Gentle Giant has announced a statue based on one of the robots from Neil Blomkamp’s upcoming film; Chappie. The film will tell the story of an self aware robot who learns what it is to be alive, and all the happiness and harshness that comes with that life.

“In the midst of rising crime and losses among the Royal South African Police, TetraVaal has introduced the successful SCOUT program to combat the deadly criminal elements that operate throughout the country.
Since the introduction of the Scouts, crime has plummeted, the police are safer and TetraVaal stock is at an all-time high.

Scout 22 is one of hundreds of robots that patrol Johannesburg, assisting the RSAP with high risk assignments that would otherwise be too deadly for their human counterparts to engage in.
