NECA announces NES-styled RoboCop figure

Remember NECA's NES Jason figure from SDCC? Well, it was a popular one, so much so that they're giving RoboCop a similar treatment! The NES RoboCop figure is based on the design from the original game by Nihon Busan, and...

On the film and comic license side of things, Square Enix brought plenty of Play Arts Kai with them. The Spock and Kirk Star Trek Into Darkness figures were shown off in their painted forms for the first time, and we saw a few old friends like the two Xenomorph Play Arts Kai and RoboCop -

Wait ... hold the phone. There's more than one RoboCop there. In fact, there's three: the original one we saw at SDCC and both the gray/black and all-black versions from the upcoming reboot. I don't know how I feel about these, especially since RoboCop is a film that doesn't need a reboot ever and the trailer made me feel a bit sad.

Beyond that, the DC Variant line had painted versions of Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Superman at the show, along with Cyborg (who wasn't at SDCC), Batman, and the Supergirl prototype. Plus, throw in their previously released Arkham City, Man of Steel and Dark Knight Play Arts Kais, and you have yourself a pretty good summary of all things DC at Square Enix's booth.

Play Imaginative announces Super Alloy RoboCop photo
Play Imaginative announces Super Alloy RoboCop
by Brian Szabelski

Look, I know RoboCop is a hot property right now. It's an awesome movie and an awesome character. But we RoboFans only have so much money, and Play Imaginative's announcement of a 1/12-scale Super Alloy RoboCop is another thing we'll want when it releases in 2014.

I mean, there's the Hot Toys figure, the Play Arts Kai figure, and who knows what else in the future (I'm looking at you, Sideshow). I don't know how much more RoboMerch I can take, but deep down ... I'm looking forward to seeing what Play Imaginative has done with Robo.

Hot Toys sculptor working on unhelmeted RoboCop head

Hot Toys' RoboCop is an impressive looking figure, but it's missing a little something: an unhelmeted RoboCop, showing off Alex Murphy's face. I'd originally assumed this was due to issues licensing Peter Weller's likeness, b...

[UPDATE] Hot Toys' RoboCop, ED-209 are here photo
[UPDATE] Hot Toys' RoboCop, ED-209 are here
by Brian Szabelski

Seven years ago, Hot Toys released their first 1/6-scale RoboCop figure, and we've known they're working on an improved version for some time ... but I don't think I was prepared for the Movie Masterpiece Diecast Series RoboCop at all. It is a thing of beauty; everything is here, from the fist spike to the pistol to four different, beautiful-looking faces and battle-damaged armor. Again, like the figma, no open-faced figure, but probably for the same reason (unable to get the use of Peter Weller's exact likeness). Better yet, Robo comes with the ability to say sixof his classic phrases from the film, including "Thank you for your cooperation. Goodnight." and "Dead or alive, you are coming with me."

There's also going to be a version that comes with RoboCop's docking chair and will have LED illumination in the chair (which kind of serves as a secondary base for the figure). Both versions are coming in the second quarter of 2014.

I guess Hot Toys must have seen the news about NECA's ED-209, too, because they've also sent out info on their ED-209. Set for a first quarter 2014 release, the hulking robot has been redone as well and features tons of new detail, plus some new articulation, weapons accessories for the arms, and three sound clips of its own. 

Pre-orders should be coming soon ... but looks like I'm getting myself a Hot Toys figure or two next year. Hey, Pedro; is it too late to change my DO WANT pick for the next year or so?

[UPDATE: Pre-orders open! Prices are US$299.99 for RoboCop, US$424.99 for the version with the chair, and US$409.99 for ED-209.]
