SKU: 12105 Category:


In the near future, Detroit, Michigan is on the verge of collapse due to financial ruin and unchecked crime. The mega-corporation Omni Consumer Products (OCP) enters into a contract with the city to run the police force. OCP plans to demolish “Old Detroit” and redevelop it as a high-end utopia called “Delta City.” To address the city’s crime, OCP tests several projects to engineer robotic law enforcement. With Delta City’s construction scheduled to begin within months, the OCP Chairman (Dan O’Herlihy) immediately advances an alternative put forth by an ambitious, middle-ranking executive named Bob Morton (Miguel Ferrer). Morton calls his cyborg project: “RoboCop.” Veteran police officer, Alex J. Murphy (Peter Weller), is transferred to a new precinct in Old Detroit and is partnered with Officer Ann Lewis (Nancy Allen). On their first patrol, they chase down a team of miscreants led by crime boss, Clarence Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith), to an abandoned steel mill. After Lewis is knocked unconscious by one of the gang, the rest of Boddicker’s thugs corner Murphy and brutally murder him. Murphy is pronounced dead at the hospital, and OCP subsequently harvests his bodily remains to construct the first RoboCop. RoboCop single-handedly deals with violent crime in the city according to three simple directives programmed by the engineers (Serve the public trust, Protect the innocent, and Uphold the law) along with a fourth, classified directive. The RoboCop project is hailed by the media, and Morton is promoted to vice president (which draws the ire of Jones). However, unbeknownst to the OCP engineers, remnants of RoboCop’s life as Murphy have survived the memory wipe, including brief glimpses of his wife and son and the habit of twirling his gun before holstering it.
