Try: www.robotcombat.com - they have a bunch of components for 1-lb and up bots. Their focus is combat, but many of the components could be used in more peaceable applications.<p>tallyjay

I made a robot for my college last year. It did well.. and to answer your question.. I would say to check out your local hobbie stores for the servos.. Digikey is great for parts. My site shows my robot and steps I used.<p>www.sambuchi.net
click > Projects > Robot-IEEE<p>Its great for learning and the robot history shows the time line of the robot with pictures.
