Japan Amazon Sells "Cardbo"

We know Japan loves their bots, but we think this is more of a "we can get you to buy anything" kind of thing. The country's Amazon is actually selling these 13cm tall bots based on their "Cardbo" manga character. They are charging ¥2,200 (~$20.00) for the battery run bot and are limiting orders to 2 per person. We couldn't figure out if they were made of plastic or simply leftover packing boxes, but for that price, we could build you guys something nice out of an empty toilet paper roll and a couple of cardboard mini-boxes.

It's actually merchandise inspired by the manga Yotsuba&, specifically from a chapter about a grade school project.
