    RoboCop statue coming to Detroit

    Sci-fi fans, rejoice: RoboCop statue coming to Detroit | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

    Just six days after raising donations on the Internet, a group of local artists and fans of the 1987 cult classic exceeded the fund-raising goal of $50,000 this morning to build a larger-than-life sculpture of the crime-fighting cyborg.

    With 1,500 donations and hundreds pouring in every day at Build Robocop in Detroit!, the group plans to continue raising money until the March 29 deadline to make the statue of "as big and good as possible," said Detroit artist Jerry Paffendorf, who is helping raise donations.

    Classic. Make sure everyone remembers that it was your city that was portrayed as a psuedo post apocalyptic hell hole. But in all fairness, I guess that is today's Detroit...
