A robot that builds robots. bust out a reprap. They're kind of pricey as a project but useful to use afterward.

hmm sounds intriguing
Even a basic CNC machine that can carve out 3D designs would be very impressive.

What experience do you have, that is, what would be best suited to your skill set: circuit design, PCB layout, robotics from scratch, modifying something to be a robot, theory, proof of concepts, programming chips, etc.?

amateur soldering skills, mad hot glue gun skills ,and i dont know dust when it comes to programming
then I would go for the arduino it may look complex but it is not and there are many people that will be glad to help you.

Sounds like an Arduino is the way to go. Pick up a barebones Ardunio kit, solder it up, and program away. You can make just about anything with it. Rip some stepper motors our of an old scanner, and make a robot from it...just about anything!
