Can you find the Tin Man (not a robot, more like a gradual cyborg) and Tik Tok?

Thanks Eric for pointing me to this great picture!

That was neat. I'm glad our friends from Oz were included.

It was a pleasant surprise to see some familiar tickers too, like the one from "Buzz Lightyear", the Skeletor robots, Futurama, DOCTOR WHO, Metropolis, Gibbo from "Flubber", Zeta, B.E.N. from "Treasure Planet, SO MANY OTHERS (including a few modern ones) and it would have been inappropriate for them not to include Ewan McGreggor's main "Robots" character.

*palms head* D'UH!! NOW I get the "Where's Wall-E?" title!

Disappointed that Richie Rich's Irona is not in there.

But at least Kryten's there, and Marvin the Paranoid Andriod (actually both Marvin's are there, the TV one and the movie one.)

The really big ones (Gigantor, Frankenstein Jr. etc.) were to too big to be included.  The artist, Richard Sargent said:
"Yeah I'm afraid I had to leave out the really huge robots like MechaGodzilla, Voltron, Iron Giant etc. Maybe they will get their own pic one day...?!"

That is an overwhelming piece of art! Must have taken a lot of hours to do all those little characters and details. I am impressed!
I guess this is mainly MOVIE robots, though. I'm not as avid a fan of the Jack Haley MGM Tin Man, but it's still nice to see him included (even though MGM never called him a robot, either). Tik-Tok is great, too (but again, it's the Disney "Return to Oz" version).
