Generally speaking, yes. But in this case, the infrared sensor just fits in better with his appearance. The standard ultrasonic sensors always have a fixed layout that doesn't work with the shape of his eyes. That's why I chose the infrared sensor for this project.
I actually got mine off Trademe (www.trademe.co.nz). That's New Zealand's local version of Ebay, and very safe because New Zealand is such a small country. I don't know where you are located, but maybe you could try Ebay or something similar, and then arrange to meet up in a public place to exchange the Wall-E and the money? That way the seller can't take your money and run. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if there are specialised Lego trade forums or the like, which may be a bit more trustworthy. In any case, make sure to check the neck joint; in older versions it used to be very wobbly and the head was flipping over all the time. Lego has issued a fix with a more stable neck joint ("Dark Stone Grey Beam 2 with Ball 10.2"), so make sure the model you're getting has that one.
I hope this helps!
Thank you so much for your support everyone, I am overwhelmed by the positive and encouraging response! :-)
