NECA Reveals Rocky Series 3 Figures

     NECA has revealed two new additions to their popular line of 7-inch Rocky figures! From 1982's Rocky III, feast your eyes on Rocky Balboa and Clubber Lang!



     This year marks the 30th anniversary of Rocky III, in which the Italian Stallion is beaten bloody by the larger, hungrier Clubber Lang. Thus, it is no surprise that NECA's newest line of Rocky figures celebrates the film - and in a BIG way.

     The Clubber Lang figure is being praised by NECA as the best addition to the Rocky line yet. Standing 7-inches tall, the figure will be fully poseable and, as can be seen by the pictures posted below, highly detailed.

     Rocky Balboa is the fourth figure the character has received, so far, through the line. Based on his appearance in Rocky III, this newest figure stands over 6-inches in height, and, like Clubber, Rocky is both fully poseable and highly detailed.

     The figures are slated for release in 2013, yet no official release date has been given at this time...

     NECA recently posted new images for their upcoming second series of quarter scale Predators figures to their official site!

     For those who may not remember, when the first series of 1/4 scale Predator figures was first revealed, fans went crazy! Both the quarter scale Warrior Predator and Masked City Hunter Predator became must-haves for fans. So, naturally, with the success of Series 1, it's no surprise that NECA has decided to move forward with yet another wave of the popular scaled down creatures.

     First up, the Guardian Predator from Predator 2: This movie accurate figure features separate body suit netting, over 25-points of articulation and interchangeable hands. By way of accessories, the Guardian Predator comes packaged alongside a throwing disc and telescoping spear.







 
     Next up is the Unmasked City Hunter Predator, also seen in Predator 2: This figure is based off the main creature featured in the film, but with the mask removed. Like the Guardian Predator, this figure also sports over 25-points of articulation, come complete with separate body suit netting and interchangeable hands. He also comes packaged alongside a telescoping spear and throwing disc.
 





     Look for these most impressive quarter scale Predator figures to be available for purchase in January 2013. And stay tuned for further additions to the second series the closer we get to the new year...
