Robot Hall Of Fame

It's never too early for children to start learning about the awesome destructive power of robots. And what better way to teach them then to put that power at their fingertips? Of course, I'm talking about Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots:

These iconic figures have been around for a while, and are easily recognizable by anyone who isn't lame as hell. They've made an appearance in Toy Story 2, as well as inspired the work of modern artists like Eric Joyner.

The classic toy is long overdue for an update, however. While a robot uppercut is certainly impressive, everyone knows that the robot's preferred method of destruction is lasers. Or whirring saw blades at the very least.

Come on, Mattel - give us a toy that truly represents the terrible might of our future botlords.
