As a child of the 80’s I’ll always have a soft spot for robots thanks to years of watching Go-Bots, Transformers, Voltron, Tranzor-Z and even G.I. Joe since the B.A.T. characters were always my favorite. Sadly though it’s now the year 2006 and my childish dreams of having a robot sidekick have gone pretty much unfulfilled.
There is still hope that one day my dream will come true when I see robots like this being released. The KONDO KHR-2HV is actually an upgrade to the KHR-1 model and besides being lighter and faster it now has 17 adjustable joints which allow it to do things like back-flips and cartwheels. And for anyone involved in underground robot fighting the KHR-2HV also has a bigger chest for a muscular look which is sure to strike fear into the stickers used to represent their opponents eyes.
Like most robots that actually do something impressive the KONDO is not cheap and the kit will set you back $1,199.
