For me, one of the greatest character designs in movie history was Robocop. Long before Iron Man was a blip on the Hollywood radar, Robocop was the armored hero that captured my imagination. Robocop had this retro futuristic look that reminded me of all the airbrushed robot art that was the rage in the mid to late 80’s. As a kid, his bulky silver and black armor reminded me of a human Transformer. The rigid movements combined with the audible gears shifting, and his booming voice felt like a cartoon come to life. Well, an ultra violent cartoon that is. But that impression has lasted decades, and it has made Robocop one of the few characters I’ll buy in nearly any scale (so long as I think the collectible looks good).
Hiya Toys has offered a pretty large slate of Robocop figures. They have released standard figures, battle damaged versions, and additional variants based on the three original films. The first assortment of figures has begun to hit retail. Today we’re taking a look at the standard editions of Robocop from the first two films. We grabbed these figures from Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth. After the jump, you can see review and gallery for both figures.
