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..

      I imagined his "hes a cop killer" stance to be the perfect cyborg stance

      really excited and everything; the detail looks great but... whats up with his stance? his shoulders seem a bit off and his stance is like almost leaning backwards.

      Dead or alive... you're coming with me (to Detroit!)

      This is going to be epic! Glad I'm a supporter.

      Best $100 I've ever spent.

      probably too late to reconfigure that pose Id imagine.
      something more iconic, like this wouldve suited him better

    8. Jeffrey Pfaller on

      Best $5 I ever spent.

      I'm very excited to see this coming together, it looks absolutely incredible. Good work Jerry and everyone involved. I just moved away from Detroit but I would love to return for the unveiling of this amazing statue.

    10. Matt Varden on

      Really incredible, that is an amazing sculpt. Once this project is fully completed, is there any plan for a Backer's Day get-together? It'd be great to get a huge group pic of everyone who backed the project there with the statue!

      This is amazing.

    14. Michael Doyle on

      Awesome! So proud.

    15. David Q Hogan on

      Absolutely amazed by the quality of this work - I'm extremely happy that I backed this project. A sincere thank you to all the craftspeople, organisers and rights holders who made this happen! Will make the pilgrimage from Australia once it's done.

    16. MindChamber on

      The "he's a cop killer" pose wouldve been more elegant, but Im just happy to see this finally come together.

    17. Douglas Domingues on

      Incredible! Can't wait to see the final version, installed!
