Money Well Spent: Detroit's Giant RoboCop Statue
Remember back in February, 2011 when Detroiters pulled together and funded a Kickstarter to build a giant RoboCop statue? Can you believe that was over two years ago? TIME IS FLYING. I feel like I'm going to wake up tomorrow and be 60 and be all, holy shit, nobody ever changed my sheets.
The statue was sculpted by Frank Barton.
And it's currently heading to Venus Bronze Works for casting and manufacturing.
Soon Detroit's greatest hero will be permanently honored in Bronze, watching over the city.
Now that's money well spent. Strip clubs? Strip clubs is usually money spent that you regret the next morning. But will that stop you from going back? It will not. Somebody should really do a study about the buyer's remorse associated with visiting strip clubs and it should be government funded and I should totally be the person doing it. You think I can't make it rain? I can make it rain.
Hit the jump for a bunch more shots of Detroit's robotic protector.
Thanks to mchl, who agrees they should install a RoboCop on every corner and tell people they have cameras in the visors and see if that cuts down on crime at all.
