Original Robots Junked?

Postby MCHerbie » Fri Aug 16, 2013 1:42 am


Long time J5 fan. I've wondered and searched the internet for years asking this question.

What happened to all the J5 robots after filming? I know some went to private collectors, but for the most part how many were there and where are they now?

Well, I do know that about 20, if not over 20, were built for the first film, for various stunts and whatnot. Now, if I'm correct, around 5 or so were used for Short Circuit 2, for the main character, beating scene, damaged look, punk look and then gold body look. So in total between 20 and 25. But then again, I could be totally off on that figure. If I am then I do apologize for any misinformation.
