About two thousand people collected money for the monument of the hero from the film of the same name
In Detroit on the square near the Science Center of Michigan will install a statue of Robocop – a fictional hero from the film of the same name. The figure, which will be above three meters, collected about 70 thousand dollars with the help of the campaign at Kickstarter.
The installation of the monument began to be discussed in 2011 after the monument to Rocky Balboa, a movie hero, appeared in Philadelphia . Detroit residents assembled the group on Facebook, where they agreed with the sculptors and planned the budget. The Robocop model was created using a 3D scan based on his appearance from the first movie.
Initially, the authors wanted to make a two-meter bust, but when they were able to collect more than 50 thousand dollars declared, they decided to make a full-fledged statue above three meters. In April, a sculptor from the company Venus Bronze Works Inc produced a bronze monument and published his first photographs.
