I-Sobot: the Rambo of Toy Robots

by Lambert Varias

A while back we featured a video of the versatile Tomy i-SOBOT shooting at a bunch of rectangular sponges with a bow and arrow. It turns out that the hurting didn’t stop there, as YouTube user paxshikai eventually came up with an armory’s worth of custom weapons for his/her robot, including a gatling gun.

You’ll never guess what its last weapon is. Brace yourself for 5 minutes and 11 seconds of increasingly absurd weaponry and dinosaur slaughter:

The music was so bad but somehow it made the video much more awesome. And now I can’t get the stupid guitars out of my head. You can still find the Tomy i-SOBOT at Amazon for $250 (USD), which incidentally is $50 more than its price when we featured it almost 2 years ago. Weapons not included.

    Geez. $250 bucks now? I paid $99 for my i-SOBOT when I bought it about a year ago. Guess I’d better hang on to the little guy, lest he becomes an expensive collectible.

      Yeah it’s not going to be insanely popular at that price point, but judging by the reviews on Amazon it seems to be worth every penny. If it came with paxshikai’s weapons I’d save up for one. :D
