Kind of steep for a robot that stands only 3.75 inches tall, but for $12.99+tax
you can now get the Toy Story 3 Sparks Robot from Toys-R-Us:

So what are you saying? There are 2 versions of Sparks robot? one is 3.5 inches and one is 6 inches and the 6 inch one costs less that the 3.5 inch one? Do they have any functions?

Well, the ads don't give much info on the figures. The 6 inch ads says:

"Disney Pixar Toy Story 3 Action Figure - Seek n' Destroy Robot features:

* 6 inches in height
* Full articulation
* Fun toyetic action"

I have no idea what "toyetic" action means huh.gif ...that's not even a word. The only main difference appears to be the size and the extend-able arms. I assume the claws open too. I'll know more when it gets here.

I picked up one of these Sparks Robots the other day at TRU.
It came in a window box marked Adult Collection. This was the $12.99 version.
Collectors edition = higher detail (NOT) and higher cost.
Highth is more like 21/2 inches and does not do any thing but roll on wheels.
Arms and head are posable.
Nice design.
Still looking for the bigger one.
Have Fun!

Well, it finally arrived...I can finally put to rest the explanation of "toyetic" action huh.gif . I suppose it has something to do with the movements it performs in the movie; in addition to the features Mr. Jan mentioned with the smaller version, when you press a panel on the large robot's back the spring loaded telescoping arms extend, but the claws do not open...Tadaa!! blink.gif That's it, show's over folks, nothing else to see here, go on home. laugh.gif

I thought those little ones might be on the lame side, but Wal-Mart (and Amazon, etc) has a cool 10" tall version that launches Hot-Wheel cars (or maybe custom-made rockets, eh?) out of its feet! And it's priced right too; less than $12 at WM stores and a couple bucks more at Amazon.
