The public has finally caught its first unobstructed, clear, and complete glimpse of the new RoboCop suit from Jose Padilha’s remake when it started shooting in Toronto on Saturday, September 15th. Two (2) pictures were taken on the set and it quickly made its way in to cyberspace courtesy of ComingSoon.net. Next thing you know, fans are already having a heated debate over it on Reddit, some even going as far as Photoshopping the leaked photos to show how the suit should’ve at least looked like.

If you’re familiar with the 1987 original version of the suit, RoboCop now doesn’t sport the dual-tone silver/black color combination armor but rather just a single-tone matte black finish. However, if you’re quite satisfied with the suit, fret not, because some say that there’s still a possibility that some CG might still be added later on in the final process. One can only hope, at least.
Jose Padilha’s RoboCop remake is set to release on August 2013, which stars Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the cybernetic law enforcer, together with Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, Abbie Cornish, Michael K. Williams, and Michael Keaton who will play the role of the villain.
