What the heck is that?

The rules are easy:

1. Between my updates (when can come at any time, I don't ever have set times for updates), you can ask one single-part "yes or no" question pertaining to the thing in question as well as take one shot at its name (you don't have to explain it unless you want to; just ID it by name, I'll post a wikipedia link for verification).
2. If you're the first or tied for first (you have exact same timestamp as somebody else) to name whatever it is, you get a point. The first person to ten points wins.
3. Keep in mind, answers gotta be specific; you're not gonna get a point if it's the vintage Tiger Force Flint's gun and you say "That's a G.I. Joe gun" or "That's Flint's gun," but somebody else definitely will for "That's vintage Tiger Force Flint's gun" or "That's 1988's Flint gun" or "That's Flint v2's gun."
4. If I ever screw up - which I very well might sometime - I hereby give my word that I will not retaliate, in any way, if you come to my house and hit me in a foot of your choice with a nunchuck.

OK. =)

2. If you're the first or tied for first (you have exact same timestamp as somebody else) to name whatever it is, you get a point. The first person to ten points wins.
3. Keep in mind, answers gotta be specific; you're not gonna get a point if it's the vintage Tiger Force Flint's gun and you say "That's a G.I. Joe gun" or "That's Flint's gun," but somebody else definitely will for "That's vintage Tiger Force Flint's gun" or "That's 1988's Flint gun" or "That's Flint v2's gun."
4. If I ever screw up - which I very well might sometime - I hereby give my word that I will not retaliate, in any way, if you come to my house and hit me in a foot of your choice with a nunchuck.

Man, I forgot that movie even had robots. I just remember the basic plot, the two leads, a guy in a wheelchair and laser cigarette disposal.
