@Rhaven Blaack & @Cybergrinder : Thank you! It was big fun to pose the model. The articulation really paid off. :)

@zathros : The weather was so bad these days that I almost gave up taking some beauty pics outside. It was raining day by day by day, the air and the ground were still moist. So I had to act quick when suddenly the clouds dissolved. I took the model out during a lunch break and went to my old school which was demolished this summer. We have a lot of construction sites here at the moment (you could say that the whole town is a construction site ;) ), so if that hadn't worked I would have chosen another place. To protect it from the moisture in the ground I put some bubble wrap under its tracks. Later when I was looking at the pictures I was about to edit them out but then I remembered the scene in which Wall-E and EVE were crushing the bubble wrap in the movie, so I left it; that's how it became a little in-joke in the final picture set. The model is exactly 30 cm tall but it looks much larger in hand. I was surprised at how big it looked when it was finished. :)

@blake7 : Julius' version is much smaller and simpler. But it has a number of movable joints built in; you can move the head and the arms which is more than Elso's model provides. I have printed a black and white copy of Julius' Wall-E on regular paper to test the abilities of my printer and to see how big this one would become. I haven't assembled it yet but it does look awesome, especially for that scale. I was thinking of making an enlarged B'n'L storage box for the big one but when I saw how big it turned out I thought it was too much of a hassle to make it because you had to take out the box first in order to get to the model. So it ended up with the model wrapped up in a white trash bag which was the most fitting way. ;)

Spazbook says this link is dead. Do you have the files?
Whoopsie! My speed is down at the moment but it's being restored in two days. I'll check if there is another source then. Of course I do have the file.

I was looking for an alternative download. It seems that there is none. I suggest to PM Elso directly and ask him to re-upload the file. BTW, it is a huge one (119 MB)!

I was looking for WallE to and contacted Elso.
If you go to the link below and search for WallEasy by ElsoCraft.
You will find the WallEasy 2014 build.

I contacted him somewhere on his site, too, but I don't remember where.

Good to know that he model is still out there but the link leads to that awful 4shared registration form. I really wish he would choose another service which does not require personal info. And the bypass via 4shared.info is no longer available. :(
