Johnny 5 robot from Short Circuit 2

This is an original screen-used, radio-controlled “Johnny 5″ robot from the popular 1988 family comedy, Short Circuit 2. This robot was featured in the film”s opening sequences as well as the “Heard it Through the Grapevine” scene. Standing approximately 15 in. tall, the robot is constructed of metal, plastic, and electronic parts, and is one of the only surviving small size Johnny 5s ever to come up for auction. According to Eric Allard, the creator of the Johnny 5 robots for the film, only five of these small “J-5s” were created for use in the movie. Unfortunately most of them no longer exist due to the rigors of filming and age, and the one or two that have been sold in the past have been incomplete, missing major parts and with extensive damage. Eric Allard kept this Johnny 5 after filming due to its being the most complete and in the best of shape. An amazing example of special effects ingenuity, Johnny 5 has stood the test of time, having proven that a robot could become the starring character of a film and take on many of the human qualities that made Johnny 5 such an emotionally appealing character. Lot includes a remote control. Electronics untested. Special shipping arrangements will apply. Estimated Price: $20,000 – $30,000
