Like most film fans, Mike Senna relishes having fragments of his favorite movies around him. Most people collect those memories in the form of posters or other memorabilia, but Senna actually reconstructs characters from his screen favorites.
The Orange County computer programmer built a life-size, working R2-D2 from Star Wars, which he used to travel to different hospitals with and cheer up sick children. Eventually, though, he wanted to make something a little more emotional than the dome-shaped droid that beeps. Senna started working on re-creating a life-size WALL-E robot from the 2008 film about a little trash compactor that falls in love and roams a trash-covered planet.
Without a blueprint, using his own money and putting in an average of 25 hours per week, Senna constructed an amazingly detailed Wall-E that children everywhere adore. Watch Wall-E in action below, and try not to get teary eyed.
