Earlier this year, it was announced that Pixarian and LEGO fanatic Angus MacLane’s WALL-E model, submitted to the LEGO Ideas program, had reached community support and been reviewed and accepted by LEGO to produce the model for mass market. Earlier today, UK retailer Smyths began listing the LEGO model along with some box images and images of the model itself.
Earlier today, LEGO Ideas announced that the LEGO version of Wall-E that was submitted to its community for consideration to become an actual LEGO production set has been approved. After reaching 10,000 community supporters back in July of 2014 — which in it of itself is no small feat — the proposed model was then passed on to the review board to consider the feasibility of the project, which of course would include Disney’s own blessings. The announcement today, which also included a ‘Dr. Who’ themed set among several other applicants that didn’t make the cut, confirmed that LEGO Wall-E will soon find its way on the shelf, although LEGO says it’s too soon to share any further details about the project. Hopefully the model will be on display at LEGO’s collector’s event at New York Toy Fair which takes place later this month as they did with the Ghostbusters Ecto-One set, another LEGO Ideas graduate.
Pixarian Angus MacLane, who most recently directed the ‘Toy Story of TERROR!’ special and ‘Small Fry’ short is also a well-known LEGO enthusiast. His LEGO CubeDude collection has even been produced by the LEGO company for limited edition sets as well.
Now MacLane has taken to CUUSOO to promote two of his projects: a Wall-E figure as seen here as well as the LEGO bunny from ‘Toy Story of TERROR!’ (billed as screen-accurate), complete with the ability to ‘transform’ into a staircase.
Nearly a month after we first announced the upcoming arrival of ‘Pixar Shorts Voume 2‘ on Blu-ray (available to own November 13, 2012), Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has officially confirmed the release and date along with a list of all of the shorts included in the second collection of short films from Pixar Animation Studios as well as student films from John Lasseter, Pete Docter and Andrew Stanton.
The included shorts are as follows:
- BURN-E — BURN-E is a dedicated, hard working robot that finds himself locked out of his ship and quickly learns that completing a simple task can often be a difficult endeavor. Based on characters from WALL-E. (Directed by: Angus MacLane)
