A few months after it was accidentally revealed by a UK toy store, and a few days after Amazon started taking pre-orders for it, Lego has officially revealed Pixar animator Angus MacLane’s Lego Ideas WALL•E set—including a brand new photo of the little robot.
Available starting September 1 for $50, the 677-piece set includes a booklet about MacLane and the Pixar film. And instead of recycling the box it comes in, you can crumple it up into a ball of garbage, toss it on the floor, and give your WALL•E more purpose than just a decoration for your home office. Here’s the official description:
Build, display and role play with WALL•E! Construct the LEGO® Ideas version of WALL•E with posable neck, adjustable head and arms, gripping hands, opening trunk and rolling tracks.
Build a beautifully detailed LEGO® version of WALL•E—the last robot left on Earth! Created by Angus MacLane, an animator and director at Pixar Animation Studios, and selected by LEGO Ideas members, the development of this model began alongside the making of the lovable animated character for the classic Pixar feature film. It has taken almost a decade to perfect the LEGO version, which incorporates many authentic WALL•E characteristics, including a posable neck, adjustable head, arms that move up and down and side to side, plus gripping hands and rolling tracks. With a trunk that opens and closes, you can tidy up the planet one pile of garbage at a time! This set also includes a booklet about the designer and the animated Pixar movie.
