"RoboCop 3 (1993)" was set in the near future in a dystopian metropolitan Detroit, Michigan and filmed in Atlanta, Georgia. Most of the abandoned buildings seen in the film were slated for demolition to make way for facilities for the 1996 Olympics. Robert John Burke takes over the role of RoboCop/Alex Murphy as Peter Weller declined to star in another RoboCop movie.
I'd already covered a part of this Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece 1/6 scale 12-inch collectible figure (click here for pictures of the packaging as well as a detailed step-by-step removal of RoboCop's helmet - YES! This helmet is removable)
RoboCop's standard sidearm throughout the movies is the "Auto 9". It is a Beretta M93R machine pistol which has been heavily modified for the film, featuring a longer barrel with an enormous compensator/flash hider shaped like a casket, plastic grips and a taller rear sight. Typically, Robocop fires this weapon on its 3-round burst setting.
In addition to his usual armament, RoboCop also uses a multipurpose pod that replaces his lower left arm. It contains (from top to bottom) a machine gun, a grenade launcher and a flamethrower. The machine gun is actually Calico 950A mounted on its side with a barrel extension and futuristic dressings.
