The Genuine 7-Foot Robby The Robot.Life-sized Robby Robot One of my all time favorite films is Forbidden Planet. I love Robby the Robot and I would love to have this life-sized version of this famous robot. But with a price tag of almost $50,000 I say only a few folks like the guy who owns the Science Fiction Museum could afford one.

Besides not being able to pay for the sucker where the heck would I put him? I wouldn’t mind sticking him right next to the sofa, but I do think my better half would have something to say about that. We can’t have too much of my sci-fi geek out in the open you know!

I just got the WALL-E soundtrack, well actually score, the other day.

WALL-E sound track is pretty good. I have always been a fan of musical scores while I work. The lack of lyrics is less distracting for me. Listening to this music, which is some times, interrupted by robo-speak and sound effects has really gotten me hyped up to see the film, I could live without the two songs from Hello Dolly, but perhaps once I see the film their inclusion on the sound track might make sense.

I love robots and I love Lego. So what better combo for me than a Lego Robot? I have the first version of the Mondstorms system and really need to get myself the new one. I love the new functionality and the new look (not such a fan of the technic sets so I was disappointed when this was first announced, but I guess there is only so much one can do with the good ole brick).
