Must Have: NXT Wall-E Close to Original

This Wall-E was created out of a LEGO Mindstorms NXT and is fully self-controlled. It can move forward, backwards and turn. He makes noises, holds objects, moves his head and is sound aware. And, like the original, this bugger can fold himself into a box. The project took 250 hrs. to build over the space of a year and has 5 RCX motors and 3 Levers.
