After looking at this piece for a few days now I would say that the armor is definitely more chrome than I would've liked, that's why I will likely display him only in BD (until the BD murphy comes out that is). The plan was to put the EB back in pristine mode but since their engineering is not clever like HT and the fingers will fall off again when I touch them I will probably put it off till later. Unlike the HT 1/4 vs 1/6 endoskeleton, which I would pick the 1/4 any day of the week, it's a bit of a toss-up for me with the Robo. I hope HT brings out the different colored armor and battle damage from RC2 and I would actually love to have a dismembered Robocop as well...they can make it a small diorama bust piece like they did with Terminator salvation and Iron Man with all of murphy's tubes hanging out and PERS so we can roll his eyes back :)

Great comparison shot jlyc. From your photos I like the Hot Toys much better than the EB. EB needs a bigger wider chest--his head looks like a big melon.

Man, I wish more EB owners would actually push the faceplate all the way up. It wouldn't look like a melon that way.

It can actually be done. It's meant to be done....

Great to see such good pics, from everyone. Also glad everyone loves their Robo's as well. Is anyone else waiting on this guy? Or did everyone finally get theirs? Feels like next year will be the year of Hot Toys with so many things coming out in 2015, I was getting ready to have my collection done but with Star Wars and John Matrix in the horizon I guess I'll continue to collect.

Took a few preliminary photos tonight; will do a full-on photo shoot this weekend when I can be home during daylight.

I don't have a whole lot to say about Silvercop that hasn't already been said; all the critiques about the paint and the skintones are true, although the skintones don't bother me as much as others. I'm also not having any issues with ankle articulation or an uneven application of violet between the arms and chest as some have reported; I would almost consider those units to be defective if I were those owners.

The articulation is very nice; love the smooth-rolling neck joint, ratcheted knees, extendible torso and that ball-jointed bend where the black gloves meet the metal (that's movie accurate too). I was expecting more degrees of articulation in the elbows, but the rubber makes the arms bounce back at least 10 degrees from where they're capable of bending. Would have liked more pivot in the ankles as well.

Sound effects work great; no complaints there. I think the face sculpts and paint application (apart from the darkness) all look fantastic, and the likeness of course is spot on. Reviewers all seemed to quickly write off the puckered lips mouthplate, but I quite like it; looks like he's mid-sentence in threatening some d-bag with a bad-ass one-liner.

I agree wholeheartedly that he should've included a sculpted gun hand. Yeah, you can get him to hold the pistol but it takes about 60x longer than popping it into a sculpted hand would take. It always discourages me to repose a figure when I know there's that one thing that's going to take for-damn-ever to re-adjust if I touch him (Keaton's cape, anyone?). Love the rubbery feel of the black bits around his chin and the hands; has a nice premium feel to it.

The holster works well enough (be sure to fold that door and pull the front panel forward people!) but the actual part where the gun sits feels super-chincy, wobbling around and always falling back into the leg. Would have loved for that bit to be stiffer. The stand is just as bad as everyone says; totally worthless in actually supporting the figure (do they even try this crap out?) and impossible not to scratch. I've had the figure for all of six hours and the surface of my stand looks like its been through war.

Silvercop is very silver, and thats very disappointing. He photographs well in controlled lighting environments, but under your typical yellow indoor lightbulb he looks like a flat white silver with no blues/violets whatsoever, and thats just gross looking. I'm also afraid that posing him alongside ED-209 just accentuates the problem; when you see the two together you realize all the more how silver Silvercop is. The box credits JC Hong, Jason Woo and Ray Ling as the "painting controllers", so I guess we have them to thank for Sterling Silvercop. It does really drag down an otherwise remarkable figure.

Value-wise, given the limited accessories, shoddy base and minimal diecast used, I'd say he's about $75 overpriced. $50 if I'm generous. But again, I'm not saying anything everyone else doesn't already know. Pretty sure I was the last person on the planet to receive this figure :p

I will enjoy Silvercop all the same; I just wish what I saw standing in front of me actually looked like what he does in these photos I took.

Thanks fellas. I can't wait to take more photos, including some of him with ED.

Looked at him again this morning in the light. He's a sharp-looking figure, no doubt. Still truly frustrating how they had nailed the paint color on the prototype, and yet totally missed the mark in production and no one at Hot Toys felt the need to step up and say, "now wait a minute here...". This is the equivalent of ordering a metallic-grey car from the dealer and receiving a white-silver car. This is not the same, and someone at Hot Toys should have done something about it. I'd be less upset if they just got it wrong from the start; its how they had it right and then made it wrong thats so frustrating.

So, who's going to be the first collector to find a spray that can go over the silver bits of the figure to darken him up without eliminating the violet tones? :D

It still won't hold it very well.

But yeah, what do you do. I'm actually looking into buying an extra hand and superglue the damn thing.

I used poster putty on mine, works very well. But learn from my mistake use a little ball at the palm and not near the fingers, made the mistake of using to much and near the fingers so when I pushed them together some got in to the finger joints and took a bit to clean it up.

I think they should but we all know they will not.

I truly think that if the BD version came with a BD helmet accessory and was around the $250 price point it would be a no contest which I would purchase. I am only leaning towards the Regular version because of the greater value of what I receive for $300. I don’t give a rats ass to the three baby bottles and the big gun.

So, who's going to be the first collector to find a spray that can go over the silver bits of the figure to darken him up without eliminating the violet tones? :D

funny you mention this... when i've been looking at him and how crazy shiny/silvery it looks... i've been contemplating what it would look like w/ a light hitting of a psuedo dull coat/semi gloss coat of clear mix w/ a little color matched pearl... would bring out the blueish pearl a bit more and darken it a tad...

honestly if your torn on buying it... it takes nothing more than looking at my last pic. or the ones w/ ed209. that is how it pretty much looks in real life. normal lighting, no special stuff, etc. if you can tolerate the color or it doesn't bother you that much, its great all around except for the fiddly gun hand.

no chief that's a picture of my desk of my figure in normal lights, no funky affects, filters, types of lights etc. straight up 40 watt bulb lamp standard in any home providing light to my figure. you prove my point in the color by your comment of "worst possible pic" granted its not a top o' the line camera... but still from my personal vision and the look of that pic i took... they are pretty much the same visually.

When PC said something about con lighting, I did not want to believe it. But he might be right. I know nothing about photography and lighting, but perhaps the bright lights dulled the armor and lightened the skin?

They definitely used a cooler white balance for the promotional pictures (the fact that the blacks and skintones also have a tint of blue to them gives that away), but that's not uncommon and I don't fault them for that; if the promotional shots didn't do their best to recreate the look of the character as seen in the film, then the photographer wouldn't be doing their job properly. Keaton Batman's photos were also shot with a blue cast to mimic the film; T2 and Classic predator were shot with an orange cast to mimic that standing-by-the-fire look.

But the figure definitely was never silver all along; from convention photos to photos of the figure in their official window display, the prototype never looked white silver like the production figure does. If the production figure was put in this same display case as the prototype is here, he'd look screaming white:

Based on absence of shadows on the mouth in your pics, that's what I figured. Nothing wrong with it of course, but I did notice that the flash for some reason gives the figure's armor more contrast than it has in reality, basically reversing the look of the silver. Instead of bright silver with a few dark spots, with flash on you get a dark figure with a few bright spots. I can't explain why that is, but it was an observation from last night when I forgot to shut the flash off for one photo:

I think people are so annoyed at this because its a case of what could have been. The colour on the promo Robocop from the con looks just perfect. If the production version had been this colour there would be no complaints and everybody would be happy as larry but this is bait and switch at its worst. They just didn't deliver on what they promised and sold us a dud unfortunately. There's no getting over the colour being wrong because most of his body is covered in armour.

I plan on getting the battle damaged version but if the armour looks as shiny bright as the regular versions I may have to have second thoughts about picking it up. This and the ed-209 fiasco haven't done anything to restore confidence in HT's quality control.

Well I’m “officially” out of the Regular Version Robocop game. Instead I will be making the Battle Damaged Purchase next year. I was always attracted to the BD version as the headsculpt (in movie) has been some of the best make-up effect done even to this day. It is the “head” more than anything that I want represented in my collection. Maybe I was leaning towards the regular recently because it was on the edge of being release and I wanted a Robocop now. But I am sure if I play the patient game I will personally be more happier. Part of the decision with BD I guess is when I look at my DX10 & DX13, both are great figures but personally I feel that the DX13 has more character due to the extra details coming out of the BD appearance.

I will however be picking up the regular version head from ebay and displaying it next to the BD figure in my cabinet. Still want that part of the regular version release!!!

i'm not 100% sure... it might snuff them down a bit. but you should be able to offset it by adding a touch of this to the clear...
Violet Satin Pearl pigment is great for making your very own pearl custom paint! (http://www.paintwithpearl.com/Pearls/pwp223/pwp223.htm)

its a purple satin pearl. im sure w/ some testing you could actually improve some of the pearl look as its inconsistent on the figure as well...

Hmm, looking at that comparison I can definitely see what you guys are talking about. It almost looks like a coating of a gunmetal gray would be enough to darken it the desired amount.

Still though, I'm more than happy with the figure as it is. I usually keep the lighting in my house fairly low anyway, so the brightness doesn't jump out at me nearly as much as in the pic above. And to be fair, most 1/6 figures tend to be off a bit from the real thing in one way or the other (color, detail, likeness, etc), so I never really expect anything to look 100% perfect.

Very hard for me to imagine how a novice paint job would improve Robo. How do you handle it afterwards w/o messing up the finish? And that's assuming you don't eff up the application, somehow. No way would I do it and I'd never buy the fig second-hand from someone that changed the paint, either, supposing anyone cares about re-sale.

:goodpost::exactly: Its easy to complain but after you saying that, I doubt anyone is actually going to make the jump.

Just gotta say this gets my vote for figure of the year. The realism and proportion they achieved on this outweighs any flaws this may or may not have. As for the "silver" paint issue - it becomes irrelevant the longer you have this figure in hand. My only worries with Robo are how well the rubber covering the elbow joints and knee joints will hold up over time.

Before this, I would have given the vote to the Mark XLII, but what they did on this release just blows the prior diecast figures out of the water. It could be because I am a long time Robocop fan, but the quality and care that went into making this shows through. An outstanding release which will not be beaten for a very long time.

Robo has less diecast than the Iron Man armors but weighs just as much. These just feel right at this weight and it does make the prior robotic releases feel cheap by comparison even though they weigh as much as most other figures. Robo is a great surprise this year and if you don't have him yet, you are missing out.

Just gotta say this gets my vote for figure of the year. The realism and proportion they achieved on this outweighs any flaws this may or may not have. As for the "silver" paint issue - it becomes irrelevant the longer you have this figure in hand. My only worries with Robo are how well the rubber covering the elbow joints and knee joints will hold up over time.

Before this, I would have given the vote to the Mark XLII, but what they did on this release just blows the prior diecast figures out of the water. It could be because I am a long time Robocop fan, but the quality and care that went into making this shows through. An outstanding release which will not be beaten for a very long time.

Robo has less diecast than the Iron Man armors but weighs just as much. These just feel right at this weight and it does make the prior robotic releases feel cheap by comparison even though they weigh as much as most other figures. Robo is a great surprise this year and if you don't have him yet, you are missing out.

Completely agree. My favorite figure this year for sure.

Yeah, what's to complain about. It's only the wrong colour....

If they nailed the color to what you Mr Walker thought was perfect some other SS freak on here would say its inaccurate. That's my point there is no pleasing everyone.

I actually looked into some seriously clever paint to replicate the film look. It can be done and not with permanent painted accents, but with genuine pearlescence. But damn is it expensive. Anyone looking to just do this with hobby paint would be well advised to leave well alone, unless you're happy for a figure to become a failed experiment.
Now that I'd like to see. A true pearlescent factory level finish would be a thing to behold. Just out of curiousity, how much did you ballpark it for? I'm guessing ~$900.00?

I can only notice the proto/production difference when the pics are posted side-by-side, to be honest. No doubt the prototype finish is superior but what we got is still pretty amazing, in my books. I had to cancel with a local distributor (they've just become too unreliable), so won't be getting Robo until February, but can't wait. Paired with ED and the BD Robo, it'll be a fantastic display (decided to reluctantly pass on the Alex Murphy figure). Kind of glad RoboCop 2 & 3 sucked as I have no desire for any characters from those movies. Too much Star Wars stuff coming out to be a fan of much else. :lol

Aside from the colour, other issues have been the lack of a gun hand and the lack of support/scratches on the stand. Do you guys think HT will address these issues with the release of the BD version. How do we get the message to them so that they will hear. There seems like a opportunity for HT to fix product issues with the BD release.

Looks like the same paint and finish as the one we just got, which kinda makes a little bit of sense. If we got the prototype finish it would be to dark and not match up with the clean version.

By that logic PopCollector, it'd be ok for Hot Toys to put Johnny Depp headsculpts on Tony Stark figures; I mean you can't please everyone and there'll always be minor details that aren't accurate anyhow so what does it even matter? :nana:

My point being, I'm sure you can acknowledge that there are varying degrees of what is and is not acceptable in the accuracy department; and every person is welcome to have their own level of standards. I don't think think it's unreasonable to expect a red and gold Iron Man to not come off the assembly line as pink and yellow.

And I don't think you'd find a single person who would argue that this figure would be worse-off if it had turned out prototype-grey instead of production-figure silver.

The different head was merely to point out the flaw in Popcollector's "what does it matter because some people will never be happy anyhow" argument. I DON'T think the color issue is as extreme as putting the wrong face on the body.

But white-Silver instead of gun-metal grey is no better in my book than getting a pink iron man suit instead of a red one.

I guess man, but we will never know, trust me if no one can be happy with MMS 238 or even John Matrix, it goes to show that not everyone would be happy regardless of a good sculpt or paint job. Even A-Dev has problems with DX13 so there you go even the best Hot Toy figure is flawed. I think the point I'm making is that even the "correct" color wouldn't fix everything people would find something to complain about.

Hey fellas, I tried out a Sideshow crotch grabber arm and it works perfectly with Robocop... it fits in between the thigh armor and is actually pretty well hidden. Best of all it actually allows the stand to keep him upright.

You really can't tell it's there, but I circled where the ball end of the grabber arm rests... and the curve of the arm is the same size as Robo's crotch/booty. It's like it was made for this figure :lol

No doubt his color is off from the movie, but it honestly is not something that bothers me as it's a close enough in my book. But I could see how it would be off putting for some.

Good point, man. Good way to highlight the lack of logic behind some statements. Some of these things being said like "what does it matter because some people will never be happy anyhow" or "If they nailed the color to what you Mr Walker thought was perfect some other SS freak on here would say its inaccurate. That's my point there is no pleasing everyone." are pointless and illogical statements. Because by this logic, or lack thereof, we should overlook all existing and real issues, regardless of the degree or magnitude of the problem just because there "might" still be one person who isn't happy even if they fix that issue? So if they put the wrong head onto another figure we still shouldn't complain because even if they fix it there will still be people who will complain about other stuff? Doesn't make sense, does it?

Even if there still might be someone that isn't happy if a figure is "hypothetically" perfect in another world, doesn't mean the current real issues or inaccuracies doesn't exist because they still do. And it doesn't mean people aren't allowed to talk about them.

Now the only question is just whether each person are ok with these issues or inaccuracies and to each his own. I might not be happy with some of these inaccuracies personally, but I'm also happy for others who are enjoying their figures regardless of these issues existing as they have a right to be so. Just as others have a right to not be happy about certain inaccuracies.

However, to pass judgement on a poster or posters who are only bringing up real issues by saying pointless stuff like "even if the paint job is correct those same people will still find something to complain about" is uncalled for. Because by stereotyping and passing such judgement on posters instead of just talking about the real issues will get us nowhere. For example, I have quite a few hot toys or enterbay figures in my collection and I've been happy with about 90% of them. I have the Christopher Reeve Superman figure and I enjoy it very much and have no complaints about it. Same with my recent Elder Predator figure. So it already proves such generalizing statements like "those same people who complain will never be happy" false and pointless. So yeah, if Robo kept the current quality of sculpt, but got the paint job more accurate I would definitely be happy.

It's simple, there are inaccuracies with the figure from the paint job to the brown skin tone. And the pink airbrushing on the deltoids could have been handled a bit better. We also got charged quite a bit extra money for 4 small pieces of diecast. These are facts. It's just a matter of whether each person is ok with them or not and it's fine either way.

I've owned the v1 and loved it for many years, but there is nothing on the original that is as good or better than this new version. I do wish the hands were sculpted, but the original ones don't look that good either. And as was said, the original did look like it was made of plastic, whereas the new one does look like metal, even if it's not as blue as it should be.


It wasn't too bad, a little too blue for my taste but was pretty decent for its time except for the sculpt by today's standards.

The v1 was one hell of an impressive figure for it's time (aside from the faces generic sculpt and basic paint) and I was more than happy to pay almost double for him compared to what other figures cost at the time. But, 1/6 has grown by leaps and bounds over the last decade and this new Robocop is about as good as it gets in 1/6.

I received my figure a few days ago and tried not to post any opinions until I had some time with the figure. Now that I've had it a few days, overall, I am extremely happy with the figure in terms of its engineering, build, likeness and quality. I don't think the skin tone on the face plates are too dark as a lot of others have suggested. I do, however, agree that the figure is too silver. The paint job in regards to quality, is top notch. But the bright silver and even worse, the reflective quality of the paint just makes the figure almost blinding even under normal lighting situations. It's not enough to ruin the figure for me, but I do think it's a real shame that HT's went with the bright finish for the final production piece. If they had made the paint just a few shades darker, it would have elevated the figure from awesome to FOTY for me.

Another legit complaint is the hands. I thought everyone was being overly critical of the figure when they said the hands were a POS. But it actually is damn near impossible to get the figure to securely hold the gun and have it look natural. Why HT did this is beyond me. It is also most certainly the reason they included the plastic gun, since there's no way in hell the articulated hands could support the heavy DC gun.

I still love the figure and think it's amazing despite its flaws. I also think the HT is a better value for your money than the EB 1/4 Robocop, which I also own. The EB Robocop's paint is just a tad bit darker than the HT, but it isn't reflective outside of its glossy finish. They both look equally impressive on display, but when you touch both figures, the HT just feels more solid and is better constructed than the EB version. I really wish I had experience with air brushing, because I would definitely try darkening the HT paint job if I could. Hope to see some other brave soul give it a go. Would love to see how much it could improve upon this near perfect figure.

Did you really just say that!? Yeah its still Robocop, but there is no pleasing some people. Holtrax, Mr. Walker, and others would still complain if we got the prototype. They would say the rings on his shoulders were wrong or the legs are too skinny or the chest is wrong. When its one of the best Robocop release to date.(Other than the EB one)

Don't presume to speak for me.

I love this figure.
I've been down on Hot Toys after being let down by the Silver Cent, but this figure nails Robocop.
Love the diecast, the rubber, and the finish. Great articulation and cool features.

Only complaint is that the ankles could use a bit more swivel.

Looks great on the shelf.
I hope to do a review and take some quality photos soon.

What was wrong with the Silver Centurion? Did they perchance make it a deep gun-metal grey with purple highlights?

It just looked off. The chest was too thick and the articulation wasn't impressive. Also I don't think I can buy a non-diecast HT anymore. Feels cheap. The paint was cheap too and stunk something awful. It also looked like **** on my shelf as the red was just too deep.

Someone else was having problems with him like towards the end of November, but seeing as SS doesn't even have stock for those that still have flexpays on him maybe Looten is waiting on his next shipment too. At least that would be the optimistic take on it, he could be a shady mother you know what.

I and SmoothEmjay got ours from him. It took a while but we eventually received ours. Yeah, took multiple emails back and forth and we even received bogus tracking info. Im thinking he's out of stock again but doesn't want to lose the sale which is the reason he keeps dragging it like he did to us. I even requested a refund but he finally shipped it out and we did receive him. You'll get it eventually bro. Just be patient.

I've always found loonten to be reliable and prompt and courteous with his responses to be honest so its strange why he'd be acting like this.

Ah. I must apologise, I was asking because I found humour in someone being unhappy with an entirely different figure called ''Silver Centurion'' when the primary complaint about this Robocop is that it's too silver!

I know there isn't much diecast on the outside of the figure, but he feels pretty heavy. Any chance the diecast is all on the inside? Like, maybe the frame or skeleton or whatever is diecast?

YankeesFanboy
12-06-2014, 08:03 AM
Sweet pics, Robban, you got the lower ab articulation to cooperate! :clap

According to Optibotimus, he weighs an ounce or two less than Mark 42, which checks in at nearly two pounds, but that's not too shabby when you factor in the dearth of diecast.

mister_e, the upper arms and lower legs, minus the shins, are diecast. The bottom of the feet are likely diecast as well. As to whether or not there's diecast inside the figure, I don't know.

I'm about as late to the party as one can be, but I finally picked up my Robo yesterday. This is one of the best put together figures I have ever seen. The articulation and movement are so perfectly engineered, it's sick. I was hoping the silvery color would simply be people's pics, but nope, this thing is definitely too silver, and the blue and pink tints are very subtle. When I look at this figure, I see a fantastic Robo, but I don't see screen Robo. I hope to either paint it like Robo1 or Robo2 soon.

I kind have to disagree with most of you on the coloring... the blues and purples ARE there if you put the right light on it.

You can see it in my photos and in the video I'm upping soon.
It really shows up on the lower legs and upper arms, but it's present on the chest too.

Maybe they could have tinted it a bit more but it's not worth bitching about as much as some have bitched.
My main issue is the ankle swivel not being there, but meh.

Sure if you ordered by credit or debit card you can contact your card provider and get them to issue a chargeback. There is usually no time limit on this so they will issue a chargeback long after you purchased. I did this for an item I had ordered recently which was purchased over 500 days ago and there was no issue.

I must say though i find this strange behaviour for loonten though as I always found him amicable and he always issued a refund for me when he couldn't provide the goods.

Hmmm...will it ever be socially acceptable to spend the majority of one's time on the Internetz? Are we there yet? Have we finally crossed that threshold? Maybe in a generation?

I've read about pub closings in the UK at an alarming rate because young people don't go out anymore. Any business that caters to 20-somethings have been or will continue to face that challenge.

It's only going to get worse (or better, depending on your POV). Remember that movie, Surrogates?

Why did you use a white background? :slap I'm kidding, if I ever get around to doing my review, I'm waiting on my terminator. I want to show him in 3 different kinds of light but yeah man the movie was shot in the dark. I got some halloween low lights I'm going to use for a option as that's how I will display him, in low light not really bright light.

I always use a white background. That's my background and I'm sticking to it haha.

Absolutely not.


I kinda forget at times that I still have the chair version on order. I think someone said february the UK gets it. Laughable.


I have one. It's a nice display piece, but it's not essential.

And that's my 8000th post. In about 4 1/2 months of active posting. I need to take a shower. Then get a life. :monkey1


Agreed! Waste of 100.00 extra bucks.

Thanks guys. I guess that's why the price keeps dropping on that set. Maybe it'll end up in the SS bargain bin some day.

Thanks, Yank! There's a couple classic poses I wish I'd gotten that I didn't think of until after, unfortunately.

So, who's down for the battle-damaged edition? This figure is very nice, but I'm not yet sold and spending another $300 to own effectively the same figure twice.

I'm in for the 2 pack Murphy and BD Robo. I think all three figures are gonna look fantastic together. I don't have Ed though, so that pack will make up for it :lol
