We’re not entirely sure why it took LEGO this long to make a set for one of the most popular movie robots of all time. At this point, we don’t care either. We just want our own LEGO Wall-E.
Originally conceived by Pixar animator Angus MacLane, it’s a detailed, albeit smaller, recreation of the robot tasked with cleaning up an abandoned future version of Earth, one piece of garbage at a time. Collaborating with LEGO’s Steen Sig Andersen and the film’s director Andrew Stanton, the official version gets tweaked into a highly-articulate automaton, complete with multiple moving parts that allow it to do a whole load of things.
The LEGO Wall-E has rolling tracks that allow it to roam like the movie robot, with a posable neck and adjustable head for looking around, hoping to catch a glimpse of someone… anyone… other than itself in the deserted wasteland. Movable hands and gripping claws allow it to grab hold of objects, with a belly compartment that opens and closes, so you can have it tidy up your desk like a workplace version of the original. Seriously, this thing is just as adorable as the Wall-E we saw in the movie, although you’ll probably need to make an EVE if you don’t want it to wind up too lonely.
