Can you name all of these Retro Toy Robots?

While a jetpack would be really great to own, the one piece of future tech I am really looking forward to is the robot. Not the robots you see in factories, those have existed for decades, but the personal robot. The “buddy”. It has been something I have dreamed about before I even heard the name R2-D2 and the promise of the reality of one is best summed up in the eighties toys that were released.

Here is a great gallery of some great ones they had (I wanted them all), can you name them?
