OK, first of all, we didn’t even know Singapore had a Universal Studios theme park. Secondly, why the frak do they have a dueling coaster based on Battlestar Galactica, and all we have are 15 different Batman The Rides?
Choose your side – HUMAN or CYLON – as you engage in the ultimate intergalactic battle between good and evil on the world’s tallest dueling roller coasters! Themed after the hit television series Battlestar Galactica, these spectacular, intertwined coasters offer a truly exhilarating adventure as you twist, turn and drop in an intense aerial dogfight. Riders on both coasters will experience unbelievable thrills as they race towards each other and nearly collide!
Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN® Zooming at speeds of 82.8 km/h, the HUMAN Viper Mark II is a seated coaster that propels you 14 storeys into the air while pursuing your enemy
Battlestar Galactica: CYLON® The CYLON Raider is a suspended roller coaster that will turn your world upside down as it runs through a vertical loop, corkscrew and cobra roll.
Ok, so imagine all of these cosplay ’bots or ‘borgs are in a robot battle royal. Who comes out the victor?
Scanning over this great poster by artist Richard Sargent, we were stunned by the number of robots we recognized, but even more by the ones that were hanging out there just on the edges of our memories. There are some easy ones like both versions of the Lost in Space Robot, Gort, Rosie, R2-D2. Then some more obscure like Robot Chicken‘s Humping Robot, iZac the bartender from Futurama, and Bill & Ted’s robot doubles. Then there are those that look so darned familiar but we just can’t place, in particular, the dog on the right edge with the beacon light on his back, and the ‘bot about three ‘rows’ down and three in (in between Conky and Daggit) with the red bow tie.
How many can you name? And who is missing? (We don’t see The Iron Giant or Vision anywhere) Let’s compare notes in the comments!
