Long before robots like R2-D2 or the Terminator hit the silver screen, a 1956 movie called Forbidden Planet featured a humanoid automaton that, in all likelihood, blew your grandparents’ minds. Robby the Robot might be primitive by today’s movie prop standards, but the three-piece costume

BTW, that $2 million in 1956 works out to about $18 million today. (Or, slightly less than what Tom Cruise makes per movie.)

And the jeep vehicle, and some spare/alternate parts, and some replacement stuff, and other neat things.

Yay, Robbie!!!

A loose adaptation of Shakespeare's 'The Tempest', Forbidden Planet is a great movie. And it is especially notable for being one of the biggest inspirations behind both Star Trek and Star Wars.
