Replicating the Original Robocop 2 Cain Stop-Motion Puppet

During our visit to Phil Tippett Studio, we had a chance to inspect one of the original stop-motion puppets used to for Robocop 2’s Cain robot. This intricately designed and machined miniature was actually recently disassembled so its hundreds of parts could be molded to create a series of replicas. We chat with Paul Francis of Chronicle Collectibles to geek out over the little details of this amazing puppet and learn about the replication process.

  1. Great video, loved the interview. Unbelievable work was put into that replica! Really hope to see more videos with those guys in the future.

  2. So after watching this I figured price of about $1500. Went to the site, price $1355 with shipping, so wasn’t far off.

  3. Thank you Norman,

    Huge thanks to Phil Tippett, Mark Dubeau and the entire Tippett Studios team for replicating the Cain Puppet and letting us invade your space.

    Check us out, we aren’t your normal replica company, we work with the original artist and the original assets…

    Paul
