Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Fembot Fantasia:

Comments

Robin

Kendra Kirchner as Cassandra in Android.

TheFrog

>>Umm.. what about "7 of 9" from Star Trek: TNG

7 of 9 is a human, enhanced with Borg technology.
She is not a Fembot.
and she is not in TNG, but in Voyager.

Pris in Blade runner will always be my favourite.

Avg Bear

I dug Rachael (although an identical model) over Pris in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?-- Blade Runner watered the characters down too much.

I suppose Battle Angel Alita is technically a cyborg, but damn close.

Otherwise my vote goes for Sharon on BSG.

Cygnus V

I know she's a little young (the biological equivalent of 12-13 tops), but my all-time favorite gynoid is little Tima from the 2001 anime remake of Metropolis (and her counterpart from the 1949 manga, Michi). Tima is incredibly sweet and angelic and is very curious about her world--until you plug her into a honking big ziggurat-shaped supercomputer and she decides to punish mankind's treatment of robots by nuking the planet...O_O Her character is even better in the manga; in the manga she can fly, fight back a trained martial artist, leap across the city streets like a ballerina, and even navigate a ship! (Too bad she had to die a horrible fiery death, though...)

Other things that are cool about Tima:

1. I believe, although I have no idea if anyone else on Planet Earth has this theory, that her name is derived from Tiamat, the most powerful of the Sumerian goddesses, from whose body the cosmos was shaped. Goddesses rock!

2. She appears to be solar powered (both directly, and indirectly through the food she eats). Viva renewable energy resources!

3. From what I understand, Tima in many ways emulates a normal human; she can love, enjoy the company of animals, breathe, and eat. Many fans even speculate that she'll be able to grow into an adult android. For all you guys and lesbians out there, that means someday she'll be legal...;)

4. Did I mention she can learn anything put in front of her? Think of how far she could go at a woman's college!

Lee

You guys forgot the best of all, Maitreya/Jade Blue from the X-Files, First Person Shooter episode. Although technically not a robot she is the sexiest thing to hit the screen.

OregonGuy

Platinum from Metalmen comix.

Brandon Cowden

The French Fembot from Austin Powers. She was sexy and deadly.

Wyatt Wingfoot

Andrea (Sherry Jackson) on STAR TREK's "What Are Little Girls Made Of?". or... The blonde saloon girl that Richard Benjamin "hires" in WESTWORLD.

The Sci-Fi Guy

Just because Jeri Ryan is now playing a lawyer, let's not forget Seven of Nine in this the start of STAR TREK's 40th Anniversary!

Anonymous Coward

Cherry2000 is a HORRIBLE movie! The android is not powerful, and not remarkable.

I agree-- Data's daughter Lal.
Also, the Borg Queen has been digitized,
assimilated, and no longer has her own soul,
so she's also a fembot.

alex

kelly lebroc is definately the best fembot ever

mark

"kelly lebroc is definately the best fembot ever"
agree :)

Jane Montgomery

My favorite is Rayna from Star Trek's Requiem For Methuselah.

Ken

I like the robot on your Sept 2006 issue, but you guys gave no information... is it a working robot?

Titus Black

Hey what about the bot from the failed little known TV show Little Wonders? she was kinda cute and since I was a little kid I had a bit of a crush on her... What ever happend after that show?

Cru

The Major from Ghost in the Shell Movie and TV show.

Rich

Hey. What about Rhoda the Robot from "My Living Doll."

Played by 5' 11" Julie Newmar.
She made Kelly Lebrock look like a boy.

socrbob

How about 1/2 vote for Rommie from the Andromeda tv series and the other 1/2 vote for the blonde bot that played the second Rommie. She was hotter than the original.

Bart Balch

Pris gets my vote in the best sci-fi flick ever!

bzbzbz

NO NO NO ...ALL OF THEM FEMBOTS ARE GREAT ... BUT SIX FROM TRIPPIN THE RIFT IS BY FAR THE MOST SEXY,TASTYAND NASTY OF THEM ALL..... WITH PRISS COMEING IN AT A CLOSE SECOND

bzbzbz

AND I DO ....think about female robots alot...

Paul

Pris, definitley Pris.....

Dan

Definitely, Seven Of Nine should be included. A bombshell par excellence!
