MYSTERY ISLAND ORIGINAL ROBOT PROP
On Monday September 5, 2005 I received a very special e-mail from an old Lost in
Space fan. Attached were 6 rare photos of our loved space hero the B9 Robot.
As many of you know, this original prop was later modified for the Saturday
afternoon show, Mystery Island.
These 6 photos have never been seen before, until now. These photos were taken
at the Fox lot back in 1987. The fan had a written request to visit the studio
for a future Lost in Space book project. The fan waited as two prop hands carried
the Robot inside a large wooden crate. The Robot was brought out in different
sections. Many parts including the collar was damage from use and time spent
sitting in a crate. A calculator was also placed in the back of the Robots torso,
for that real cheesy special effect look.
This is a true treat for any Lost in Space fan. I personally have searched for
info and photos on Mystery Island, for nearly 10 years. These are the best ever
seen to date. I am amazed what I have found and posted on our site over the
past 6 years. Making our website unique of valueable resource of imformation.
This is truly one of the best found treasures to date.
Special thanks to a dedicated friend and fan for sharing these photos with us!
