But a / Film reader asserts that Burn-E can be spotted in some Wall-E footage previously released by Disney Pixar.
According to him Burn-E would be a welding robot who gets stuck out of the spaceship Axiom while working outside when a door suddenly locks. The robot then bangs his fist against the door out of frustration.
I think that’s indeed Burn-E: quite a good name for a welder! Besides if you check the robot clip by BuyNLarge, the welding robot is ostensibly missing. And the names of the robots do match their functions:
So I’m even quite sure they got it right and the welder robot in the Wall-E feature film is the mysterious Burn-E.
Update as of November 7, 2008:
The DVD of Wall-E will be released quite soon and the Pixar Blog had an early look at it.
It is now confirmed that Burn-E is indeed the welder robot from the video scene above
Here below some new pictures of Burn-E, the star of this new Pixar short film:
The Burn-E movie is said to run 7:35 long: more than enough for Pixar to amaze us once more time!
Update as of November 12, 2008:

Burn-E is worth watching! I still prefer wall-E though: Burn-E is cute but not as much as Wall-E!
