Add to my Amazon Wish List: Brokk!!!

Add this bad boy to my Amazon Wish List-- the Brokk 330 Remote Controlled Demolition Robot.
Or, as I'll call him, "Brokk!!!", like the cry of a pterodactyl (in the movies, anyway). And, uh, let's imagine he moves on his own, instead of by RC.

A 5 ton robot with a range of dangerous tools on the end of its menacing neck. Just what my life is missing.
Examples of uses for the Brokk 330 are demolishing bank vaults, cleaning slag in blast furnaces, major building demolitions, cement kiln demolition and waste handling in the nuclear industry.

SCENE: Litvak is wearing a cape, boots, and a helmet with a built-in widow's peak, and is accompanied by Brokk!!! (maybe painted in glossy black).
Litvak: So, friend, what do you say we go demolish a bank vault?
Brokk!!!: Brokk!!! Brokk!!!

[Bank guards arrive at the scene]
Bank guards: Freeze!
Litvak: Step aside, officers. Brokk!!! is wary of strangers.
Brokk!!!: BROKK!!!

Ok, it gets better. Brokk!!! can have various things attached to its neck/arm thingy:
.

.
.
A hydraulic breaker,
.
.
.
.
.
a concrete crusher,

.

.
.
a grapple (think fanged maw),
.
.
.
.
...plus things like "drilling equipment, cutters, steel shears, etc."
I'm getting all giddy.
This is better than a rockwheel (see bottom of post).

...and then turn Brokk!!! loose on the shposes who broke into your apartment. (By the way - same day all your valuables & cookies were stolen someone used my debit card to charge $357 at Macy's in Culver City, CA. Can I borrow Brokk!!! when you're done?)
