Post 143: A LEGO WALL-E MIGHT BE COMING!!!

HI EVERBODY! AND NO, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE KEYBOARD, IT IS JUST FROM PURE EXCITMENT OF THIS PROJECT! A LEGO WALL-E MADE BY ANIMATOR/DIRECTOR ("BURN-E","SMALL FRY","TOY STORY OF TERROR")/LEGO FAN ANGUS MACLANE! HERE'S THE NEWS:

"LEGO builder Angus MacLane keeps busy. He works as an animator for Pixar and seems to have multiple LEGO projects in progress at any given time. MacLane came up with the amusing LEGO Superhero Couch Potato series we featured in June, and he’s recently received support on LEGO Ideas for a model of Wall-E from the film of the same name. MacLane worked as lead animator on the movie and spent three years developing the brick form of the sweet robot.
14507426518_6acb4deace_k14690948831_723f0f7a63_kMacLane told The Brothers Brick he started on Wall-E about the same time as the computer model of the character was being built. Since the color scheme for the film wasn’t finalized, MacClane constructed the first version of Wall-E with light gray bricks. He’s made upgrades over the years including using screen accurate colors and adding better tread. MacLane doesn’t list the piece number or height of the finished project, but it looks close to life-sized. I think it would be a fun set to build, especially if you could figure out how motorize the tread.

A LEGO Review Board with designers and product managers will look at the idea and build concept models. The whole process can take several months, but there is a possibility that LEGO Wall-E could end up on store shelves." -Nerdist
