I know I’m getting older because the films and characters I grew up with are making a comeback! The other year it was Total Recall with Colin Farrell, and this year it is Robocop without a Peter Weller in sight! But there is a bonus to this happening, as all the merchandise I had to play with as a child is suddenly cool again! So with nostalgia in my heart and mind, I bring you what I think is…

Why, oh why, oh why did I not know about these before now? All those nerdy fancy dress parties I missed out on because I couldn’t come up with a good enough costume idea. Well, no more of those days! From now on you can call me….Murphy!

The detail in this MK2 is amazing! I never had on of these growing up, but if I did it would have been broken to pieces because Robocop would have torn it apart, in my head.

Now and again you come across something so amazing it is hard to work out what to say about it. That is where this incredibly detailed 1/12th scale miniature arcade cabinets come into it. This one featuring Robocop comes at a price that is very hard to believe indeed. Great price, amazing item and something that I think I will start collecting.

The moment I saw this clock I thought to myself ” I’d buy that for a dollar! ” But it is a little bit more than a dollar, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want it! Hung up in a living room or bedroom this would look rather nice indeed.

At first, this seems a little expensive, but this is no ordinary ED-209, this is recycled art! So why not own a little piece of nerd artwork, which for a hand-made one-off is rather cheap!

This single toy fills me with so much nostalgia it is sill. With the spring-loaded leg/gun holster, it was the one toy I could re-enact the entire film with and something that still looks fun today. I wonder whatever happened to my one?!?

I never had the ED-209 action figure growing up, but I wish I had because on of these Ebay boy robots still in its box goes for £500+ these days! But even if I did have one I would have played with it until it broke anyway.

Alex Murphy / RoboCop would not have been able to say the line “Dead or alive, you’re coming with me!” with such malice if he looked as cute as this little chap! But that is what Robocop is and indeed was all about, something for the kids, to cheer on and believe in.
