For fans of the 1956, Fred M. Wilcox film
"Forbidden Planet" and collectors of classic and
antique toys and figurines, this is somewhat of
a rare find. It's "Robby The Robot"!
Robby the Robot was the star of the first
multi-million dollar science-fiction epic
"Forbidden Planet" starring Leslie Neilson,
Walter Pidgeon, and Anne Francis. Segueing from
big screen productions Robby made an effortless,
and successful transition into television; where
he later starred in many classic shows such as
"The Thin Man", "Lost in Space", "The Twilight
Zone", "The Addams Family", and "The Love Boat",
to name a few.
An authentic replica, 1/5 scale, Robby the Robot
is a 16" plastic robot, manufactured by Masudaya
in Japan in 1985. Comes with the original manual in
Japanese and styrofoam packaging. Just pressed the
button, and he talks!
For fans and collectors of all sorts, this is
definitely a piece of nostalgia that can't be
found just anywhere.
Dimensions: 18" x 9.5" x 7"
