Problem. There has been no topic for the greatest droid in the Star wars universe.
Solution. Thread has been started. Discuss meatbags.

As starter of the topic, shouldn't you also get the discussion started Skid?
Where do you want to start?

HK 47 is an assassin droid. Big deal

Shocked Blasphemy! Now if you'd watched those videos of KOTOR I keep trying to talk you into, you wouldn't say such things.

When you think of famous droids, R2, C-3PO, IG-88, and 4-LOM come to mind. The classic droids. Grievous was a cyborg so he doesn't count. But HK-47, he raised the bar on amusing droid. Sure R2 twirtled and tweeted, but HK actually had dialog, and on top of that, a very wicked sense of humor. I don't think anyone will ever be able to write a droid that can top HK-47.

Ah, but they don't have much in the way of personality. The only stand out moment for them is when they call out, in the Vong language, something like 'We are droids. We are better than the Yuuzhan Vong!'. Even that was programmed into them. HK comes up with sadistic, yet humorous, quips all on his own.

Not even close. But if you don't really know the character I understand why you act this way.

Before this goes any further, let me clarify that HK-47 is on the top concerning Star War droids. Futurama is a class of itself Cool

HK has a whole plethora of sadistic, torture related lines. Bender just has a thing for his tush, and reiterates that one line, over and over again.

HK-47 stole the term meatbag from Bender. Bender has a much larger repertoire of self-aggrandizement and depreciation of others, I just chose that video to illustrate HK-47's thievery. I'd like to see him top this.

I see nothing wrong with the term 'meatbag' being stolen. Happens quite a lot!

Well, if they can come up with a way for droids to have kids, I'd like to see that, too!
