Back in late 1998, my buddy Sheldon Leemon (author of "Mapping the C-64")
won the grand prize in an online sweepstakes. The prize was a full-size
promotional version of the robot from the remake of "Lost in Space".
It had been touring the USA and Japan. Doesn't look quite the same:
600 pounds, New Line Cinema valued it at $4,500. We debated what we
might do with it, never coming to any good conclusions. I was tempted
to store it in my barn. He never picked it up. It sat in a shipping
yard for months. I think it eventually started running up charges and
was sent back in mid-1999. I wonder where it went!
