Doest it take dogs on a walk? An other bargain …. Xmas is going to be not cheap this year, lol.

This is the 6 1/2-foot, animatronic remote-controlled version of the B-9™ Environmental Control Robot from the classic Lost In Space® television series that ran from 1965 to 1968. Every detail of the original robot is faithfully reproduced from original archival molds, patterns and blueprints. It is made from fiberglass, acrylic, aluminum, and steel parts, including its rotating torso and radar head, flashing lights, animated ear sensors, and clawed arms.

It can be operated using the included remote control, allowing you to move its torso left and right and activate the robots soil sampler (which comes out of its right tread housing and spins; the robot provides an audible environmental analysis thereafter). The robot has a 240-w att audio system, and speaks 511 pre-recorded phrases performed by Richard Tufeld, the original voice of the robot from the television series (including such familiar phrases as "Danger Will Robinson!") Pulling the robot’s power pack causes it to utter "Aaghhhhhh…" just as it did in the TV series when being shut-down; plugging it back in prompts it to say "Who turned out the lights?"

Oh heck I used to love that show. Too bad I’m not rich, I’d buy it for grins. “Warning, Warning Mr Robinson!”
