Fred Barton & his robotsFred Barton – The Robot Man
Fred Barton is known to many as simply The Robot Man. He restored Robby, the robot from Forbidden Planet, and has branched out to create his own replicas of Gort from The Day The Earth Stood Still, B9 from Lost in Space, the time machine from the class movie The Time Machine, and others. His company, Fred Barton Productions, sells museum-quality Robby replicas, and his site is the definitive source of information about Robby and other movie robots.

The Robot HutThe Robot Hut
John Riggs has build and collected just about every imaginable robot toy and character from any movie or TV show you can name. His Robot Hut, located in Washington state, is open to visitors (by appointment), but his site has photos and video of everything in his vast collection. You can even put on your red/blue glasses and tour the place in 3-D. You'll be amazed and entertained watching John drive his Robby jeep. It was John's story and photos that started the B9 robot building movement in Flint Mitchell's book You Can Build The Lost In Space Robot.
