C cell battery Robby Mechanized Robot from Forbidden Planet
Circa 1956 - This is the very rare C cell battery operated Robby Mechanized Robot from Forbidden Planet, This is the first issue from Nomura with the smaller C cell batteries which were found to be too small for powering the robot and soon ran out of volts. Nomura quickly brought out a D cell powered version which is the more common one. Note the legs are shorter and battery compartment litho refers to UM-2 batteries, not UM-1. Also please note I have borrowed the images from an old ebay listing (November 2008) as I do not have one of these and as they are so rare and valuable, probably never will.
