Mr. Personality sadly came off the scene as quickly as he came on after he was announced at CES 2008.  I've seen quite a few people on our forums here who were quite passionate about this new jokester robot, but then disappointed, as no additional "official" personalities were released.  In addition, it didn't seem that there was any "official...
