Geek Gifts for the Top 1%: The Genuine 7 foot Robby the Robot

If you remember the film Forbidden Planet, you will also remember Robby the Robot. Hammacher Schlemmer's version of Robby the Robot is created using the exact blueprints, molds, and templates used to create the original costume. Robby is built from fiberglass and machine-grade brass, titanium, and aluminum for the best quality and lifetime. Robby is remote controlled by an operator, including a wireless microphone to project your voice through his built-in, directional speaker mounted in the head. Own your copy of this classic for $49,999.95.
