****ing diecast.

Chintzy sound effects.

Really? All because of the idiots who go "oh, wow, it's so nice and heavy - that's quality you know!". Yeah, so nice and heavy when it falls over it'll take out every glass shelf on the way down.

A pox on the morons who think diecast is great, and a pox on HT for catering to their demented whims.

Does that leave anyone in doubt as to my opinions on diecast?




Great looking figure though! Really liking the look of this a LOT! Damned diecast ruins it though.

I have been waiting for their Robocop. But with that spec, I expect the price will take us right through to $350 if not more...

And by the looks of it, they will make another version with the chair and Murphy's head later and call it a DX. But that one will probably be more like $400... :p

Time to bail on buying these expensive toys. Cannot justify spending this much on a figure anymore...

Yup, and it'll undoubtedly be playing through a 10c piezoelectric speaker, so it doesn't even sound half decent.

This and diecast. Gimmicky nonsense.

Well said :clap i hope this die cast phase ends soon. As soon as the figures start coming out and the complaints start i think they'll drop it.

I also think that chair looks way too fragile to support a heavy die cast figure long term

The price would be the deciding factor for me, personally, though the target release date is enough to save some $$$ for this. I think this Robocop really looks great. There might be a real BD version that I'm sure would rock, but this would be enough for me to represent the icon that is Robocop, die-cast or not.

I wish they stopped at die-cast, though, even if I think that this would look as great with standard plastic given a good paintjob that's HT standard anyway. The rest of the features are things we don't need -- sounds and costly remote system, and would only up the price for sure.

After the first run through, hardly anyone will use it. I can almost guarantee it will have exceedingly limited volume, and it will sound thin, and like it's being spoken from inside a tin can.

I'll be glad to be proven wrong, but I bet I'm not.

Edit: Oh, and you've got to have holes, for the sound. Where are they going to put them that doesn't detract from the figure? Why would I want a cheap gimmick that detracts from my figure anyway?

I don't know what to say about this really.. :lol

I've been HANGING for this figure announcement - hanging. I was thinking to myself - finally, a new release on the way with hopefully all the bases covered. It's not what I've been hoping for though to be honest..

In short - I think Mr Walker's said it all pretty much. For me - the die-cast thing is a cool idea when incorporated tastefully, but it seems they're going to town with it now - & it adds to the cost unnecessarily. That said - I just got the Tamashii 3PO, but I bet if it was plastic, it wouldn't have cost me $330. :lol

Sound effects - WHY?????????? :slap :gah: :cuckoo:

Stupid idea.

Stupid.

Idea.

Disappointing that they couldn't deliver a Weller sculpt on top of all that.

It's awesome to see all this newness - but.. it's bittersweet. :huh :(

I just hope there's another one coming WITH the Weller face, & no sound effects. Yeah.. :lol

Bought for sure, pricing doesn't seem too bad taking into account their current sliding scale! So looking at around $360 with chair and $235 without chair, so add a smidge to that and should be a pretty good indication of what SSC and the likes will have these up for.

I also smell a full on battle damaged version with Murphy sculpt later on down the line, possible an SDCC exclusive? :dunno:

I do not think that is the case, as EB already shown pictures of their 1/4 with a full Murphy face, masked removed.

Probably HT is gonna do another version or some special edition later, knowing we all wanted that.

They are usually 50 dollars more in the US and 70-90 dollars more in Europe compared to the HK retail price.

Our local dealer just posted the one with chair for $420. I think it's a safe bet that the one without would be up for PO for $280-300.

EDIT: ED 209 just went up for PO for $400.

Likeness rights or not, the exposed part of the face on the toy looks dead on.

In fact, everything looks dead on! It's freaking gorgeous!! Those comparison pictures to the original HT show what a weak effort that figure was, even at the time. I remember looking at that soft-sculpted bobble-head thing and wondering why people were willing to pay such a premium for it. It looked bad before....comparing it to the new one makes it look like a Mexican bootleg!!

It's gonna be damn hard to resist this one. It's even got the movie-accurate battle-damage. Just missing one crucial ingredient, the Murphy reveal head...but even without it...it's tempting. And I love the fact that we have the option of skipping the completely useless chair.

ED looks amazing too....and it's a damn good thing NECA is making one that's smaller and cheaper, so I'm not even tempted by the HT one. It's simply too big and would take up far too much room in an already crowded display. Still looks freaking gorgeous though!

Looks great. Agreed with folks saying the die cast is an unnecessary addition to the cost, and the sound effects actually bring the whole product down in my eyes. That kind of cheap gimmickry is suited to mass retail Hasbro or NECA figures, not high end collectibles. What's next, "action punch" features? Aliens that squirt water out of their mouths? Spring loaded rocket launchers? I guess we should have seen this coming with the translucent plastic and light up stuff though.

Can we add to that list a possible DX Christopher Reeve Superman with "large S-shield cellophane wrap weapon"?

But yeah, I get your point. This looks amazing, but could have been about $80 cheaper without die-cast and sounds. Problem is, those are unnecessary yet costly things that I might swallow.

This is their best-looking figure since '89 Keaton Batman. When I first pulled up Hot Toys page I thought I was looking at a movie still. He's really good.

I figured they'd go diecast with him after the iron men did and we hadn't heard anything on this figure in so long. My biggest fear with robocop was that he'd have that frail, hollow feeling of the older iron man figures, so I for one welcome die cast.

I'm surprised they didn't give us an unmasked head sculpt, and that they're making the chair optional. Based on shelf space and cost, I'll likely get the version sans chair.

See.. to me, it makes more sense going die-cast with the Iron Man stuff because of all those little fiddly fragile pieces on them.

Murphy - on the other hand, isn't constructed that way, so I'd have been happy if they'd not bothered with it at all.

What a nice surprise! I know this figure won't be out till next year, but I assumed HT had forgotten about releasing this figure with all the current ongoing projects. It's a real treat to see thier latest efforts on pics, simply amazing!:clap

I am not really into diecast figures, but I feel this was a very appropriate choice for this figure. As shown on the pics, it will look amazing under the light with all the reflections on his body looking more like steel just like the movie did. Hopefully it won't chip easily, that's my only concern.
I'm getting this version for sure, it would be nice to have the mechanical chair, but it's not a must-have for me. I'd rather save the money towards getting Cain(I'm waiting!).

Repeating it across all 3 so ignore the repeat.


Robocop: $235
Robocop with chair: $360
ED-209: $325


Yes..that is $100 more for the chair. Toy Hunter has confirmed that the price difference is because of the chair alone. Looks like I'll be just picking this figure up by itself along with ED-209.

Which look dead-on to Weller IMO. Really I wasn't expecting to see a full Weller head so I'm not too let-down there. Everything else just looks staggeringly good. The real metallic look, the posing, the proportions. The pics I think are some of Hot Toys best, they really nailed actual movie poses here.

Love this pic.
Amazing how they regenerated all the movie accurate damages, even his shattered visor with his left eye showing.

I am pretty sure HT's could not Peter Weller's likeness because we would have seen it on NECA products years ago. This is a hard one…the figure looks great but unfortunately not complete. This is kind of like if we were getting the P1 or P2 Predator and their mask did not come off.
I would have been more inclined to make this purchase if Murphy's head was included regardless of the price. Right now I am looking at the cost and seeing what is not there. Overall great looking figure…..

Which look dead-on to Weller IMO. Really I wasn't expecting to see a full Weller head so I'm not too let-down there. Everything else just looks staggeringly good. The real metallic look, the posing, the proportions. The pics I think are some of Hot Toys best, they really nailed actual movie poses here.

Yep, and it makes me bummed out a bit about the DX12 faceplates.

Here's the pricing to those wondering.
Repeating it across all 3 so ignore the repeat.


Robocop: $235
Robocop with chair: $360
ED-209: $325


Yes..that is $100 more for the chair. Toy Hunter has confirmed that the price difference is because of the chair alone. Looks like I'll be just picking this figure up by itself along with ED-209.



wow. i was expecting the $300 for figure only like the iron man since it's die cast.

Everyone complaining about the sound effects. I don't get it. I say bring on more features. You guys are all expecting it to sound like crap... maybe it will, but eventually it won't. As the technology gets better Im sure the value of such a feature will rise. I for one say bring it on! It doesnt seem to have affected the price as the figure costs ($230) more or less what I expected this to cost. Plue its remote controlled! That means that you can activate the feature without messing with the figure. That's pretty cool imo.

It's a direct conversion of the HK prices and I believe those are actually a bit lower than what we will get here in the states from retailers such as Sideshow. Correct me if I'm mistaken.

So just bump up those prices by a little and you get the retailer price.

I've mentioned this in the other Robocop thread, but I'm wondering if HT would be willing to go and try to get the license to use Robert Burke's likeliness on the figure instead. Since it's been said that Weller doesn't allow his face to be used on toys, I'd be more than happy with a representation of Burke.

Is there a certain percentage where it suddenly becomes the actor? Because even though it has the visor I'd say that's straight Weller. Hopefully they don't end up being required to alter it.

I open up Facebook this morning and get an eyeful of Robocop. I like the variety, and I don't mind that it's stuff I don't need to buy. I'll enjoy everyone's photos instead.

Agreed. I dig RoboCop but don't think I need a figure. But I'm happy to see something outside IM , Batman and Avengers.

Even if it is a re-release. Although it has been altered.

Sorry to hear that.

The only thing I see that this is not though is a full-on BD Robocop. But there, in addition to the full Weller head, you'd be talking about BD not just to the chest piece but arms, legs and midsection aswell.

Primarily this makes an incredible super-realistic clean Robocop, leaps and bounds beyond what the old one was.

Next to the figures, that's the best news yet! 100% in for ED and Robo... but no interest in the chair. It's definitely cool, but nothing I'd feel the need to own or display.

One member joked around saying he ordered the exclusive and then the rumor spread around like wild fire. There is no exclusive....yet.

Wasn't me. :rolleyes:

The talking feature is stupid- brings it closer to a kiddie Mattel toy

Thats one ****ing amazingly realistic looking Mattel toy.

Hot Toys. Diecast metal. 100% sculpted from scratch. Still $15 less than SSC Vader. :cool:


A sad point... He is a bit light on accessories though; but I honestly figured he'd be in the $300 ballpark.



We can't tell just yet, guys. Those are PO prices from HK. Toy Sapiens prices tend to be closer to SSC prices.

But yeah, since there are too much figures I want but I don't want to go all-out on the budget, Vader's gotta give. Even if Robo ends up having a higher pricetag IMO this is the figure that's worthy of a slot in my budget -- as far as accuracy and over-all quality regardless of accessories, this would surely be pure happiness out of the box and on to the shelf compared to SSC's Vader.

I normally hate sound chips, but as long as it's truly Weller's lines from the movie I'm looking forward to it.

Oh man, if it somehow turns out to be just some HT employee reading those lines... :lol :duh

The Hasbro AT-AT walker pissed me off on the sound front. For some reason they didn't use the actual movie recordings as they had done on the 1997 walker. Instead they used a bunch of crappy CloneWars-esque stuff.

I doubt HT will go wrong here though.

One of the Masterpiece Primes recorded new, pseudo-Peter Cullen versions of classic lines (that Hasbro had the sense to put into a base instead of the actual figure, by the way). There is a precedent.
