Hanson's robot looks fine, but modelling a robot on your girlfriend can be a hazardous business. If the relationship goes sour you could be left stranded with an automated version of your ex. What a nightmare.
This is a good article because you dont hear of people building to many robotic heads but this same article was in popular science about two weeks ago.

Whether the K-bot appears eerie or not can be a matter of presentation. If the head is tastefully mounted on a female robot body, it is less likely to appear eerie than if it is presented as a head on a box or a head on a stake. Also, if wires and motors are hidden from view, it is also less likely to appear eerie.
