  1. Hi TVTA, I didn’t know Jakks made the Rocky Balboa range of figures, I knew about their WWe wrestling figure range but never seen the Rocky ones. However I have to mention the Freddie Mercury statue, I saw that in a full page advert on the back cover of a magazine and I thought it was real photo of Freddie! The detail in that figure is astounding but sadly as always I couldn’t afford one! Thanks for another great collection.

    • Some of the likenesses of the characters are outstanding aren’t they. Same as you I can rarely afford any of these deluxe figures – to be honest though for the same price or thereabouts I could get a bundle of other figures at the cheaper end of the scale, like the Star Wars Black Series 6″ which are usually top notch.

  2. Hi again, I have only had the Supreme Leader Snoke Black Series figure in hand to look at but it was impressive. It was for sale in a charity store for £20 which wasn’t much cheaper than new. I give to charity when I can but I noticed the shop had SIX more of the Snoke figure behind the counter so must have gotten a job lot. Sadly I felt the figure wasn’t quite the same bargain after that.

    • I have Snoke, a very impressive figure but wouldn’t have paid that charity shop price either. If you have a Forbidden Planet shop nearby it’s always worth checking as they sometimes sell end of the line figures for as little as a fiver! I’ve picked up a few bargains that way.

      • Thanks TVTA I’ll have to take a look at that tip!
        Sorry I’m late replying but WordPress seem to be updating my site dashboard again and I didn’t get an alert you had commented. The map showing commenter’s locations is also glitchy.

  3. So cool! Freddie looks awesome. I remember seeing a ‘giant’ figure which looked very similar and played some Queen songs. And I could tell those Rocky figures were Jakks right away – their moulds are the same as some of my old WWE guys 🙂

  4. Great to see all of these! As you know, I have the ROCKY ones, and it’s fun to see the differences between these prototypes and the final products. It’s funny that they put Mr. T’s trademark gold chains on a Clubber Lang prototype when of course Clubber in the movie didn’t wear them.
