Must Have: Robby the Robot Lives on Through Hallmark

Every year, Hallmark comes up with a few keepsakes for the holiday and this year is no exception. The 41/2" battery operated Robby the Robot is aimed at fans and even talks. Due out in October, you can add it to your wish list for $18.50.

In the meantime, we have found the definitive homage to Forbidden Planet with the Ultimate Collector's Edition. Included is a remaster of the original 1956 release, lobby cards and a second disc with "lost footage" (special-effects test footage,) "The Invisible Boy," a 1957 flick that featured Robby and "Watch the Skies: Science Fiction, the 1950s and Us," a 2005 documentary from TMC. You also get a 3" die cast Robby, but alas, it doesn't speak.
