NECA’s Classic Video Game Appearance Robocop Revealed!
October 23, 2013

First came the Classic Video Game Jason SDCC Exclusive action figure. Then, Classic Video Game Freddy… Are we gonna make a habit of this?

Heck yeah!

Feast your eyes on NECA’s newest family member, straight from the ’80s with none of the bad fashion and all of the attitude… Classic Video Game Robocop!

WARNING: If you never played the classic side-scroller, which hit the NES in 1989, this may be your first look at the unusual coloring scheme. Hey, it was the ’80s.

Check out that packaging!  I love the “vintage” Reel Toys logo.  This is a great way to refresh a figure.

Robocop Classic Video Game Appearance Action Figure

 

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    People please; stop buying these annoying repaints.
    Neca has to cut this lazy crap out and make new products.

  • What if we like the repaint? I don’t currently have a neca robocop and think this one looks great. we still get plenty of new things from them, so I don’t see the problem. I will get any video game inspired NECA figures. I’m hoping they make Predator next.
