Buy a Robby the Robot

Robbytherobot If you had around £30,000, what would you spend it on? If I’m reading you correctly, I’m guessing a lifesize, fully-operational Robby the Robot, as seen in the classic ’56 sci-fi movie Forbidden Planet.

Robby is built from the same blueprints, molds, and templates used to create the original movie version.He’s "fully animatronic" and can be remote-controlled if you want to scare the neighbours.

You want more realism? Well, this 7-foot-tall robot comes pre-programmed to say his famous lines from the original movie (which escape me right now to be honest). But for even more fun, you can even run your own voice through Robby’s sound system with a wireless microphone (included). Oh the joy of robotic swearing!
