Several years ago, when we saw some of the earliest Bioloid robot kits for education we gave them an 8.0 (out of 10) for functionality and price/performance, and a 3.0 for style.
As good as the early kits were, the overall image and design left a lot to be desired. They had great teacher appeal, but would never have gotten the adreniline pumping in the heart of young manga reading, video game playing, Transformers and Gundam addicts.
Now, with the release of the Bioloid Premium Humanoid Robot kit, Bioloid has certainly addressed the style and image problems in spades.
