PLEASE PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPON! YOU HAVE 20 SECONDS TO COMPLY!
Those classic words belong to one of most memorable scenes in cinematic history! Of course I’m referring to ED-209 (Enforcement Droid 209) in the classic 1987 movie Robocop. I first came across this enormous figure whilst I was exploring a cool little comic book store in Bristol, England. I was immediately blown away by the figures immense size and meticulous detail. For a moment I was convinced that I was looking at the actual miniature used for the stop motion effects in the movie!
This was the first time that I had come across any Hot Toys products and it was immediately apparent that the team who built this figure were obviously as obsessed with the original 1987 movie as myself. Only such a deep love could give rise to such a realistic recreation of this monstrous robot.In case it’s been a while since you last saw Robocop, here is ED-209’s infamous board room scene. We’ve edited this so that it’s safe(ish) for the little folk.
ED-209 made an appearance in all three of the original Robocop movies. In Robocop 2 he had a brief cameo during a media break segment and in Robocop 3 he can be seen guarding the OCP armory where he is reprogrammed to be “AS LOYAL AS A PUPPY!”. The 2014 remake saw a more contemporary design for ED-209 but it retained the main shape and aesthetic of the original.
YOU NOW HAVE 15 SECONDS TO COMPLY!
As you can see from these images, the paint job is just fantastic. There are detailed weathering marks around the heat sinks and bolts. You can even see oil leak effects painted on parts of the legs. The wires that you can see in the photo above are made from durable materials and create an outstanding effect. Every part of this figure is fully articulated. This includes the head, arms, legs, guns, rocket launcher and toes. On top of this are other nice features such as spinning rods in the legs and working pistons. Every part has multiple points of articulation so you can recreate pretty much every movement from the films.
I AM NOW AUTHORISED TO USE PHYSICAL FORCE!
This figure also talks quoting several of ED-209’s lines from the movie including startup and walking sound effects. The rocket launchers shown below are fully poseable and you can even articulate the ammo holders for the arm guns.
In our opinion this is the best ED-209 out there. There have been other good efforts from NECA and the likes but the meticulous level of detail and sheer 1/6th size make this one stand out in a league of its own!
