What do you get for the firebreathing robot overlord who has everything?
No, really, I need to know.
A playmate. Someone to challenge you.
Me? I'm a cat wearing a top hat and monocle. I just need more books and caviar. Oh and to appease the robot. Clearly we need a giant female robot that breathes ice and does anal.
High-pressure oxygen cylinders and powdered magnesium?
The playground at the park when I was quite young had a similar structure in the form of a rocket ship. At the time I thought it was totally cool, but now I see I was deluded. Robot FTW.
Woah! a park playground we went to occasionally as a elementary school kids had this (exact model?) robot with the slide; I remember you could go up in his head too. As a kid I remember this thing being HUGE, though.
I love how it looks like a robotic prison with slides.
One of the parks when I was little had one of these. I was convinced I'd get my head stuck between the bars and get trapped, but I liked how high off the ground you could get in the head.
Oh nice going. Now it's not going to be a surprise.
Haha! I was there for that. We got to Roppongi and wandered around a bit, and when I saw the robot standing there, my first comment to my friends was "I wonder when that thing starts to spit fire and stomp on all the kids here?" Less than five minutes later it was spitting fire. Alas, there was no child stomping to be had. I should've demanded my money back.

You're not hard to shop for. You're just expensive to shop for.
As I said over on Gawker:
Casper, the fire-breathing ghost,The fiery-est ghost you know.Though grown-ups mightLook at him with fright,The children all love him so.
He always says hello (Hello),and he's really glad to meetcha.Wherever he may go,He blows up every living creature.
Grown-ups don't understandWhy children love him the most.But kids all knowThat he loves them so,Casper the fire-breathing ghost.
I always wondered what the body of that baby-head-made-of-metal-bees in Matrix 3 would look like.
As long as it's not hooked up to this mad science brain-machine interface chair we'll be fine, right?
...but this seemed in keeping with your aesthetic:
