"No donuts for this cop"

Films: R.O.T.O.R (1987)

Alias: Robotic Officer of the Tactical Operations Research/Reserve Unit

Type: Man-Made

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Imagine if you combined Robocop and the Terminator, alright? Sounds awesome, right? No, you'd be...okay, maybe your idea is better, but it'll never be as shoddy as what we got instead.

History: The next generation in police force apparently, this mustachioed android was meant to take years to perfect, but corporate greed made it so that it would be done in less than two months. Upon being activated, R.O.T.O.R works far too well, as he ends up terrorizing everybody no matter how minor their infractions are.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After being confronted in the countryside, some folks tie R.O.T.O.R into place before blaring loud noises to the point where he just blows up. That's it. No sequel to be made. Thank God.

Powers/Abilities: Incredibly resilient, master in several forms of combat.

Weakness: Loud noises immobilize him, and potentially, can kill him.

Scariness Factor: 2-We know a certain maniacal cop who's more threatening than this T-800 knock-off. The main issue is that he simply doesn't look like a cold killer. He looks more like that neighbor your dad used to hate. Not all that remarkable.

Trivia: -This film was also known as "Blue Steel" and "Robo Police".

-If you dislike this film, just know that screenwriter Budd Lewis will always HATE it more than you do. He was...rather bitter about the changes to his original draft, which was a lot more meta and humorous, that the director and co. instigated, believing it all to be too expensive. Yeah, and that crappy R.O.T.O.R exoskeleton was totally money well spent.

Lousy driver, too.
The guys behind the stop motion of the T-800 realize they got off easy.
