Maybe This 1/4 Scale Robocop Figure Is Too Realistic

Illustration for article titled Maybe This 1/4 Scale Robocop Figure Is Too Realistic

If the recent RoboCop remake has made you extra nostalgic for the original films, this 1:4-scale figure should provide you with all of the fond memories you need. In fact, with 30 points of articulation, and a face painted with a multi-layer technique that even shows veins beneath the skin, from a distance you might just mistake it for the real thing.

Unfortunately, that also means that up close this thing is a little on the creepy side. Those who demand authenticity in their collectibles will love it, but the rest of us will probably find RoboCop's dead stare a little unnerving. Thankfully, his face can be swapped out with one of three alternates each with a different expression. (Somber, less somber, and a different kind of somber?)

This figure even includes remote control features like a turning head, authentic sound effects and lines from the movie, and a gun holster that appears to automatically open and close on its own.


And if you're wondering why this version of RoboCop looks nothing like Peter Weller, it's because it's—for some reason—based on the character from RoboCop 3 which starred Robert John Burke instead. So if you're one of the three people who didn't mind that second sequel, you might be able to justify dropping just shy of $1,000 on this collectible. Myself? I'd buy that for a dollar.
