Wall-E Toy Robot On Display at Maker Faire This Weekend
Wall-E is a new movie from Disney and Pixar coming to a theater near you on June 27th.
The premise of the movie is that planet Earth has become so overrun with garbage from all the things people buy, that its inhabitants finally had to flee. They took off on a starship, leaving behind a bunch of robots designed to clean it all up. Once the robots had finished their work, the people would return.
Eventually all the robots stopped working, except one. The only one remaining was WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class)
After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL•E The Robot Discovers What He Was Meant For!

In order to promote the film Disney has teamed up with Pixar Animation Studios, Thinkway Toys and WowWee and plans to launch a new line of plastic WALL-E robots sometime this summer. Ultimate WALL-E will list for $190 and feature 10 motors, a remote control, and sensors to avoid obstacles and respond to touch. The Ultimate Wall-E will make it debut this weekend at Maker Faire in Bay Area, Calfiornia, at San Mateo Fairgrounds.
Maker Faire is a two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for creative, resourceful people of all ages and backgrounds who like to tinker and love to make things.
