Yeah, RTV and resin would be a better idea, especially considering how much metal a big ol' robot would need.  That could be reduced a bit by making it hollow though.

Maid Madian looks pretty cool/cute.  Reminiscent of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.

Interesting find.  For reference, the smallest block they list there (30cm x 30 cm x 10cm) weighs ~850grams.

That surface doesn't look very reasuring though, with al those surface bubble holes.  If it has no bubbles inside it could work very well.

Anyone know how hot a normal mold gets?  This stuff is fine to 100C.

Yeah, you couldn't vulcanse it but RTV is fine.
If it's the same "foam" that I've seen before then the inside is bubble free. Normally used fir prototyping in industry but I saw a good reptile model carved from it. Anyone (uk) that wants to try it I'd be willing to send on a portion on the block for a split of the cost.
