Robby the Robot Model Kit

I don't know if I've mentioned this before or not, but I love model building. I love the scraping, sanding, filling, gluing, & painting. I love the tiny parts on models. I find them absolutely fascinating.

This model, by Round 2 , is something I really want to get my hands on. Robby the Robot is the most iconic robot there is.

Robby first showed up in the film "Forbidden Planet" and made numerous appearances afterwards in shows like "The Addams Family", "Lost in Space", "Columbo", "Wonder Woman", "Mork & Mindy", "Doctor Who", "Futurama" and more. He's been in movies, video games & commercials as well.

This model of Robby stands at 7 1/2 inches high & is labeled as a skill level 2 for ages 10+

He sells for $19.99 over at Entertainment Earth or around $14.00 on

I love the idea of building models, but I'm not very good at it. I'd love to be able to build a Millennium Falcon, or the Galactica, or a Viper.

I love Robby, but he creeped me out in a TV show called Project Bluebook. I don't even remember why. I think it had something to so with stalking one of the characters with a death ray.
