Watched the original movie again, for the first time in awhile, and it's amazing how absolutely awesome and badass Robocop still looks.... and how utterly dated and old everything ELSE in the movie now looks.

It's pretty much the only design element that still holds up, and almost makes it look like he popped in from a totally different movie or something. Lol
To be honest, there's very little in the effects department that looks dated in Robocop. Hell, Starship Troopers looks even better than most modern CG. Given that Verehoeven started in the effects field, this isn't too shocking.

ED-209's movement ranges from shoddy to almost-realistic, yes, but it's not nearly as head bangingly stupid as the squibs on the yuppie and Dick Jones going apeshit and the glass behind them not giving two fucks. That never looked good.
The best part is as Jones falls, his arms don't scale with the rest of his body.
