Well. And here I was thinking the move to get a giant statue of Robocop erected in Detroit would ultimately come to nothing. It has instead come to something. Something wonderful.

What you're seeing here is the almost-completed model of the city's sworn protector. This is the thing that'll be shipped to the sculptors to be made into a cast, and from that cast will emerge a bronze statue of Robocop that will stand ten feet tall.

Rocky got his own statue. Its only fair Robocop should get one too.

When do the corporations start planning the future of Detroit and bring in assassins to take down the resistant fighters and ex-cops protecting their homes? Yes, I like that one as equally as the first two. There was a quote in Last Action Hero something about the hero keeps surviving one adventure after another. The trilogy is like that.
