Default 10 Favorite Robots from any/all series!

Hey fellas,

Figured I'd compare tastes with other fellow robot fans and share my 10 fave robots from all the anime/cartoons/sci-fi shows/games I've watched and enjoyed over the years. This isn't one of those 10 "Best" robots thread or a VS argument just sharing some personal favorites that might help other fans uncover some hidden mecha gems and designs that might be to their liking. Pics are optional but highly recommended. Also sharing a little background (series/game that robot is from) is recommended so that other fans won't hound you for too many details.

I'll get the ball rolling with my 10 faves in no particular order:

1. Grendizer (UFO Robo Grendizer)

2. Exia (Mobile Suit Gundam OO)

3. Bartley-type Ride Armor/Cyclone (Robotech/Genesis Climber Mospeada)

4. Soundwave (Transformers)

5. Dragonzord (Power Rangers or Zyuuranger)

6. Black Getter (Shin Getter Robo Armageddon)



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

7. Optimus Prime/Convoy (Transformers)

8. OO Qan[T] (Mobile Suit Gundam OO: Awakening of the Trailblazer)



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

9. Summoner/Thor (Battletech)

10. Dark Horn (Zoids)

Hope to see more kinds of 10 faves on this thread soon.

Ha ha, not the first response I expected.

I like the Universal Century Gundam series but unfortunately it was not the first Gundam series I saw. My first foray into Gundam proper was G Gundam and if you'll notice I never included a single G Gundam robot on my list.

The Gundam series that have always stuck in my mind either in terms of story or design have been War in the Pocket, Z Gundam, 08th MS Team, Gundam Wing and most recently Gundam OO which I fell in love with the Exia design (seriously, I've like built the Master Grade kit twice now).


Nothing against the original series though I'd probably choose a Zeon unit...probably the Gouf because Ramba Ral is awesome.
