NECA Teases New Dark Horse RoboCop Figure

NECA has taken to Twitter today to tease an upcoming RoboCop figure!

Based off of the four-issue comic book series RoboCop vs. Terminator published by Dark Horse Comics back in May of 1992, the Future RoboCop figure will stand 7" tall, feature a wide range of articulation and pack some serious heat, as can be seen in the image posted below...

Lawbreakers better watch their backs! The future of law enforcement is here!

Keep in mind that this is an unpainted prototype, so the final design may change slightly between now and its eventual release. This looks awesome and we can't wait to see the final product!

For those who don't know, in the RoboCop vs. Terminator miniseries, Skynet sends three Terminators back in time to Detroit to protect a turmoiled RoboCop from a lone human soldier also sent back to destroy him.

Discovering that the technology used to build him is partly responsible for the future development of Skynet, RoboCop sets out to take down Skynet in the post-apocalyptic future single-handedly. Part of the story focuses on his mind, the only part left of him, hiding and moving throughout Skynet's systems, fighting back as best he can.

RoboCop's human consciousness (Alex Murphy) waits for decades in hiding deep within Skynet's "consciousness", avoiding detection as the slaughter of humanity takes place. He waits for the opportunity when Skynet's attention will be focused on other matters with the war against the humans for him to make a move. A human assault allows Murphy to create a Terminator body that resembles his old form. He makes his escape and is nearly destroyed by human resistance fighters. He identifies himself as an ally and after gaining their confidence begins to plot to destroy Skynet with them.
