A while back, Seibertron.com reported on a new concept robot that British developers were creating based off of designs done by Transformers artists Andrew Wildman and Don Figueroa.

The UK was first to see these RC controlled robots to hit store shelves and now the US can look forward to seeing them as well.

Features

* The MechRC Robot comes pre-assembled.
* Designed by the Transformer artist so there is startling likeness to the Transformer form.
* The 'bot sports 17 servos with 180 degree movement..
* Metal Gear Servos with 13kg-cm torque!
* Audio can be played through the speaker in the robot's chest.
* More than 100 moves are pre-stored on the robot - see him throw some serious shapes fit for the dance floor or reveal his killer fighting moves.
* An easy to use 3D visual interface is used for programming.
* The robot is manipulated in an animation film strip making customizing seriously user-friendly.
* IR remote control.
* Lithium battery pack and charger.
* MechRC Commander software CD ROM.
* USB/Serial communications cable.
* User Guide.
* Requires a PC (not Mac compatible).
* Suitable for ages 14 years+.
* Size: 36 x 32 x 15cm.


Trossen Robotics is now shipping these new creations and have posted a fully detailed information page with videos displaying all the cool tricks these bad boys can do. You can see that page here.

Unfortunately, this may be out of reach for the average consumer, sporting a pricey tag $599.99 USD.

I saw the first post for this one a while back and it's very impressive. But the steep price tag will be the bane of this one. :-(

Thanks for the plug guys!

I've been working on this for 3 years now, so if anyone has any questions about MechRC, I'd be more than happy to answer them.
