Speechless (With Lots of Pictures)

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..

      Heeey, any chance of another update any time soon? Maybe an ETA?

      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!)

    5. Creator Jodi Richter on May 13, 2013

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

    6. Creator Gregory Allen on May 13, 2013

      Best $100 I've ever spent.

    7. Creator MindChamber on May 13, 2013

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

      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. Creator Matt Varden on May 13, 2013

      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!

    11. Creator Kris Aubuchon on May 12, 2013

      This is amazing.

    12. Creator Duncan Moore on May 12, 2013

      Excellent work. I absolutely will make my pilgrimage to Detroit some day to see this.

    13. Creator Miss Tron Bonne on May 12, 2013

      OMG!! It's amazing!! I can't wait to make the trip to Detroit!! I'm speechless

      I love you Robocop!!

    14. Creator Michael Doyle on May 12, 2013

      Awesome! So proud.

    15. Creator David Q Hogan on May 12, 2013

      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. Creator MindChamber on May 12, 2013

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

    17. Creator Douglas Domingues on May 12, 2013

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