Robots – Nerdbots – Fantastic Retro-Future Ray Guns

Most of these robot figures (often called "nerdbots") are made from found objects, purely for your esthetic appreciation – and yet one can't shake the feeling that they might one day come to life (as if in some Stephen King story) and invade your cubicle, making shrill R2D2 sounds and mounting attacks on, say, a hated monstrous copy machine in the corner.
