Powered by a nickel-plated brass boiler double-acting Wilesco steam engine, it is part of a limited edition of 100 from Tucher and Walther with a humongous price of $1,495.00.

If that is a bit past your budget, they also have a Wind-up Dancing Tin Robot. At a size of 2 x 4 x 6", this is also a limited edition of 1,000 for $139.00.

Robotic Gizmo Performs

gizmo.jpg

The Gremlins have returned! This robotic Gizmo sings and dances his way into your heart. At a size of 8" tall and with an 11" ear span, the Plush Mogwai sings the original song in the movie. He comes with his own batteries so you can wake him up that much quicker. Just remember not to get him wet, expose him to bright light or feed him pizza after midnight.

Remy's Nike Transformers Step Up

niketransformers12.jpg

Transformers are always popping up somewhere, but this is the first time we have seen them as footwear, well almost. You can't really wear them, but wouldn't it be something to be able to run towards danger instead of away from it? Check out Remy's Transformers that include gaming controllers, vehicles and keychains.

Must Have: Monster vs. Aliens Clone Robot

clonerobot.jpg

"Monsters vs. Aliens" has only been out about a month and already the market is flooded with licensed products. We found a 6" Clone Robot with fire boost that will launch missiles from his head and Gallaxhar's Space Attack UFO that houses both the evil genius and the robot and drops two bombs. And although the movie won't be out for renting/purchasing for awhile, you can always play your fave character in a game on Nintendo DS or Wii.

Takara Tomy Robo-Q Pets

tomypets.jpg

Takara Tomy is working on a new line of robot pets that utilizes the technology from their Robo-Q series. Details are sketchy at this point but supposedly they will have some interactive features. As the originals could detect objects and play ball, we suspect that maybe these little buggers will do likewise.
