Oh Kickstarter, it loks like you have been responsible for something wonderful…
Paul Verhoeven’s iconic movie may be 25 years old, but it looks like the character of Alex Murphy, AKA Robocop, is just as popular today as the day he first spun the Auto-9mm on his finger for the first time.
According to /film: The RoboCop statue has been in the works for a couple of years now, having raised money on Kickstarter after the mayor originally shot down the idea. (Understandably, since the city has more important things to spend its budget on right now.) The photo below isn’t of the completed statue — the 10-foot figure still needs to be cast in bronze — but it’s “basically how the final product will look”.

The statue still hasn’t settled on an exact location, but wherever it ends up it looks like a fitting tribute to Detroit’s favorite protector.
