New snapshot of a new RoboCop suit surfaces

ROBOCOP has definitely had a rough go of it ever since... well... since it was even announced, really.  And then those set photos of the new suit didn't do it any favors.  Even a little bit.  At all. 

But maybe this set photo of a redesigned suit will?

Before we take a gander at the picture, here's one interesting bit of illumination as to why there are two different suits running around (standing around?) - back when Drew McWeeny gave an absolutely scathing review of the script, he pointed out this little scene which actually describes said two suits at play in the movie.  "I’ll share this one detail. In the film, when Murphy is turned into Robocop 1.0, it’s described 'a high-tech version of the ’80s suit.' Then they show a focus group scene where criminals laugh at the design. 'He looks like a toy from the ’80s!' So they redesign him to look 'meaner' as Robocop 2.0, who passes focus group approval." 

So without further ado, I present to you what might very well be the suit design for Robocop 2.0.  Or maybe this is version 1.0 and the other suit was version 2.0.  It isn't actually clear which is which.

ROBOCOP releases on February 7th, 2014.

Stupid...

This keeps getting worse... these guys have no excuse whatsoever for what they are doing... They had a great design to work from the original and managed to completely f*** things up by trying to change what only needed to be slightly tweaked if anything. The first pictures looked like a guy in suit and this blurry picture looks nothing but a generic robot (not cyborg...) that we've seen a million times in other movies and videogames... (Oh, and we already had a RoboCop version 2.0, it was

I feel like I've shot this guy in about twenty different sci-fi games. Hmmm.

I could not be more ambivalent about this movie if I tried.

That isn't RoboCop.

Sorry, but I wouldn't ever buy this fucking Transforminator as RoboCop - not even for a dollar.

"Robocop 1.0, it’s described 'a high-tech version of the ’80s suit.' Then they show a focus group scene where criminals laugh at the design. 'He looks like a toy from the ’80s!' So they redesign him to look 'meaner' as Robocop 2.0" And that, right there, ladies and gentlemen, is the ONLY ONE reason you need to NOT go see this remake. It's an insult to the original, which is a classic of it's genre and a really well made one too. It's icing on the cupcake, cherry on top, the one quote that

I think this is just a prototype. If you remember in part two they had all kind of goofy prototypes to try to update the original. I don't see them completely obscuring his face. He would loose any "human" element that he has, which kinda defeats the ideal of the film. 'Course this film is so far off the rails, I'm probably talking out of my ass.

CRIMINAL FOCUS GROUP: Paint it black. We're totally afraid of black. Not a lot of people know that. Oh, and keep the hand. Hands are scary, man. They're like spiders. Ewww, gross!

Focus Group

I think the filmmakers should be in a focus group and take turns talking about why the fuck they're remaking, and ruining, classic films. Foucs group might help, since there is no cure in sight for Hollwood-Remake Syndrome.

You know, I don't remember exactly what was said in the previous report about the suit that most people hated and said looked like a man in a suit...but was it ever stated that...we were definitely looking at Robocop? I mean, was there any possibility that it was actually meant to be a man in a suit...and was perhaps the rival plan to a part man, part machine solution to law enforcement?

Yeah, they both look terrible - though I love the idea of a bunch of criminals herded into a focus group to judge the suit. It's a funny idea, and a great comment on the practice of focus groups in general.

So, this looks even more like an Iron Man armoured suit than the first one? Well, I'll have to echo what's been said many times about it being important for RoboCop to look half man, half robot, and not look like merely a man in an armoured suit...and this isn't really helping that.
