Remember last year when the internet worked itself into a tizzy over a Kickstarter that raised $50,000 for a Robocop statue to be placed in Detroit? The statue is still coming, thank heavens.
In the above video you will see the masterminds of the project unboxing the foam sculpt of R.C., from which they will cast the glorious, 10-foot-tall brass version of the statue. After that the statue will be placed in a part of the city that's still to be determined.
It's not the hero Detroit needs, but the one the internet paid for.
Feast your eyes on that Detroit Robocop statue thing
This foam mold will form the basis for a 10-foot brass statue
