Growing up, LOST IN SPACE was probably my favorite show. It aired from 1965-1968 and for much of its run it was up against BATMAN (Adam West)-- so kids of the day had to make a choice. I wasn't choosing TV Stations back then but if I were I think Lost in Space would have beat Batman-- which is eventually what happened in the ratings by the way.
Remco Toys made this great version of the Robot from the show-- so great in fact-- they used it in an episode of the show itself! In the classic season two episode THE MECHANICAL MEN although they removed the Lost in Space sticker on the side.
How cool is that???
I had one of these robots as a kid and if it wasn't my favorite toy of all time it should have been. I remember it vividly but it's interesting to see that there were many different color combinations of this robot that were made;
There's a charm to these because they don't look EXACTLY like the TV show robot. Today's toys are like shrunk down versions of whatever they're representing so there is no imagination involved.
They really don't make toys like they used to.
