The new reboot of the RoboCop movie is currently in the making and today, we saw photos of the new ‘RoboCop’ suit shared in the Internet. The suit looks kind of simple and not that great. Maybe this is the first version of the suit. Most probably somewhere in the middle of the movie, they will show another new suit (like what we have seen in all the Iron Man movies).
Anyway, let’s wait and see. This RoboCop reboot also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson, with Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. The film is set for release on August 9, 2013.

We are wondering if any company will consider making the collectible figure for the upcoming movie Dredd 2012. Sideshow Collectibles previously released a Diorama figure which will be shipped in September 2012 and it is based on the Judge Dredd comic version. You may click on this link to consider the comic version of this figure which is a limited edition figure where it will be only 300 available worldwide; Pop Culture Shock Collectibles Judge Dredd Diorama – 1:4 Scale – Pop Culture Shock
The look of Judge Dredd in the new movie is definetly different then the one from the comic and also from the movie Judge Dredd way back in 1995 staring Sylvester Stallone. Check out the teaser of this movie in the poster below;
While we wait for either Hot Toys, Enterbay or Sideshow the announce if they are making the Dredd 2012 figure, let’s watch the trailer shall we.
During the recent Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention (STGCC), we saw another breed of collectibles that is taking place. Super Alloy collectibles. We first came across the 1/6th Scale Super Alloy Batman licensed by Play Imaginative started taking pre-orders from the local hobby shops in KL and we thought it was not cheap, RM 850++ for this figure. This figure comprise at least 85% die-cast metal alloy, with more than 50 points of articulation.
The exciting thing is, Play Imaginative is going to release Iron Man Mark VII from the movie The Avengers with the same material used for the Batman figure above. The figure also have 50 points of articulation. We think this figure will be a great addition to any Iron Man collectors out there. Let’s wait and see if this figure will be a great competition to Hot Toys that have been dominating the Iron Man collectibles since the first Iron Man movie and the upcoming Iron Man 3 movie.
