    5. OMG OMG OMG I am so excited now. I wonder how much it's gonna cost. How can they fight? This will be sooooo awesome to see.
       
    6. Oh I bet it will cost a ton! But I wanna see pictures!!! *_*
       
    7. OMG. This is messed up - but I love it! I want a persocom! Come on Volks, get the Angelic Layer thing going and then make me some Chobits! :grin: I wonder if Ic-chan is working at Volks? o.O Or maybe Mokona from CLAMP is hovering over their shoulders.


      O_O;


      *Runs around like crazy until she falls over, wanting an Angelic Layer and a Chobit. *_* *

      Geez... Once they perfect the whole walking and fighting thing, and are able to make it jump just like a human, and they make a cute girl mold, I'm so TOTALLY buying one, even if I have to take out a loan!
       
    8. Our very own lil Angelic layer dolls! Does this mean all our moms will run away with lame excuses and abandon us?
      /lame AL joke.
       
    9. LOL yeah! And a crazy, slightly-perverted scientist will stalk us! :grin:

    11. I want see how it dances! How can this be possible? Think about the Honda Asimov Robot who isn't very cool and how hard that must be to do. And they say it's for boys, so I hope it doesn't look like a robot. I hope it looks human! MAN why is there no picture? Ugh! Wanna seeeeeeee wanna seeeeeeee
       
    12. It says it will have a vinyl covering, so I assume it will look human.
       
    13. Or it could be a vinyl robot covering...hahaha But I hope you're right. :grin: They say there's a neon version...that would be a funny-looking human.
       
    14. COOL ANgelic layer.......dollssssssssssssssss... :o :o :o :o we need to see pictures...
       
    15. Even if it starts out as robot looking, don't you just know they'll end up making SD-looking robot dolls for the girls? ^_^
       
    16. I dunno if I'm excited or scared. This is way to much like a sci-fi novel. :oops:

      *digs out Angelic Layer*


      ... I'm excited (as long as they're cute)!
       
    17. It sounds cool! Hope we can see the photos soon!
       
    18. Hehe, the natural evolution from robosapien and Aibo... I want to see pics too. I'm not setting my hopes on it for now, but sounds very promising.
       
    19. I wonder if, since it is for guys and has a vinyl body, if it will have a very.... adult body. We all know those naughty Japanese boys! :wink:
