Update: It looks like Amazon pulled the listing last night. Hopefully it will still honor any pre-orders it accepted last night.
Back in June it was leaked that Lego was officially putting Angus MacLane’s WALL•E Lego Ideas model into production. And if you’ve been patiently waiting for the day when you can finally buy it, that day is now. But getting it delivered? That’s still a few weeks away.
Although Lego has yet to officially reveal the set, if you head on over to Amazon you can fork out $60 for a Lego WALL•E pre-order. The set won’t start shipping until September 1, though, so a little more patience is required. To tide you over until then, the product description on Amazon looks like it reveals a few more details:
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.
Back in June it seemed like we wouldn’t be able to get our hands on this set until December, so let’s hope that Amazon is right and we’re actually just a few weeks away from its release. [Amazon via The Brick Fan]
