Ever wanted to own your own full size Omni Consumer Products Enforcement Droid 209 (ED-209) from Robocop before? Well now you can because Hollywood Parts is selling one on eBay for $ 25,000. Granted it’s not how I’d spend 25-grand, but a lifetime supply of bourbon isn’t for everyone.
This ED-209 model was made for the movie Robocop 2. It may have been used as a stand-in for the robot during production or created as a marketing piece to promote the movie. It stands at over 10 feet tall on two hind legs built with pneumatic cylinders. The moving parts have not been tested. This robot has been in storage for quite some time. There is electrical wiring for the hydraulics to work with the leg extensions and to rotate the body portion. It was built very well and is truly a must see piece.
The droid is located in North Hollywood so if any of you are serious about buying and want to go see it I’ll definitely go with you provided you buy me drinks first. “How many?” However many it takes to get me drunk enough to saw your arm off and steal the briefcase with all the money you were going to pay. “I was going to pay through Paypal.” Forget it, I’m not going anymore.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots.

Sales of ultrabooks are helping to prop up an ailing Windows notebook market, accounting for almost 11 percent of retail sales over $ 700 in the first five months of 2012. According to figures released yesterday by research firm NPD, Intel’s popular form factor helped the $ 700-$ 900 bracket sustain a relatively modest drop of three percent and pushed the $ 900+ bracket up a massive 39 percent from the same time last year. By contrast, the total market for Windows notebooks — including low-end budget machines and high-end mobile workstations — fell 17 percent.
Ultrabook sales as a share of the overall $ 700+ category seem to be growing at a relatively steady pace, as shown in the NPD chart below. But while cannibalizing the existing…

Andrew Ainsworth, the creator of the original Storm Trooper gear in Star Wars, won an infringement case against Lucasfilm allowing him to make and sell his $ 3,000 helmets without suffering the sting of litigation. Ainsworth made the original armor in 1976 and now sells it on his site, SDSProps.com.
The case has been brewing since 2009 when Lucasfilm sued in the US and then in the UK. An anomaly in the law, writes the BBC, allowed Ainsworth to classify these as functional rather than artistic items, “under which the creative and highly artistic works made for use in films… may not be entitled to copyright protection in the UK”
This means the company will add new and improved items to its already impressive line of storm-trooper gear, allowing Star Wars fans to, in the immortal words of Han Solo, “take us up to warp speed, Mr. Sulu” when it comes to A New Hope memorabilia.
