The Arduino Uno has the most shields made for it and has the most support. It is the generally the best for beginners.

You should look at www.instructables.com at some of the robot projects and find one that interests you.

In the mean time, get an Uno and perhaps a beginners kit of LEDs, resistors, and pots so, that you can get your feet wet.

Batteries and a battery charger.
