Mike Senna, well known from the remote-control R2-D2 replica he built in 2003, is now building a working WALL-E replica from the Pixar film. Completely scratch built, as there are no hobbiest parts available.
Mike Senna & Mike McMaster exhibited their WALL-E replicas in progress at the Maker Faire Bay Area 2011. Maker Faire is an event hosted by Make Magazine that celebrates do-it-yourselfers in the fields of arts, crafts, engineering & science. The event began in 2006 in San Francisco with 100 exhibiters ("Makers"), and has grown to numerous events across the country. This year's event attracted more than 90,000 visitors to the San Mateo County Fairgrounds. It celebrates grassroots American innovation.
