It'll be nearly a year and a half since it was first introduced at CES 2006
, but the Robosapien RS Media
-- already available in the UK -- is finally poised for a US release this summer. According to a Wowwee representative at a media event this evening, the multimedia-focused humanoid (as you may recall, it rocks a digital video camera, chest-mounted LCD, and MP3 playback capabilities) will retail for a cool $300, but those three Benjamins do get you the most interactive and customizable Robosapien on the market. Sadly, despite the many petitions we've sent to Wowwee, that popular flamethrower accessory
is not included.
