So many models to choose from

Sdtrk: ‘Who’ll fall?’ by Coil

A crowd of Gynoids? Christmas in June??


‘Robotic Ladies of Film’ by Eduardo J.P.M

Now here we have another example where I had to work backwards; it started when I found this pic on one of those daffy imageboards I often plunder from. After firing up das Googlemaschine to find out any more info about it — is it by someone on deviantART? do they have any more Gynoid-based illustrations? — I learned it was an entry in a contest held on Ain’t it Cool News back in 2003. And that’s about it, really. It’s pretty easy to see why he was the winner, though!

You’ll definitely want the full-size version; there’s a link for it towards the bottom of the article. That’s a fab picture, wouldn’t you agree? It contains a number of my favourite Synthetik lasses, as indicated by my top ten sexiest Gynoids post (Cherry 2000, Call), as well as ones that for some reason didn’t occur to me when I wrote that (Galaxina, the automata lass from ‘Casanova’), and a few that I don’t recognise (that one with the big hair and shoulderpads, that blue lass). And having Maria from Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’ hold Tima from Osamu Tezuka’s ‘Metropolis’ is a nice touch…

D’ye think if enough of us request it, that maybe the artist will whip up one for Gynoids that have made appearances on tv shows? It’d undoubtedly be three times the size of the above illo, so he’d certainly have his work cut out for him

Any Synthetiks-related news, Davecat? (Nov 2008) on November 7th, 2008

    I’m not one for synthetics…..or lasses for that matter. However, I’m really liking the one in red with pink and black hair.

    Not one for Synthetiks?? BLASPHEMER *points and makes face like Donald Sutherland at the end of ‘Invasion of the body snatchers’*

    That lass in red with the two-tone hair would be Gigolo Jane, from Spielberg’s ‘A.I.’, a film I haven’t seen, as fellow Technosexuals have warned me to stay away from it. ‘It’s like an android snuff film at points,’ I was told. Plus, I’m not keen on Spielberg, so that’s two strikes against the movie…

    I recently just saw “Cherry 2000” for the first time a few weeks ago, but can’t find her in the pic. Day-um, you have good eyes!

    I thought C-2K wasn’t as disappointing as I thought it would be; quite funny in a campy kind of way, and the ending didn’t totally suck. Yay! A victory for the gynoid-minded 😀

    I actually own “A.I.” because … well, I dunno why I own it. It wasn’t half-bad, as I recall, but that still doesn’t make it good, either. I’ll have to re-watch it again to see why…

    I suppose you’re right. Vader’s “more machine than man”. I haven’t seen AI, but I want to.

    PercyByssheS –
    Isn’t ‘Cherry 2000’ fab? Well, overall. I couldn’t stand that ending, but I would say that. And I have to say that E.Johnson was Melanie Griffith’s best role evar.

    E.JOHNSON (after scrambling outside of her car, which is being hoisted into the air over a canyon by an electromagnetic crane): ‘I swallowed my gum.’

    And Cherry would be the blonde in red, directly in front of Dot Matrix from ‘Spaceballs’, and to the left of that blue lass. That blue lass, I recently discovered, is Caterina, from the Italian film ‘Io e Caterina’. The version in the poster definitely looks better than the original. 🙂

    Laura –
    Well, technically, cyborgs aren’t Synthetiks — they have artificial parts, but they still have something organic about them. Tell Vader good try though, next time you run into him.

    Threepio? He’s 100% Synthetik, however! Also: gay as a candy necklace. Not that there’s anything wrong with that!

  6. PBShelley writes:

    Ah yes, the ending. Well. At least she lived happily, and possibly ever after? And not ended up in a crusher, decpitated, or “turned off” or left all alone *snif*

    So to me, and compared to nearly every single other Artificial Companion flick it was a relief, of sorts. I half-expected the two mains to hook up anyway LOL

    I think Cherry was just happy to be ali- well, just happy LOL She’s just that kinda girl 😀

    And “yes” to your Melanie Griffith “best evar” award! Overall, and (well) aside from Lars, it’s probably the best A.C. movie. Not that that’s saying much, but still. *Recalls “Love Object” and shudders to bits*

    Well, it’s after 4 in the morning and I’ve probably fogotten a few… or not 😛

    Shoulder pad goldie is from SpaceBalls and was voiced by Jan Rivers. She was Princess Clemidia’s attendant.
    blech!

  8. SafeTinspector writes:

    JOAN, nt Jan. Damn you, organic fingers!

  9. SafeTinspector writes:

    Was big hair n’ shoulderpads from Blade runner?

  10. Davecat writes:

    No no, the gold one in the back is Dot Matrix from ‘Spaceballs’. I was referring to the one with the floofed-out blonde hair behind the Fembot; I’ve since learned that’s RoboCHIC, from the film of the same name. It apparently starred Playboy Playmate Kathy Shower, who was also in such illustrious features as ‘American Kickboxer 2’, and as ‘Girl in Car’ in two episodes of Simon & Simon. Onward and upward, Kathy; onward and upward.

    And Jan, Joan, it doesn’t matter! She’s still a raspy, horse-faced tart, so it’s all academic!
