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. In vehicle mode, the V-Bot is a full function radio control car with blazing fast digital proportion speed. In robot mode, V-Bot can perform hundreds of combinations of moves using the six action buttons on the control, or press any of the three preprogrammed buttons and watch V-Bot perform a series of action moves to his own music! Or you can use the MP3 jack to plug in your MP3 player and control V-Bot to your own tunes….

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

The Japanese toymaker company Takara Tomy released their new product called “Transformers Sports Label Convoy feat. Nike Free 7.0”. This is actually an new Transformers robot toy which transforms from a pair of plastic half-scale Nike shoes into a robot named “Convoy”. The robot, created as a collaboration between the Japanese toymaker and Nike Japan is already being sold in Japan with a price of 2,625 yen which is roughly about $22. It seems Takara Tomy is targeting this new product more at the adults or at least to the more grown up kids and of course just a few days after its release the Transformers Sports Label Convoy feat. Nike Free 7.0 is already a big hit in Japan.


It seems there are two different versions at the moment – a black and a white one, that seem to be identical except for the color…

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. Authentic R2-D2 sounds, turning head and red LED eye complete the package. No more playing with your old-school Star Wars figures by shaking them and talking in a funny voice, this is the real deal… and we don’t kid when it come to Star Wars. We would have killed for this little R2 gem as a kid and it’s still pretty damn cool as an adult.

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.
