While we covered WowWee's Wrex the unruly robo-dog a couple months, he is finally available at U.S. e-tail stores. I know we've all been waiting for an unruly, uncouth, ill-behaved robot dog to complement our unruly, uncouth, ill-behaved real dogs, so wait no longer.
- Amazon.com has him for $141 and is currently listed as in stock.
- Buy.com has him for $150, but currently lists him as out of stock.
- Hammacher Schlemmer has him listed for $130, but has an expected ship date of September 26.
- Major retailers such as Target and Wal-Mart don't yet have him.
I have to say, Wrex is pretty frakin' freaky, especially when he does his cat impression as seen in the video. He's definitely no " " in the cute department, but he actually has does have a few more features, including more than 18 different tricks (some of which are detailed here). One trick is that he breaks down...on purpose. OK, that part of the video was actually quite endearing; the farting part, not so much.
Still, I can't wait to terrorize my cats with this guy.
