    ....otherwise known as the GONK Droid!!! My boys and I love the GONK....every movie we look for them. In TFA when Poe is reunited with Finn, if you look behind Poe's X-Wing you will see another of the mightiest droid in the SW Universe.

    From Wookiepedia: The GNK-series power droid, also known as the gonk droid, was a type of well-known power droid[3] manufactured by Industrial Automaton.[1] They were often referred to as Gonk droids in imitation of their simple vocalizations.[3] The Alliance to Restore the Republic modified GNK units so they acted as weapons. Once deployed, those droids would march slowly across the battlefield, until they collided with an enemy building and explode.[4]

    Here is the sound of the mighty GONK:

    In Chronology, Gonks first appeared in ANH.....and they were in every movie except for AOTC and ROTS!

    I started a long post, asking why the hell we should talk about Mario Bros and his dumb chimpanzee in a SW forum.
    After 20 lines of pure hatred, I suddenly realized that GNK GONK simply don't eat bananas, nor they kidnap princesses.


    Beware of counterfeits! The ONLY GENUINE GNK GONK is conceived and produced by INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATON since 1977.
    Shigeru Miyamoto trolls us since 1981 with his brutal and stupid monkey.

    Allways remember : there is a heart and a soul under this humble servant !

    I love how from this angle, it looks like GNK is also walking out purposefully with Jyn and the Rebels- sort of an Armageddon Walk moment, if anyone still remembers that movie.

    @cawatrooper Yeah I heard there was a deleted scene with the Gonk droid in R1...

    Jyn: "Hey Cassian, is that a Gonk droid next to you?"

    Cassian: "Yes....its name is .....GONK"

    Gonk Droid: "Gonk......Gonk......Gonk......"

    Jyn: "How RUDE!"

    I seem to recall Mark Hamill saying the Gonk Droid is his favorite.
