Detroit RoboCop Statue Unveils Next Year

Creators of a Detroit statue of the fictional crime-fighting cyborg RoboCop claim they are planning to unveil it next summer.

Venus Bronze Works in Detroit is getting ready to cast pieces of the statue and on Tuesday displayed its 10-foot-tall model to The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press.

The 1980s iconic science fiction film was set in a futuristic and crime-ridden Detroit.

The movement for a RoboCop statue began in 2011 after a social networking campaign exploded in support of the project, quickly raising money to make it happen. 

Brandon Walley, director of development for the nonprofit the Imagination Station, explains the statue "will add nicely to Detroit and the rejuvenation that's happening here." He states the hope is that the statue will stand in a well-known location downtown.
