created 01/20/2013 - 6:38pm
A new image has surfaced online from the new Robocop reboot featuring what is said to be the ED-208, the humanoid drone for the movie.
Geekscape says these guys will be used as part of OmniCorps' ground troops in addition to the new ED-209's.
Interestingly enough, a producer on the movie compared the new Robocop to the Call of Duty games in that we'll be getting similar action with mention of the drones.
For some reason or another the studio behind Robocop has been scouring the internet attempting to get any images of the new Robocop down - even images that were publicly shot by photographers - so we're not so sure how long this one will be available.
Robocop has a release date of February 7th, 2014.
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
