We recently picked up a new I-Sobot, and it is certainly a lot of fun. You can read our review and get all the details here:

We plan to subject our little I-Sobot to all the same tests that we have run on the Robonova in our Human Emulation project.
Which robot more closely mimics human motions; the $1,000 robot, or the $300 robot?
Stay tuned to find out.

We bought the Japanese version of the I-Sobot that comes with white body coloring and blue trim, as opposed to the black body coloring and grey trim of the English speaking version. Check out our comparison of the two versions here .

Good review and comparision. Congratulations.

You're right - there are no significant performance differences between the Japanese and English models other than the language dependent functions like voice recognition and speech, and the packaging.

By the way, there is also a black body/grey trim Japanese version currently being sold in Japan.
