@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.
'Robocop' Gets A Brand New Look
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.
@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'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
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.
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.
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.
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.
wait its iron man no its gi joe no its judge dredd, please there's no creativity the original old school is better.
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.
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.
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
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)
