Noisy Boy animatronic robot from Real Steel on display...

A mix of Computer Generated Animation and animatronics are used to bring the futuristic world of robot boxing to life in Real Steel. Hugh Jackman plays 'Charlie Kenton', a human ex-boxer and small time robot fighting promoter.

In the movie, after his robot 'Ambush' is destroyed when fighting a bull, he needs a new robot and buys 'Noisy Boy', who was once a contender on the World Robot Boxing scene.

Noisy boy costs $45,000 and to raise the money Charlie pretty much sells his son 'Max', who he's not seen in over ten years, relinquishing custody to the boy's rich aunt and her husband.

Unfortunately Noisy Boy gets ripped apart fighting the vicious robot 'Midas' and afterwards Charlie sells his head as a trophy for $400.

Victor Martinez was the movie's lead concept artist and the robot designer responsible for creating many of the humanoid robots unique looks. The live-action animatronic robots, including Noisy Boy pictured here, were created by Animatronic Supervisor, John Rosengrant, and the team at Legacy Effects.

I love the Japanese Samurai look of this robot and think it's easily one of the most exciting robot designs in the movie.

Apparently the designer Victor Martinez wanted this sleek and flashy robot to incorporate elements of Tokyo's night lights combined with the super graphics of Shinjuku, which his armour is adorned with. His LED forearm displays also flash words like 'NOISY', 'BOY' and 'POW' and 'BAM' when he punches something.

Other parts of his body are banded or striped to give the impression that his armour acts like shock absorbers.

Noisy Boy is controlled by voice command via a headset. Check out the control headset and more original props from Real Steel here at Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props.

These photographs were taken at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on October 12, where the Real Steel robots will be on display until October 19, 2011.
