RoboCop shall not be denied. Not if the denizens of the internet have anything to say about it, at least. Even though Detroit’s mayor already rejected plans for a RoboCop statue, that didn’t stop concerned citizens from uniting against the powers that be to raise the money themselves. Whether the statue will be erected is still up in air, though.
I happen to think that this is awesome. As the Kickstarter points out, Philly has a statue of Rocky, so why not? Plus, there are statues of fictional characters/beings all over the world, just none as awesome as RoboCop.
Alternatively, if they want to put up a statue of RowBoat Cop, I’m OK with that, too.
