This mini-series exists outside the continuity established in the RoboCop (1987) films. One of the main differences being that while many characters in the film franchise know that Alex Murphy was transformed into RoboCop, in the mini-series, this is a closely guarded secret. Another example of the divergence in continuity would be that in the mini-series, Murphy is not killed on his first day of active duty in Detroit. See more »
At the end of the second part, Meltdown, this quote is given: "The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that man may become robots." The film credits it to Thoreau, which is impossible, as the word "robot" did not enter the English language until more than sixty years after Thoreau's death. This quote is actually from Erich Fromm.

I found this in a clearance bin at a video store. I bought it and gave it a watch. While its not nearly as good as the Original, it has its merits. It actually has a plausable plot, not anything like Robo 2 and 3. It has its violent moments, and many flashbacks. It changes a little of the history, but its close enough for my tastes. I eagerly await the next installment, which will hopefully come soon!!!
