Looks like a lot of people agree!

Source

Barely a week after Detroit’s mayor tweeted that a RoboCop statue wouldn’t be erected in the city, the Detroit Free-Press is reporting that a group of artists and fans who supported the idea have raised more than $50,000 toward its construction. The group will continue to solicit donations on its Kickstarter page until March 29th. After that, it will determine how much to spend and hire sculptors to build the RoboCop statue. Despite Mayor Dave Bing initially rejecting the idea, the Free-Press claims the Mayor’s office is now working with the group to find a public spot for the statue. If not, the statue will likely end up at an outdoor art space called the Imagination Station.

And people up here have started to toss around the idea for a Wolverine statue.  Not quite sure where it might be placed though.  The NWT is a fair bit out of the way for tourism.

Robocop Statue Production Update! By Imagination Station Detroit
A lot has happened over the past week - lots of questions coming in, including how the statue is going to look and how it’s going to be produced. We’re extremely excited to announce that Fred Barton Productions (http://www.the-robotman.com/) has stepped-up with an offer to donate the use of the very same materials they are using to create their amazing 1:1 Robocop statue which is now available for sale.

Ooh. Nice.

You know, they could probably just cast the bust in bronze and be done with it…

Heh.. of course, then it might look like this statue from Portland:

Google Maps

You really can’t tell from the picture, sadly, but that’s a nice bust, with a plaque underneath it, telling you who it is, and what their accomplishments were…

... except the head is a bizarre alien one, and the plaque is indecipherable alienese.

I don’t know what it’s actually called - I refer to it as the ‘Bust of the Alien Warlord’, as it looks like the sort of thing an alien general would have.

Update #4 was in my mailbox today:

RoboCop Peter Weller Speaks To Detroit (Video!), All Is Well, Movie Screening In Detroit TONIGHT
By Imagination Station Detroit
RoboBackers,

Something pretty amazing happened today. Peter Weller, who played RoboCop in parts 1 & 2, released a video on Funny Or Die saying hello to the people of Detroit, having some fun with the statue (which he loves), and letting the world know that RoboCop still fights for Detroit*: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/521706ecf7/robocop-speaks-to-detroit

On the statue production side of things, all is well in the cosmos. Some of this is nitty gritty work as we confirm moulds and materials and the artists and craftsmen needed to accomplish the statue. Look out for more specific updates soon.

If you’re around Detroit tonight, the Burton Theatre is showing a double feature of RoboCop 1 & 2 starting at 8 PM: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=199715650054825 . Tickets are $5 and all the proceeds are going to the Detroit charity http://www.alternativesforgirls.org .

Feel great, everybody. Thanks for all your support and keep it up!

http://detroitneedsrobocop.com

 
Kind of short notice on the movie screenings though… mail was received at 5:09 p.m.

Update #5

RoboUpdate! Time’s Winding Down… “Your Friends Have 8 Days To Comply.”
By Imagination Station Detroit
RoboBackers! It’s hard to believe, but we’re coming up on just one week left of funding, and then the real fun begins. Here’s a quick update with more to follow in the remaining days, and of course beyond.

First, you should know that the peeps working on the production of the statue have been rocking it for you. We’re collaborating with some truly talented and expert people to finalize every step of the process and the ultimate location in Detroit. It’s amazing how quickly and organically and excellently this is all snapping together. The world doesn’t always move at internet speeds, but sometimes, on special occasions like this, it comes darn close!

Second, now is the time to tell your friends and networks that if they want to be in the credits of this epic creation they need to back the project through Kickstarter by March 26th. We’ve got the start of a revamped project site cooking at http://detroitneedsrobocop.com that will clearly credit everyone who contributes. Remember, friends don’t let friends miss out on being able to list “helped crowd-create a statue of RoboCop in Detroit” on their r

Update #7

YOU ROBODID IT!!!!!!!!!!!! By Imagination Station Detroit

Well, here we go! One crowd funded RoboCop statue in Detroit coming right up. RoboThank you so, so RoboMuch to everyone who backed the project, spread word, suggested ideas, and helped out, and to everyone who will continue to do so as production moves forward. We’re all on a 21st century adventure here, and you can follow the process as it unfolds at http://detroitneedsrobocop.com.

This is just the beginning, not only of the physical creation and installation of the statue, but of a wider crowdfunded revolution we’re all participating in, where things like this can actually happen. We’re proud to be a part of it with you, proud to be representing Detroit, and proud to roll into the future RoboStarter style.

In very new news, it looks like the statue is going to be installed on Wayne State University

Update #8

Ze Rewards Are In Ze Mail! Online Badges, New RoboPodcast

RoboBackers,

The lion’s share of t-shirts, pins, and a letter from Bob Morton on behalf of OCP’s Statuary Concept Division are in the mail or zipped up to go, so if you haven’t received anything yet, check your boxes in the days ahead. Shwoow! We wish we had a RoboMailroom! Behold a very small slice of the hundreds of package


As a backer at any level, you have a fancy, custom digital badge waiting for you right now at http://detroitneedsrobocop.com/robobadge . Just type in the email address you used with Kickstarter and your personalized badge will appear like so:

Post it on your website, print it and post it on the refrigerator, iron it on a t-shirt, wheat paste it where bill posting is allowed, tape it to your brother’s back, or anything else you’d like that’s digitally or physically possible.

Inspired by the statue, the Detroit film podcast The Projection Booth with Mike and Mondo Justin just put out an *epic* 2 hour + interview with actors and crew from RoboCop, and an update on Detroit statue production with some project stories (starting at approximately 2 hours(!) and 4 minutes in): http://www.projection-booth.com/2011/06/22/episode-16-robocop . Note: the best way to listen to it seems to be to click the “Download Show” button, which will bring you to an easier to use player. Enjoy!

We’ve been surfing the seas of details over here, making sure all the studio, production, and location processes and permissions are in place. We anticipate more firm announcements on projected manufacturing and rough unveiling dates in near future.

Thank you so much again for making this happen. We’ve been trying to keep RoboBacker updates limited to really significant milestones while we work through everything, but recognize that you can’t see everything we’re seeing over here, so we’ll be sure to update more frequently with more stories of what it takes and what it feels like to realize this collective vision.

With much love,

TeamRobo in Detroit

Sorry… I was a little late posting this… the event is over

Project Update #9: Detroit Fanfare, Peter Weller, Party, Post Office, Progress 

RoboBackers,

Check it out, coming up on September 24th and 25th it’s the Detroit Fanfare, a big comic book convention in downtown Detroit: http://www.detroitfanfare.com . RoboCop star Peter Weller will be there and we will too, representing the project at our very own RoboBooth. Yes this is awesomely nerdy and yes this is awesomely awesome. We’ll be sure to take pictures.

At our booth we’ll have updated illustrations of the statue, awesome Detroit RoboCop shirts, the Detroit RoboCop statue story and timeline so far, and, somewhat wildly, the debut of a 4-feet X 6-feet crowdfunded oil painting-turned-video game called “The Spirit of Detroit Vs The Blight” that includes RoboCop as a playable character: http://bit.ly/pTku4O .

On the night of Saturday the 24th there will be an after party at PJ’s Lager House (a great time to cash in on your free drink if you’re in that reward bracket ) with all door money going to Forgotten Harvest ( http://forgottenharvest.org ) as featured by RoboCharity.

*ALL* of your packages should already be in your hands, or in the mail in a few cases. If you’ve given us your address and we haven’t spoken one-to-one in the last week about a special case, RoboSanta should have come for you by now. Sorry if he got stuck in any of your chimneys along the way. RoboSanta tries his best.


Fred Barton ( http://www.the-robotman.com ) who’s painstakingly executing the RoboForm we’ll be casting for the statue says he’s almost done…maybe a month…before we can scan the pieces and make another big dent in statue production.


Hugs, kisses, and shiny metallic exteriors,


Team Robo in Detroit

Project Update #10: Happy RoboDays! A Very Merry Update. Stay Out of Trouble.

Posted by Imagination Station Detroit   Received 12/25/2011

Merry Christmas, Happy Poly-Holidays, and a Pre-emptive New Year’s greetings strike to you, RoboBackers!

We’re excited to let you know that a long and crucial and awesome progress bar has finished loading and we’re now entering a new phase of RoboDevelopment.

Fred Barton http://the-robotman.com has completed his brand new, custom, kicka**, MGM-licensed RoboCop sculpture which is now on its way to an undisclosed facility (hint: not Area 51) for 3D scanning, digital scaling, and foam fabrication. From there the forms will arrive at Venus Bronze Works in Detroit where the statue will be cast and poured by liquid metal ninjas who’ve lovingly roundhoused many other important works in the city: http://www.modeldmedia.com/features/venust13908.aspx and http://www.thedetroiter.com/site/venuspage.html .

Thanks for your patience as we fill in this expert-level statue sudoku puzzle. We hope to be able to share pics with you Real Soon Now™.

And oh hey, check this out. Peter Weller was in town a little bit back (he says hello!) and gave a great interview to WDET Detroit public radio that’s more than worth a listen: http://wdetfm.org/news/story/PeterWellerInterview . He talks about the statue and much else. Super duper smart and cool dude.

Also attached, a couple pieces of sweet RoboCop graffiti that have shown up in the city. Photo credit for “stay out of trouble” to dailyinvention on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dailyinvention/6274472975 .



Thanks again for everything you’ve done and continue to do to support this truly amazing, one-of-a-kind adventure in crowdfunded RoboStatuary, and enjoy what we hope is a relaxing time with the ones you love.

Cheers O’clock, and Stay. Out. Of. Trouble,

Team Robo in Detroit and everywhere

Project Update #11: Detroit Needs A Statue of Robocop! by Imagination Station Detroit (Tue, Mar 13, 2012)

Project Update #11: RoboFootprints + RoboCharity
 

Posted by Imagination Station Detroit
 

Happy pre-spring, RoboBackers! The sun is shining here in Detroit and the RoboBears are re-awaking from cyborg-hibernation.



Fred Barton’s precision-detailed RoboCop form has been shipped in many pieces to the http://acrosstheboardcreations.com 3D scanning and fabrication shop. They’ve sent along some pictures of RoboCop *in the computer* (

<-- Zoolander ref, +5 points) before it is re-physicalized at a larger scale, attached to this message.


For the local production team here in Detroit, we’ve been in the same boat as you as far as wondering about timelines on when the statue will be here. Basically we are working with world-class wizards who are donating a lot of their time on a remarkably time-consuming process since the reality is $60,000 turns out not to be a lot of money for the tasks at hand. But! We’ve been constantly assured that like an actual wizard, a RoboCop statue is neither late nor early… it arrives precisely when it intends (

<-- Lord of The Rings ref, +5 points).



So when you look at the beach and see only one set of footprints during the hardest wait for the completion of a crowdfunded statue of your life and ask “Where were you then RoboCop?” He will say, “That, my RoboBacker, is before I had arms to carry you.” (

<-- religious poem ref, +[indeterminate points, we are a non-denominational crew]).



In action around the project, the RoboCharity fundraiser for http://forgottenharvest.org that sprung up alongside the statue project is hosting a really big fundraiser with the good folks at Funny Or Die, coming up April 27th in Detroit and hosted by comedian Seth Meyers. Awesome!


We’ve also just heard that the Go Comedy improv troop here in Metro Detroit is getting ready to perform their RoboCop The Musical which should be awesome in a different way: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gbsdetroit/go-comedy-and-gbs-detroit-present-robocop-the-musi .



The next statue steps we should be sharing are the physical foam pieces here in Detroit for casting along with additional access to the labs for more frequent photographs and updates. So stay tuned, stay strong, stay wizardly, stay bronze, RoboBoy, stay bronze (

<-- The Outsiders ref, +10 points, no question),



With love and sincere thanks for your continued support as the progress bar glaciates forward,
Team Robo

Project Update #12: Is this thing on?

Posted by Imagination Station Detroit


Testing, testing, 1-2, 1-2. Hello RoboBackers. We just flew in from Delta City and boy are our arms tired. /crickets. eeee. /tugs on collar. Tough crowdsource…

But seriously, folks, it’s been a second since the last update. Apologies for that. The production has been a bit of a blackbox for us as well, but we just checked back in with Fred Barton who has assured us that the parts will be ready soon, and Venus Bronze Works is ready to receive them in Detroit. After that, things should open up quite a bit.

So, no real new news, other than we’ve checked in with the professionals and gotten a thumbs up and reaffirmation that all is well in the RoboVerse.

To help keep things on track and keep you more fully in the loop, we’ll increase the update frequency to no more than 30 days between updates.

Thanks for your patience and awesomeness. This wouldn’t be happening without you and we know you’ll be proud of the result!

TeamRobo

Project Update #13: Great News!

Posted by Imagination Station Detroit August 28, 2012


Happy Tuesday, RoboBackers,

Fred Barton just sent over these pics of the last of the missing Robo pieces, now completed—hands and calf, check ‘em out below!

They’re on their way to http://acrosstheboardcreations.com to meet their brother and sister parts for 3D scanning, enlarging, and milling from foam. Then the foam pieces will be shipped to Venus Bronze Works in Detroit for molding and pouring. Really cool process all around.

This is a huge milestone, and while there’s a ways left to go, it’s now a new phase and we hope you’re as excited as we are. The form looks absolutely outstanding.

Fred, from all of us, we thank you again and bow with gratitude from the bottom of our RoboHearts. See more of his work at http://the-robotman.com .

Onward! /high fives now that we have hands,

Team Robo

Project Update #14: Good Things Come To Those Who Wait + New RoboCop Films In Detroit + Boddicker & An Evil Cyborg Walk Into A Gym…

Posted by Imagination Station Detroit (Tue, Oct 30, 2012 5:21 pm)

Yes!

Kevin at Across The Board Creations http://acrosstheboardcreations.com just sent the attached pic of the new 3D scans of Robo’s hands and calves and throws us a double thumbs-up that all Robo parts have been shipped to his studio and his team is at work.

What does it mean? Well, Kevin estimates six weeks to finish scanning, enlarging, and milling all the parts sculptor Fred Barton has lovingly completed and shipped to him before sending them here to Detroit for casting at Venus Bronze Works: http://www.modeldmedia.com/features/venust13908.aspx .

It’s not the last lilly pad in our Frogger, but soon the parts will be tangible and local, which will feel AMAZING. Huge thanks again to everyone who’s helped produce the parts, get permission, and pioneer this admittedly wild process, and THANK YOU again and again RoboBackers, for your philanthropy of AWESOMESAUCE and ZENLIKE PATIENCE as we all will this RoboBeauty into the world for the ages.

From the side-story department, we hear that some filming for the new RoboCop movie has been going on in Detroit. If you’re involved in that please reach out! We gotta get a RoboBackers easter egg in the film to reward all these fine people and the crew trying to get this project done the right way, with permission and quality. Right?

Lastly, we’ve gotten many kind notes from actors and writers and designers and others involved in the creation of Robo movies. Last week Bruce Locke who played Robo’s evil cyborg nemesis in RoboCop 3 reached out to say that he’s a fan of this project, send along the attached pics, and say that, hilariously and awesomely, he goes to the same gym as Kurtwood Smith, who played Boddicker in Robo 1 and is friends with Calvin Jung, who played one of his henchman.

Thought you might like to know, and another reason not to work out! Be careful, bench-pressers. Danger lurks. To be continued…

With love and thankfulness and persistence,

Team Robo in Detroit

Project Update #15: Open-Face RoboCop Sandwich

Posted by Imagination Station Detroit (received 12/3/2012)

News! We have received the following 2 images of the completed 3D RoboCop body scan from Across The Board Creations, with assurance that the super-detailed foam parts will soon be here in Detroit for casting. Here’s hoping that the next update can include a video of them at Venus Bronze Works. Fingers crossed!

Like a fine robotically aged wine, we remain patiently, perfectly yours,

Team Robo

Project Update #16: The Journey Bears Fruit

Posted by Imagination Station Detroit Fri, Jan 18, 2013 3:35 pm

Happy New Year!

Hot off the presses in 2013: Kevin Galloway from Across The Board Creations just shared these photos of the RoboCop pieces rolling off the assembly line. He says it’s among the most highly detailed work he’s ever done. Note that in the photo of Robo’s head(s), the head on the left is life-sized as modeled by Fred Barton, and the head on the right is the proportion when scaled up for a 10-foot statue (after being 3D scanned, digitally enlarged, and re-milled by Kevin).

Giorgio at Venus Bronze Works in Detroit is all set to receive them and get to work, which will likely take the rest of the year—it’s a big, detailed statue made the old-fashioned way! (Well, the old-fashioned way with some 3D laser scanners and fabrication machines pitching in. 😊) Over the holiday we paid another visit to his studio and know we’re all in great hands, and supporting a great local business. He’s worked on many statues and artists in Detroit and around the world, and as a master craftsman and Detroiter he’s excited to lend his talents to this epic piece of pop culture.

We thank you again for your support and patience throughout this process. When this started we had no way of knowing what everything would entail. Like any journey that takes on a life of its own, it has ups, downs, critics, and curveballs, and we’ve held on tight to march things towards completion. Your contributions, positivity, and faith are helping will a wildly awesome idea into reality. It’s the kind of thing that’s so rare because it would normally disappear as a spoken blip: “wouldn’t it be cool if…” and then poof, but yet here we are.

We’re going to need more of your support as it becomes time for Robo to go outside and settle into a home. Several options have been presented and we’ve wanted to get to this next stage of tangibility before zeroing in on commitment. Now, entering this next stage, in the weeks and months ahead we’ll be exploring that with you more. Considerations include finding a host site that can adequately maintain and secure the work—a critical component.

Thank you again. To next steps in a New Year,

TeamRobo in Detroit & Wherever You Are

Project Update #18: Speechless (With Lots of Pictures) 
Sun, May 12, 2013 9:16 pm
Posted by Imagination Station Detroit (linky to Kickstarter page with all images: Update #18)

There’s really nothing to say. Just take a look at RoboCop in his 10-foot-tall pixel-atom-perfect glory. So far he’s passed from you, the backers, to Fred Barton’s expert custom sculpting, to Across The Board Creation’s 3D scanning, digital enlarging, physical fabrication, and assembly in foam, wax, clay, and steel (pictured below), and now he’s headed to Venus Bronze Works in Detroit for casting and manufacturing in bronze. We bow to all parties for going above and beyond.

He’s not done yet, but what you’re seeing in these pictures is pretty much exactly how he’ll look. We hope you love it as much as we do, and we hope you send good vibes to all the craftsmen and the production team who’ve run across the obstacle course to get here, as we all send good vibes back to you, the awesome, patient, and hopefully super happy backers!

Good vibes to and from Detroit!

To be continued shortly..

Team Robo in Detroit

I should have paid more attention to the previous shots which show the normal sized parts in lilac/grey. It is massive though. The bronze version will be quite something to see I think. I hope it is on an OCP plinth. Actually it would be great if the plinth was a flattened ED-209.

Project Update #19: RoboCop Foam Form Arrives In Detroit! Video & Pics!
Posted by Imagination Station Detroit Sun, Sep 8, 2013 7:47 pm

RoboBackers,

We have reached another critical save point! The 10-foot-tall foam RoboForm is now at Venus Bronze Works in Detroit. He looks amazing!

Everyone available rushed to meet him as soon as they could, and our friends shot a little video of first contact which you can see here: https://vimeo.com/73798023

Giorgio and his crew will soon begin assembly and preparation for casting in bronze. That’s a big process, and we’re planning a visiting event and party for backers this fall so you can get an in-person sneak peak along the way. 

In the meantime check out the video and the photos below.

Thank you again to Fred Barton for the incredible design and use of his MGM license, Across The Board Creations for digitizing and scaling and foam fabrication, Venus Bronze Works for alchemical bronze transformations, and as always, to you our loyal backers for making all of this happen, along with everyone out there continuing to will things to fruition.

Dead or alive you are bronzing with me,

<3

Team Robo

Project Update #20: Detroit Needs A Statue of Robocop! by Imagination Station Detroit
Posted February 11, 2014

Project Update #20: On the eve of the new RoboCop release in America, the original RoboCop Statue moves ever closer towards completion!

Greetings RoboBackers! How do you feel about the new flick, have you seen it, will you? We all know it’s a Robo of a different color, but we’re hopeful it will be worthwhile. If it’s half as epic as the original, I’d consider it a win!

Just a quick update to fill you in on where we are at in production. After receiving the model here in Detroit, Venus Bronze Works put him together and we all scrutinized the final pose he will have for the rest of eternity. After successfully imitating an iconic Robo pose, VBW chopped him up (much like in RoboCop 2) into the pieces needed for the molds and bronze pour. We’re in the process of purchasing a whole lot of bronze, made possible by you, dear backers!

Here’s a couple links to recent local articles about the statue and new movie, followed by some picks of the chopped up model. Next up, the bronze pour! We’ll be sure to give you an update then, going to be awesome!

Project Update #21: Quick Clarification: Statue Coming Later This Year, NOT Today
Posted by Imagination Station Detroit ♥ Like

You may have heard in the news today that the RoboCop statue was being unveiled in Detroit today. This was news to us! And not true news.

To be clear: the RoboCop statue is still on track to be finished later this year, and is still in the hands of Giorgio Gikas at Venus Bronze Works in Detroit, but news reports about it being unveiled today are incorrect.

Perhaps the miscommunication grew from the misreporting of an MGM promotion for the new RoboCop DVD where a person in a RoboCop outfit is walking around Detroit and throwing out the first pitch at the Tigers game tonight.

All official updates will come through this page.

Thank you for your cooperation, and Go Tigers!

Team Robo

EDIT

RoboCop throws out the first pitch at the Detroit Tigers game on June 3, 2014.

No recent updates about the actual statute being placed… as of December 2, 2014

KICKSTARTER #22
Hello, Giorgio! Checking In With Venus Bronze Works (Video) 

Posted by Imagination Station Detroit

Robobackers! Last weekend MLive paid a visit to Giorgio Gikas at Venus Bronze Works on Detroit’s east side to check in with his progress on Robo and to shoot some video and pics.

The whole piece is a nice update while we all patiently wait for Giorgio to finish his hands-on, slow-roasted process. He reports that 80% of the molds are now done and that the 10’ tall, 3,000 lb bronze statue will be complete by spring. Check it out here:

http://www.mlive.com/entertainment/detroit/index.ssf/2014/12/detroits_robocop_statue_photos.html
LOTS OF PICS in article

Thank you again for your support throughout the marathon. You just have to smile at the time it takes, knowing the final mold, pour, and assembly is being done at the right place: the last bronze shop in Detroit, in all its old school glory, with an accomplished local artist like Giorgio. It means a lot to everyone involved, and Giorgio and all the amazing craftspeople who are making it real send their regards.

Our very best from Detroit and the Internet,

Team Robo & Friends

Update #23
My what a big bronze head you have
Posted by Imagination Station Detroit

Hi all! Here are the latest pictures we’ve received from Venus Bronze Works showing the fully cast bronze head and some other Robo features. We’re excited to see the progress and have been told they’re closing in on completion. Of course, we’re in the same position you are, waiting for the work to be done. The good news is production clearly continues. We’ll keep you updated when we get another update from Venus.

Thank you again for your companionship on this loooong road to a giant statue.

Guest Update with New Pics, Studio Visit, and Love Connection

About a month ago, a friend and great photographer (as you will see) contacted us with a favor. Seems that after her transplant from Detroit to Texas she found big love in the big state, and our little RoboCop Statue played a small role! The story, which will one day be legend no doubt, goes that on their first date (you know, when you tell your life stories and try not to do something too dumb) the statue came up in conversation. He is a huge Robo fan and backer! She recognized his refined taste and decided that he’s a keeper, so when they were planning to come to Detroit for a visit she devised a secret plan of her own to surprise him with a visit to Venus Bronze Works. How could we say no to that! Plus they are sharing the love with us! Here’s Taylor’s update with Elisabeth’s pictures!

A RoboBacker in Old Detroit

Like the rest of you, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the latest Robo news, and through a serious of fortunate events, I found myself face to face with Robocop’s large bronze visage on my very first trip to Detroit.

Serve the public trust; Protect the innocent; Uphold the law; [Classified]

10 Feet Tall and Bulletproof
The last time Team Robo checked in, the molds had been prepared and were at Venus Bronze Works in the capable hands of artisan Giorgio Gikas, who is in the final stages of crafting many dollars’ worth of bronze bricks into a Robocop that will weight 2500 pounds and stand 10 feet tall—13 once on his pedestal.


Hundreds of pounds of raw bronze


A modest Giorgio
Touring the studio helped me understand just how large of an undertaking building the statue has been. Giorgio put in a furnace solely to melt the statue’s bronze, which is then poured by hand into each form. And after a tremendous amount of work—pro-bono, no less—almost every section of Robocop has been cast, ready to be assembled.


Bronze furnace


Ready for duty
I left the studio knowing that the project remains in good hands, and Robo is nearing the final stages of completion. I’m excited… are you? Go get ‘em.


Trunk mold in preparation


Dead or alive, you’re coming with me


Supportive footwear


After and before


OCP runs the cops


Look at the size

Project Update #25: Detroit Needs A Statue of Robocop!
Happy New Year 2017 Update from Venus Bronze Works

Hello RoboCop Statue Backers and Fans!
We’ve been getting many inquires lately as to the statue of the statue, and rightly so! So we’ve asked Venus Bronze Works to take you behind the bronze curtain, deep in Old Detroit, to share with you the status as of right now. Check out this report with pictures from Venus, the small but very talented crew of Detroit craftsmen who are deep into the process of assembling the fully poured statue.

It’s been a long but exciting process for us; from Imagination Station deciding to go for it, to your support as RoboBackers, to the amazing guidance and partnership with Omni Consumer Products, to Fred Barton’s expert custom sculpting, to Across The Board Creation’s 3D scanning, digital enlarging, physical fabrication, and finally to Venus Bronze Works for casting and manufacturing in bronze.

As we leave the completion in Venus Bronze Works capable hands, look out for our next update, when we’ll finally be able to share where you can visit the RoboCop Statue while he watches over Delta City!

RoboCop Statue status as of 2-10-2017 from Venus Bronze Works:
With The Sculpture’s assembly from the ground up already in progress, the final major molds of the RoboCop statue were completed and poured in mid October of 2016….

As parts are removed from the molds, they must have all sprue’s and vents cut off. From there all surfaces are ground and rough sanded for inspection before assembly can begin.

  As parts are prepared for assembly they are inspected and marked inch by inch for any surface flaws, pits or sand inclusions that will need to be filled before and during the assembly process.

  All areas to be joined are prepared by grinding a bevel on the matching edges to accept a “full weld” often done in layers, making the pieces a uniformly solid mass from inside to out.

  All joints are then welded (again often in layers) to build up material as needed, as some areas are thicker than others due to the thickness changes of the Sculpture’s details, in some cases the pieces are welded from both the outside and the inside.

  Starting hands first, the fingers are attached. Hands and wrists are joined. The rest of the arm parts will wait in pieces for assembly later when they can be attached to the torso, from the shoulder down to the hands. This process is easier than assembling the whole arm now and having to crane it into position.

As the legs assembly begins from foot upwards, assembly of the torso is also underway. This is the most tedious of the assembly as there are upwards of a dozen parts needing to fit together in this 3 dimensional puzzle.

The strategy in assembly is planned with careful choices to make it a safe and efficient process. Legs from foot, to ankle, calf, knee and thigh, then hip, repeat. Comparing to images documented before the model was cut into these pieces, all angles are matched for alignment. Once the legs are assembled up to the hip, materials have to be hand formed to create the joint between hip and pelvis, again measuring and matching to the original images

At the point when the pelvis is ready to be attached, decisions on the stainless mounting armature are being considered.

As this is happening the assembly on the torso continue. Throughout the process, as joints are created and welded, the process of “cleaning up” welds through grinding, sanding and chasing take place. Easier to do this through out the process (when pieces can be moved and rolled) rather than when the Sculpture is a whole.

At this point the Sculpture is well past being 50% complete in its assembly. When the display base type and style has been determined the stainless armature will be installed to match the needed specifications. From there the torso will be able to be placed on the pelvis and with some more custom fit shoulder joint parts the arms will descend and this big guys hands will reach out to their final destination. From there RoboCop will get his head.

There are 31(!!!) photos with this post so I am going to post the link to the update on Kickstarter for those who are interested in seeing them… sorry but it takes too much effort for the now practically dead forum…  :down:

I still say it should be erected here in Dallas since this is where the movie was filmed in the first place.

RoboCop To Find His Home At The Michigan Science Center! 

RoboBackers,

The day you thought would never come is now bearing down upon us.

First, we want to say thank you for your patience. Throughout this entire process we never wavered from successful completion although we did face awesome challenges. 

From a humble thought of 3D scanning an action figure and blowing it up to 6 feet tall to pour in iron, we somehow found ourselves on a path to create a 10-foot-tall officially MGM-sanctioned bronze statue from a recreation of the original suit Peter Weller wore when he played RoboCop in 1987.

The first steps took years, and then when the foam parts and armature arrived at the last bronze shop in Detroit it took years more. Some day we will probably write a book about all of it.

But most importantly, here is what you should know: through your contributions and faith, and through the hard work of many in Detroit and elsewhere, the RoboCop statue has found a home at the Michigan Science Center in Detroit’s Midtown Cultural Center Historic District. 

Now wait wait wait. Before you come rushing out to see it, there will be an official installation and unveiling date given later this spring.

We just signed the paper work with the Michigan Science Center today who will be showing off pieces of the statue at a private event later this week.

You will be the first to hear about an unveiling event, and we hope that many of you join us from around the country.

Detroit is an amazing city. We hope that this statue introduces more of you to it, and we hope that by being at the Science Center it helps inspire more people and more youth to get involved in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). And, frankly, to mix STEM skills with right-brained creativity.

These things aren’t mutually exclusive, and if it wasn’t for both the right brain and the left brain, we would have never traveled down this road, and we would never have completed it.

Without the right brain and the left brain none of us would ever do much, and certainly RoboCop wouldn’t have had the most profoundly human of strengths, the strength to overcome Directive 4.

From both sides of the brain we say thank you so very much. And we say thank you to the Michigan Science Center for offering to give Robo the perfect home. We also thank Mark Dubeau, MGM, Omni Consumer Products, Fred Barton Productions, Venus Bronze Works, The Imagination Station of Roosevelt Park, Detroit Bikes, Integrity Building Group, and everyone else who made their time, talent, and treasure available to see it through.

Too many feels right now. You rock.

- Team Robo

Just in case you were wondering….
The local Detroit newspaper posted a story about the statue finding a home as well:

Robocop finds a home in Detroit

RoboCop statue finds permanent home at Michigan Science Center
Julie Hinds, Detroit Free Press Pop Culture Critic - Published 1:05 p.m. ET May 2, 2018 - Updated 7:04 p.m. ET May 2, 2018

After years of searching, the RoboCop statue has found a home worthy of its status as a sci-fi legend.

The Michigan Science Center will become the permanent location for the 10-foot-tall bronze version of the Detroit police officer-turned-cyborg character from the 1987 hit movie “RoboCop.”

Imagination Station made the announcement Wednesday morning on its Kickstarter page. The community arts nonprofit group based in Corktown launched the campaign to crowd-fund the statue in 2011 and wound up raising more than $67,000.

An official unveiling date for the outdoor installation is expected to be announced later this spring or early summer.

“We just signed the paperwork with the Michigan Science Center today who will be showing off pieces of the statue at a private event later this week,” said the post signed Team Robo.

The Michigan Science Center is holding its annual fund-raising gala on Friday. The head and the torso of the statue will be displayed inside for the occasion. The gala is sold out, but some afterglow tickets are still available.
The bronze pieces of the statue are all completed. Welding work remains and the base and pedestal are being finished now, according to Brandon Walley of Imagination Station.

“We think this is a perfect fit,” said Walley of the location. “It could have been great at a number of places. But this is really a match made in heaven.”

Michigan Science Center president and CEO Tonya Matthews said in a statement to the Free Press that the site is “honored to be the host site for this amazing piece of art.”

Matthews noted the potential synergy between the site and the statue: “At the Science Center, we aim to inspire curious minds of all ages with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and we think RoboCop will remind us of the power of STEM and the resurgence of Detroit.”

RoboCop has long been an icon of Detroit-themed movies. In the smartly political Reagan-era film, a greedy corporation gives a Detroit police officer named Alex Murphy new life as a hybrid human-robot crime fighter.

The idea for a RoboCop statue was born in 2011 with a tweet that sparked a campaign to turn a pop-culture icon into a Detroit landmark.

It all started when then-mayor Dave Bing received a Twitter message from a man in Massachusetts who brought up Philadelphia’s statue of Rocky, and suggested RoboCop as a great ambassador for the Motor City. Bing replied online that there were no plans for such a project.

The 10-foot-tall bronze RoboCop will be more like 13 feet once it’s on a pedestal. It was cast at Detroit’s Venus Bronze Works, one of the leading sculptural restoration and conservation businesses in the nation.

Overseeing the process was art conservation expert Giorgio Gikas of Venus Bronze Works, who has spent decades restoring iconic local works like the Joe Louis fist, the “Spirit of Detroit” statue and the “Victory and Progress” horse-drawn chariot at the Old Wayne County Building, and more.


It took persistence and patience for Team Robo to navigate the monumental task. The hurdles included obtaining copyright permission and completing many complicated mold and model-making steps in the leadup to the pouring of the casts.

Before that work could start, Across the Board Creations of British Columbia and Idaho had to use 3D scanning to fabricate the pieces for the 10-foot foam version, based on a life-size model provided by Fred Barton Productions of California.

In a 2011 interview with the Free Press, original “RoboCop” director Paul Verhoeven said he was aware of the crowd-funded project. “I had no problem with it, let’s put it that way,” he said. “Perhaps I should see it as my most important contribution as a Dutchman to American culture.”
