Is it a car? Is it a robot? Who cares – it’s brilliant and it kicks Transformers’ ASS! The V-Bot is the most sophisticated R/C transforming vehicle ever produced. V-Bot combines the excitement of R/C action with the ability to automatically transform to a robot with the push of a button.

Currently you can get the V-Bot robot-car for $299.95 USD

This R/C R2-D2 Action Figure is like a Star Wars fanboy’s wet dream come true. The size of a regular action figure, this tiny droid is fully controllable from the included lightsaber remote.

These mini R/C R2-D2s come directly from Japan and are fully licensed by Lucasfilm.
The RC Star Wars R2-D2 Action Figure is available for $29.99, but is out of stock until around the end of April.
