REMCO MECHANICAL MEN ROBOT (REPRODUCTION)
This is a casting of an authentic 12" Remco LOST IN SPACE Robot toy
from 1966. The idea was not to create a straight duplicate of the
toy itself -- but to make an accurate remake of "The Mechanical Men"
props from the episode by the same name. As you recall, all the
mechanical men/robots were redressed Remco toys. Here, though, the
original toy was disassembled and molded in hollow-cast pieces.
The finished assembled casting is hollow and has a bright light in
the chest activated by a button in the back. The arms swing back and
forth freely. In place of the original cardboard cutouts, panels
were constructed to more closely emulate the panels on the full size
Robot costume/prop. A concession to this reconstruction is that it
does not roll as the original did, but rather, is stationary. This
particular piece depicts the standard color scheme of the robots in
Many thanks to, Jerry, & Darryl Hyde on this item!
