    Best robocop bust on the market
    Barton's bust is like a "toy" compare to this one
    Likeness is amazing and with silicon he seems alive
    Congrats Phil!

    Thanks Zhong.
    I'll be taking plenty of photos in natural light once I have it in hand.

    The paintjob on this is incredible...not only on the armor but the silicone head is full of realism with all these different nuances.
    This is a phenomenal piece done by the artist Jean-Philippe Reuchet.Murphy looks very much alive.
    Couldn't be happier.

    Thanks guys.
    It's actually quite light Zhong,especially in comparison with my other pieces such as Rosenberg or Anubis.
    Armor parts are made of fibreglass.I like my stuff heavy but these type of commission pieces are more often light than heavy.
    Artists will save costs whenever and wherever they can without compromising the quality of course and it's understandable.
    They are producing these high end collectibles for a relatively low price.The work that went into this Robocop is baffling.If a company would produce this type of collectible we would be looking at twice or three times the price I've paid.
    The fibreglass plates on the Anubis is 1 cm thick while the Robocop armor pieces have a thickness of maybe 3 mm.
    The complete bust is very sturdy nonetheless and I don't mind the thinner plates as long as the overall quality finish is superb.
    Once on display you can't tell if it's heavy or not.

    For sure a bust like this with ECC is minimum 3k
