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.

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!

X3 you were great to chat to and have a laugh with whilst we all waited to go on stage and your Robocop cosplay was superb! -^^- we were super impressed and you were a well deserved winner!
