Nice find.

Man, humanoids are coming out so fast that we can't keep up anymore! This is the first I've seen of this and we sell them all, LOL.

It's certainly sounds intriguing, but there's no contact info anywhere to be found and half the links on the site go to missing.html. We would be interested in talking to them to see if it would be worth carrying. If anyone finds a contact let us know.

Its made by The World Models Manufacturing co. I will send you the phone # via PM. The site will be updated within a month. And they should be rdy for US sale before X-mas. They are having some over seas regulatory issues but I will hopefully be ironed out soon.

Droid - do you know any specs on the servos, it sounds like it will be an impressive robot for the price, but I wonder how they're hitting the pricing. Since servos typically make up the bulk of the cost - cheaper servos would keep the price down I mean you look at a decent servo for a typical humanoid and $30 - 40 is fairly low end in power for full humanoid - which your talking in the 600 - 800 just for servos. Sounds almost to good to be true.

It's being made in China. That's one cost reducer right there.

Thanks Scotty:) Surprisingly, I must've completely missed that ad every time I opened up that issue, haha!

Does any one know when the RoboPhilo will be available for sale? I saw it at the IHobby Show this weekend and it was quite impressive.

10-21-2007, 05:25 PM
not too sure on when it will be available. Matt was talking to the guys that created the RoboPhilo at iHobby, so he might be able to shed some light on this. I do know that once it is, we'll be carrying it:) It is a pretty cool robot, huh? Keep an eye out on our blog because we'll have a writeup on it once we finish editing the video.

What did you like best about it?

Are the brackets for the Robophilo made of plastic or aluminum?

02-07-2008, 02:36 PM
Plastic for sure. At that cost I don't see how they could afford to use aluminum.

02-07-2008, 03:41 PM
yep, they're made of Plastic. It is a budget bot, but definitely really cool.

02-08-2008, 08:52 AM
It is definitely a good bot if you are new to humanoids. I am thinking about buying another one just because of the cost.
