Lost in Space Robot B9 Replicas

Posted 4 Apr 2006 at 20:12 UTC by steve Share This

Space Productions is mass producing replicas of the Lost in Space B9 robot. The first 10 B9s were recently completed and 5 have already been sold for $18,000 each. While the new replicas have more functionality than previous replicas, they're still pretty much static display units with lights and sound rather than real robots. However, the track assemblies appear to be real, so it might be possible to hack one and turn it into a functional robot without too much cost. The original B9 was created by Robert Kinoshita, who also design Robby. Fred Barton Productions has been selling handmade B9 replicas which range in price from $15,000 to $29,000 for several years. Fred also offers replicas of other famous movie robots including Robby, Gort, Silent Running drones, Maria, C-3PO, even a T2-endoskeleton. If you can't afford an off-the-shelf B9, how about a homebrew B9? If you need help or parts, try the B9 Robot Builder's Club.
