Production has finally started on 2013’s Robocop reboot, and it was only a matter of time before set photos hit the web. And sure enough, we’re blessed with pictures of Robocop’s new armor. The verdict? Well, I’m kind of liking it.
Sure, it looks like any space marine body armor, but it also has this subtle sense of elegance and toughness. Like one of those new Dodge Challengers; pretty, yet kick-ass. I’ve long held the notion that from a design stand-point, Robocop has to reflect Detroit. In the 80’s, Detroit churned out bulky, lame looking cars, so it made sense that Robocop was so bulky and slow. It’s 2012, and Detroit is making some great products, and Robocop is no different. Then again, the suit could look terrible in motion. We’ll just have to wait and see.
