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.

Great progress on this. Will it be ready for LFCC??

Dax79 posted on 26 June, 2014 - 10:37
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!

Ranma1-2 posted on 27 June, 2014 - 22:33
Ahh, ok, I look forward to seeing him finished then. :)

This looks great. Hoping to see the finished article at MCM ComicCon London. We're planning to go on the 26th due to work commitments. It's our first con too.

Dax79 posted on 12 August, 2014 - 11:38
Thanks! It's Coming along nicely! I should be wearing him on the 26th so maybe you will see him! (All depends on what I enter him into) I hope you enjoy your 1st Con!

PandoraCaitiff posted on 7 October, 2014 - 11:20
Fully silvered that looks *amazing*. Hard to beleive it was once foam! I hope you have a handler for getting around (and for carrying around an MP3 player full of sound effects!)

Dax79 posted on 7 October, 2014 - 22:31
Thanks! I just have a few washers and a screw here and there to add, but he's done :) I do have some friends with me and I hope I get about ok... I have entered him into the masquerade (Still waiting for reply) so I hope I don't lose a oil cap or wing nut in the MCM!!

Namine posted on 12 October, 2014 - 03:03

He looks really good now, slightly worn in areas since the Con but he's in good nick so he will return to the convention floors :) I'm glad people like this EVA foam build and I hope you like my next EVA project! Thanks for all the kind words!

A full day in foam... no toilet break... could have been worse, couldn't it?

Ah yes me and my girlfriend did stand next to you in the Masquerade queue! I think my gf helped hold a straw whilst you had a drink X3 that was our claim to fame to the winner!
