Love the composition but RoboCop looks like he's gained 40 pounds since the 80s. Is he fat?

My main issue with it is contrast. There isn't any. The red helps a little in the variant, but even then, not enough. If you're more than a few feet away it'll all blend together. It's a classic Eng illustration and the composition is fine for me, but the color choices weren't very good imho.
So it goes...

It's the same color choices as every other Eng poster, though.
