    No bullet hole scar on the forehead? He had that in the first movie. Maybe this one is based on the 2nd or 3rd?

    a figure that expensive shouldn't need custom work to look good.

    amen!

    if he was $20 at toys 'r us, OK, but for $100 plus, he should be perfect.

    So now we know he's not "a hundred plus perfect". Can save my money for the GIGN duo now!

    It looks like someone just pooped him out (LOL). I think I'll try the model kit conversion before I think about buying that. They should have kept the helmet on, and a lot more people would still be thinking about getting it.

    HS aside, he's not poseable enough. I'll pass on this one. What can I say, I'm an articulation junkie.

    I wonder if the sculptors only worked from photos of the costume and never actually watched the movie. I'm just guessing, but that headsculpt looks like what Peter Weller might have worn under the helmet for shots when he wasn't going to be seen without the helmet on. I would expect better from HT unless they didn't know any better. I don't really care as long as it looks right with the helmet on, I don't plan on displaying it with it off.

    the sculpt and paintjob on that armor looks pretty crummy as well... very cartoony and lacking in detail imho....

    looks like someone just traced the panel lines with a marker....

    Hi guys,

    I just saw this Robocop figure at Malaysian local toy shop xl-shop.

    Detail pictures in its forum website

    http://www.xltoysforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=2580

    Overall it looks very nice.

    Hmm... Nothing special except the thigh-holster.
    Anyway, there's still Robocop 3.

    those new pics are a lot better.... he would be a great figure if he was under $35 but at the price they are selling him for he's a total ripoff...

    How is the articulation on the McFarlane Robo? Does that one look better under the helmet?

    the mcfarlane one has surprisingly good articulation not much less than the hot toys one as far as i can tell.... the helmet on the mcfarlane one isn't removeable...

    i went to a local toy shop and almost bought this figure...i have been waiting a long time to see it in person...sadly i was dissapointed...i mean i thought this figure should be very articulated...from the way it was presented, it looked like it couldn't bend its knees and legs more than 30 degrees, so all that possible bending options are off the list...! Still, there was already a hungry customer laying his eyes on it while i was holding the box, so i handed it to him and said, "u wanna it, just go for it.
    " and he decided to grab this figure...it was good...but just the fact that lack of articulation really made this darn too expensive....instead, i chose to buy the GIGN Operator figure, and it looked awsome!!! finally got the figure and he looks 90% like Christian Bale...if time permits, i could finally do a batman bash on this figure!!!

    just one more quick suggestion for future 12 inch action figure to add more play value:


    They could add those good old-fashioned sound bites in the 12 inch action figure toys...But the trick this time is...the sound bites would only be activated if you correctly strike the proper move based on a scene in the movie itself...Therefore each sound bite would be correlated with its proper activation move...
    Ex. Robocop The movie- classic 3/4 view of Robocop pointing his gun at a criminal, saying, "Dead or alive, you're coming with me!"

    or with his head twisting opposed to where his body is pointing at: "Call me Murphy"

    Well if the price is around $65USD then it's reasonable.... at around $130 it's too expensive considering the figure does not come with much accessories and removable parts

    Yes, articulation is horrible. Overall, definitely not worth $130. No wonder they stopped production.

    I haven't even handled one, but you can see the artic. is limited.
    That's always a "NO GO" for me.
