the new Robocop suit. the resemblance is uncanny...
here's a problem with the new Robocop costume/suit: The main issue I have with it is that it looks like a suit of armor. The original Robocop didn't look like a guy wearing a suit it looked like a half man/half robot cyborg. There is nothing memorable about it. This is just a Mass Effect, Dark Knight, Iron Man, G.I. Joe ripoff that will either be forgotten after the 2013 movie season or laughed at for years to come.
Now, it looked like The Tick to me...
info on the new Robocop movie prior to be release in 2013:
