There are 2 kinds of people in this world. Those that love Lost in Space, and those that are just incorrect. …maybe 3… I guess I’ll allow for the odd strange lad or lady that hasn’t seen it. Still though, my childhood was well built upon re-runs of Lost in Space. My dreams are frequently filled with a wacky looking robot screaming Danger Will Robinson! Fast forward almost 40 years, and today, has landed on my shelf, the Lost In Space B-9 Robot Vinimate. What is a Vinimate? Picture the same incredible art and design of a Minimate, bigger, more ornate, vinyl, and more statue-esque. Why do you want this one though? Apart from being wrong if you don’t?
The Vinimate design captures B-9 show-perfect here.
Spinning head dome!
His muted grey / silver is strongly contrasted by the explosive red hands.
Scuplt detail here is top notch, all of the lines you remember,
Sharp detail on B-9’s front panel, contrasting colors make the panel look like it’s actually lighting up even though it’s paint.
Of the amazing new Vinimates line of toys, few characters cry out for articulation quite like B-9. Arms that flail was his signature move, I get what Vinimates is going for, I love it…but I would have loved it with flailing arms more.
Who doesn’t want a B-9 in their house? No one…This is an incredibly faithful treatment to the character and should find a happy place on anyone’s shelves!
