Transforming Lego Wall-E

Recommended Posts

Hi all -

I'm a big fan of the 21303 Wall-E set, but I always wished that he'd be able to fold into a box like he did in the film. 

After a lot of tinkering, now he can! 

Peeking out:

Fully unfolded:

Almost all of the range of poses in the film are now possible, including poses in-between transformation. Here are a few examples:

I also made a gif of the transformation (stop-motion): https://i.imgur.com/UqMKq6F.gifv

And there's also a gif of the improved range of arm motion, that almost matches the range in the movie: https://i.imgur.com/KAyRTr7.gifv

If you'd like to see more pictures, there are some at https://imgur.com/gallery/S6Dtgru

If you'd like tips on how to build this guy, I've compiled an album at https://imgur.com/gallery/Jb94JSw

Thanks for looking!

This is absolutely stunning, I love it!! :wub:

I'm going to have to study this and see if I can make mine do the same.

Thanks folks! @NathanR, let me know if you’d like any other pictures - I plan to keep him assembled pretty much indefinitely :)

Have you thought about doing instructions by reverse engineering it in photos? Basically you take a photo each time you take a part off that way you can reassemble it later.

If I ever decide to take him apart, I’ll definitely do that - but I’m not sure if that’ll ever happen, besides a few future improvements. The album at https://imgur.com/gallery/Jb94JSw is kind of like that, but could definitely be more in-depth.
