I have been looking for this up here in Canadianland!
But no luck.
I can order it from eBay, but with shipping its over $100.

Anyone in the US wanna buy me one...ship it to me...and trade for some paper models?
I'll give at least $200 worth of papermodelshop.com store credit to anyone willing?

Sorry Cory...back to your project.

...
Cory...the internet is your best friend (when searching for reference),
but I have a number of different toys/models of Robby...if you need a view from a particular angle, I could photograph it for you.

Wow! I dig how you added the girl! I saw several videos about the Walmart Robby, I assumed it would be $40 + tho. Only $20? I'll have to get one at that price. Is it online only, or available in stores? I'll Google that
Thanks for the offer, Dave. I'll hit you up if I get stuck.

And Anne Francis was a pretty hot babe back then, too.

lol, no...sorry...I had a fellow on another forum comment on the Robby the Cubebot...
the suggestion was that he was incomplete without the girl.

So, I mocked up the image in Corel...

but I never created it for realz.

That pose never occurred in the film...just on one of the Forbidden Planet theater posters making Robby look more menacing than he was.

They did that for "Robot Monster". I think it was a common practice at the time. May still be, lol!

Doing some re-working and simplifying some of the parts to better match that elusive image in my head. I'll have some updates later tonight.
