Custom #:34094  
Name:Robocop
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Universe
Creator:shayne907  
Date Added:November 4, 2011
Base Figure:Kotobukiya Robocop
Height:4.00 inches
This is my first post here at figure realm, and I decided to post my favorite sci-fi character. I took a Kotobukiya Robocop model, reworked it to give it all the necessary articulation, made a removable helmet, and gave him removable weapon hands. I included his jetpack and data spike, and added a working leg holster.

Don't watch 3, it will ruin the franchise for you.

this is awesome, the work you put into this is amazing, but makes one spot on robocop (even though I never watched 3).

Thanks for the comments guys. Here is a breakdown on how I did this:


For the articulation, I cut the ball joint necks off of 2 joes, attached them to the shoulder area, and dremeled holes in the arms to join them. For the elbows, knees, and ankles, I took a star wars figure, cut the corresponding joints, dremeled them down, drilled holes into the Robocop model, and fit and glued them in. The waits is a cut joint, and the hips are a V-cut joint from the original model. I kept the head as a peg/cut joint, but I think I may change it to a ball joint so there is more range of motion.

For the holster, I cut the outside of the leg away, giving me two armor panels. I dremeled the inside down and made a cavity for the Auto-9. I glued 2 pegs onto the inside of the front armor panel, and drilled corresponding holes into the front of the leg so the panel slides back and forth. The back panel I just glued a portion back on, and it folds back and forth.

Nice work. You know they show the same movies over and over and over on TV. I haven't seen Robocop in ages.
