NECA's New RoboCop Figure Is Based On The 1989 NES Game

Posted by Damien McFerran

Dead or alive, this figure is coming home with us

Toy maker NECA has revealed the next entry in its video game-inspired figure line, and it's none other than augmented officer Alex J. Murphy, better known as RoboCop.

The figure takes inspiration from Data East's 1989 NES adaptation of the 1987 Paul Verhoeven movie. The concept has recently been rebooted and the new movie will see release in 2014.

Here's the official word:

Robocop is the third figure in our highly successful line of classic 8-bit video game tributes. Released at the very end of 1989 for the super popular 8-bit home console, the video game Robocop is an ’80s classic.

NECA’s Robocop (1989 Video Game Appearance) will be a fully articulated 7-inch figure with spring-loaded holster and Auto-9 Pistol. Robocop is painted in the blue-ish purple video game deco with a hint of cel shading. This figure comes in a special window box packaging with opening flap to re-create the look and feel of the classic 1989 video game packaging.

Video Game Robocop is tentatively scheduled for release in February 2014. And in case you missed it above, this figure is limited to one production run only. When they’re gone, they’re gone!

Nice I need that figure for my collection and for the NES game great title. Nostalgia is forming again of my childhood sigh..... Regardless i'm a RoboCop movie fan and the new RoboCop remake isn't going to be the same wacky/corny great story that made 80's/90's RoboCop so amazing sadly. After learning my lesson of watching the epic fail version Total Recall remake or any remakes in general i'm done of watching remakes of movies I grew up on.

I like the hard time the player had going down the stair at the beginning of the gameplay video. A good piece of evidence of the flawlessly gameplay of this wonderful NES title.

Damn the sound those dogs make is tragic.

Never played this. Played the hell out of Robocop 2 though. that was much better if my distant memories are to be believed.

As for the figure - its totally epic.

Anyone remember that contest that Nintendo Power had where you could win the Robocop's car from the movie?
