Star Wars I, II, & III and while h-a-t-i-n-g Anakin and the Jar Jar, I found a friend in R2D2.
Talk about funny little dudes. Claptrap, the droid from the Borderlands series has oodles of character. I love all the humor that he brings to an already sarcastic and darkly funny series. We found this amazing Claptrap Yahtzee set at a Barnes and Noble once and it proudly perches on our entertainment stand.
We were lucky enough to go and see The Force Awakens on opening day. I went into the film excited, but skeptical. I knew they were adding a new droid, but R2D2 had long held my heart as a favoite droid character. As soon as I saw BB8’s orange and white body roll across the screen I was hooked. He has so much character and his spherically body just made him absolutely adorable in my eyes. I honestly couldn’t tell you at this point which Star Wars droid is my fav. They are both top notch in my eyes.
While I have to admit I haven’t seen the original Dr. Who series, I am a huge fan of the newest additions. I loved the K9 droid that followed around 10 and Sarah Jane in “School Reunion”. I mean, who wouldn’t love a little doggy droid?
I couldn’t imagine ending this list with a better droid. I think we all fell in love with WALL-E & his sweet disposition. His good natured spirit is something that we could all take a lesson from right about now.
So those are my top 5 favorite droids! Who are your fav robotic characters?
