Years prior, a car accident sent him and a 12-year-old girl into a river. He was saved from drowning by a robot, but only because it computed that he had a higher probability of survival, so despite his pleas to the robot, the girl was left to drown. The incident left him with a robotic prosthetic arm and guilt over the girl's death. Spooner now harbors a strong distrust for robots and the advancement of technology; he is certain that a human would have saved the girl if one had been in a position to make the same choice.
This is the recently released MC Toys F-032 1/6 scale Plainclothes Cop set which comes with Beanie, T-shirt, Leather Shoulder Holster, Pistol, Leather Long Coat, Leather pants, Allstar shoes. NOTE: 1/6 scale head sculpt and 12-inch figure body NOT included. I picked up the Will Smith head sculpt loose from a local 1/6 scale shop and added the 12-inch body so that I could suit up the figure. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures.
Here's 1/6 scale Will Smith as Del Spooner in "I, Robot" without his leather long coat, wearing just the gray long sleeve T-shirt, black leather pants and shoes. The shoes are the type where you actually have to slip the feet in to wear them. I still much prefer these proper 1/6 scale footwear than the "boot-feet" that a lot of manufacturers are going into, all taking a leaf out of Hot Toys book, since it was Hot Toys who started the whole "boot-feet" thing. Recently, a few boot-feet have not been compatible with the leg pegs and that can be quite a P.I.T.A.
Here's a closer look at the 1/6 scale gray long sleeve T-shirt and leather shoulder holster
In the "I, Robot" film, Detective Spooner (Will Smith) carries a futuristic custom pistol that is supposed to be a Semiautomatic 9mm. It is built from a 2 part plastic shell (with parts molded from a Walther P99) that has a real Taurus Model 85 .38 special revolver hidden inside. That's NOT what is included. What is included is a 1/6 scale SIG Sauer P228 semi-automatic pistol
The P228 comes with two pistol magazines, one spare clip in the holder and one in the gun itself.

Here's 1/6 scale Will Smith as Del Spooner in "I, Robot" wearing the beanie and black leather long coat
The beanie seems to be too small and doesn't fit his head nicely.
I decided to go without the beanie but kept everything else

Here's a closer look at the 1/6 scale SIG Sauer P228 semi-automatic pistol, a compact version of the P226. It comes with removable magazine and movable slide.
Since I don't have an actual 1/6 scale USR NS-5 robot model, I decided to use a Takara Henshin Cyborg instead to be 12-inch Del Spooner's companion
