Obviously, there are a lot of cool robots in the Magnus, Robot Fighter series, but this old Battle-Rob from Magnus, Robot Fighter #8 is certainly one of my favourites. Awakened by a bunch of meddlesome kids known as the 'Outsiders', the Battle-Rob is still programmed to kill all humans. He's a bit like those Japanese soldiers that didn't know WW2 had ended. The Battle-Rob takes over the weather station, and North Am's perfect climate isn't quite so perfect any more. There a particular great moment where Magnus states that he's having such a tough time taking out this Battle-Rob because it doesn't have neck. Sadly, our time lost Rob is destroyed, but it may be for the best, as his friends and family had been dead an buried for a thousand years.
