Robocop is one of the finest movies ever made and to say it was only a cool fun 80s movie is really an insult but your opinion no less.

Nearly 30 years on and it would not look out of place in todays environment in fact it has an almost 100% reference to todays world as it did to the world back in the eighties.

A timeless classic from top to bottom, start to finish. I'm sorry but the remake will not even grace the original on any level.

:goodpost: Well put nuff said.

People that understand the history of the original film properly - & it's legacy, get why this remake is utterly useless.

There's simply no substantial point to it's existence - other than being a vehicle for revenue. :lol

:exactly: Right again, i mean the crappy sequels and tv show already proved that the original cannot be outdone.

I mean so much was achieved with the original despite a foreign director and low budget, they didnt have million dollar cgi effects back then.

I was younger back then but I actually liked the short-lived TV series w/ Richard Eden and Yvette Nipar (Madigan was so hot!). I remember Pudface Morgan being the first baddie and then there was an episode I think with Commander Cash or some "superhero" that I really liked. The opening theme song was catchy too! :yess:

Never said it wasn't bad or cheesy, just said it was something I watched in my earlier years that I enjoyed. Nothing wrong with that I don't think since everyone has their favorites and dislikes. I know people who thought Power Rangers or Lois and Clark was crappy and childish but I enjoyed those and I was in my early 20s then. :yess: To each their own I guess.

Bloody hell, I don't even remember any of that... it really must've been that bad... LOL

I seem to only remember the 1st episode and the Commander Cash one. I guess I enjoyed the series due to the nostalgia of the movie, but the show was clearly aimed at a PG audience of kids.

Yeah near the middle one of murphy's old cop pals from his past gets murdered and made into unit 2 against his will.
They give him a dual targeting system so he can use 2 guns, he also sports a cooler black suit.

Near the end him and robo team up and have awesome shoot-out against the bad guys.
Yes unfortunately the show doesn't get good till the end but the 1st half of PD is so bad it's hard to sit through. :slap

^^^ Oh, I think I remember seeing parts of Prime Directive once on TV because I remember an "evil" Robocop, but never saw the whole thing. The show I was thinking about was the 94-95 series which was separate from Prime Directive, which came years after I think. Nevertheless, the former only got 1 season and I only heard poor reviews of Prime Directive so I guess they failed in expanding the Robocop franchise beyond the films. I liked the concept and idea for Robocop 3 but I didn't enjoy it much, also probably because they went the PG-13 route, plus Robert Burke couldn't fill Peter Weller's shoes, I mean who could?

What you've reiterated unnecessarily, implies these things were hindrances, or stumbling blocks - hence me calling you out on using the word -> 'despite'. There's no despite.

Having a foreign director for example, was an absolute advantage to the film's success. Tastefully used practical effects etc, shored up the foundations further.

if you see a dog crap on a road, don't judge dog's master for leaving crap where people walk, taste it first. that dog could have eaten a nice big stake right before, you might like the remake.

Hmm... It could be a service dog accompanying a person who is not blessed with sight!.... Again, dont judge too fast. Life will teach you a lot of things. I would say "kiddo" but like i said wont judge ;)

I cancelled ed the other day. 400 bucks plus is way tooo much for it... Added some extra and jumped on the custom figure band wagon, while the figure is from a different movie i felt the money was better spent there. Plus will be my first custom order!!! .... Keeping robo though, obvioulsy!

When Enterbay cancelled their 1/4 Endosekeleton, does it mean EB can't do a 1/4 because HT already beat them to the release date?

If so, does it mean we won't see a HT 1/4 Robocop?

DeadLeaves
11-25-2013, 04:38 AM
I think it all depends on the details of the license, and the market for said products.

If it's viable (profitable) and they have a license to produce, either company could double up... But, most of the time a license holder will sell it to the highest bidder, they (the winning company) get exclusive rights.

All these negotiations are "commercial in confidence" so the public will never know the details.

So, in short - :dunno

Leon 911
11-25-2013, 06:55 AM
To me what it looks like is hot toys wont do a 1/4 and enterbay wont do a 1/6 on this one. At least not at the same time or in quick succession. Hot toys snatches the 1/6 license pretty quick and enterbay is usually cornered into the 1/4. They can always still do but may not make business since. Not many people buy 1/6 and 1/4 both.

I'm tempted to get the EB Robo if the price is right. The frequent QC issues EB's known for is making me think twice though. Was hoping HT would be releasing their own 1/4 Robo to compare the two before deciding which one to pick.

Too bad we didn't get to see the 1/4 Endo EB's working on. Having more than one to choose from would be a win/win for collectors.

Gakken85

Yup. It was too big. haha.

I'm not sure why it is... but people sometimes equate bigger with better, especially in toy collecting. You see it in Transformers, and Super Robots all the time. "ZOMG it's so biggg!" Like that crappy Metroplex that people kept saying, "Oh it's a largest transformer ever! It's 2 foot!" Great.. it's 2 feet of cheap plastic.

Meh.
Bigger means it just takes up more space and costs more to ship, plus it's out of scale with everything else I collect. Then you gotta think about storing this massive box, and keeping dust off the thing as it probably won't fit in your display case.

I understand if it's that one character that you love, and you want a center piece or something, but smaller is always better in my mind.

Anyway, I'm excited for the 1/6th scale Robocop. I bet EB cancelled their because it wasn't financially doable. Just too many Robocop products for a small market.

Basically your words I put on bold is the same with most people I know who don't dig Quarter Scale figures, and it all sums up to EACH HIS OWN. Yes, bigger doesn't mean better because "better" is subjective. Objectively speaking, there are undeniable proofs that SOMETIMES 1/4 is better compared to its 1/6 counterpart -- case in point EB's Batman Begins compared to all 3 attempts of HT on the Begins suit, and HT's QS001 compared to their own DX12.

I am mainly a 1/6th collector, but I love my 1/4s as they add variety. I would have had a problem if I display my figures on a diorama, but since they're all displayed museum-style, 1/4 T800 became the centerpiece of my Terminator collection as is my EB Bats to my Batman collection.

I got this HT Robo on PO, and I'm waiting for EB to announce the cost of their 1/4. Surely would be great to have both.

1/4 shouldn't have poseable action figures. The original action figure wasn't jumbo sized like a clunky kiddie toy, it was GI Joe sized. 12 inches. 1/6 scale. They're the reason we're on these message boards.

1/4 detailed premium formats and statues are cool, but once you throw in joints, articulation swappable/moveable points? No bueno.

Thats an interesting opinion but you cant deny that the best likenesses so far have come from 1/4 figures. I cant tell you why but for some reason the sculpts are amazing.

As cool as 1/4th figs look, I think they're just too big if you're a collector who likes to repose the figs often.

Dur to it's large scale such a fig is hard to handle, at least for me.
And I don't like ratchet joints.

I simply prefer 1/6th scale since for me this scale has the right balance between detail and movability/articulation.

But that is as always very personal and personal tastes differ... ;)

I just hope the MMS Robo won't have ratchet joints as Iron Man Mk42 and Iron Patriot will have...

You'd better hope they do, or the joints will go floppy. Given I never use stands, that would be extremely irritating for me personally.

And I hate ratchet joints myself.

Ratchet Joints are joints that only allow certain positions of a limb.

On a normal figure you can choose every limb position you want, ratchet joints make a clicking sound and you only have certain positions to use.

I think bigger, heavier figures are given ratchet joints to help the limbs support the weight and prevent joint fatigue overtime. I think if my NECA 18" Alien didn't have ratchet joints it wouldn't be able to stand on its own by now.

Yeah, I agree. They want to make more money on a 2nd figure so that's probably why, otherwise this could've been a DX with all those extra goodies! I think it already comes with a BD chest piece and BD helmet, but the new one is supposed to be much more damage after he faced the firing squad of cops. Don't really know what other accessories he could have except for a blood-stained spike or perhaps the cobra assault cannon, maybe some baby food? LOL

A few lines that have to be included are:

''Dead or alive, you're coming with me.''
''Come quietly or there will be... trouble.''
''Serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law''.
''Your move, Creep''.
''Thank you for your co-operation''.

I am afraid of that sound feature!!!

I recently saw a promo vid for NECAs ED209; and although NECA is different for Hot Toys, I am afraid of a poor sound quality.
The sound effect in the NECA video was... bad, to be honest.

I just don't know what's coming from Hot Toys.

Besides, I wonder: what kind of battery will be required?
Where will the battery be inserted?
Will the battery compartment hinder any of the articulation points????

I just can't wait for Robo!

Of course I'm gonna buy it.
And of course it's a toy! ;)

But I just don't need that sound feature.
Besides as I said, I am afraid if it will compromise the articulation of the torso or the figure and if the sound quality will be good or rather bad, with other sounds of the movie still in the samples...

I could accept if the built the battery compartment an a dmall speaker into the left upper leg since there it wouldn't affe t any articulation on the torso.

Like i said my cam didnt pick up the sound very well, it sounds much better in person.
The problem is the sound clips are taken from the movie with the background noise as well as peters voice.
My cam picked up the background noise more so than robocop, so it wasn't as pure as it should be.

At this point in time the Hot Toys pricing is becoming out of hand IMO - which makes adding an extra talking feature seem crazy. They should of scrapped this feature and made the price $30 cheaper.

Blackout
12-27-2013, 01:46 PM
I have no idea why anybody would want a figure that big anyway. 1/6 is big enough. haha.

I totally understand why people would want 1/4 if they have the room for it, but 1/6 is the sweet spot for me. 1/4 is just too big for me.

I have a single 1/4 that I basically view as an indulgence. I got the 1/4 enterbay battle damaged T-800 because that's probably my single favorite movie growing up.

I love it, but it's huge and it will remain the only 1/4 I own. I like 1/6.

Everything in Moderation.

I intentionally pick a limit to my collecting. Carve out a certain category. So I get satisfaction and feel I can participate but don't go broke. LOL
I have Mainly two Hobbies that cost money. Arcade collecting and maintaining and this one. This one is pretty new to me.

For my arcades I collect just early 80's Pre crash arcade games. Say 1979-1982 The classics. I also stay realistic about quantity since space is limited. For this hobby I am limiting myself to one figure from each movie I loved growing up. Say from 1975-1995 (I'm 38). You know the movies that give you that Nostalgic feeling. I haven't decided what to do once say improved versions come out but I'm leaning toward selling and replacing. Same thing I would do if I say found a Nicer Centipede. I would get the new one and sell my old one.

Eisselmann
12-29-2013, 01:56 PM
My guess is that almost all silver parts will be made of metal.
All but parts with movable objects.
Lower legs with pistons, holster flaps and helmet will probably be made of plastic.

The rest could be metal...

I hope not. The more metal you have higher up, the more unsteady it will be on it's feet Higher CoG and all that.

Plus the rest of the shortcomings of crappy diecast.

Plus, if it's heavy and usnteady, it'll take out a DeTolf shelf or case. I can only hope it's someone who's been cheering on the abomination that is diecast.

NECA's ED-209
NECA'S Batman 1989
HT The Crow
HT Robocop & Chair
HT Celtic Predator

SSC General Grievous

I've a few NECA orders myself. I'm getting the EB T-1000, maybe their Robocop, I want to finish off my DX13s (almost there) then its the HT Robocop stuff. Beyond that there appears to be nothing other than waiting for full BD Robocop, Batman Returns, Back to the Future and any more Terminator stuff they might decide to make.

Judging by that I think I should be getting an extended break after the initial HT Robocop stuff (considering that other stuff isn't even at ''getting shown'' stage, let alone preorder stage let alone release). Customs could be the only thing coming out in that period.

Sidious-66
12-30-2013, 12:32 PM

I look forward to a break but then your eye starts to wonder and you start looking at figures you never noticed before and soon your mouse pointer is hovering over that 'buy it now' button. :gah:

It is a slippery slope......

That is still a big haul a-dev and we still know that these companies will have stuff lined up to show off throughout the year.

The way it is going it will be PO the figure one day and get it by the end of the week with HT's brining all these figures forward.

My Supes was second hand and I think there is a little thread loose near the left armpit, nothing major but I just get them gloves on to be safe. I just hope that no one walks in on me wearing a pair of gloves and handling a 12 inch figure. :slap

My DX08 is still fantastic and I had to replace the cowl on my DX09 as the PERS broke but it was worth it. I have the Tony Mei cape (2.5) but I now have a custom cape from a seller in Italy which Batman is currently wearing.

I'll probably get a Tony cape in the next month or so finally, don't know why I've put it off. Luckily my PERs are still find, I just don't mess with them really at all.

My new Supes is fine, just he has two or three creases on his emblem on his back :huh not a biggie for me.

I wonder when this figure will release. I somehow doubt it's going to make it's estimated release of February as we haven't seen anything yet and I think it's a pretty big figure to not get any sort of updates on before release. I haven't ordered mine but am still kind of contemplating whether I want it or not.

After much reluctance due to price, I finally caved in and preordered this guy from Sideshow last week. What figure deserves the die-cast treatment more than this character! He's going to look amazing on the shelf, and I can't wait to get him. I just can't justify the prices for the 1/6 scale market anymore. Sadly, this may be my only HT purchase for 2014. But if I'm going out, it might as well be on a high note with this figure!

Eisselmann
01-13-2014, 02:46 AM

Robo and ED are the only figs I have on PO this year besides the armory, the price of that thing was too good.

But besides that the prices are so ridiculous now and the figures come withe fewer and fewer accessories...
It just doesn't work anymore.

I hope the ED-209 doesn't have that rubber piece that crumbles, waiting to see some reviews on that before I go for it. Pre-ordered the "Chair" version of Robocop though. I must say I find it funny to read all the complaining about various trivial aspects on many different threads, I think it's pretty badass that any company is making figures this cool with spot on accuracy…and of classic characters that I grew up on and love…I think some have lost touch with how lucky we are that companies like Hot Toys/enterbay/sideshow/ect even exist and are making things this freakin awesome. Not tyring to start a debate, just sayin, cheer up to the debbie downers, dry your tears. lol :rotfl

Rerelease of the First Movie and Yes, It's a Big improvement. This is a New Scan of the movie and it's been getting much better Reviews. Comes with a New Interview of the Director. For $7.99 it's way worth it.

01-15-2014, 11:20 AM
at Best Buy last week and it really is worth the 7.99 price. The new bonus features were a nice addition since it had a panel with actors and crew on making the film. The new transfer looks a lot better too as well. Much better release than the Predator blu's considering they are from 1987.

I wonder if they're waiting to see if the film does well or not... they have Prometheus and other projects that seem to have vanished. And even as brilliant as their Mandarin figure looks, not many people bought them because of the film, so perhaps they're waiting to see how it does?

Well, this was the real prototype they were aiming for to evolve into robocop, terminator and several other series. They could not achieve this level of art back then so they had to compromise on the robotic, furniture features and create separate movies and separate characters of robocop, terminator etc...

Been watching the movie since the new blu-ray came out and one thing this figure could have used was a ball joint where the black glove meets the metal arm. Otherwise, this is the most he's going to be able to bend his arm, which isn't going to look right for the spike hand. And the angle he's holding his gun at in the above image is a long way from here:
