MURPHY IS THAT YOU? Detroit's Robocop Statue Ready For Casting

How do you attract heaps of sci-fi fans to visit your city? Create a Kickstarter campaign for a giant statue of the hero who protects said metropolitan area in a major feature film, then two years on, have Frank Barton sculpt the hero to life. Then take a picture like this, so the net can see what it looked like, before it was sent to Venus Bronze Works for casting and manufacturing.

Watch out Facebook - goofy poses with a Robocop statue in Detroit are coming your way...

 What do you think? 


  1. FUCK YEAH!!!! sorry about my potty mouth mate but last i heard they weren't able to raise the funds to get this going. shit i didn't know it was going to be that big. by the way i was born in Detroit just for the record.

  2. and don't forget folks you saw it here first on

  3. Glad you like it guys! I thought it would be the infamous poster image of RoboCop one, but this is just as cool, and massive! If I ever hit Detroit, I'll be sure to get my photo taken by it.
