What could be scarier than a shiny Centurion, or a million Boomers doing naked yoga? This new Cylon model, which will lead yet another revolution against the next hybrid human-Cylon overlords.

This is one of a gorgeous set of photos taken by Marc-Julien Objois of a popular robot toy from the 1980s. Called the Armatron, it was made by TOMY and distributed by Radio Shack, it also boasted this amazing set of controls.


I love the idea that kids were being acclimated to industrial robot arms 30 years ago. Plus, the Armitron also encouraged mad sciencey behaviors, as you can see in this image of the box it came in.

Thanks, Jesse!
