"This is a pretty amazing artifact for any RoboCop fan" - Badass Digest
"The early storyboards are awesome, the concept designs are legendary, the creature is the stuff of nightmares, and seeing it all unfold in one hefty book (seriously, the thing weighs almost five lbs.) is extremely satisfying." - Midroad Movie
"A real visual feast that provides everything from concept art, behind the scenes special effects shots, storyboards, production stills, and memorabilia." - Comic Hype

RoboCop: The Definitive History is a wonderful book that brings back the good old memories of watching those movies and TV shows.
This book goes behind the scenes to cover the making of RoboCop franchise which includes the first three movies, TV series, the animated RoboCop: Alpha Commando, comics, video games, toys and finally the 2014 movie reboot, all in that order.
There are stories on the production, behind the scenes photographs, pictures of the make up, costumes, actors, miniatures and storyboards. The text and visuals are about a 50-50 mix.
The text is insightful and detailed with background stories and the challenges faced with making each film. The first three films takes up slightly more than half of the book. Other parts of the franchise are lacking and split up into smaller sections. More could have been written but I still enjoy going through them because I did not know how big the franchise was before I read the book.
The design and make up of Robocop still look amazing today. You'll get to see closeup the unmasked RoboCop with actor Peter Weller's head half-fused with mechanical parts. There are also sketches for the Enforcement Droid Series 209 (aka ED-209), another one of my favourite characters, and even photos of how the miniature and life size models were created. The way the films were shot then is a huge contrast to the latest 2014 RoboCop which relies heavily on CGI.
Overall, this is a great movie companion for the RoboCop franchise. It provides an entertaining read in the form of a good recap and history. Highly recommended to the fans.
