That's right, the Robocop figure will have diecast parts! But that's not the only thing that makes this an interesting release. In a Hot Toys first, Robocop, as well as the ED-209, will both be talking figures!
That's right, they will have sound chips that can be activated with a remote control(!) (something Bandai has already done with their diecast Chogokin line.) I've always wished that Hot Toys would use a remote system for the lights on their Iron Man figures, so perhaps this is a first step in that direction.
So, aside from the awesomeness of both "Officer Murphy" (Robocop) and his (somewhat) rival, ED-209, this can only make me wonder if/when we'll see other "talking" figures from Hot Toys.
Alright, I quit talking and get to the pics. I mean, that's why you're really here anyway, right? :-P

ED-209 will be out in Q1 2014 at a price of 409.99
Robocop will be released in Q2 2014 for 299.99. The "Mechanical Chair" version (which includes the same figure are the single Robocop release) will sell for 424.99, also to be released in Q2 2014
So, you've got almost a full year before these are released. Plenty of time to start saving those pennies! I know I will be!
