The Takara 'Garage' store in the Coredo building (Nihonbashi) has a great Robosapiens robot promotion going on right now. It features a Robosapiens Santa-
His chief military elf helper -
And a whole cast of supporting Robosapiens elves, all singing, dancing, and making typical Robosapiens caveman sounds-
It's really cute, and seems to be working extremely well. Right now Robosapiens is in the store's "Top Ten" in terms of popularity and sales. This weekend they're introducing two new models, metallic silver and blue.
The drab green Robosapiens looked so cool that I immediately wanted one even though I already have a standard black and white model at home. Unfortunately the green model is for display only and not currently for sale - though who knows, if enough people ask they just might put it on the market.
