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.
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.
"Everybody wants prosthetic foreheads on their real heads." wow, TMBG was ahead of their time I guess.
Thanks for participating in the discussion though.
