Do you still remember RoboCop, the half-man half-machine (cyborg) law enforcer with superhuman strength? If you are born in the 80’s he might have been your childhood hero that is in the ranks of Superman, Batman and Spiderman. For the unfamiliar younger generation out there, RoboCop is a 1987 American science fiction film set in futuristic Detroit, Michigan. The story revolves around a veteran police officer named Alex Murphy that was murdered on his first patrol on the said city. OCP (Omni Consumer Products) or OmniCorp then takes his body to be used in the cyborg program called ‘RoboCop’ making him the first RoboCop.
According to IMDb the upcoming RoboCop 2013 should be expected to launch on August 9 2013. This time Joel Kinnaman (Easy Money, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo etc.) is set to play the role of Alex Murphy. His antagonist, Dick Jones to be played by Hugh Laurie (Mr. Bunny’s voice in the movie Hop) is the evil CEO of OmniCorp that will send an ED-209 war robot to destroy RoboCop.
In the new movie ‘RoboCop 2013’, the same ED-209 was used but this time the robot is redesigned perhaps equipped with powerful weapons and armor that can withstand against tanks. Also there’s a new addition to the gang that is set to protect a city, an unmanned aerial vehicle XT-908 that is similar to a drone in size but looks like a stealth fighter. It can be deployed within the city to spy on the streets looking for criminals using its face recognition technology. You can check these out on the real OmniCorp website – www.omnicorp.com, no I’m just kidding. The site exists only for the purpose of promoting the movie.
Part Man. Part Machine. All Cop. From the 1987 classic, RoboCop, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to introduce Hot Toys’ RoboCop MMS Diecast Sixth Scale Figure, featuring RoboCop’s mechanical chair from the Metro West maintenance chamber.
