Meet Wrex, the uncouth robo-dog

He's described as an ill-mannered toy that's "absolutely terrible at being a dog and even worse at being a robot."

It's been a busy few days for the guys over at RobotsRule. First they got a hands-on look at the " Tri-Bot ," successor to the once-beloved Robosapien, and now they've set their sights on "Wrex The Dawg."

The latest creation from WowWee's bot meisters is an ill-mannered toy that's "absolutely terrible at being a dog and even worse at being a robot," the site says, "with an appearance that resembles Frankenstein's Dog if he were assembled from a disjointed set of junkyard parts and a face not even a mother could love." Not only that, but he's given to malfunctioning intentionally. How charming.

Actually, despite these dubious attributes, there is one thing worth witnessing: Its impersonation of the outgoing Robosapien. Talk about kicking a bot when he's down.
