Let's Make Robots!

Not sure what to get.

I'm looking to get a robot kit, but I have no idea what to get. There's so many to chose from! I'd like to build one of two robots:

One like the start here robot from this site (which I already own :D) but with c or c++ as a language and is expandable, and maybe a quadroped or some inexpencive parts to make it quad.

 

Or a larger robot, similar to POLYRO, that can tell time, has arms( that can sense touch, even if it can't hold things) and move around. I was hoping to make it so it could understand voice too and react as well.
