Courtesy of Gentle Giant, we get some new information about Neill Blomkamp‘s upcoming movie, CHAPPiE.

In the midst of rising crime and losses among the Royal South African Police, TetraVaal has introduced the successful SCOUT program to combat the deadly criminal elements that operate throughout the country.

Since the introduction of the Scouts, crime has plummeted, the police are safer and TetraVaal stock is at an all-time high. Scout 22 is one of hundreds of robots that patrol Johannesburg, assisting the RSAP with high risk assignments that would otherwise be too deadly for their human counterparts to engage in.

After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfuctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot.

Working with the original digital files used for the filming of Chappie, Gentle Giant Ltd brings you Scout 22. This ¼ scale high quality polystone statue stands approx. 18.5” tall and is posed at the ready with rifle on the dangerous streets of J-Burg.

Here’s the trailer.
