Fans of vintage science fiction will perk up when they see the Robby the Robot Black and White Version Die-Cast Figure because he’s probably one of the most recognizable characters in sci-fi history.
First seen in an almost villainous light on the movie poster for the 1956 movie, “Forbidden Planet,” many sci-fi fans were a bit disappointed that no scene actually existed in the film where Robbie carries off a woman; but that didn’t stop the recognizable figure from becoming a sci-fi icon, and the endurance of his popularity was proven in 2004 when Robby the Robot was inducted into the Robot Hall of Fame.
The die-cast version of Robby stands 7-inches tall, has 12 points of articulation, and a black-and-white color scheme, and he comes packaged in a box that contains some eye-catching retro-style artwork.
Add a classic to your collectibles with the Robby the Robot Black and White Version Die-Cast Figure. It will be available October 2013, but can pre-ordered now for $74.99 at Entertainment Earth.
