New Rocky Balboa figure in NECA’s eight-inch movie toy collection

When the impending arrival of this eight-inch Rocky figure was announced this past summer, toy-heads raved! Now, NECA has finally presented us with the protagonist of the illustriously received film series. This imagination of Rocky Balboa as played by Sylvester Stallone is clad in custom-tailored fabric clothing, true to the standard set by some of the first articulated action figures of the famed decade of the ’70s.

Here, Rocky dons a grey sweatsuit for his supreme run through the Philly streets, and features a mid-jog expression of exertion for maximum real-life effect. His sculpted hands are clenched in fists and wrapped in tape, totally ready for action. Balboa stands eight inches tall and is an essential for any avid Rocky buff. Digging the movie figurines? Check out the new Ghost Face from Scream and Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, too!

 

Through crazy motivation and intense hard work, Rocky proves himself to be a legendary fighter.

JOHN RAMBO

Looking as he does in FIRST BLOOD, this 6-inch figure of John Rambo is an awesome addition to Neca’s super realistic line.

Looking almost too much like Sly Stallone (seriously, this thing is really detailed), this fully articulated Rambo figure is a stunner and one that fans will definitely want to add to their collection. It’s a great item based on a classic film and it’s already in-stock and ready to go!

JOHN RAMBO by Enterbay

Based on his look in RAMBO III, this 12-inch John Rambo figure is yet another stunning creation from Enterbay.

An import from Hong Kong, the action hero is immortalized in the best possible way, boasting one of the best likenesses ever, plus 25 points of articulation and tons of accessories (including a watch, a jade Buddha pendant and some great clothing options). Order now and Rambo ships out in November!

The EXPENDABLES Figures

Barney Ross, Gunnar Jensen and Hale Caesar make up the very first 6-inch figures based on the EXPENDABLES films.

Each one boasts an awesome likeness, fantastic details and, of course, some incredibly sweet weaponry– ¬†pretty much exactly what you’d expect from these guys. Hopefully we can expect them to be joined by the rest of the crew in the coming months. Order these guys individually or as a set of three and they ship out in December

THE EXPENDABLES – Sequel Already in the Works!

The Hollywood Reporter has great news for anyone who loved this weekend’s number one flick, The Expendables (read: my mother, who adored it): It’s going to be getting a sequel!


At the cusp of a fifth decade of action-movie mayhem, Sylvester Stallone says his No. 1 opening with “The Expendables” ranks among his top career thrills. The muscle-bound multihyphenate chewed the fat with THR’s Carl DiOrio about the successful launch of the Lionsgate-distributed picture, which follows the exploits of a group of foreign mercenaries featuring some of the past decades’ biggest action stars.

THR: So “The Expendables” opened bigger than anything else you have directed. It seems you’re still setting personal bests.

Stallone: I didn’t do this all by myself. It was a movie about teamwork, and the team helped make it a success. I always say that if you are a star — even a faded star — the light never goes out. You just need to rekindle it.

THR: Have you written a script for a sequel to ‘The Expendables’?

Stallone: It’s plotted out in my mind’s eye. I believe this group has to continue to evolve; it just can’t become the same people. So how do you get new people introduced into the group, and how do you have some of the other people leaving? Those are the challenges.

THR: So the challenges remain, eh?

Stallone: My proudest moment ever was not “Rocky,” it was the last Rocky picture, “Rocky Balboa.” To be able to meet the challenge of completing that series after all these years, that was great. But this one here tops that — not in an emotional way but for excitement. This should have never happened. (Producer) Avi Lerner really took a big gamble on me with this when nobody else would. I know because I heard about it every day! He kept worrying about the reviews.

THR: ‘The Expendables’ was never going to be a critical darling.

Stallone: Most action films tend to rub people the wrong way. This is not to disparage critics, but the more physical and brutal an action film is, the least well it is received. It’s actually a barometer I use. That, and how many times I hurt myself.

THR: Things turned out well enough though.

Stallone: I never thought we would win this weekend, as we were up against some tough competition. I told Lionsgate and (CEO) Jon Feltheimer and Avi that I’m so grateful how those guys just dug in. Lionsgate hung tough and opened the purses. The campaign worked because it was honest. What you saw in the campaign was what you got. This movie is pure escapism. You just buckle up and enjoy a rocket ship ride down memory lane.
