Hot Toys 1/6th scale RoboCop (die-cast & battle damaged) comparison pictures (+ Alex Murphy)

continued from previous post...

After having reviewed both the Hot Toys MMS266 1/6th scale RoboCop (Battle Damaged Version) - posted earlier on my toy blog HERE and HERE - and Alex Murphy Collectible Figure - Murphy reviews posted HERE and HERE, it's time to show some comparison pictures together with the earlier released Hot Toys MMS202-D04 1/6th scale Die-cast RoboCop Collectible Figure (reviewed HERE, HERE and HERE). According to the instruction sheet, the battle-damaged RoboCop parts are interchangeable with die-cast RoboCop parts. The problem is that they don't match in terms of color / texture (one looking brand new and unused while the other is purposely created to be in a bad shape after having gone through some punishment at the hands of ED-209 and the Detroit police) so I'm not sure why anyone would want to switch the parts. Hot Toys die-cast RoboCop also comes with battle damaged parts (interchangeable battle damaged helmet and interchangeable battle damaged chest armor - pictures HERE) but even those "scars" are cleaner and shinier than the latest released battle damaged RoboCop. It would have been ideal if battle damaged RoboCop came with a helmeted head instead of just the one head with exposed face sculpt of Alex Murphy (Peter Weller).

The Hot Toys MMS266 1/6th scale RoboCop (Battle Damaged Version) seems to have the correct color application which is movie-accurate as compared to the Hot Toys die-cast RoboCop which is too silver for my liking. There has been some debate regarding the color of RoboCop's armor in the original 1987 film vs the color of Hot Toy's die-cast RoboCop figure and I even dedicated a post regarding this issue HERE. I have seen a more accurate paint application for Hot Toys die-cast RoboCop by an amazing and talented customizer Reeve Tan of Imperial Studio. You can check out the pictures HERE, along with other stunning customized works of his. We end up paying more for a die-cast figure which has a nice hefty feel because of its heavy weight but we all know Hot Toys have the talent to paint a regular MMS figure and make it look metallic as they have done in the past - see my "Comparison pictures of Hot Toys MMS202-D04 die-cast RoboCop with HT MMS010 & MMS032 RoboCop 12-inch Collectible Figures" post HERE. I always wonder if die-cast or the extra cost is really necessary...
