Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #1 - Where's Wall-E?

Here's what I propose (wearing my participant, not admin hat): once a full 24 hours passes between anyone finding anything, end the game. If even one image shows up people might still be finding stragglers, but if a 24 hour period passes (easy to determine from the last answer's date/time), it probably means that people have given up.

We're nearly at 7 days since the challenge began, and the only person who weighed in on whether or not they wanted me to end the challenge and list the remaining ones was zuckyd, who leaned towards closing it because he felt he wasn't finding too many more...and then swiftly found another five. So I'm thinking we'll keep it open a little while longer, but my new query is: Would the players like some minor hints or clues? Or would you prefer to leave it down to your own research?

At this point I think hints might make it a little more fun.

Okay. There's still quite a mix, but it might not hurt to check some movie serials and 1950s movies. You've found and identified the good guy, but their evil counterpart rolls differently. Sometimes the biggest among us has the smallest presence. One robot's boss needs to eat more; I'd say he was skin and bones, but I'd only be half right. Do you want to buy a potato? It's ironic that this mascot is a robot. Look both ways, children. It's time to face the music.

Makes sense.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #1 - Where's Wall-E?

No guesses in the last day. Before I give out answers, I'll provide a hint where to look for each of the remaining robots. If, after another day, there's still no additional identifications, I'll provide them. If we get a few, I'll see how we are looking, and either provide additional hints, or name the remainder.

Look for the following numbers in the following places:
22 Japanese marionette tokusatsu.
28 Mid-2000s American SF movie.
37 Late70s/early 80s US SF TV series.
39 Mid-80s SF US animated movie
54 Late 80s US SF live-action movie
56 Late 70s US SF live-action movie, based very loosely on a classic SF novel
58 Minor robot character in an early 2000s SF movie featuring a LOT of other robots
65 Early 80s US cartoon, working for the main villain
81 Mid-90s US TV pilot for a TV series that never happened
85 Mid-80s UK SF children's TV series, voiced by a Carry On actor well known for his distinctive voice and hence for his voice over work.
88 Early 2010s US cartoon, whose creator is better known for labs and clones.
93 From an episode of a British sitcom; the episode is from the early 80s, though the sitcom began in the early 70s.
95 UK TV advert series, began in mid-70s and ran for years. If you look closely, you can see him holding what he was helping sell.
99 Late 80s UK animated movie. Another character from the same series of movies is in the picture and has already been identified.
109 Video game character, with a very SF name,
111 Early-70s UK TV adverts/public information movies. Maybe this was the droid Vader was looking for?
112 From an early 2000s episode of a long-running US animated series. 
116 Company mascot
123 Late 70s US TV series; I'd say live-action, but that's not exactly true.
126 From an episode of a mid to late 70s UK children's sitcom; more fantasy oriented normally, despite the robot.
130 2010s US TV SF series, a spin-off from a show with some much better known robots, who are also on here and have been identified already.
142 and 143 - both from a mid-80s UK children's cartoon series
145 Late 60s UK SF children's series, animated but not cartoon. 
146 Villain from an early 1980s UK children's cartoon. 
154 Late 90s UK game show (though there was later a US version of this series)
158 Early 80s UK TV series, animated but not cartoon. The opposite number to an already-identified other robot in the picture.
164 Late 90s British/German co-production live action SF series.
166 Late 70s UK children's cartoon.
173 Early 80s US children's SF show; character's name is in the title
177 Late 2000s US animated movie, based on an anime
179 Late 2000s US animated SF movie
C Early 2000s Korean animated series; has aired in the US
G Late 80s US movie, starring someone better known for something other than acting
R Mid to late-90s Canadian animated series
T Late 90s US animated movie, based loosely on a British novella.

All correct. As previously noted, it's ironic that Android's choice of mascot is actually a robot, rather than an android.

Apparently it's a Gardener Mecha, but you wouldn't know that designation from just watching the movie.

All new identifications are correct.
