Don’t worry, he’s been in this situation before and bounced back (clip from RoboCop 2): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hG2OFFwNi8

Project Update #18: Speechless (With Lots of Pictures) 
Sun, May 12, 2013 9:16 pm
Posted by Imagination Station Detroit (linky to Kickstarter page with all images: Update #18)

There’s really nothing to say. Just take a look at RoboCop in his 10-foot-tall pixel-atom-perfect glory. So far he’s passed from you, the backers, to Fred Barton’s expert custom sculpting, to Across The Board Creation’s 3D scanning, digital enlarging, physical fabrication, and assembly in foam, wax, clay, and steel (pictured below), and now he’s headed to Venus Bronze Works in Detroit for casting and manufacturing in bronze. We bow to all parties for going above and beyond.

He’s not done yet, but what you’re seeing in these pictures is pretty much exactly how he’ll look. We hope you love it as much as we do, and we hope you send good vibes to all the craftsmen and the production team who’ve run across the obstacle course to get here, as we all send good vibes back to you, the awesome, patient, and hopefully super happy backers!

Good vibes to and from Detroit!

To be continued shortly..

Team Robo in Detroit

I should have paid more attention to the previous shots which show the normal sized parts in lilac/grey. It is massive though. The bronze version will be quite something to see I think. I hope it is on an OCP plinth. Actually it would be great if the plinth was a flattened ED-209.

Project Update #19: RoboCop Foam Form Arrives In Detroit! Video & Pics!
Posted by Imagination Station Detroit Sun, Sep 8, 2013 7:47 pm

RoboBackers,

We have reached another critical save point! The 10-foot-tall foam RoboForm is now at Venus Bronze Works in Detroit. He looks amazing!

Everyone available rushed to meet him as soon as they could, and our friends shot a little video of first contact which you can see here: https://vimeo.com/73798023

Giorgio and his crew will soon begin assembly and preparation for casting in bronze. That’s a big process, and we’re planning a visiting event and party for backers this fall so you can get an in-person sneak peak along the way. 

In the meantime check out the video and the photos below.

Thank you again to Fred Barton for the incredible design and use of his MGM license, Across The Board Creations for digitizing and scaling and foam fabrication, Venus Bronze Works for alchemical bronze transformations, and as always, to you our loyal backers for making all of this happen, along with everyone out there continuing to will things to fruition.

Dead or alive you are bronzing with me,

<3

Team Robo

Project Update #20: Detroit Needs A Statue of Robocop! by Imagination Station Detroit
Posted February 11, 2014

Project Update #20: On the eve of the new RoboCop release in America, the original RoboCop Statue moves ever closer towards completion!

Greetings RoboBackers! How do you feel about the new flick, have you seen it, will you? We all know it’s a Robo of a different color, but we’re hopeful it will be worthwhile. If it’s half as epic as the original, I’d consider it a win!

Just a quick update to fill you in on where we are at in production. After receiving the model here in Detroit, Venus Bronze Works put him together and we all scrutinized the final pose he will have for the rest of eternity. After successfully imitating an iconic Robo pose, VBW chopped him up (much like in RoboCop 2) into the pieces needed for the molds and bronze pour. We’re in the process of purchasing a whole lot of bronze, made possible by you, dear backers!

Here’s a couple links to recent local articles about the statue and new movie, followed by some picks of the chopped up model. Next up, the bronze pour! We’ll be sure to give you an update then, going to be awesome!

Check out this amazing detail from Mark Dubeau, Fred Barton Productions and Across The Board Creations! Can’t wait for Venus Bronze Works to make this a reality!

Project Update #21: Detroit Needs A Statue of Robocop! by Imagination Station Detroit

Project Update #21: Quick Clarification: Statue Coming Later This Year, NOT Today
Posted by Imagination Station Detroit ♥ Like

You may have heard in the news today that the RoboCop statue was being unveiled in Detroit today. This was news to us! And not true news.

To be clear: the RoboCop statue is still on track to be finished later this year, and is still in the hands of Giorgio Gikas at Venus Bronze Works in Detroit, but news reports about it being unveiled today are incorrect.

Perhaps the miscommunication grew from the misreporting of an MGM promotion for the new RoboCop DVD where a person in a RoboCop outfit is walking around Detroit and throwing out the first pitch at the Tigers game tonight.

All official updates will come through this page.

Thank you for your cooperation, and Go Tigers!

Team Robo
