'Robocop' Gets A Brand New Look

#51 Posted by SuperDoahBoy (144 posts) - - Show Bio

@Bogey: Creating something new is a lot more difficult in this day and age than you think, not to mention functional cause I'm sure they had a couple of designs that looked good but just wasn't able to work in the direction they were going. That being said I would love to be proven wrong with your or anybody else designs.

Looks like he underwent the Dredd treatment; Judge Robo :)

Exactly what I was thinking but this is gonna suck. Why would they turn a remake into a copy of another movie that's not even out yet?

I reserve my judgment except to say at the moment He doesn't look as cool as the original.

Creativity are dead in movies

I would love to see your NEW designs or read that ORIGINAL script that you've been sitting on, cause I'm getting tired of this online BANDWAGONING of people talking about Hollywood's lack of creativity as if its so easy cause they have a stack of fresh scripts and ideas they are waiting for one of the studios to pick up.

I like the new design, however I'm sure that it will most likely have things added to it in post production. I'm voting that that make it a shiny black finish.

now this robocop looks badass.

I really don't think it looks that bad.

Congratulations Hollywood. You just ruined all films everywhere.

looks like someones hand gonna get shot off again

#62 Posted by jumpstart55 (2728 posts) - - Show Bio

looks awesome!!!!

The original looked kinda corny.

#63 Posted by kennybaese (1213 posts) - - Show Bio

@SuperDoahBoy: Fair enough. It still is weird to me that the design is such a departure. That's not to say it looks bad, necessarily, but the original Robocop design is so iconic that this much of a change from that character design is strange.

I'll buy that for a dollar

Nicely done. XD

I'm not looking forward to this as I wish they'd stop redoing movies from the 80s/90s *Sigh* That being said, seeing as I loved the first one I will see it in theaters for $5.

Well...I like how the police car and bikes look. Still out on suit thing though.

#67 Posted by Meteorite (3479 posts) - - Show Bio

So is this a reboot, or a new film in the series?

#68 Posted by Guardiandevil83 (7355 posts) - - Show Bio

Not Robocop to me. That being sad. If I were to become a vigilante I would soooo like a get up like that!!

#69 Edited by feargalr (1242 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm disappointed by this, robocops old look was so iconic, this is just bland and a bit dull. But I'll wait and reserve judgement until I see the movie.

Like realistically speaking who here would look at that picture and recognise that as Robocop without being told? Fair enough redo the costume, but they could have kept some of the iconic elements of it

#70 Posted by ZZoMBiE13 (1022 posts) - - Show Bio

I didn't know they were making a Crysis movie! Sweet!

Wait... that's supposed to be Robocop???

#71 Posted by henryarguelles5 (375 posts) - - Show Bio

I love the original look...but let's be honest: most of us on here have seen far too much sci-fi or played too many video games to expect a cyborg built from bleeding-edge technology to be some jerky machine that can't even jump. I think the new look is badass.

Still needs more chrome though.

#72 Posted by LoganRogue24 (1314 posts) - - Show Bio

not a fan of the new suit.

#73 Posted by DMC (2004 posts) - - Show Bio

hmm.....wasn't expecting the original suit anyway so I'll give it a chance.

#74 Posted by Vincie_Pooh (118 posts) - - Show Bio

He better have a gun like the OG Robo. If he has like blasters or some transforming gun that change's his arm to a gun/cannon. Hmmm. I loved the original gun from Robocop. Hmmm i don't know about this suit.

#75 Posted by Kal'smahboi (3832 posts) - - Show Bio

Does that look like they painted Superman's new armor black to anyone else?

#76 Posted by Shadowolfstar (16 posts) - - Show Bio

This does not look good. Im beginning to wonder if he shouldve stayed in the eighties.

#77 Posted by Dude4 (117 posts) - - Show Bio

With one look at the original suit you knew he was a cyborg from first glance. It made you feel sorry for the human buried underneath all the metal/circuitry and his loss of humanity.

On the other hand, this looks like a space marine/armored vigilante's suit that could be taken off at any time. If you hadn't told me that he was a cyborg I would have never known.

#78 Posted by ssejllenrad (13028 posts) - - Show Bio

I like it. The original is much better, of course. But I'm willing to go with this new look. If it is a reboot/revisioning, I don't really see anything bad in designing a different look for Robocop.

People hating on it need to have an open mind on things and stop having nostalgia dictate your tastes.

#79 Posted by Dude4 (117 posts) - - Show Bio

Question: Why is he wearing a motorcycle helmet on top of his regular helmet in the pictures of him on a bike? That's a bit redundant.

Is he trying to be incognito or something?

#80 Posted by RoTheKid (259 posts) - - Show Bio

Eeeh...admittedly, I'm hesitant, but I guess we'll have to wait and see!

#81 Posted by LaserLambert (641 posts) - - Show Bio

Could be worse!

#82 Posted by abeyance (261 posts) - - Show Bio

wow I really like how the suit looks, but I don't get the cyborg feel from it. He looks like a guy in a powersuit. That's not going to stop me from watching the movie. I guess they're doing this so robocop can be more mobile instead of being a slow walking tank like the originally trilogy. It's hard to be the ultimate crime fighting unit with the reaction speed of a slug. The new sleek look will definitely be a plus during action scenes.

Soooo lame

#84 Edited by neiliusprime (284 posts) - - Show Bio

so.........Iron Man's armor and Nolan's Batman armor had a baby....

But if they threw in some silver on the armor, then I would like it.

No it's Master Chief from Halo... no wait, you're right it is GI Joe. No wait it IS Judge Dredd. Oh, wait no it's just lame. Haha! I like the original way better too.

I miss the original visor helmet but I understand since it is not practical.

#89 Posted by TheBigRedCheese (383 posts) - - Show Bio

Not bad. Reminds me of a suit I would see in a game similar to Mass Effect. If it wasn't for the title telling me this is a new Robocop I wouldn't have known who that guy was suppose to be. I think they could have created a modern suit that resembled the 87' version a bit more though. Just my opinion.

#90 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6958 posts) - - Show Bio

I just prefer the original myself but I'll be open to this. Better black than something else I say.

#91 Posted by Poncho (64 posts) - - Show Bio

he looks like one of the villian's foot soldiers a action hero would fight in another movie. whatever, maybe it will look significant in motion.

#92 Posted by Teerack (9589 posts) - - Show Bio

Let's remake everything form the 80's, because NO one can remember the 80's, amirite?

#93 Posted by Colonial825 (3 posts) - - Show Bio

I guess I'd be okay with it - not gonna let something like this stop me from watching it, but I think maybe they should have kept some familiarity with the older version, maybe the same color pattern.

I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, Red97.com

Looks like a cross between Batman and Iron Man.. I am not sure I like this.

#99 Posted by perry_411 (453 posts) - - Show Bio

More important than the look is the commercials mocking foreign policy, environmental repercussions. It's like the writer/director made a conservative superhero while mocking traditional conservative policy. (Nuke'Em, Sunblock 3000)
