The RoboCop reboot is currently filming, with Killing refugee Joel Kinnaman taking over as the titular cyborg cop. Some mysterious photos from the set have surfaced over at ComingSoon.net, showing off what appears to be a brand-new model of RoboCop armor. Instead of the shiny metal suit that made the original RoboCop look like an anthropomorphized DeLorean, Kinnaman’s armor is an all-black exoskeleton.

Click on the image above for a closer look. One of the images indicates that neo-RoboCop’s visor can flip up, to allow for more emoting. First impressions: The armor looks a little bit like The Guyver crossed with Matthew Fox as Racer X, which are both things I have always aspired to resemble.
