Astronomy Look-alikes, No. 12

I’m struck by the remarkable similarity between the depiction below of WALL-E, an absurdly comical fantasy robot that exists only in the realm of  Science Fiction, and the European Space Agency’s Exomars Rover. I wonder if by any chance they might be related?

P.S. Thanks to Rigsby Matt Griffin for this one!
