EXCLUSIVE: Designs For ROBOCOP's Motorcycle

Conceptual illustrator, Tim Flattery, sent us two pieces of concept art that he created for Jose Padilha's RoboCop. They're designs for the bike, which ended up being a modified Kawasaki Ninja. Plus, two developmental sketches that artist Keron Grant did for the film.

Lol @ all the little whiney "stick my fingers in my ears" bitches crying over no blood. You can't see the forest through the trees.

I'm still considering goin' to see this only because I couldn't possibly resist putting my girlfriend in a seat for two hours to watch some shit she'll probably hate.

The movie's pretty good. Really suprised by how much I liked it. I didn't grow up with the original Robocop so I don't have the same nostalgic factor. I think that it's a shame for it o be doing so bad.
Spidey91 - 2/18/2014, 2:18 PM
the movie is good, not great, still one of the better remakes out there.
well, it's more a reboot than a remake, but still.
I'd say it's worth a watch. I don't know why some people are being so harsh on this movie when they clearly haven't seen it.

its not doing bad,all b.o has been hit by storms...lego movie is based on a famous toyline,I think it will stick around for awhile

The designs for RoboCop are so painfully generic.

Art!
The bike was pretty sick. I always thought it was weird seeing Robocop driving a normal car.

Sid- Haha, yeah.. more than a few times in the past few months. I don't even care if I like it or not..

I mean, I love her.. but it's the principle of the thing, dammit. My turn, babe, MY TURN!! Eh, what am I saying, it's my own fault for not being able to say no.

I'm sure there's a word for someone like me.

Rhymes with wussy pipped.

@ yossarian

I thought it was gonna suck to but it was actualy prety good. It felt like a Metal Gear Solid movie and Robocop was Raiden without the blade. Sam Jackson made the movie for me. It was like some one combined Bill O'Reilly and Wolf Blitzer and put them in Sam Jackson's body.

why blackk.. why black.. silver suit is much better but anyways I liked the film.. ending was just a bunch of lazy action of robocop jumping and hopping on the machines.. last scene could have been handled better..
Berserker187 - 2/18/2014, 3:02 PM
Love the bike. They should have used that design. Movie was good glad is doing decent.
DoubleD - 2/18/2014, 3:10 PM
Good movie. Plus it all ready made over 100 million world wide. Pretty much guarantees a sequel.

why the [frick] does robocop have a human hand
NostalgicYouth - 2/18/2014, 4:22 PM
@ckal
Not to give anything away; but he doesn't actually have a human hand, actually the scientist that Gary Oldman plays did some pretty extensive surgery. I'm guessing the reason he made a hand that looked human was so that Alex Murphy could still have a sense of humanity and be more appealing to the public as well.
damntree - 2/18/2014, 5:51 PM
@ckal - Why does Robocop have a human face? Who the [frick] cares? Watch the original and you'll figure it out.
mgeoff88 - 2/18/2014, 5:54 PM
That's a badass motorcycle.

The movie is not bad at all. Definitely worth the price of admission. And the theater was packed; don't know who said it was flopping but a lot of people I know went to go see it. It's kind of hard to compare it to the original because they don't really have anything in common. Two completely different takes. I think the original had a little more of that shock factor but if I had to choose which one I'd rather see again if I had to pick I'm definitely going with the new one, easily ...and I grew up with the original.

The only part I disliked about the new one was the politicized ending based on some liberal soundbite. I also think it lacked a bit psychologically considering the guy lost his entire functioning body other than his head, heart, and lungs rendering him totally dependant on technology and the care of others in order to survive. That is a very hard pill for someone to swallow. He'll never have a normal life or be able to sleep with his wife, digest food normally, its a real eff'd up situation. Overall, I give it 3.5/5 stars. Side note: special effects were awesome. Just fyi.
