LEGO Approves an Official WALL-E Set Created by a Pixar Animator
After calling your attention to the massive LEGO version of the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier from The Avengers, we have another cool building block set that will be coming your way eventually. The LEGO Ideas Review Board just met to take a look at the sets that received enough votes to be considered for production as an official LEGO set, and they've announced two new sets that we'll be able to buy. One of them is a "Doctor Who" set, which is cool, but since television isn't our primary focus, we're more excited about the LEGO set that will let us build our own WALL-E from the wonderful Pixar Animation film of the same name. Look!
Keep in mind that the final set will likely be a little different, since the LEGO Ideas creations that were approved for production always had some slight tweaks in the pieces used, but it will still look just like the trash compactor robot we all love. What's awesome about this particular fan-created set is that it was built by Angus MacLane, a Pixar animator and director who actually worked on WALL-E. The set was put up on the LEGO Ideas site back in 2013, so this process isn't a short one. But as LEGO fans and Pixar lovers, we're just excited to build our very own WALL-E. However, we're pretty bummed we won't get some of these sets:
How were the Ghostbusters firehouse and X-Men mansion not approved for production? Oh well.
