Nothing can stop Robocop (from glowing)

Children of the ’80s, rejoice! When I turned 25, all I got was the ability to legally rent a car, but then again, I’ve never been a cyborg police hero, so it makes sense that we’re giving Robocop the deluxe treatment to mark the 25th anniversary of the franchise. Today, we’re proud to unveil our latest Toys R Us exclusive: Night Fighter Robocop!

And we all know nothing can stop Robocop — it says it right on the package! — but nothing cements immortality quite like an action figure. We’ve done plenty of other Robocop action figures before (like the regular 7″ and battle damaged versions), there’s something about the idea of a glow-in-the-dark edition that gets our collector hairs — don’t ask where they are — to stand on end.

Check out our package

Not only does our glow-in-the-dark Night Fighter Robocop directly reference the look and feel of the original toy line, but the packaging on this TRU exclusive couldn’t be more ’80s if it was wearing Madonna’s coned bra. It’s like we imported Officer Murphy here directly from that most confusing decade of capitalist expansion and bizarro pop culture, and we wanted every aspect to fit the bill.

So while your friends are pulling up their legwarmers in the 100-degree heat and teasing their hair out to look like Olivia Newton John, all you gotta do is head over to Toys ‘R’ Us to get a load of Night Fighter Robocop and out-retro everyone. Whether or not you ever watched the animated series in your pajamas on a Saturday morning, you won’t want to miss out.

More to come…

Stay tuned to NECAOnline for more on Robocop’s 25 anniversary, more Toys ‘R’ Us exclusives and more on all your favorite movies, games, and everything else pop culture has to offer. You know we’re right on top of all of it.
