Yeah I wouldn't get my hopes up, talked to Kathy and she said they are expecting the second batch in November with no date on when, so that could be like the end of the month :monkey2 December seems realistic, thankfully I'm also getting Dredd, BD T1 and maybe Robo all at the same time! So I have a big stash to look forward to.

Dredd is an awesome figure but requires assembly and repaint of the shoulders. The BDT1 is also an awesome figure.
The T1 Arnold really stands out on my shelf :yess:

I've been having a chat with M3Power and this whole "second batch" thing with Sideshow definitely adds weight to our discussion over whether Loonten actually shipped OUR Robocop figures last week or just any random package that was bound to get returned to sender a few days/week later just so he can buy time to acquire stock while not losing a sale due to the wait.

This entirely sucks. Both myself and M3 have been given the exact same excuses, anyone on here that ordered from Loonten who hasn't had this problem? best part about it is that my buyer protection has expired with eBay due to him putting it up for pre-order WAY in advance of the item actually arriving and then sitting on it for a few weeks before shipping PLUS this additional week.

Unbelievable mess really, if you've got yours then you are indeed lucky. Good luck everyone.


Looks like I made the right choice last week not to purchase from loonten, he emailed me to say he was getting stock that weekend and would ship few days after.. thought it was odd that his eBay shop still says preorder not "in stock"

Good luck guys and girls!!!!

Yeah he's dropped the ball and people should be very cautious in using him from this point onwards, I know I am. He's now just flat out ignoring me but I suspect everyone else who ordered (clearly not members here) are also giving him a well deserved hard time over it. I'm more screwed than most as my eBay Buyer Protection expired due to it being a very VERY long pre-order.

Still haven't found the space to open it yet. :slap Doesn't matter because I still need a mini screwdriver and batteries. You'd think for $300, they'd be included, but nope. I'll buy both tomorrow.

Ecko says the chair is "incredible in-hand, well-engineered."

BTW, does the figure pick up a lot of dust and fingerprints? Debating whether or not to buy surgical gloves, seems like a waste of money, but I don't want prints, oil, on this guy.

I don't think fingerprints would be a problem. But I'm sure dust will collect on all the plastic on it, but not diecast. Although I got no dust on the plastic of my ED 209, but it does collect on the dome and not anywhere else :dunno

I'm not just gonna sack out on a couch and open it up, I need my space. That's just me.

I'll open it up, check that everything is there, nothing is broken and that everything works and pack it all back up. I'll probably look at it every once in a great while. No room to display it at the moment.

I'll wait for a sale, hopefully, to pick up a second, figure only. That would be my Posin' Robo. Robo in chair will be the backup.

Ah right, I see :) Loonten is a swear word to me right now. :gah: his rep is ruined by this.

Weekend and it's time to open a dispute via eBay BUT! I know I won't get anywhere due to buyer protection on "pre-orders" that have a floating date. His listings still say pre-order, so he's likely never had them in stock in the first place. Just hope there are others who are raging at him right now.

Nope. But you would expect him to be ranting and raving as I have been if he had experience the same problem. From eBay stats alone this guy has sold well over a hundred of these things and I'm willing to bet at least half of those are now wondering what is going on. He's completely ignoring me now and that speaks volumes, he messed up and never had the product to ship but rather than lose a sale he told us all a load of lies. Now he can't source stock, which is why all his listings are still "pre-order". But he'll never admit it.

Watched a few clips of Robocop last night (i.e. Corner Store scene). This HT figure looks great but would have “Shined” if it was more of a gum metal hue. Take this figure tint it slightly darker and …….:drool

Finally got around to opening this guy and putting him on the shelf. Overall, I am very pleased. I do wish the color was more like the prototype, but it definitely is not bad at all. One thing that did kind of irk me was the pistons on the back of his legs. One of them had completely fallen out. Luckily it was fairly easy to put it back in, but it is a bit scary because it's such a thin fragile-feeling piece of plastic. Since the figure is marketed as a diecast figure (but has little diecast) and it costs $300, would it have killed Hot Toys to use a real metal rod for this pistons instead of plastic?

Anyway, here are some terrible phone pics :)

I don't have exact measurements, but the T-800 stand is definitely a bit taller. 2-3 centimeters if I were to guess. When you put them side by side without the stands, the T-800 is still a bit taller, but not by as much. Here are some pics

If you look at some of the other pics and videos around, you've actually done quite well to just have that. Others have been shown with significant scratches, non matching paint sections and uneven paint application. If you're being 100% museum perfection, Hot Toys mostly manage about 70% in my personal experience. There are usually a few odd things here and there you could use to distinguish your figure from any other of the same model... *if* you're a total hawk for every single detail :)

I don't own Terminator so it has no affect on me, but I'd take a Robocop that's shorter and properly proportioned to himself, over one that looks like he was stretched out on a rack. The extendable torso is for achieving ab-crunch poses; if he's standing straight up with the torso extended it looks all kinds of wrong.

Vortex
11-12-2014, 02:31 PM
Just got mine! Stunning in hand, feels like a million bucks (ok$300)..good heft and that's without the batteries. Solid joints stands great without the stand. Looks incredible even though it is the wrong color. All that goes away pretty fast when you start messing around with him. He looks like a damn jewel standing there before your eyes. Mint indeed.

Quite simply the best Robo ever released and I cannot wait to add the BD. Only negative is they didn't include the gun holding hand, and it is kind of a big deal on the patience meter. Going to have to get some blue tack or something..

All and all a fantastic release and every bit worthy of 'figure of the year' status. Simply blown away. Yankees open yours.

I've been thinking similarly about those long ankle pegs (height extenders) on figures like the T-800. I think they raise the knee too much and make the lower legs look unnaturally long. Achieving a more desirable height is all well and good but at the cost of the internal proportions? It doesn't sit well with me anymore.

So is the general consensus for those who have received your Robocop’s that you are filtering past the inaccurate colour and are amazed at the beauty of the figure? How many of you think the colour is perfect?

Basically yeah. The color is too silver but it still looks amazing. While I do wish the color was more like the prototype, I take some small consolation that, to my knowledge, no mass produced RoboCop toy has EVER gotten the color right. Every RoboCop toy I have ever seen or owned has been silver (or blue). So, in that respect, it's to be expected I suppose. Presumably it is either too expensive and/or too difficult to recreate the paintjob seen on screen in a mass produced toy. If it weren't then I'd think we'd have seen another company do it by now.

When the preorder picts went up last year, I immediately went on the fence. I didn’t care about the die cast or the sound feature. Was not too excited about the price but most of all I wanted a unmasked head to be included (BD was not announced then). So instead of jumping up and down in excitement (like I have with so many other announcements), I admit I was disappointed. Fast forward to the announcement of the BD version (stand alone version). The head sculpt is truly amazing but the combination of lack of accessories (BD helmet accessory), no diecast/sound feature at the same price as the regular version (reused parts) had me again not jumping up and down in excitement and left me once again disappointed.

Both presentations have a “lacking” feeling for me. I have already decided that $600+ to own both figures is way too much. So I pull out the calculator and do some calculations. Do I decide to get the regular version and buy the BD head down the road or Purchase the BD version and pick up the BD helmet on ebay.

And now today as the pics are rolling in, the figure looks great but I am not IN LOVE with the shiny paint. It lacks the “essence” of the Robocop I know. I went back to page one and immediately fell in love with the pro to “blue/gun metal” colour scheme.

Overall I just don’t know. Finding it very hard to pull the trigger on both versions. I have this “I’m not convinced” feeling. Part of me is saying hold off for a possible Robocop 2 version. I can see HT milking the Robo license (maybe one of the reasons colour was off). Maybe when Robocop 2 is released it might be full of incentives to force people to triple dip!!!!

Just my thoughts and feelings as a collector. I mean no harsh words to anyone!

Word!!

Bo, yeah for $300 you have every right to have reservations, and you have plenty of time to think about it. Who knows, this might even go on sale. I had reservations myself until I got it in hand, even thought about cancelling after seeing the pics. It is a lot like the DX12 if you have that figure where it is just so much better in hand. Still, if you think the color will bother ya, maybe you could try and track one down and have a look at it in person and if that isn't a option, maybe get it from a place that has a good return policy. I think that once you have it though, you will want to keep it! Again, you have plenty of time to think about it.

Just got mine! Stunning in hand, feels like a million bucks (ok$300)..good heft and that's without the batteries. Solid joints stands great without the stand. Looks incredible even though it is the wrong color. All that goes away pretty fast when you start messing around with him. He looks like a damn jewel standing there before your eyes. Mint indeed.

Quite simply the best Robo ever released and I cannot wait to add the BD. Only negative is they didn't include the gun holding hand, and it is kind of a big deal on the patience meter. Going to have to get some blue tack or something..

All and all a fantastic release and every bit worthy of 'figure of the year' status. Simply blown away. Yankees open yours.

Congrats on the pickup, man! :clap I'm glad you love the figure, now I'm even more amped up to liberate Robo's shiny ass from his cardboard prison. :lol But first, I have to get batteries and a screwdriver.

Not sure if this was mentioned yet. Was checking out some reviews and noticed the diecast parts had a slight purplish hue to it. Does everyone see this on their figure? I find it's pretty dumb if it does. Cause not only do they market it as "diecast" but have less than 20% of it being that material and then shamelessly charging us $300 bucks for it. But their decision to do so may have also led to a defective product where the paints don't match with that purplish hue. I would have rather they made it all non-diecast if doing so means we don't get mismatched colors.

And I agree with everyone.. the overall paint job is a touch too silver for sure. it does need a touch of blue to it.

But still looking forward to this figure. Like many ppl here, my buddy ordered this for my bday "last" year summer already and he didn't get any shipment yet. haha

That was OMG's photo, right? They don't have a purplish hue, OMG did that to differentiate which parts were diecast.

Edit: Assuming this is a legit question, that's just the way Robo was painted. It's not just the arms, but you can see it in the torso and the rest of the body as well, some purples will come through.

Me too, trust me, I've been bugging them for the last like 3 days and they haven't budged one single bit on when and where the second batch is, kinda pisses me off that they give 1 to IGN to review, but not to Michael Crawford a real figure reviewer and a 2nd one to Kotaku instead of say to someone who ordered this in Jan., after all I'm going through I'm seriously re considering supporting SS on any PO's I just about cancelled the ones I got with them now because of Robocop, honestly they shouldn't have put up a PO so early, or even put a tentative date on anything when they know the figure wont in fact come out at that date. If I were you guys I wouldn't PO the BD one yet till it comes really close to release like say when HK gets theirs.

Nah you know what you could be right. Perhaps saying I ''won't be happy'' with Hot Toys is a little dramatic when the situation could be what you describe. It'll be interesting nonetheless to see if any custom paintjobs emerge that look like the movie and how complicated a process it was.

So is the general consensus for those who have received your Robocop’s that you are filtering past the inaccurate colour and are amazed at the beauty of the figure? How many of you think the colour is perfect?

I know it's not perfect, but it is fantastic all the same. He looks sharp alone, he looks great with my other 80s HTs - heck, he looks great hanging with the Iron Man armors. I'm super excited I sprung for him.

My only two nitpicks - I just can't get the gun to sit naturally and be secure and the chins don't quite fit - I put a little crease in one already (damn!) from it being too tight a fit. Those to me are far bigger (& still tiny) issues than the exact coloring. I just read it here somewhere - for some reason that metallic/oil slick color from the movie just seems impossible to replicate. And in that regard, better silver than blue.

I agree silver is better than blue, just look at V.1 but, as said before in those poor sweatshops they just can't replicate perfection on a huge scale, or so I would assume, until they show pics of the factory.

What's the matter with you man? People aren't allowed to voice their opinions? Regardless of whether I'm getting it as a gift or not has no bearing on whether I'm allowed to speak up. I would have bought the figure either way. And I think I'm also totally warranted about my comment on them claiming it's a diecast series and charging $300 bucks for it when only less than 20% of it is diecast. Is this not correct? Or do you agree with that action? And are the diecast areas not slightly purplish? I haven't seen it in person yet, but based some reviews that's what I see. Hence why I'm asking here. I don't see anything wrong with that either.

Instead of just flat out labeling people who have the guts to voice their opinions on a $300 figure as a troll. Why don't we just talk about the facts instead and not be afraid of people voicing concerns about a figure. If it wasn't for people like me who actually have some standards and are willing to speak up when things are off, the Christopher Reeve Superman figure (which I own and appreciate very much) wouldn't have been improved from the prototype, which was definitely off. Or the changing (improving) of the amazing spiderman 2 fabric for the suit. These things happen when there's people who are willing to voice up concerns instead of just bandwagon jumping fanboys who turn a blind eye over any issues.

Instead of acting like a fanboy, let's be pragmatic. Is there a slight purplish hue to the die cast parts? And is the overall color tone too bright gray compared to the movie? I haven't seen my figure yet in person hence why I'm asking here. I don't see anything wrong with that. Even if it has these issues, from what I can see it still looks great and isn't a deal breaker for me. But if the purplish hue to the die cast parts are noticeable, then I'd be disappointed in Hot Toys decision to purposely add a few diecast part just so they can label it "die cast" to justify them charging $300, while leaving us with a figure with slightly mismatched colors from diecast to non diecast parts. I would have rather paid a lower price and having it all plastic with one consistent color (no purple hue) if that's the case. I think that is a valid point don't you think? However, here's hoping the purplish hue isn't very noticeable in person.

Well you seem like a troll especially considering you have no re-guard for others comments I guess you don't have time to read others comments, someone answered your question posts ago, go back and check also I wasn't the only one that called you out on being a troll. Try posting more and getting involved with this community and I wont judge you as one, I respect your opinion and yes you should speak on behalf of not liking something, but considering you don't have it in hand its hard to have a opinion, and since others including myself are here everyday just about I'll take their word on the paint job, not sure if you have read prob. not but the diecast isn't for the high price but prob. for Peter Weller's likeness a good example of license issues is the whole Disney/Star Wars Red 5 figure coming out and the raising of prices, if you don't like it then you might want to find another hobby cause thats the direction this hobby is going sorry. Just look at Red 5 its 240.oo which is 60.00 cheaper than Robocop and has no diecast or likeness of Mark Hamill but I wont waste my breath with you if you are not willing to read other's posts.

It's not a matter of "replicating perfection", the silver base just needs to be a couple of shades darker is all. Pearlescent paintjobs are pretty, but they're not amazingly complicated.

Good point but do you work for them?, I love you Walker cause you have no love for Hot Toys, just like I have no love for the blind that follow SS and their bad paint applications, but unless we work at their factories we will never know what it takes to replicate the paint job, especially on a scale that is worldwide, I'm surprised they do the job they do, like I've said it prob. a sweat shop with people that have little or no art talent so what we get is better than most past releases which I'm happy with, its not perfect but better than my V.1 which I did own and I'm happy with that, I could careless about gimmicks just give me a good sculpt and a decent paint job and I'm happy it looks like Robocop good enough for me.

@Eric923, the figure has purple hues running through the whole thing, it is suppose to be there. However, if you are saying you believe the hues stand out more in the die cast areas of the figure, they do, BUT.. at the same time everything blends very well. Just wait until you get the figure, you will see what I mean. It isn't like this or anything:
145988



On another note, and i believe someone else already brought this up, the crotch grabber really doesn't seem to do anything as far as holding the figure. It's a good thing the joints are tight and you can balance the figure well, but shall they loosen up too much I would imagine a few dives happening.

Not sure if this was mentioned yet. Was checking out some reviews and noticed the diecast parts had a slight purplish hue to it. Does everyone see this on their figure? I find it's pretty dumb if it does. Cause not only do they market it as "diecast" but have less than 20% of it being that material and then shamelessly charging us $300 bucks for it. But their decision to do so may have also led to a defective product where the paints don't match with that purplish hue. I would have rather they made it all non-diecast if doing so means we don't get mismatched colors.

And I agree with everyone.. the overall paint job is a touch too silver for sure. it does need a touch of blue to it.

But still looking forward to this figure. Like many ppl here, my buddy ordered this for my bday "last" year summer already and he didn't get any shipment yet. haha

kairus pretty much addresses your concerns in his video. He says that the purple paint applications on the upper arms and calves and lower legs are noticeable on one side, but not as much on the other. Do most, if not all, of the figures have uneven, perhaps sloppy, paint apps? I haven't opened mine yet, but I'll look for this.

He also said he posed Robo in the chair overnight and noticed the next day a bit of creasing in the rubber, right behind the knees. That means don't leave Robo, for any length of time, in anything other than a museum pose!

I'm wondering if the creasing is permanent or temporary
Nothing sloppy about my robos paint job. I wouldn't call the example above sloppy, just inconsistent

If it's the same as the Iron Man figures which it feels like, then the ceases are not an issue. Nearly all the iron man figures have similar joints and there have not been any reported problems that I've heard of.

It's not a matter of "replicating perfection", the silver base just needs to be a couple of shades darker is all. Pearlescent paintjobs are pretty, but they're not amazingly complicated.


That's what I was thinking as well. A gray candy would do the trick without leaving behind the glimmer of a pearl. Though a little too dark this is a gray candy over what looks like a silver base.

If transparent purple hues are doable a more accurate color should have been too.

We can’t assume that HT will get the 100% match with R2 colour (since they missed the mark with this release). Maybe just maybe HT was thinking of the "triple dip". How to get collectors who already dropped $600+ (regular and battle damaged) back for a third time. If the regular release is way to silver perhaps we don’t make the R2 way too blue? Lets tone it down a bit? I’m just thinking out load here. Makes sense in a way though right??

I wish Hot Toys could be like Extended Edition LOTR or Hobbit Blu rays….being informative and detailed!
Is Prototype pending all they need as defense to shield themselves from the final product colour and even the amount of die cast? I don’t know the answer to this.

We all love Robocop. We have been anticipating and wanting this figure to arrive in our homes for a long time. In our excitement are we being too forgiving? Could you filter past the colour of HULK if he was blue? I like this Robocop. I might end up getting it. But I know half of me might be saying “DAMMIT it could have been so much better if it was….."

It seems like with too many HT releases, no matter how great they are, there's a caveat, a "Yeah, but," that's somewhere in there. Even the DX09 - one of the best figures in the company's history - had that visible, ugly, seam in the back of the head for the PERS.

Yes, HT smoked it with the prototype, nailing both the color and look of the armor and the skin tone. I wouldn't mind if HT tried to replicate both in production and failed, either due to complications in the process or the costs involved. Maybe it's a whole different reason altogether.

But if we ever find out HT knew it couldn't do any of that from the very beginning and bandied about that Manna-From-Heaven prototype anyway, I'll be friggin' pissed.

Yeah, I mean really if people think you can't pose the figure, then those people really have grounds for not owning it. If it doesn't even function, why buy it?

Rubber on the ED-209 deteriorates and that's not because it's a moving part, it's because of the material. So if you've got RoboCop, there's no reason not to pose him. If you're terrified to do it, save your money and pass on the fig I reckon :)

I never said you couldn't pose it. I meant that it may not make sense to leave it in anything other than a neutral pose for an extended period of time. :slap

Easily the Figure of the Year for me. Beautiful.

My only gripe is the lack of a molded gun hand, but that's minor.


I may be in the minority on the color issue (or at least in the camp that hasn't been terribly vocal on the boards) but I think the color is great. I've never been a huge fan of the blues and purples -- even in the movie -- so having a more silver/gray Robo is just fine by me. That said, mine does have some fairly obvious touches of both colors.

Anyhow, he's my favorite figure of the year. Well done, HT. Well done.

Prototypes are done 1:1 not scale but it is made by one person, just like the person having theirs airbrushed that one will prob. look like the prototype thats why there is a disclaimer "product will not look like prototype", they take care in making most prototypes when it comes to making them, the final version is made in a factory, come on guys have a little common sense. I'm thinking about posting a timeline of every Robocop figure released just to show how lucky we are we got what we got, and no its not being kind cause he just came out, like Bo Shrek said, not at all I don't have the figure yet, but I had the first one, and this is a vast improvement on that or any other Robocop I've ever had before, in person it must look even better from what people are saying in here.

Which amounts to the same thing. I mean, who buys a figure to occasionally pose it but always return it to having no joints bent by default? Defeats the object surely? :)

Depending on the figure I don't do many poses, because Hot Toys has a huge known issue with QC and its a good thing I do that, because god forbid I have to sell them they come to the seller in mint or perfect condition, and I like museum poses, for Robo its going to be hard though cause I really want to post him with his right arm in the 90 degree angle like most have him in, we'll see once I get him.

Well yeah. I mean you can get a statue from PCS. The whole point of this is that you can pose him. But if you can't leave him like that, I'd say what I said before; if that's an issue for you, that's a reason not to purchase imho :)

Yeah I mean I just see reviews of people treating this figure like its a toy you can just buy at ToysRus and forget they spent $300.00 on it when Hot Toys has major issues, so museum poses have always been the way to go for me, on things like rubber suits or any rubber, but not on humans, but then again go check out the Joe Colton page, mine has a loose leg and I don't even want to pose that one any more :(

I don't think anyone's disagreeing that this isn't the best Robocop figure ever made. And we've all read the "Prototype shown, final product may be slightly different" disclaimer. But generally speaking, for about the past 4 years Hot Toys has been very good at delivering product that comes very close to the prototype originally shown; as in, without comparing the two side by side it would be very difficult to spot the differences (apart from when the headsculpts sometimes come out soft). But, I don't recall Hot Toys ever showing a prototype that was one color and shipping product that was a different color before (someone correct me if I'm wrong there).

They don't just send the prototype over to the factory and see what comes out the other end 12 months later; as I understand it, the artists, painters and sculptors work with the factory to ensure their work comes across as much as possible in the final product. They'll do tests, create new paint techniques if need-be, etc. That's part of why these things take so damn long to actually release after announcement. Which is why it surprises me that the Hot Toys team took a look at the chrome Robocop production tests and said, "yup that'll do, ship 'em!". And it's not a case of ignorance on their part;we know they know what color it's supposed to be because they nailed it with the prototype.

Good point but do you work for them?, I love you Walker cause you have no love for Hot Toys, just like I have no love for the blind that follow SS and their bad paint applications, but unless we work at their factories we will never know what it takes to replicate the paint job, especially on a scale that is worldwide, I'm surprised they do the job they do, like I've said it prob. a sweat shop with people that have little or no art talent so what we get is better than most past releases which I'm happy with, its not perfect but better than my V.1 which I did own and I'm happy with that, I could careless about gimmicks just give me a good sculpt and a decent paint job and I'm happy it looks like Robocop good enough for me.

Mate, you can do a full pearl paintjob on a car by yourself. There's an extra step involved in applying the paints, but it's pretty much all in the paint. It's not magic. :)

Well sir I'm not a mechanic so I have never worked on a car, and if everyone could do it they wouldn't need KC on Fast and Loud (tv show) to just do the paint if everyone could do it, just like he can't do the mechanics on cars, it takes a artist, which is beyond my basic high school art skills so yeah it might take magic, other wise I'm sure it wont blend together, not everyone is as talented as you :monkey3

I wasn't (and still amn't) an expert on Robocop accuracy but even I could tell that the chest was the wrong shape, so was the head and the shoulders didn't go up anywhere near high enough.

A scenario..... If everyone said WTF to the paint and limited Diecast, packed up their figures and returned them do you think it would force HT's to provided a explanation to their decision on the colour? Do you think after spending $300 we are entitled to more insight of the production details? Seems that's we are happy of what we are receiving but with a Astirics!

That's never gunna happen, most people myself included love this piece, I think they did a very nice job with the paint, its not perfect but nothing is in this hobby, its a beautiful figure, FOTY IMO. It can take on a different look depending on your lighting, I'm far from a master photographer and I think I pulled off a couple of nice photos to show off the look you can achieve with colored detolf LEDS, I know that shouldn't be a requirement to own the figure but even in normal light you can see the colors in the paint.

So are all you guys on board for the Battle damaged as well? I want one but I don't think I want to drop $650 for two Robocop figures. I'm truly undecided as to which to purchase. Value wise it seems like the Regular is a no brainer. BD just seems to steep in price for the offering.

Yes without a doubt I will, the headsculpt had me at hello, then they announced the regular Murphy and then I was like :

The price doesn't bother me because I always do flexpay you should really look into it mate, its a lot easier and doesn't make the high price tag that bad. I would only do this for characters I like, Robocop and BTTF, same way I'm sure A-Dev buys Terminators.

Well sir I'm not a mechanic so I have never worked on a car, and if everyone could do it they wouldn't need KC on Fast and Loud (tv show) to just do the paint if everyone could do it, just like he can't do the mechanics on cars, it takes a artist, which is beyond my basic high school art skills so yeah it might take magic, other wise I'm sure it wont blend together, not everyone is as talented as you :monkey3

It's not even talent. It's not the Mona Lisa. It's a frigging coat of paint!

Just wait till it goes on sale, but depending on how people act maybe they are waiting like you to see more pics and reviews, but I say wait for a $20 dollar off coupon time and flexpay this sucker, but I'll tell you for sure after the 25th when I get mine, though I already know I'm not going to be disappointed.

After spending a few day with the new robo and comparing it to the enterbay version, I feel the ht version is a better representation of robocop
Not only am I referencing the figure itself but also the general feel that your looking at robocop
The articulation on the ht version is key. I wouldn't call it overly special as it has it flaws when certain parts are exposed(arm rod over extended, gaps in the wrist and ankles) it's just that the eb version is that bad in comparison
Now, I'm not a good poser by any means but the eb version cannot even bend 90 degrees in the arm/elbow, has very little ab articulation, and the neck is limited by a remote feature instead of having a joint
The ability of the ht version to hit iconic poses is what makes it feel more like robocop

The figure itself is also better starting at the helmet. The eb version does seem too long/tall when compared to the ht version. Both do good jobs on the sculpts, both have their advantages(ht = variety of mouthpieces, eb = better skin tones)
The one spot where the eb version might win is the body. Articulation aside, it provides a more accurate paint job and it's proportions are a little more accurate. The eb arms are attached a little higher but neither are high enough
Ht hands blow away the eb version as do the forearm areas. It's a struggle to keep the forearm pieces on the eb version while adjusting the hands
When compared to the ht version, the eb does feel somewhat cheap, especially for the price
Neither are perfect. Hot toys had the opportunity to really make the figure close to perfect with a better paint job, but I do think it's the best version out there

***** and moan? Who? Moi? :monkey3 :lol

I mean it's obviously the best 1/6 RoboCop ever made and very likely tops the EB Robo as the best high-end Robo collectible (outside of maybe 1:1) period, but it doesn't look nearly as accurate as the proto. That being said, it's not a deal breaker.

Looking Sick Mike, really digging the chain link fence in the background, really helps set the tone for his Chair room!!!
Good catch, I missed it the first time around
Mr Ecko, what/where did you that fencing in that scale, would be an easy dio to setup that adds a big punch to the look

So are all you guys on board for the Battle damaged as well? I want one but I don't think I want to drop $650 for two Robocop figures. I'm truly undecided as to which to purchase. Value wise it seems like the Regular is a no brainer. BD just seems to steep in price for the offering.
Since the battle-damaged is essentially a glorified repaint of this figure (albeit a really good one), I want to get this figure in-hand first to make sure I love it enough to own two versions before placing an order for the other one. If the chrome paint is as bad in hand as it appears in many of the photos in videos, I'd also consider selling this version and getting the battle-damaged version in its place this time next year. The other one is still chrome instead of gun-metal blue/grey, but there's enough dirt and grime to really reduce the overall brightness, at least in the prototype.

I loved your review and you hit every point dead on 5X10 I think its funny that someone right away jumped at it and said the enterbay one is still more movie accurate :lol but regardless best review, hardcore fans will prob. want to own both but like you said for the price of the EB one it shouldn't feel cheap, great review man thanks for you imput.

Still don't get why would anyone wants to compare the two, very different product but I guess it's the " my dad is stronger than yours" syndrome.
Ill play too :)
I think hot toys ed209 is much better than the Neca one.

I finally decided for the robocop with chair, he looks freaking iconic in it.
But that lootentoy is quite weird, he finally got back to me he has shipping material but dont send me the invoice...

Man, I can't imagine passing on this figure solely based on the paint color. It doesn't look just like the film, but it's not like it's green or orange or something way off. It's not chrome either. I've seen some people refer to it as chrome, but that is incorrect. If you are waiting on a perfect paint job that looks exactly like the character appeared on screen in a mass-produced action figure then I can respect that, but I fear you may still have a very long wait ahead.

i know its a stupid comparison as they really arent direct competitors, i just felt compelled to do it since there is a constant comparison on the boards and the HT version bumped the EB version out for my fav figure

Actually the holster isn't crappy after all! Nearly everyone has missed the additional fold in the holster door, which ClipperKing was kind enough to point out in a follow-up video he posted earlier this week. Check it out at the 5:25 mark.

No, I got it from the HK site Spanbauer posted. With the right lighting, it does look more movie accurate.

Yeah, it is. It's pretty much a reuse from the 1.0 figure, not accurate at all. I noticed this when HK photogs first put their pics up. The side panel doesn't operate that way, it swivels rearwards and stops.

The NECA spring-loaded holster is much more faithful to the mechanism. Go to 7:00.

I get that the ass isn't supposed to swing open - the metal on the back of the shouldn't move at all while the front and side splits open like the NECA figure - but the holster is looking way better now than it did early on. At first it looked like the whole leg just swung open as one single piece and that was it; people weren't sliding the front piece forward or using the hinge that splits the door - so with what we know now I'm much happier about it than I was.

That said, for $300 it should have been accurate, and I'd have loved it if Hot Toys just straight-up ripped off NECA's spring-loaded holster feature, only with a more well-hidden switch. But as I said, knowing that there's the extra hinge in the door makes me much happier.

No, HT didn't even have to make it "pop open" as in the NECA figure or the movie. Just recreate the mechanics and have us open the panels, one at a time, with the magnetic stick. And have the holster slide out, manually.

That way, you don't have any inaccurate, ugly, zigzag seam on the back of the thigh. But nope, HT just did what it did with 1.0. Lazy.

Since they announced the BD Robo it's been the only one I've wanted. You can easily buy an additional head for a helmeted version. Still, I feel a little cheated knowing it should have had the sounds clip option for the price tag.

I know a lot of guys think it's a cheap gimmick, but I would've appreciated sound features with the BD Robo. Just having him say, "Clarence!," "I'm not arresting you anymore" and "Murphy" would've been awesome. They're all pretty memorable lines to me.

Nah dont worry, to be fair you can compare both on the sculpting, wich one got the shapes right.
Its just that it usually turn not an EB vs HT thing wich is childish.
Like you i Will own both, i Will probably spend more Time posing playing with the HT one, as the EB is a beautiful articulated statue, museum like item.
Congrats on your figure too mate ;)

Totally agree. Robo is easily in my top five sci-fi films and totally quotable. Even some of the lesser lines are still cool, "They'll fix you. They fix everything" etc

The math just feels wrong with the pricing of the regular and BD Robocops. I wonder if anyone can give it a good argument. HT’s put the price high on the regular version (I would say a extra $50) from regular MMS figures due to the sound feature and die cast. Yet they priced the BD the exact same with these features removed. Sure you can argue head sculpt and likeness rights but is the head sculpt equal to four mouth plates, two helmets, two armour chest, sound feature and die cast? Im sure Jack Nicholson doesn’t think so.! Pound for Pound BD has a overall overpriced feeling. The bare bones accessories does not help it case either. We received a potato peeler with Heath Joker a pen with T-1000 but HT could not throw in a drill, removed helmet or a tiny mirror. Baby food and a big gun same stand does not do it any favours. Feels rushed. Where’s that Budget Stark, maybe he can get to the bottom of this.

I think the uniqueness of the release itself explains the higher price point. Has there ever before been a full-reveal Peter Weller RoboCop, in any scale?
