What's the difference between the new Roboraptor and the old one?

Nothing, the robot was taken off shelves for a few years and is back now.

3 years of RC

Do not waste your money on this. It is complete trash, and you will be thoroughly disappointed. I know I was. For one thing, it is made of the absolute cheapest and lowest-grade plastic possible, covered with flashing and rough edges. For another, it cannot walk properly in anything even remotely resembling a straight line on any surface in my house, from hardwood flooring to medium-pile carpet. And it can't walk at *all* on most surfaces -- the hardwood floor where it eventually describes a six-foot circle when told to walk straight is the best it manages. There is no artificial intelligence at all, collision detection does not work for most solid objects regardless of size, and the claimed array of "sensors" are no more than buttons.

It might be worthwhile for $15-20, but no more. Far older designs such as Silverlit's i-CYBIE do far, far more for cheaper.

A total joke and a waste of money.

The good thing is that unlike the other wow wee robots, it uses some normal batteries.
