Robby the Robot

Terrence - Robby Robot (2006)The ray-gun from Forbidden Planet (next post down) reminded me of Robby the Robot created for the same movie. This version is a PhotoShop redesign by Terrence for a Worth1000 competition: Robby as he might have been painted by William Bouguereau, the master of the fluttering cherub. (The Aussie PM would throw a wobbler if he saw this.) If you haven't visited the Worth1000 website, you're in for a treat. There are regular competitions with all sorts of themes and a huge gallery of past winners (title link). Don't miss Forbidden Planet when it's next shown on TV. It has one of the scariest climaxes I've even seen: "monsters of the Id".
