So here’s the deal: a couple of months ago, some concept artwork from the new RoboCop remake supposedly leaked online. Not a lot of people seemed to report on it at the time, and the general feeling was that it wasn’t legit… mainly because it seemed too lame to be real. It looked like a piece of fan art inspired by whatever video game they had been playing most recently (ie. Crysis) and really did not look like a robot or cyborg at all. Well, as it turns out, this concept art was indeed the real deal because the first set photos have since found their way online and they are a very close match.
The good folks over at Coming Soon got their hands on the first photos of the suit in action, and it looks… well, nothing like RoboCop. I’m trying not to pre-judge it based on the original, but this looks more like body armor than a man turned into a machine. We also know that they wanted to have Joel Kinnaman’s face more visible too, so I’m assuming that visor will flip up at times like we see in the second photo. This is definitely going to take some getting used to, but I guess that’s what happens when you remake something so iconic. Are you a fan of the new RoboCop suit?
