    Does it exist or was it just a one-off for the movie? It doesn't look like a handmade prototype thing, it looks like an actual toy.

    I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I don't remember what the conclusion was.

    I've wondered about that too. However, I think it might have existed back in the early 80's not sure. Have you tried googling it?

    Far as I know, it was a prop made for the movie.

    I used to call him 'Hightower' back in the day.

    I saw that before - it doesn't give any answers.

    Given the way prop guys work and the picture there, it's probably safe to say it was essentially a kitbash.

    Maybe...but from what? You'd think at least some of the parts would be recognizable - like the head and arms.

    I've always wanted that thing. When I was a kid I had three notebooks filled with (gloriously terrible) drawings of Transformers that I came up with and one was a building bot I named "Sky Scrapper" that looked very similar to the one in Big. I saw Big two or three years after my drawing and was like, "Hey, that's Sky Scrapper!" :lol

    Yeah, I just put it here for reference in case someone recognized it as a KO.

    Looks like just generic battery-powered robot parts.
