For $10, this Wild Planet LiteFormz Transforming Flashlight—that goes from regular torch, to walking funny man, to menacing scorpion—seems like a total bargain. Too bad it's not an actual robot. [Buzzillions via Boing Boing Gadgets]
One of the problems with flashlights is never being able to find one in the dark of a power outtage, and this one, being in toy form, this one will disappear faster, thanks to kids and toy lovers. I have a rechargable that I leave plugged in all the time, and it has a little LED charge indicator that I use to find it in the dark when the lights go out.
