MCFARLANE TOYS - ROBOCOP
This 6-inch RoboCop figure was part of the Movie Maniacs 2004 series released by MCfarlane toys. The seventh Maniacs line also featured four characters from the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Corporal Hicks from Aliens.



This ROBOCOP is one very cool action figure and the detail is exellent, as is the paintwork. He is pretty much "right out of the cyber-lab" fresh. The likeness is perfect. They even managed to engrave "OCP-POLICE-001" on his helmet and leg. THAT'S detail!

None of his parts are the least bit pre-posed, and his articulation is superb by any measure. The figure is moveable at the head, arms, elbows, upper wrists, waist, legs, knees, and ankles. The articulation is, for the most part, nice and tight. Robo will hold any pose well. The backs of his legs even have these nice moving pistons that are connected to the ankles. Very nice touch of detail there. The articulation seems sound, but I've been treating the figure rather gently, even though it seems very sturdily made. This is not an action figure, however, that I would recommend turning over to a small child and letting him fling it across the living room.

RoboCop comes with his weapon, which fits perfectly into his right hand. He also comes with a display base, which is more or less a chunk of street with a trash can and some spent bullet cartridges littered around. The figure stands up perfectly well on his own, though, so if you don't want to use the base, there's no need to.





About the only things that would've made this the ultimate RoboCop figure would've been a removable helmet, and a pop-open leg holster for his weapon. But a removable helmet might have looked a little too imprecise, and the leg holster probably would've been near-impossible at this scale. These are not in any way, shape, or form complaints.

In 2005 Mcfarlane Toys also released a 12-inch version of the figure from Movie Maniacs 7. This version has the same joints and accessories but is updated with battle damage taken from the first RoboCop movie.
