I'm guessing that because of the way the helmet looks, i bet his visor swivels over the top of his head into place. Why would Robo be without his visor so many times?
Wouldn't surprise me if it only covers his face when danger is detected.
I like what I see so far. How the acting, story, and music play off the fx will be the tell all. We will just have to wait and see. Example:
Star Wars was a failed project until the musical score, and final edit were added and done.

Looks like a guy in a suit, not a robot.
I'm certainly not holding my breath, but I am curious to see a trailer...
I'm pretty sure that most of you fanboys (like myself) have seen people trying to defend and trying to justify this new design. Honestly, I like the suit. Is it better than the original as far as design goes? No, not in my opinion. Does it look like something we've seen before? Yes, but that's not really a bad thing. Don't get me wrong here, I adore the original suit and film, but I don't think it's fair to shoot a film down from the look of the suit. The suit doesn't make the character. The Character makes the suit. I can assure you that many people (back in the 80s) found the original suit laughable but after the movie, everyone loved it! The new suit kinda has to look "new" and move in a way that would seem more futuristic than the original. He was clunky and slow in the original, and he's sleek and fast in the new one. Now, his right hand showing.....I really don't know how I feel about that. I'm guessing their gonna show a bit more of his human side so he can interact and feel more relative to the citizens. Or some cool story telling about his finger prints or something lol Anyway, I'm not gushing over the new suit or the movie, but that also means I will pass judgement until the movie comes out and I've seen for myself. Sorry if I upset anyone, I'm just seeing a lot of one noted things being said here to the point it's not even fair.
I think most people's biggest problem is that there's nothing here that makes it different from anything else. Laughable or not Robocop had a style that set itself apart. Now he's just "Judge G.I. Iron Knight".
The suit bugs me because it looks exactly like a guy in the suit. Obviously the original was a guy in a suit, but with Wellers acting and Rob bottin's handiwork, he looks like a robot. Like when I see robo's neck and the back of his head, it looks robotic. Take the helmet off and from side profiles it makes you wonder how they did it because it looks like a robot.
The current fx guys got lazy and just threw a cowl over his head so just his face was showing. Nothing about the suit looks robotic. Also that visible hand is just stupid, if I was a bad guy, the only thing I would thing is "target"
Either way I'm going to see this movie when it hits theatres.
Don't misinterpret that statement as me preferring that over the robotic movements that have come to define RoboCop. I love Weller's final performance, but it was only because the suit was not what he expected.
If I had to venture a guess, I'd say they will show him without the head cowl on and you'll see all the circuits and wire and blah blah blah but it's all going to be CGI. Apart from the crappy mass effect suit, everything will be CGI.
Are we sure the suit wasn't a left-over from a Power Rangers villain or something?
Maybe it should have been a reboot of the 80's TV show STREETHAWK?
But seriously, I might have been intrigued had they stayed true to the "robot" part of the original. If they planned a radical departure, I would have thought a combination of techniques would have pulled off something potentially stellar. Using the body replacement techniques from GREEN LANTERN, the actor could have performed and had an unmistakably robotic form. And as cool as they movements were in I, ROBOT, I'd be much more psyched to see them combined with the wildly inhuman movements of AIMEE from RED PLANET.
But, yeah, looks like the concept of "well, people like a guy in armor, so we'll do that" prevailed.
