The original movie was one of those classic films from my childhood, so I have fond memories of it. I was a little sceptical about a remake (I usually hate remakes, just think of something new Hollywood) but after seeing the trailer I have a feeling this film will be quite entertaining. I'm not saying it will be brilliant or even better than the original, but I think it'll be good. And, I'm also liking the new design of Robo. Even though it has "Ironman" written all over it.
We will see what it brings in a few months. That will be my deciding factor as to whether I want a figure of not.
