Day the Earth Stood Still Giant Gort Robot for Sale

by Paul Strauss

This huge animatronic Gort robot comes to us courtesy of the classic 1951 science fiction flick, The Day the Earth Stood Still. Now, this imposing fella can be yours if you’re ready to pony up the dough.

Gort Robot Day the Earth Stood Still

Up for auction over on eBay (current bid is over $4000), the museum-quality replica is eight feet tall, and features some remote-controlled mechanical moves. It’s big enough that the seller is only allowing local pickups (I wouldn’t want to try and cram this thing into a mailbox either). The fiberglass reproduction was handcrafted by the robot builders at Fred Barton Productions, and has been on public display for the last few years.

I’d like one of these out on our front porch to scare those annoying door-to-door petitioners and religious zealots away.

Even yelling “Klaatu barada nikto!” won’t stop this one.
