Would Wowwee ever make Bipedal Robots again?

Hey everyone,Its probably been like 2-3 years since I came back and saw a robosapien X on the shelf at Target. I thought to myself, are they actually back or no? I've seen their website last week and saw they made no chnages to the two classics robots. Just renamed as the "X" series, which I found pretty lame.​ By the way "X" is numeral form means 10. So your buying a robosapien v10,....not really. I even saw more new robots but most of them were on wheels, same thing they can't move there arms, all just motion gestures to play with.

So I have this silver RS v2, and others - restoration advice?

Hey. I figured this was the place to ask this.I have a couple of old WowWee robots. A white RS v1, a white RoboRaptor and a silver RS v2. I've had them forever but due to dumb circumstances never got the time I had envisioned to tinker/mod them. Recently hauled them all out to do a check.I just tested out the RS v2 after many years in storage and he woke up and spoke a few words, but then seemed like he had a disconnect (died at the left arm 'stretch'; can be woken up again briefly by flexing the chest casing). I understand this is pretty common for this model after a few searches.

In search of robot tracks/treads

Help--I am a design engineer in Barrie, Ontario and I have been engaged by a customer to design a small residential use robot. I need to find a set of rubber tracks with molded in wire reinforcement and wheels to go with them. I have been pounding the internet for two days, and I'm not having any luck. Where do you fellows buy your track systems?
