What’s better than a replica of Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet? A life-size fully animatronic, remote-controlled replica of Robby the Robot, of course. Only available from luxury goods purveyor Hammacher Schlemmer, this bot is made by the same artist who restored the original after it was sold to the Southern California prop museum in 1970.

Preprogrammed to speak lines from the movie, you can also project your own voice through the robot’s sound system using an included wireless microphone. One thing it won’t do is walk, however, so if $50,000 is too much for a sedentary, seven-foot robot, this may not be the Robby for you.
