PROTOTYPE PENNY ROBINSON ACTION FIGURE
Here is the unproduced Penny Robinson action figure from the
Lost in Space film. To my knowledge, only two of these exist.
She nevere even got to the test shot devolpment stage. I think
the reasons are that back in the day, female figures were also
produced in lower quantity because of sales and interest. But
what also put Penny Robinson down for the count may have been
The figure comes with Penny's backpack that she used to work
on the hull of the Jupiter-2. In the scene though, Penny had
two wires coming down her side, and when we first see her, she
is working upside down. The backpack though is based off that
sequence, but the sequence was never added into the final
release of the film. She later gets distracted by the Blawp
(yellow alien monkey), and follows him into another time
bubble where she meets the future blawp.
This would have been a figure I feel a lot of people would
wish to have been produced? To my knowledge even Lacey Chabert
the actress who played Penny even went to the store to search
for this figure and was unhappy she couldn't find it!
