What's Up With WALL-E?

Even though the WALL-E movie won't hit the screens here until December (yes, it sometimes takes that long), we've been very impressed by all the trailers, promotional material, reviews, and feedback from our readers. So much so, that we have even considered putting in a pre-order for one of the neat "Ultimate WALL-E Remote Control Robots". Playing with it, and hacking it, should keep us happily entertained for countless hours, days, or perhaps even months.

But, at the very end of the Ultimate WALL-E product page we found this puzzling warning:

"WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, or birth defects or other reproductive harm. "

Now we're having second thoughts... Any of our readers know what's up with that warning, and whether we, and others, should be concerned or not?

  1. All petoleum based products must carry that.

    So….. and time there’s grease in a gearset, guess what?

  2. Probably lead solder or paint.

    Most products that come from California say that. Most anything in California says that. I think it’s a liability thing.

  4. Actually, I read the exact same thing written on the back of my Pentium D’s box so I think that warning is kinda normal.

  5. Looks like the going price is now $259. Available in 10 weeks or so.

    My only complaint so far (from what I’ve seen) is the remote is Infrared. That can lead to line-of-sight issues.

    But still… on my wish list!

    I got one off of eBay for $124.00 Used but in mint condition. It’s a blast and I can’t wait until I upgrade the rechargeable battery pack to 2400 mah. It’s my Christmas present to me! I plan to light it up with LED lights. If it has any room to add a little 4-12 ch Receiver, I might add some fun things to it. I got to make a Roach pet for it for sure! I got an idea for a RC roach to follow Wall-E around. It will be a scream!
