Incubot is the name of the company . Nekobot is the name of the character. Come on you are a regular on Toybox Jack. ;-)

Also keep in mind, everyone, the sales of current projects (Nekobots) are what fund future products like the Voltron .
It is the nature of small self funded companies.

The one drawback of these guys

The one drawback of these guys is that the horns and the joints really just seem too weak to actually carry it around. I'm pretty sure that in any pocket of my backpack, the arms, head and horns would tear out of their sockets within a week.

I'm pretty happy with my single original Nekobot, but I want that catalog pamphlet!

The blue regular release

The blue regular release pictured in this review lived in the front pouch of my backpack this whole year at college, being used two or three times a week at least. They are plenty rugged... the arms can't even be pulled out of their sockets, and the horns have enough flex that they arent going anywhere.

Naw, the arms can easily be pulled out of their sockets (and stuck back in!) if you TRY to :p

The part that broke on mine is the neck, actually. The horns, though, are the real reason I'd never carry it around with me on a daily basis.

Horns Shmorns

Yes, the horns are delicate. I've used my Blue Nekosaur extenseively in-pocket, and one horn is on the verge of coming off.
However, I make that statement only in the interest of accuracy. If you are coming up with reasons NOT to get one, chances are you already have the small 2 gigs of memory issue as part of your arsenal.
The reason to get these are because they are insufferably cool, crisp, cute designs, and are made by local, nice folk who are pursuing a dream. If that doesn't outweigh any reservations you have about getting one, then your heart is as cold as the heart of that nefarious Rat King of HELL.
JBIYH!
