Jinx - The Robot I Always Wanted

On this anniversary of Yuri Gargarin checking out of our atmosphere and floating around a bit before coming back for some more Vodka, I randomly remembered one of the most awesome robots in Movie history.

Yes, Jinx was the NASA robot which, instead of going mental crazy and attempting to blow up the world with a game of Tic-Tac-To , 'arranged' for a bunch of squeaky clean politically correct Yankees to take a ride into space with Mrs Speilberg.

I've never really wanted to be an astronaut ( blue jumpsuits are so 1986 ), but I've always wanted a kick ass robot.

The closest I got was a Tomy Dingbot...
