Droid Power Rankings

Tonight is Star Wars Night at Dodger Stadium!

IG-88 fantasizing about taking it to the hoop, from Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II (recommended to all Star Wars fans).

1
R2-D2
WALL•E's grandfather! Just the coolest.
2
IG-88
Just imagine if he (she? It?) could move!
3
Pit Droid
Token prequel pick; a single pit droid had more personality than Jake Lloyd.
4
R5-D4
Makes the entire Original Trilogy happen. Think about it.
5
Probe Droid
Poor thing was just doing its job when Han Solo killed it.
6
IT-O Interrogator
Dr. Ball, M.D.!
7
Mouse Droid
Sound designer Ben Burtt made it come alive!
8
FX-7
For reasons unknown this Star Wars figure delighted me as a kid.
9
Gonk Droid
A.k.a. Power Droid. And what Power Rankings aren't complete without a Power Droid?
10
C-3PO
His agent lobbied for a spot in the Droid Power Rankings. Damn blogger politics!

Dr. Ball made me laugh.
"Why don't you get on your knees and pray? We don't have knees, motherf**kers!"

Just what I needed to cheer me up.

What if you opened up the rankings to all droids? Where would you rank Wall-E?

Four consecutive Star Wars posts. Nice.

Those other astromechs that got shot off Queen Amidala's ship (while R2 was busy saving everyone's ass) are the Nationals of the Droid Power Rankings.
