I doubt that this is the only version we see. If I remember correctly, he is supposed to have different modes. Maybe this is combat or stealth.

My problem is that it looks more like a man in armor, rather than a robot man.

In the original version of the script he goes through different versions the way Iron Man does and gets smaller and more human-like as they perfect the technology.

It's going to have to depend on how it all works in the movie. Maybe he moves more robotically, maybe the cinematography shows the suit in a different light. Hell, maybe there's an arc where he has to rediscover his humanity despite being a cyborg, and that more human-like suit is toward the end of that arc.

There is a strange tendency for films of this genre to take cues from other recent popular film designs. It's part batman, part snake eyes no Robocop. There doesn't seem to be anything fresh looking about it at all.

Granted it's only one photo and it's in no way a finished product. It could be a costume that is only seen for a few seconds or minutes in the final film.

The point is the original was such an iconic look, that this version seems like it needs to up it's game. Hopefully it has more to offer than this.

I did just notice that the right hand is still human. Echoes of the moment in the original where they debate saving his arm?

On the one hand, RoboCop without the satire doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

On the other hand, I DON'T CARE EXCUSE ME MGM I WOULD LIKE THAT NOW PLEASE

I see everyone on Facebook and Twitter reacting the same as you, and I don't get it. I mean, I respect your opinion, but, for me, the action looks tight; I dig the story they're going for; and it has Jackie Earle Haley, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, and Michael Keaton. I just can't imagine it being anything but exciting.

This is obviously not going to be an al time classic, but it looks to scratch the same itch Dredd was made for as well.

I was not a fan of a remake and that trailer did nothing to change my mind. Of the changes that I noticed, I cannot say that I liked any them. Yeah, I hold the original in high regard and that is probably playing a part. But, it still just looks like Iron Man armor to me (specially with the flip down helmet) than being a cyborg.

It doesn't look as bad as the NOES remake, so there's that. But I'm not impressed with the story changes either. And ED-209 isn't stop-motion.

I hold the first Robocop in very high regard. That being said, this looks AWESOME. Like Dan said, it might fit in that Dredd category of simple fun. I hope it turns out well. Hell, if the story is halfway-decent but the action is as good as it looks, I'll be pleased.
