I, Robot.

Robby the Robot comes to play. The Official, Special Edition, seven foot high, animatronic, remote controlled Robby the Robot reproduction from the 1956 movie Forbidden Planet. Created from the original blueprints by little green blob-like creatures with furry antenna and suckers for mouths. Nah, just kidding. No joking about the price though – an alien attack inducing $49,999.95. [Thanks Jerry].

 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 stop 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
