Build Your Own Custom Robot Avatar at My Robot Nation

 |  |  |  |  December 14, 2011

Ever wanted your very own robot? I’m not talking about one that can do your bidding for you, rather a tiny robotic avatar, customized to your liking. Well if that’s what you’re seeking, today is your lucky day. With My Robot Nation, you can create your own custom robot figure with a few clicks of the mouse button.


My Robot Nation uses 3D printing technology to create bespoke robot figurines to your exacting specifications. Simply head onto their website, mix-and-match your choice of head, torso, arms and legs to build your robot body. If you’re feeling whimsical, you can always just hit the “randomize robot” button too.


Once you’ve figured out your robot’s basic form, you can add details like eyes, visors, weapons, and even costumes. Then pick your colors, and even add robot tattoos. You also get to pose your robot at this point, since the finished product won’t be bendable. So pick your pose wisely, since that’s the position your robot buddy will be stuck in for eternity.


Once you save your design, you pick a size, and order up your custom robot. Prices range from $17.99 (USD) for a 2″ tall robot, up to $169.99 for a 6″ tall model. Check it out for yourself over at My Robot Nation now. Be sure to spend some time in the robot Hall of Fame for some cool creations from prior customers.

It’s probably too late to get one of these in hand for Christmas, but they do offer a gift code option you could give instead. Frankly, I think that’s better anyhow, since half the fun is designing your robot in the first place, so why shouldn’t that be part of the gift?
