The Domestobot.

The Domestobot is a robotic servant mass-produced in the 1980s and still widely referenced in the 1990s in the GTA III Era. In the GTA IV Era, they make a comeback in the late 2000s. It appears to be based on the Tomy Omnibot 2000, though the head is more similar to that of the Nintendo R.O.B.

Vic Vance recieved word of the delivery before Lance and decided to take out the bonds using the Domestobot himself. The Domestobot can be driven and is obtainable through cheat devices and third party programs.
