Just saw this on Instagram and I love it!!
I’m happy either version of robo comes with the Murphy portrait, I was worried the clean version will only have it. I’ll get the deluxe version with the chair as I already have multiples of the standard one. Hopefully I can swap heads with the older versions we got already.

New one is spring loaded too. Battle damage will not have the spring loaded.

They are up on BBTS. Battle Damage does have the chair, and comes with a premium price because of it...

Oh wow $70 bucks for the chair version, it sounds reasonable since it’s a large piece.

I never got any of the earlier offerings, so I'm happy to pick up one now that they've got the Weller likeness. I'd LIKE to get the chair, but I'm not sure I'm willing to spring for both figures right now.

Having a number of the old releases, I'm good with just getting the battle damaged one.

Cmon NECA, you’ve got the likeness rights, time to make regular cop Alex Murphy. I’d be shocked if it never happened somehow.

Then really knock out a home run and somehow work out the rights to do Clarence Boddicker.

I need to see some actual side by side comparisons for how much better the deco is. I have the OG Battle Damaged one, so I'm not too enthused to get just a chair for the money

I wonder why NECA decided to make the Weller head sculpt so wrinkled? Hopefully this will be smoothed out in the production copies.

Also like someone else has mentioned, this is definitely 'skip leg day' Robocop.

Interesting, mine is broken so Ill probably end Up getting the new one but It looks exactly the same wrong proportions and all, helmet too small ,legs too thin. The articulation looks the same too, wich is bad because It was really limited ,even for Robocop . And the Weller likeness isnt a 100% there so Im not sure.

A hair under $40 after taxes for a 10 year old figure with a new head...

I'm stoked for the new Robocop. Finally I can have his look from the end of the film! Looks pretty good.
Really they should be switched around. The clean version should come with the chair, and the battle damaged one should have the rifle.
Not going to complain though, since I want the chair and the battle damaged look anyway.

I just got the Hakane figure a few days ago, and it's glorious. After this, all I need is a few supporting characters!

LEWIS! CLARENCE! EMIL! ALL THE GOONS! ROBOCAIN!
I'll even buy Dick Jones. DICK JOOOOOONES!

Most of his face was covered in prosthetics in the movie, it's not wrinkled so much as it's just textured I guess... But that is pretty much how he looked, especially as he moved around.
