Robots!

Dead or alive, you are coming with me. Seriously, this 30 cm Robocop Sixth-Scale Figure is pretty damn sweet. Featuring more than 30 points of articulation and diecast materials “for greater realism,” Robocop comes with his gun (and leg holster), swappable hands along with battle-damaged helmets and chest plates, and will even speak six phrases from the film. If you’re willing to go a little further you can get him complete with his mechanical chair for $425 or stick with Robocop alone for $300.

Robinson’s Brewery’s latest seasonal beer Hoptimus Prime “transforms as each individual ingredient combines to satisfy all of your hoppy needs.” Hopefully it’s less bitter than the Michael Bay films.

California native Mike Senna spent two years building a functional Wall-E robot to scale. Very, very cool.

The BBC has finally released a trailer for the first-half of Series Seven of Doctor Who hitting airwaves later this month. The new season will be broken in half with the Christmas special (introducing Jenna-Louise Coleman as The Doctor’s new companion) in the middle. From the trailer it looks like we’ll be seeing robots, dinosaurs, lots of Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill), Weeping Angels, and the return of Alex Kingston as River Song.

Pusher

Pusher is a fun little timewaster which may as well be called “Kill All Robots.” Given teh ‘monkey’s love/hate relationship with our eventually robotic overlords this one should be right up his alley. Simply move your little pal around the screen and push the blocks into the robots, thus clearing each level of their mechanical malevolence.
