Well we were watching Gremlins for the 10,000th time this afternoon and I was looking up something's about the movie and saw that Robby the Robot was listed and clicked to his Bio, ya he really does have his own Bio and went one or 2 steps further and found that they now make a life size original clone of him that is available at Hammacher Schlemmer for those real robot lovers with LOTS of disposable income.

More on him here,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robby_the_Robot

And if you are one of the real robot freaks with LOTS of disposable income here is where you can get a full size working Robby of your own.

Enjoy

Sweet! big fan.

There is quite a group of robot enthusiast making some fantastic working remote control Lost In Space robots too. My grandson love that old show so we were looking at rc bots last year..

$32,000 !!!

I don't care if the robot's name is Sheila and was life-like in every way... I ain't spending no $32,000 for one.

If your married, that $32K would have been a bargain.

My fav robots of all time was Robby and Gort. Robby had personality and Gort didnt take no crap.
