"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

HASH(0x9ac26c90) von 5 Sternen Nice companion for the RoboCop franchise 30. Oktober 2014
Von Parka - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I enjoyed watching the first RoboCop movie and the TV series when I was a kid. Back then, I was fascinated by the idea of a human being fused with a robot. I always wait eagerly for RoboCop to appear on screen each time to see his mechanical walk. Those were the days.

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.

HASH(0x9ac26ce4) von 5 Sternen Could have been so much more. 11. Februar 2015
Von Jonathan Walters - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I was excited to finally get my hands on this book, but I have to admit that I'm fairly disappointed in it. While it does contain a lot of good behind-the-scenes information and pictures from the original 1987 film, the rest of the book feels incomplete in comparison, and not as much effort is placed on the sequels or on the non-film Robocop media. It seems to me that there was a lot of missed opportunities with this book, but despite the shortcomings it's still a great coffee table read and a worthy addition to any Robocop fan's library.

HASH(0x9c696930) von 5 Sternen There's a fairly long section on the new remake but it reads like a press packet 18. November 2014
Von Mike Hurst - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Very disappointing book - way too short to include any new information, just brief potted histories of the movies and the TV shows, no depth, no revelations and no controversy. Everyone knows Peter Weller freaked out about the suit design and threatened to quit but that story is not included in here. There's a fairly long section on the new remake but it reads like a press packet, with everybody gushing about how wonderful the remake will be and how much they enjoyed working together. Even the casual fan heard rumors that it was a deeply divided and difficult process - with the director at one point saying publicly that it was the worst experience of his life. I realize that in the end the remake was quite well regarded but it still would have been interesting to read the real behind the scenes story. NONE of it comes across in this brief and pointless pamphlet of a book.

Von JMDiablo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Beautifully illustrated book. Very informative. Nice selection of photos. Only drawback, they could have focused a little more, on the supporting cast of the original. Still, highly recommended, I love it.

HASH(0x9c6967c8) von 5 Sternen Fans of the franchise will want to pick this one up! 5. Februar 2015
Von Beyond The Realms - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a book that any fan of the series should pick up! It covers ALL of the history of Robocop, from the inception of the first film, all the way through the 2014 remake. It even has a section about the comics and merchandise that the franchise has spawned. It's filled with gorgeous full colored photos, storyboards and ad campaigns throughout. The only reason I didn't give it a solid 5/5 is because while the book does spend a great deal of time, diving into the history of the original film (nearly half of the book), the sequels were kind of rushed through and didn't really get too deep into the making of either film. I realize most people would mainly want to hear the most about the first film and I'm certainly not complaining, I just wish there could have been a little more to the chapters on the sequels. Regardless, this is a VERY well put together book made by a fan. It's presentation and layout is thoroughly professional and on par with any other book of its ilk that I have seen.
