REVIEW: Roxybot

roxybot 03

Background

You probably remember Stuffed Robot’s first plush release – Mellowtron. Well, now that character has a female companion as Stuffed Robot has revealed Roxybot.

One-hundred Roxybots were made. Roxybot was a hot-pink electric guitarist made to play for rock bands that could not find their own. Her system was modeled after past, successful rock stars such as Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Jack White, Jimmy Page, Angus Young, and Keith Richards.

After a widely successful release, complaints began to flood in about Roxybot’s behavior. Stories of Roxybot destroying large amounts of sound equipment during shows, or excessive spending of band money on scarves and sunglasses were rampant. Unfortunately Roxybot had acquired both the brilliant shredding skills and the less than perfect personality of past rock’n’rollers.

In one week all 100 Roxybots had been returned to the factory that produced them. Now, all the Roxybots are sitting around the factory humming guitar rifts and mumbling in raspy English accents. Are these Roxybots really unfit to live amongst us? For the love of music Roxy deserves another chance.

Tag

There's a small patch on the bottom of Roxybot that has your plush's number on it. The Roxybot we received did come with what looks like a piece of an old t-shirt with the background story screen printed on it. The plush is also packaged with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.

Our Opinion

You can go to the Stuffed Robot website and select exactly which of the 100 Roxybots you’d like to purchase. Each number has a different tagline that you can see by scrolling over it. Do you want #53? Well, too bad because that’s the one we’re reviewing right here. Her tagline is “Just because I’m a robot doesn’t mean I act like one.

The first thing that you notice about the plush is the sheer size of it. Roxybot stands 31” in height from head to toe. Both the arms and legs measure 16” long. There’s a lot of material used.

Oh…and who could miss the bright pink color? The plush has plenty of embroidered elements, such as the guitar on her chest, facial features, black square lines and bolt heads. Roxybot is numbered on the underside of the body. There’s a small white rectangular piece of embroidered material that has the number hand printed in black ink.

Roxybot is 100% Glam Rock. You can’t tell me that you don’t see David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust in that face. While Mellowtron was all about being a robot, it seems that this character is designed as a rocker first and a robot second.

The quality on the Roxybot plush is fairly good. There are not many visible strings and all of the embroidering is without issue. The arms and legs, which appear to have vinyl printing applied to them to produce the stripes, are firmly attached.

If you dig the Roxybot character, we wholeheartedly recommend picking one up. For only $35 plus shipping, you get this enormous (over 2 feet tall) plush that’s well manufactured – but has a handmade feel to it. Rock on…or something.
