I love that NECA saw fit to release an homage to the vintage Night Fighter Robocop from the Robocop and the Ultra Police toy line from Kenner. Still, I found it a tad disappointing that, most likely due to budgetary reasons, they couldn’t fully make him resemble the original figure. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, and with the release of the new Robocop movie this week, I figured it was time. I went through and painted all the metallic blue highlights on the figure, as well as painting the face up, and painting the visor red. Using some fodder, I fashioned a futuristic looking minigun and attached it to his arm. I also made it detachable, so it can still be interchanged with his other two hands (Auto-9 pistol holding hand, and the data spike hand). And of course the figure still glows in the dark, fully rounding out the homage to the vintage Night Fighter Robocop. Because only in the 80′s did “Night Fighter” mean “glowing bright green”. So now Robocop is ready to bust up some creeps in the dead of night. I’d buy that for a dollar!

I created an account on here just to tell you how phenomenal this looks. Had this been NECA's figure I would have had to buy one when it was released. I ended up ordering one from Amazon to try my hand out at customizing.. I think I'm going to use the RoboCop 3 deluxe for the gun arm. Keep up the fantastic work!!

Hi, I been lurking around this site on and off for a while but this custom made me sign up so I could ask some stuff. First of all it looks awesome. I own all the NECA RoboCops and while I do love this glow in the dark figure I've been wanting to have a go at customising it to look more like the original Night Fighter and now seeing how cool your version looks I want to do so even more. Also, bizarrely enough even though I don't tend to just own random weapons and accessories for figures I DO actually have that gun you're using as the mini-gun-arm. I was given it by a staff member in a charity shop for free as they couldn't sell it and thought I might like it for some reason. Weird. Anyways, while I'm alright with paints, I haven't done much actual customising so may I ask your advice on how you went about making that gun accessory into the gun arm and how it attaches? Do I need some tools? Also just out of curiosity, do you have any idea where that gun originally comes from? I've just always wanted to know since I was given it. :P Anyways great custom and really completes that figure.

Hi there. If you want it to be removable and interchangeable with the other hands, then you will need some tools. A dremel with plenty of different bits is invaluable to the customizer, and is what I used to make this gun arm work. I don't know where this came from originally...I think it came with some really cheap army figure or something I found at Toys R Us but I can't fully remember.
