It would be hard for us to like a robot villain more than ED-209. Sure some others spring to mind, like the original Soundwave, the Invid, and even the O.G. Cylons, but ED-209 kicks human ass in ways the others just can’t. The design of the Robocop-battling Enforcement Droid is just so innovative and sinister, it’s impossible to beat. NECO’s 10-inch deluxe action figure of ED-209 is one of the best we’ve seen, highly detailed and loaded with articulated head, legs that slide up and down, hinged arm wing panels, poseable cannon arms, and a pop-out rocket launcher on the right arm. Plus, the figure is augmented with electronic sound effects — easily button triggered. The screen-accurate effects and dialogue include hydraulic machinery sounds, guttural metal growls and the famed last warning: “Throw down your weapon; you have 15 seconds to comply.” As you know, it’s pointless to heed ED-209’s commands as he’s still likely to fill you with high caliber lead, but at least it’s worth a try. NECA’s also figure comes packaged in a deluxe closed box for easy display — pick it up now for $70 before you head to the reboot next week.
