We've Identified By Name All The Robots In The New GE Ad

GE has a great new ad from BBDO celebrating “brilliant machines,” in which a diaspora of robots comes together outside a vast warehouse full of light.

Many of the robots are taken from TV and the movies, and some are from real life. (BBDO tells us that many of the robots are the real props from the original movies, not replicas.) We’ve tried to ID them all.

First, this is Robby the Robot from “Forbidden Planet”:
