The Genuine 7 Foot Robby The Robot

Available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, this is a special edition, life-size, fully animatronic remote-controlled version of Robby, the robot from the classic 1956 film Forbidden Planet. Standing seven feet tall, Robby is created from the same blueprints, molds, and templates used to create the original costume. Robby is made by renowned artist Fred Barton, the man commissioned to restore the original robot after its sale to a Southern California prop museum in 1970. Every mechanism is handmade of the finest materials, and this version is remote-controlled. The robot is pre-programmed to deliver his famous lines from the original movie, and the remote control allows you to adjust the robot's volume, track selection, and start and st op functions. Robby can also be prompted to move his computer relay assembly, rotate his servo-controlled head, spin his planetary gyro stabilizers, and rotate his scanners while his various lights flash. The integral audio system produces CD-quality sound projected from a directional speaker system in the head and synchronized with the neon tube lights (the sound system can be connected to a home theater system), and you can project your own voice through Robby's sound system with the wireless microphone (included). Robby's electronic brain incorporates advanced microprocessor-controlled technology, and the body is constructed of rugged Fiberglas which will not warp over time like thermoformed plastic. All metals in the robot are machine-grade brass, titanium, and aluminum to ensure lasting durability and quality. Robby is signed by the artist and by designer Robert Kinoshita, and officially licensed by Turner Entertainment. Certificate of authenticity included. Plugs into AC. 84" H x 42" Diam. (100 lbs.)
