^Funny you mention action figures because this Robocop is being marketed like one. He's a product.
What the heck does that have to do with character or story?
The remake is marketing him like a product. Robocop 1.0 to 4.0 are all products to Omnicorp.
Murphy is expendable to the company. Lungs? Heart? all disposable to them.
It lessens/degrades what Murphy was. Murphy is being used like he's nothing to them
Slap an OmniCorp label on it and market it.
If they wanted to turn him into a toaster they could have. They're nothing about the man.
Even the exposed right hand is rumored to have a company image angle.
Nobody wants a cold robotic hand to protect a kid. So the hand is meant to assure people when Robocop is protecting them.
