It all started in 2008 when I purchased the #8275 Bulldozer Technic set, and at the same time saw a poster for an upcoming Disney/Pixar movie called WALL-E®. It just called me I had to make this thing out of LEGO using the new large thread and parts from my new set. WALL-E NXT was born. The video I posted on YouTube went (almost) viral and even caught the attention of the Mindstorms team. I guess you could say I was at the right place at the right time! LEGO contacted me and asked if my robot could be part of the exhibit for the 10th Anniversary of LEGO Mindstorms. I will never forget that day! WALL-E2 was simply a remake of WALL-E1 now living in Billund.
Here is a recently posted video of me explaining wall-e to some friends at a party back in 2008 (yes i brought wall-e to a bbq!)
