Going old-skool retro sci-fi today? Younger generations may be able to place this dude, but not know quite where from. This is Robbie the Robot from multiple sci-fi classics, such as the Lost in Space TV series, the movie Forbidden Planet, several Twilight Zone episodes, and even in animated form in the 1981 film Heavy Metal.
The original Robbie the Robot was a prop costume built on the MGM set, at which point – you never threw away a good prop back in those days – they generously shopped him around as a stock robot character in whatever they had in production. Robot fans, you’ll find much more at our post made on the 100th anniversary of the first robot movie.
