'Homersapien'--a bot for the rest of us

Wowwee morphs its best-selling bot with Spider-Man too

We've never been big fans of the "Robosapien," figuring that it would probably get stomped by more powerful bots if it ever got into trouble at a robo-bar. But the "Homersapien"? Now we're talking. Everyone's favorite animated dolt has been morphed into a version of Wowwee's best-selling robot, along with Spider-Man, at the London Toy Fair.

The "Spidersapien" speaks Spidey-talk and "pretends to shoot webs with 'Web-shooter' noises," according to Pocket-lint. The Homersapien, on the other hand, doesn't do much other than utter monosyllabic phrases, true to its roots. We wouldn't want it any other way. (Doughnuts not included.)
