The good folks at Guinness World of Records apparently have confirmed this robot is the "smallest robot in production" at 6.5 inches high. Produced by Tomy (Takara) at USD$299.99, due for early x'mas release in USA...Any of my friends who wants to pre-order this for my present may visit amazon.com ..i am waiting.. :)
