In the original (1987) Robocop movie, they use Alex Murphy's body to make Robocop.

What organic body parts did he retain?

  • Suppose it would also be interesting to enquire (that can be applied to any cyborg) did he need to eat and drink? – jim Jun 26 '16 at 16:29

    @jim - I believe the first movie makes it clear that he eats a paste similar to baby food. – Wad Cheber Jun 28 '16 at 9:21

Alex Murphy is subject to a total replacement of his body.

Tyler: [while creating RoboCop] We were able to save the left arm.

Bob Morton: What? I thought we agreed on total body prosthesis. Now, lose the arm, okay?

So what did he keep?

  • His brain and possibly elements of his spinal column
  • His face and tongue (but not the underlying bone structure. It's overlaid onto a metal skull)
  • Possibly his lungs (see below)

Assuming Robocop 2 is a good indicator, he probably also kept some of the nervous structure attached to the spine.
