Own Your Own NS-5 Sonny, Or At Least His Head

By Andrew Liszewski

I’ve never read Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot, but I can only assume the original book is a lot better than the I, Robot movie starring Will Smith from a few years ago. As I recall, it wasn’t exactly a hit, whether you’re going by critical acclaim or box office take, so I’m kind of surprised that someone actually thinks there’s a demand for a replica bust of the movie’s ‘protagonist’ robot known as Sonny. The bust features the same opaque outer housing as the NS-5 robots did in the film, which allows you to kind of see their inner-workings. But for a better look at what makes him tick you can remove the back of Sonny’s head where you’ll find his brain that actually glows thanks to a set of blue LEDs. The bust is powered by a single 9-volt battery hidden in the base, and is available from the Funshop for about $130.

    Opaque means you can’t see through it at all, you’re thinking of translucent.

    Wasn’t Sonny the newer NS-6 model?

  3. I was thoroughly impressed by the movie. Didn’t care that it was different from the book. I appreciated it on its own terms.
