I'd like to have a little Johnny 5 on my desk. I couldn't find anything on ebay.

Your best bet is to get a Wall-E figure, and just tell people he's a Johnny 5000.

Those little Johnny 5s in Short Circuit 2 looked great, at least when I was a kid.

I just watched part 2 earlier. That's what got me thinking about it.

I grew up in Toys R Us when the SC movies came out. There weren't any back then.

I believe you're right. I've been doing some searching and I haven't found anything. With the amount of action figures out there I'm surprised that it's never been done. Really all they would need to do is one of the robot. I doubt there's a high demand for Steve Guttenberg or Ally Sheedy figures.

I have found some interesting sites. This site is about a girl's quest to find landmarks from the movie. She found the house from the first one and got to see Johnny 5 at the special effects company. She's a little too obsessed with the movie though.

Are we sure Johnny 5 wasn't a prototype Terminator?

Those treads look just like the ones on that giant tank machine from Kyle's flashbacks.

And his eyes do get red when he is going to hurt/kill.
