Thinkway Toys 2008 Transforming WALL∙E robot figure

With mankind having abandoned the planet, WALL•E (short for Waste Allocation Lifter Earth-Class) has spent hundreds of lonely years doing what he was built for - tidying up the Earth! Then he discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE and follows her on an amazing journey across the universe.

The last robot on Earth, WALL•E transforms himself into a cube when he goes to sleep each night, then turns himself back into a robot every morning. This is Thinkway Toys Disney Pixar Transforming WALL•E robot toy figure (released in 2008) and my second Wall•E in as many months. See the first WALL•E robot toy I posted at the beginning of the year HERE, made by Kaiyodo Revoltech. This Thinkway WALL•E can transform from cube to fully functioning WALL•E robot in three simple steps, as easy as 1-2-3.

I only bought this transforming WALL•E because it was going for a very low price. The price on Amazon: US$74.99 (SGD97.04). Price I paid: SGD20.00 (USD15.45). The other reason is the size. After reviewing the Kaiyodo Revoltech Pixar Figure Collection 002 - WALL•E robot figure (see my post HERE), I felt that the Revoltech WALL•E was just too small although it has amazing details for something that small. This Thinkway Toys Transforming WALL•E robot toy figure measures about 10cm x 13cm x 20cm (Box Package Dimensions: Approximately 22cm x 15cm x 25cm) and I quite like this size. Value for money haha

Here's the Thinkway Toys Disney Pixar Transforming WALL•E robot toy figure in its cube mode. It can transform from a cube to fully pose-able robot, just like in the movie!

Out pops the head (eyes) at the press of a button

Another button releases WALL•E's arms which can strike some action poses

A third button releases his wheels / tracks. It's just as easy to transform WALL•E back into a box / cube.

Now WALL•E is ready to get to work

Transform Thinkway Toys Disney Pixar's Transforming WALL•E from a cube to fully poseable robot in seconds with press 'n' pop action. Press separate buttons to release wheels, arms and head during transformation. It also has free wheeling action. Reverse the process to transform robot back to cube form.
