There's a rather large difference between a cyborg and a robot.

The Six Million Dollar Man, the Original Robocop, the Reboot Robocop, Darth Vader: cyborgs.

C3P0, R2D2, Robbie the Robot: robots.

One has organic parts, one doesn't. And, a major point of both Robocops are the integration of man and machine and the question of humanity.
And what does any of this change about the point that original robocop looks like an artificially enhanced human while the new robocop looks like a man in a suit?
Well. Everything. Since you said the first was a robot, and NOT an artificially enhanced human.
I then said his skull is artificial, his face is left. That was the whole point. The make up in the original took away from the human skull, the new make up makes it look just like a head inside a helmet. The silly robot/cyborg semantics was never the point.

Arguing for arguing's sake are we?
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
