NEW 2014 RoboCop Movie T-shirt

He's back to protect the innocent - this time with some new threads. RoboCop returns in 2014 in a new movie directed by Jose Padilha.

What's causing the biggest stir about this reboot is not the storyline - or the cast - but the new Robosuit...

RoboCop (1987) was of one of the most popular sci-fi action movies of the 1980s. It was action packed, well made, ultra-violent and highly entertaining.

What the film makers have partly put the film's success down to was RoboCop himself. He looked powerful, intimidating and very expensive - his look made him an icon of 1980s retro culture. Action movie fans have been voicing mixed opinions about spy shots of the updated suit for the reboot...

Peter Weller played RoboCop in the original. His suit took hours to get into and he lost pounds of water weight every day. Behind-the-scenes photos will give you an idea how incredibly big and heavy the suit was. Peter Weller's RoboCop looked menacing, like a walking machine made of bulletproof titanium.

The new RoboCop is played by The Killing's Joel Kinnaman - his RoboCop is slimmer and appears more fluid and refined - notice he has an exposed human hand.

The new RoboCop may not have been lifting as many weights as the old one, or be able to take as many grenades to the chest - but we hope he's got a zero tolerance attitude and some cool one-liners.

Well, OmniCorp aren't the only ones releasing new products...there's a new T-shirt in town - see below.
