Ultimate Wall-E Robot Being Brought to Life by Disney, Thinkway Toys

Disney are teaming up with Thinkway Toys to make Wall-E into a real
robot. The toy, titled Ultimate Wall-E, will retail at a stonking
$189.99 and will ship this summer. The robot will feature 10 motors for
movement, remote control, programming mode and obstacle, sound and
touch detection sensors for basic environment interactions.

The collaboration between the kid's entertainment company and Thinkway Toys and others,
including WowWee, will further result in a whole host of Disney
characters being reincarnated as a scary, robotic army. Next on the
list is Tinkerbell, and this time she really flies. The new toys will
be showcased at the upcoming Bay Area Maker Faire.
