At the end of November, we showed off NECA’s new Ultimate Robocop that features his sleepytime chair and the official likeness of Peter Weller’s face. While this figure is perfectly fine on its own, it’s hard to have an exciting display set up if it’s just Robo taking a nap.
NECA knew that Detroits cybernetic officer needed a friend to play with. So, during the Summer of 2022, ED-209 will be arriving to give Alex Murphy a workout. Oh, and this 10″ tall, sometimes malfunctioning robot will also talk! According to the Big Bad Toy Store, ED-209 will be $94.99
ED-209 is incredibly detailed and features an articulated head, legs that slide up and down, hinged arm wing panels, and poseable cannon arms. ED-209 also features movie-accurate sound effects and dialogue! Press a button and hear hydraulic machinery sounds, the metallic growl “Warning: throw down your weapon. You have 15 seconds to comply” and more!
The full range of sound effects and voice clips for ED-209 has not been announced aside from the few in the description. Odds are everything that should be included is probably from the mechanoids introductory clip from the first film:
Thankfully, it looks like NECA is providing the proper amount of articulation the figure needs. Sure, the enforcement droid wasn’t very nimble in the film, especially when it came to stairs, but he should be capable of a few dynamic poses. If nothing else, you should be able to recreate his little foot wiggle right before his tumble.
I hope NECA makes a little accessory bag that comes with the shot-up body of Mr. Kinney. There’s a Super7 ReAction figure of him, but I’d like to have something in the same 7″ scale. Maybe even throw in a replica of the Detroit model the poor executive lands on, too.
What do you think of this ED-209 figure? Let us know in the comments section below.
