I made this for my bf's birthday and just got around to posting it. I wanted it to have some sort of practical use as well so I made the body a box. Its all made out of cardboard and various recycled things found around the house. Let me know what you think!

That looks just like him! Great job, I'm sure your bf will LOVE it! I'm not a huge fan of the movie, but I know some people who would kill for that!

That's amazing!
When I saw the first picture, I honestly couldn't figure out if that was the Wall-E you made or if that was a scene from the movie that I didn't remember, hahaha.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

This is just fabulous. Are you sure you don't work as a stage hand or model maker for Jim Henson or Pixar or something. This looks as good if not better than what you might find in a store. What a lucky person was recipient of this object. I would wist it, but I am sure no one could make me something of this caliber! Awesome!

That is an awesome likeness to Wall-e he would love it. Actually the hidden box usefulness is one of the best features. Not only a great gift but something you could use and its so cute you can display it anywhere. Further more if your that good at turning recycled items into something like that you're looking at a BUISNESS-one for the mothers and gift seekers-two for those who wish to go green and three because it's recyclable you can sell for cheep and make a big profit. Think about it (use all the characters from diff movies but don't forget the rights from the companies to use there charaters).

 I didn't look at the title or description until i was done trying to figure out why you were posting pictures of a Wall-E toy. I had decided maybe he started off clean and you added the dirtiness, I am so amazed to find that he's made from cardboard. you=talented.
