Robby the Robot made his debut appearance in the classic 1956 movie Forbidden Planet
and he has since become a pop culture icon. A super-obedient and strong robot, Robby was also a walking biochemical laboratory and even spoke 187 languages. This easy-to-assemble plastic model of Robby comes with concise, fully illustrated instructions. Fully constructed, Robby is posed with his pincher arms extended and measures 8.5 inches tall on a plastic space-rock stand. The set also comes with a detailed painting guide (paints and model glue are not included). Fans may be interested to know that Forbidden Planet
was an adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest
, and the movie's space explorers were the prototype for the Star Trek
crew of the USS Enterprise
