Prosthetic Body Parts of Sci-Fi Calendar

After reading Mad Dog's article about eye-patches I was inspired to come up with another obvious category. Throwing back a nod to Ancient of Mumu with the calendar concept.... or a top 10. My criteria used to winnow it down to a dozen was... movie or TV but no anime/cartoon/comic... only humans. It's not so much about the character as it is about the body part... has to be cool and preferably it has uses beyond what nature intended. Many of the characters in this article have gone on to become memes and have been mocked, copied, or otherwise been paid homage in other movies. Sci-Fi is liberally applied as I wanted to keep the title consistent with the original.

A couple others worth mentioning:

Mr. Igoe (Innerspace) - He has a metal cap on his right wrist that can accept myriad attachments; including a gun that fires through the tip of the index finger, an acetylene torch, a drill bit, a vibrator, and just a normal prosthetic hand.

Skip the henchman (Darkman) - His wooden leg holds a machine gun that can be fired without removing it from the leg.

Reading this is the first time I've sort of understood what transabled means (which is still underlined as if it isn't a word yet). That black prosthetic limb looks awesome.

"Everybody wants prosthetic foreheads on their real heads." wow, TMBG was ahead of their time I guess.

Luke Skywalker's hand.

Steve Austin's legs, arm and eye.

Jamie Summer's ear.

I may have gone with Locutus of Borg and Merle from Walking Dead.

Luke Skywalker, 6 million dollar man and woman all made honorable mention. Their prosthetic stuff didn't have enough presence on the screen visually to get me off and crack the top 12. Iconic for sure though. Some of the other people brought up in thread are all worthy as well, just a bit obscure. I will readily admit the woman with the beer filled leg does not deserve to make the list.... But... Itt's a beer filled leg! For cry out loud! How could I keep that out?

Thanks for participating in the discussion though.
