Due to the extreme generosity of a fellow AMMO member, at last I am the very excited owner of ROBBY the ROBOT!
(No names of course, to protect the donor, but his initials are DAVE and he has Headquarters in South Central Utah!)
Huge thanks!

Anyway he asked me to re-create the posters and here's the results.
Now of course everybody realises that my Headquarters seems to exist perfectly happily without any females, (as do a few others here I notice) so Robby carries a bloke. Before any protests regarding the deletion of "The Babe", I'd just like to point out that in the movie "Forbidden Planet" despite that lurid poster, the only time Robby is seen to carry anyone at all it is in fact a man.
(It also appears when trying to substitute the figures that model Robbie is in fact a little shorter than film Robby, but he is now a treasured possession.)

Interestingly regarding the last poster, the men's uniforms in the movie are actually blue/grey, NOT red.
I guess the artists were not told, or had seen the movie when the promos were done.
I find this anomaly happens in a lot of old theatre cards.
Here are the originals I worked from.

Nice LeStryge!

I'm glad you were able to get one. I have one and think it's a great piece considering the low cost.

My local Walmart (which this is an exclusive) didn't have any when I checked, but eventually I was
able to get one. I was amazed at the features of this, considering the price.

Congrats!

Daryl

cheers So happy you're making good use of the robot already! And yes, I noticed instantly that your scene with the unconscious spaceman accurately depicts the movie scene rather than the misleading poster art!

I hope you find your time with the robot amusing and inspiring. But be cautious: that Krell technology has a tendency to backfire!

The robot may have been low cost as you say, but just between you and me now, I can tell you that the shipping certainly was NOT!
Dave was VERY generous indeed!

Cool beans, Dave, well done!!!

Great poster work Barry, but I have to say something about the shot of AM being rescued(?) by the robot seems a little wrong, don't know, something about it. I think AM probably shouldn't ever need rescuing...even MAM Wink

I am glad Anne Frances wasn't totally removed (even if she never was carried by the robot in the film) from the posters. She was my first love...

cheers cheers cheers

He's not actually being rescued in the true sense Brian.
He's just passed out due to imbibing far too much of that high quality alcohol Robby is able to perfectly replicate, ....and for free!
Robby is acting as the designated driver.

And of course "first love" is always the dearest!
Every time I hear (or see) "Rocky Horror" I love hearing her being mentioned in the opening tune![/quote]
