Robby the Robot talking and walking robot, manufactured in 1999 by Trendmasters, based on the robot from the 1950s science-fiction classic movie "Forbidden Planet." It's made of heavy plastic and stands about 11 inches tall, and comes with it's own wired remote control. Additional features for this highly collectible toy include flashing lights in its head, and a disintegrator pistol. Pushing a button on the wired remote control causes it to utter one of three phrases from the film, accompanied by flashing lights. Push another button and Robby walks and lights up. Operates with 3 "AA" batteries (included). Colorful box display packaging captures the look and feel of an era.
