A little reminder of what is Poppy Ergo Jr
It works with Dynamixel XL-320 motors, and a Raspberry Pi for control.
It comes with three tools (end effector):

a lampshade
a grasper (the tool used to make the T-Rex jaw)
a pen holder
You can control the robot with Python (from a Jupyter notebook interface) or via Snap, a visual programming language similar to Scratch.

You can buy all pieces by yourself (BOM link), or buy robot without printed parts on one of Poppy distributors.

Assembly Guide
A full assembly guide is available on the online Poppy documentation.
