"In 2006, we have launched our first RoboCop which is very much liked by our fans. Over these years, we have accumulated some experience in developing mechanically-related figures such as the Iron Man series. As we have heard from fans that they are still longing for the Robocop series, here we are happy to announce that we have put our efforts again in the Robocop series, this time bringing to fans with the RoboCop with our most updated technology, as well as the 1/6th scale Cain collectible from the second episode. This year is going to be a fruitful year for all of us! Please stay tuned for more updates ahead!"

Well i am definitely happy about this. Missed out on the first robocop. I just hope they do the same with the terminator figures i.e. the endoskeletons and police shootout T800. Now I dont have to pay 500 plus for robocop on ebay.

Well so far for me:

DX Joker 1989
DX Batman 1989
DX Joker 2.0 from TDK
The Dark Knight Rises (Batman, Bane and Catwoman)
1/4th scale Classic Predator, Dutch, Elder Predator and City Hunter Predator
Metal Gear Solid figures
Robocop

OMG I AM SOOO FREAKIN excited for ROBOCAIN!! I JUST bought the robocop and ed 209 hot toys for USD$130 and USD$180 each. Robocain would sit perfectly with the pieces I just bought!

Unfortunately both robocop and ed209 were missing the inner foams ((that comes with the box) but they still come with the box.

It was a local pickup so didn't have to pay for shipping. My friend helped me pick it up so he was unaware of the missing foam, do you guys think I got ripped off? (I'm not really aware of the going rate for both pieces since I've been having problems logging in to ebay recently ) Both pieces are in great condition but really bummed that I didn't get the foams. Hope I didn't overpay? What do you guys think? :(

Finally! Cain! This one will be epic. A lot of Robo-fans-collectors was dreaming about HT Cain for years.
Will be pricey of course (I'm thinking about smth Iron Monger range pricey or maybe a little bit more, since it's so complex) but it will worth every penny.
Don't even need the prototype pics. Just open pre-order already! :lol:drool

MrAwesome
01-04-2012, 01:42 AM
I can't believe it. It's gonna be so awesome. I can expect them to make Murphy's face super accurate and less toy-like than the previous version. I'm going to assume robo-cain will be around the same price as iron-monger.

This would not be a reissue but a whole new figure.

And it would be silly to release Cain and make people track down a 4 year old Robocop figure to go with it.

Finally all the wishing to the "BLUE FAIRY" my wish has come true! ROBOCAIN!!!!!!!! Luckily it is tax time and i can just put my return in the bank because it is going to cost an arm and a leg for this. If you remember the size difference between Murphy and Cain, it will be about the same size difference between Iron Man and Monger. Now the only thing that they can really surprize us with is................. wait for it........................... 1/6........... ALIEN......... QUEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never really liked Robocop 2 (or 3 for that matter)
Both sequels sucked IMO.

Just Robocop for me. While the Cain figure will probably be very impressive, I have absolutely no interest in owning one.

Removable helmet a must. Peter Weller likeness a must. I guess changeable chest armour for battle damage would be cool. Plus I'd like to see his bicep diagnostic screen pop out but I won't throw a fit if they don't include this .

I've been expecting HT to announce this ever since there been nailing there Iron Man figures. This shouldn't be anything less than awesome. I was planning on just collecting Preds but I think I can make room for a Robocop & Cain :) I've got a feeling HT will have a few more Robocops coming out after they release this to.

We knew Robocop update was coming with some news awhile back that HT had picked up the Robocop license again, but Cain is a pleasant surprise. I'll pass on what will no doubt be a $450+ figure, but still cool.

I have zero interest in Cain... the movie sucked ass and the aside from looking cool; Cain was a dud.

Now, an updated Robocop is very intriguing and if we get a Boddicker I'll be stoked :rock

EDIT: And slightly annoyed they are making another Robocop so long after the originals sold out... but at this point I've come to expect HT will re-release/update any and all figures.

I'm of two minds, I do love the upgraded quality... but as someone who generally already owns these figures I'm left with deciding between selling the figures I have to upgrade, or having 2 of something.

Generally I'll sell off the old, but kind of a kick in the nuts when last week I could have sold Robo for $450, and now I get to watch the price steadily drop.

No need to whine about once you left a pile of money for the figure which wasn't worth it and now it's goin to be rereleased with 10x better Q and sells for the normal price. There was a tons of prerequisites for all this reissues and the only thing you had to do is wait patiently.

To clarify what I'm looking at here, the Robocop in plain view is their original release, the Caine is a paper cutout to show scale, and the blurred out green Robocop with the "targeting" sights on it is likely the new figure? Correct?

That's my guess :huh

Really hope the new Robocop has an accurate/full reveal sculpt with the detail on the back of his head.

And even better if its a DX style we could get swappable pieces to go from a clean and new look to final battle :rock

This definitely means that Cain is in development and we have been waiting a long time for this. The next best thing that we had to work with was the Kotobukiya One Coin PVC Trading Figure. As good as that looked, it was only 3" tall. I am ridiculously happy about this.

To avoid this, you've gotta actively try to anticipate what HT is gonna do next before the official announcement is made. We get hints. Last year's news that HT, along with several other companies had acquired this license; seeing the new Predator body for an exclusive con release along with vague suggestions that the "Classic" version was coming; suggestions on Facebook that a new Mark I was in the pipeline, chalked up by some to a typo; knowledge that HT has a Nolan Batman fetish and that Batman wears the DX-02 suit in the new film, etc.

Yeah, I do play that game... but to be honest even though I know I'll be upgrading when the new Robocop hits; he is one of the few figures I would not want to be w/o until the new one comes. Robocop and ED-209 have been proudly on display for a long time and I just can't imagine a room w/o them... even for a few months :lol

id hazard a guess and say ht will go all out on the robocain figure and even add in a working display monitor in cains head just like in the movie. The technology is available now led wise to do this which wasn't a few years back when they originally released the robocop figures.

I agree, there's definitely something of sentimental value to the older HT releases. I've held off on breaking down my BD T-800 more for the kitsch/sentimental value than dollar bills. And even if HT releases a Police Shootout T-800, I don't think I'd sell the 1st one based on that. Same with Robocop.

And I really can't get irked by any of the HT re-releases, it's an industry rule that you keep "upgrading" major favorite characters as time rolls and on and the technology (or industry as a whole) evolves. Learned this when I was 7 with Snake-Eyes when he came with Timber. :lecture

And I really can't get irked by any of the HT re-releases, it's an industry rule that you keep "upgrading" major favorite characters as time rolls and on and the technology (or industry as a whole) evolves. Learned this when I was 7 with Snake-Eyes when he came with Timber. :lecture

Its true, at least it should be an upgrade and while I've never been bothered by the Robocop figure my mind reals when thinking of the upgrades they could do to him.

Of the characters that can use googly eyes, I don't rank Robocop in the top 100, considering in part that 99.99% of people are gonna display him with the helmet on anyway. Having said that, I wouldn't have included Luke Skywalker in that list, either.

Since Hot Toys started out smaller in size and liscenses (and had pretty pricy figures even at that time), no one expected them to go on a re-releases spree like any normal toy company that produces more "accessible" toys. Now they are bigger, and have a larger collectors base...I guess it was coming. Maybe this will help drive down the after market price, a little.

I don't buy Hot Toys thinking they will ever go up in value, I buy them because I like them, sell them to make space, then buy them again because I like them. I don't care if Hot Toys re-releases all of their product with upgraded bodies and sculpts. IMHO

I personally love the original HT Robocop and think it was ahead of its time as far as 1/6 for 2006.

I just sold my ED-209 and would buy it again if they make it better as well as a Cain.

If they make their Robocop even better, it's going next to the 2006 one.

I haven't been the biggest fan of Iron Man re-issues lately,and im not a fan of Robocop either but it's nice to see that if they will start remaking figures,they will do other figures as well than JUST Ironman.

I guess their "Latest Technology" goes for Robotic/Metallic figures only.

I think it's because they used his likeness for their Hicks earlier without his approval.
Arnold was an excuse with the Battle Damage,doesn't look like him at all,just a messy Zombie.

This is the only reason that is holding HT back i think,they messed up once and might be afraid to approach Biehn,that or he has told HT to piss off.I really hope we get one though,one of my most wanted figures right now.

OMG I AM SOOO FREAKIN excited for ROBOCAIN!! I JUST bought the robocop and ed 209 hot toys for USD$130 and USD$180 each. Robocain would sit perfectly with the pieces I just bought!

Unfortunately both robocop and ed209 were missing the inner foams ((that comes with the box) but they still come with the box.

It was a local pickup so didn't have to pay for shipping. My friend helped me pick it up so he was unaware of the missing foam, do you guys think I got ripped off? (I'm not really aware of the going rate for both pieces since I've been having problems logging in to ebay recently ) Both pieces are in great condition but really bummed that I didn't get the foams. Hope I didn't overpay? What do you guys think? :(

Robocop 2 was a pretty crappy movie but it has an incredible amount of high school geek nostalgia for me. I loved how badass Cain was in the movie and have had a soft spot for its design ever since. This will be very tempting.

Its funny but as dated as it is the final battle between Robocop and Cain was much more satisfying in 1990 than Iron Man vs. Iron Monger was in 2008.

Bucky Underbelly
01-04-2012, 07:09 PM
Yeah, Robocop 2 was never a favorite of mine either. Disappointed by the movie, but I always dug Cain's design. For me it was kind of like Ridley Scott's Legend. Didn't like the movie at all, but that Darkness design kicks ALL available ass!

I'm really excited for this announcement. Aside from the lack of likeness, I thought the Hot Toys Robocop figure looked perfect, but it just went for way too much on the aftermarket. This is the perfect opportunity for me to snag a figure of one of my all time favorite movies.

Well I guess this is technically Robocop 2: one of the biggest disappointments I have ever had. Part of me died when I watched it. Everything about it was terrible. Someone earlier mentioned it was a "fun" movie. Nope. Maybe if you've never seen the first one. The characters were bad, the acting was laughable (at times when it wasn't supposed to be), the antagonists were awful, the story was stupid and contrasted with the resolution of the first one, and it just didn't feel AT ALL like Robocop 1. Throughout viewing it, I kept thinking "is this even Robocop? It looks like him, but it doesn't even sound like him. He doesn't even walk like him. Who is this guy? What is this movie?" And the stuff with the kid made me facepalm all the way through. Also, the movie doesn't even have a good resolution despite being two hours long. It lacked direction and the bad guy gets away.

As for Robocain, I might just get him. I may have hated everything about the sequel, but from a collector's standpoint it is basically a cool giant robot. Aside from the stupid CG head face thing Robocain was pretty epic. The last fifteen minutes or so of the movie with the fight between him and Robocop was cool. I commend them for trying to give Robocop a powerful foe and it was a nice contrast from the joke robots of the first movie. Plus, he'll look great alongside Robocop to make for some cool displays.

I hope Robocop comes with the needed parts for a clean look and battle damage. I don't care at all how they do his upper half of his face. I'll never display him like that (seriously it looks creepy in the movies I'm not sure why someone who want to display him like that) so it really doesn't matter to me, so long as they get the lips just right.

Oh and the "we're only human" line at the very end is completely awesome. I will give the movie that. It's not as memorable as the final words in the first one, but it's still great.

Joke robots of the first movie? Wasn't ED-209 the only other robot in the first one? I didn't really consider him 'jokey'. The failed Robocop IIs in the OCP scenes of the second film on the other hand.....:slap

Yeah I shouldn't use it as a plural. As for not considering him a joke, uhh what? His original appearance is one of the funniest scenes in the entire movie and it was supposed to be (when he blasts the guy with massive overkill) not to mention the scene with it falling on the stairs and such. Regardless, what I meant by joke was in reference to Robocop's strength. The cool thing about Robocain was how difficult he was to take down. It required a lot of effort not only by Robocop but the whole police task force. It made for a more an epic showdown.

I know the first film is supposed to be satirical and not entirely serious but theres nothing necessarily hysterically funny or implausible in a malfunctioning robot or the fact it 'overkilled' the guy - even if we were supposed to laugh. That they gave this demo-robot live ammunition seemed a bit silly alright along with any expectation by the people in the room that the guy could still be alive after that! :lol The temper tantrum after it fell down the stairs...I dunno, slightly funny, but then maybe a real robot designed like ED-209 would look equally funny trying to get back up after falling over. Anyway ED-209 in the first film had nothing on the stupid skull robot in 2 that shoots everyone in the room before turning the gun on itself. A ridiculously unlikely robot design...and again they give it a gun with live ammunition! Didn't they learn anything from the ED-209 incident. I guess this is me taking the first film too seriously or the filmmakers going too far with the absurdity in the second one.

Well the two robot demo things on TV were obviously supposed to be stupid and funny. Either way, I was specifically talking about the ED vs the Robocain.

Just thinking from a technical perspective. Robocop doesn't have to be a DX, but it can be developed more towards the features of the Ironman Mk VI.

They should include battle damaged interchangeable chest pieces, leg and arm pieces as well as the helmet.

As for Weller's face (assuming they have the rights to do it), they can easily make the whole face interchangable like how they've done with the Batman mouth portion. I'm thinking up to three expressions - straight face, angry face/puckered mouth, and injured/open mouth.

That'll be the ultimate Robocop figure.

The new one will probably have improved head-body proportions, more accurate to the film. Robocop has this huge upper body and a small looking head in the film which the old HT figure didn't get exactly right. The shape of the helmet always seemed wierd to me too but it could be that other companies got it wrong, not sure about that. The old figure also had a silly looking stalk neck which will hopefully be improved. With the advancements they've made in skin and skin texture, even if they don't have Weller's likeness rights (hopefully they do), the human mouth will look much more realistic.

Then it comes down to what it will come with, what interchangeable parts etc.

Pretty sure its going to a beast of a figure.

The reason it looked like hell was because, at the time, Peter Weller was focusing on his career as an art historian and had basically disowned Rocobop. He would not license his likeness. After the online community rallied to have a bronze statue put up in Detroit of Robo, he's come back around and has embraced the character. My guess is that we will see a very nice Weller head sculpt, though I can't imagine it will have a removable helmet. Probably two different heads.

If I recall Cain's feet are pretty big. They should be able to keep him steady in figure form, but then you have to worry about the knee joints not getting weak after a few years. This stuff isn't diecast though so it really shouldn't be a problem.

I'm of two minds, I do love the upgraded quality... but as someone who generally already owns these figures I'm left with deciding between selling the figures I have to upgrade, or having 2 of something.

Generally I'll sell off the old, but kind of a kick in the nuts when last week I could have sold Robo for $450, and now I get to watch the price steadily drop.

Get on selling it right now. When the DX Batman was announced I sold my first Dark Knight Batman for around 170.00


:goodpost::lecture:lecture:lecture

No need to whine about once you left a pile of money for the figure which wasn't worth it and now it's goin to be rereleased with 10x better Q and sells for the normal price. There was a tons of prerequisites for all this reissues and the only thing you had to do is wait patiently.
