Default B9 Robot from Lost in Space


Check out the youtube videos of the B9 Robot from Lost in Space!
These are full size, full function, all-out replicas of the TV show robot.
This is the best toy I have ever seen in my life!
They have all the lights, voice, mechanical movements, everything!
I think they cost $25,000 each, IIRC.

What does B9 stand for ? In the show it was just called Robot, but the owners called it Robbie. Does it have the same voice? Man I wish I could get youtube here at work. [sm=boosign.gif]

Yeah the robot has the same voice. Dick Tufeld did the voice and he's 81 years old now. But somehow his voice sounds the same as it did in the 60's.

The Robot: The Robot is a Model B-9, Class M-3 General Utility Non-Theorizing Environmental Control Robot, which had no given name (Jonathan Harris once jokingly suggested the robot be named "Clawed"). Although a machine endowed with superhuman strength and futuristic weaponry, he often displayed human characteristics such as laughter (usually at Smith, thus provoking the latter's rage), sadness, and mockery. The Robot was designed by Robert Kinoshita (whose other cybernetic claim to fame is as the designer of Forbidden Planet's Robby the Robot) and was performed by Bob May in a prop costume built by Bob Stewart. The voice was dubbed by Dick Tufeld, who was also the series' narrator.
