Forbidden Planet is a classic science fiction film from 1956. The film had a character that for its time, was one of the most unique robots. This Lego “Robby The Robot” is based on that character, and is built by j-p-30. This robot is completely built out of official Lego pieces. Lots of hoses and tires went into this build. The technique of folding a tire inside-out is used here for the lower torso area. The smoothness breaks up the tire tread texture from the legs. Giving the robot more contrast between its parts. The glass dome is a Lego cockpit filled with all sorts of tiny pieces to recreate the mechanical face and brain. A few custom stickers helps to lend detail to the control panels. These retro robots would prove popular in all sort of movies, tv, and toys.
