Check out that intricate wood and foam maquette for Detroit’s upcoming ten-foot-tall Robocop statue. The project, based on an original design by Fred Barton Productions, was fully funded on Kickstarter earlier in 2011 and is nearing the final steps of its completion.

See a glimpse of the large statue arriving in several pieces at Venus Bronze Works, where much of the initial bronze casting will be completed for the city’s unofficial, yet much beloved mascot.
