Fred Barton Productions.  Fred Barton was commissioned to restore both the original "Forbidden Planet" “Robby the Robot” and the original ”B9” “Lost in Space” robot.  In 1997 Fred Barton Productions, Inc. obtained the exclusive license from Turner Entertainment Co. to manufacture museum-quality Robby's retooled from the original robot. His Robots are handmade, 100% accurate, and exquisitely detailed. 
  The Robots produced by Mr. Barton are more than a recreation or replica. They are actually clones of the original screen used prop. These robots are created from molds, blueprints, and templates acquired from the original robot. Mr. Barton's robots surpass the originals in look and functionality. Fred Barton is world renowned and considered to be the absolute best in his field.
