ROBOTS: FROM MOVIES TO TOYS
The exhibition Robots: From Movies to Toys will take place at the Musée des arts et métiers in Paris, from July 23rd 2013 to January 5th 2014.
ScienceFictionArchives.com, in partnership with the Musée des arts et métiers-Cnam (Paris), with support from La Grande Récré, Hasbro and Universal, is proud to present a selection from its collection of robots, created for some of the greatest science fiction films ever produced in Hollywood, as part of the Robots: From Movies to Toys exhibition
Visitors will discover the origins of robots and what differentiates them from early "automates", and be able to admire cyborgs and other droids from the most important science fiction movies like Robotrix from Metropolis, T-800 from Terminator, Bumblebee from Transformers or even the real R2-D2 from Star Wars. The question will be asked: Does Robots from the movies that inspired the manufacture of toys, or is it the reverse?
Following their consecration in the movies, robots have left the world of dream and fiction in order to get in our lives as action figures and toys. By providing a showcase of original movie props and collectible toys that have marked the history of cinema, Robots: des films aux jouets offers, in one room, an approach both entertaining and fun that will delight sci-fi fans but also adult and kids!
