Robocop (2014) Toy Line Reveals Use Of Original Movie Suit
Jose Padihla provided exclusive footage of the new Robocop movie at Comic-Con where it was reported that Michael Keaton's character turned down a silver look for Joel Kinnaman's suit in favor of the black version which has been featured in a plethora of set images.
Turns out those reports coming out of Comic-Con are apparently accurate as toy designs featuring the original 1987 Robocop suit have surfaced online.
The Spanish toy site Kanpekisetto.com has merchandise images online that include a variety of designs where we see the original Robocop suit, one in-between, and the final black version.
It was also previously thought that the new black Robocop suit was to feature added CGI effects, but from the looks of the toy that doesn't seem to be the case. It's possible the CG effects could be related to the visor and the gun being stored inside the hip (accessories). At one point it was even said Robocop transforms into vehicle-mode, but that hasn't been confirmed as well.
You can also check out a pic of the Robocop motorcycle, and that might be the official logo for the movie to boot.
Bear in mind these could be concept pics and not the final versions of the toy line or 100% accurate to the movie.
