I haven't seen the movie

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I wanna.

While this review was being put together, I commented to Josh in an e-mail that:

"...it (he?) strikes me as Disney's attempt at making their own cutsy version of R2-D2 in one of their films..."

I saw some of those 3" figures, and I'm thinking of getting just the one Wall-E figure where you can takes all his components apart, but he doesn't come with the garbage cube-or-whatever-else accessories.

This little robot is seriously cute, if you don't mind my saying so... Reminds me a little of the small 'assistant' CG robot that looks like binoculars with legs in MSWord.

Pixar's Finest

I saw this movie opening weekend and I have to agree with Josh.. if you can't enjoy this film then you've got problems. Laugh, Cry, Enjoy. Period. Even if you don't have kids of your own its a great film to see on the big screen. A lot of good Sci-Fi References and I'm shocked about how few Pixar cameos there were (noticable) except for John Ratzenberger who's done a voice for every Pixar film. I always half expected Wall E to pick up a Buzz Lightyear doll at one point but it never happened.

"...I always half expected Wall E to pick up a Buzz Lightyear doll at one point but it never happened."

...Probably because at that time in the future, Buzz Lightyear is a real person. :D

A different kind of electronic Wall-E

DisneyShopping.com shows that there is another electronic, motorized Wall-E which is different from this one. While the one that JoshB reviewed here is listed as "Motorized Interactive Talking Wall-E", there's a larger (and more expensive) one called "U-Command Wall-E".

The latter is $59.50, and is slightly larger (by, like, an inch on each dimension) has a wireless remote control, additional movement functions (the motorized binocular eyes tilt up & down), sound and [new] motion-tracking sensors, an expanded effects database, and motorized treads. Anyone here remember those RoboSapiens/RoboSaurus-or-whatever-they're-called that were all the rage a few years back? (I think TRU still carries them?) Same idea here.
It appears, however, that the U-Command can't interact with the Motorized Interactive Talking EVE- which the less complex & smaller one reviewed here can.

Video of U-Command Wall-E below...

(BTW, the woman on the left has the remote control for the robot.)

You can move them manually,

You can move them manually, they are not automated in that position.
