I think that was his name...
I had to draw a robot for one of the math books I worked on last year, doodle-style, so I based him on one of those weird old robots from the seemingly inappropriately-named "Maxx Steele" line of toys from the 80's.  They were kinda "inaction" figures--not a lot of articulation--but they did have gimmicks like crusher arms and hidden compartments and a suction cup base.  This dude's faceplate would pop up to reveal some lasers or something.
Inspiration comes from weird places, like the recesses of forgotten aspects of your childhood, for sure.
