    Thought I remembered seeing one a while back, but couldn't find it. If I screwed up, please merge the thread.

    Saw these at TRU today, was kinda surprised by how cool some of them were. I picked up a small (deluxe-ish) "U-Repair" WALL-E for $10. Really cool! The treads are fully functional and features rubber belts, with an alternate set that must make sense in the movie. The treads have nice teethe inside that make the three road-wheel rotate. It works really well and looks great.

    The most surprising of all (to me at least) was the $20 transforming WALL-E. He transforming down into a cube, I guess to recharge. Pretty cool.

    I took some pics of the U-Repair WALL-E.

    Cool. He kinda looks like R.O.B., though.

    I was tempted by the $6-$7 price point ones.. but I might have to splurge on this guy. Looks like fun!

    Wow, thanks for the pics. Haven't seen him yet, but was hoping these would be great. And it looks like they are - YOINK!

    I look forward to getting a 3-inch Wall-E for my 3-year-old to take with him to the movie.

    I'm not sure this will replace "Cars" as his favorite Disney flick (and toy tie-in) but it should be fun for us both.

    I also have the "U-Repair" one and it's pretty cool. I like that he still opens up. It's a nice little place to store his extra treads. I definitely cannot wait to see this movie.

    After seeing that extended clip of Wall-E and Eve, these toys definitely look awesome. I just don't wanna end up having a dozen different Wall-Es. I can totally see that happening.
    I gotta put some thought into it and pick one definitive bot of each character.

    & GogDog FTW!

    I shouldn't. I shouldn't! Be getting into any more toy lines that I don't have storage space for.

    But these little robots are so friggin' cute!

    The cinema I went to see Iron Man at had a life-size model of Wall-E.
    It was adorable.

    I may have to grab one of the deluxe figures from this movie.
    The Lil' guy looks like an SD Johnny 5.

    When the [​IMG] expresses an interest in toys for her, I buy thems (Harry Potter, Breakfast at Tiffany's Barbie, etc.). Diverts attention from my pile of stuff, y'see. I bought her the basic $7ish figs of Wall-E and Eve. I/we/she may get some of the other little bots in the same scale.
