It’s time, once again, to play a bit of gallery catch up. Today I’m taking a look at the MAFEX Robocop 3 Figure from Medicom Toys. They have previously released figures based on both the original Robocop, and Robocop 2. In the third film, OCP begins forcing citizens out of Old Detroit to make way for the development of Delta City. They employee a group of armed soldiers to bully residents until they leave. After the death of his partner, Officer Lewis, Robocop joins the citizen resistance and is badly damaged. With the help of one of the scientists that created him, Robocop is restored, the prohibitive fourth directive deleted, and gains a new jetpack and arm mounted canon to aid in his fight.
The film is notable for a few reasons. Peter Weller was replaced by Robert John Burke. The film was directed by Fred Dekker (Night of the Creeps, Monster Squad) and written by comic legend Frank Miller. However, Orion pictures pushed the film to be more kid friendly after the success of the animated Robocop series. this resulted in the removal of the graphic violence seen in the original two films. The film ended up being a commercial and critical disaster, which ultimately led to Robocop being relegated to TV.
Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth provided us with the figure to review. After the jump, check out photos and a quick review.
