NECA revealed their latest addition to their 40th Anniversary Rocky Series. Series 1 is on its way to NECA retailers and is currently available at their eBay Store. Series 1 is based on Rocky III, and part of Series 2 is picking up with Rocky IV. The Apollo Creed figure is a spitting image of Carl Weathers character. He is wearing a removable star spangled jacket and hat, just like the one he wore out to his final fateful fight with Ivan Drago. Series 4 is scheduled to be released this Fall.
Since the Apollo figure blew up twitter, as all things NECA usually do, Carl Weathers has reached out to making his Dillon character from Predator a reality. Our fingers are crossed the two parties can work something out for the 30th Anniversary next year.
