Description
Building a foam original 1987 Robocop.
Should have a working gun holder (Opening leg)

**Update: Due to visibility, I will not be taking anymore time creating the opening leg. I tried the full suite on and I can not operate or see my leg :(

I will be premièring this cosplay at London Comic-con October 2014.

**Update: 11.09.2014

RoboCop has been entered into the Sunday Masquerade (26.10.2014) Must get him finished!!!!!!! WISH ME LUCK!

**THIS IS THE 1987 RoboCop**** That is why I have chosen a metallic Aluminium paint. In Robocop 2 etc he is more blue.

I’m in awe of your foam armour skills and look forward to seeing it painted.

As I live in the Channel Islands I can only make it over once a year :( due to costs and transport of my cosplays. So not this year... but I may take him next year!

I hope you have a handler for getting around (and for carrying around an MP3 player full of sound effects!)

Here is a unboxing 1st look at my Auto 9 resin film replica gun from the RoboCop franchise.

Product Description
This is a full scale 1:1 reproduction using the industry’s highest quality resin. Total weight 800g Overall dimensions 12 in by 6 in
