Rambo Sculpture Selling Out!

Last week I posted about the Rambo statue from Hollywood Collectibles Group being available for pre-order. Shortly after the post, the following e-mail arrived:
+++++

Hi Craig,

Thanks for that!

The statue is now getting very close to being sold out for the whole production run.

I have a pre production sample from the factory & it looks great - just like the paint master. So it is now in production.

So if any of your guys want one with the discount, they need to be quick! This has sold through very quickly and I would imagine will sell for more down the line on the secondary market. Especially when Rambo 5 comes out!

Best,

Mark
+++++
Remember SZONErs, to get your discount enter "R412" (case sensitive for the "R") when ordering. Thanks to Mark and the great folks at Hollywood Collectibles Group for hooking us up! - Craig

Sly as The Dark Knight

Frank Miller, the genius behind such comic book classics as "Batman: Year One," "The Dark Knight Returns," "Sin City," and many other classic tales has been riding high on the success of movie adaptations of his work. Miller recently told a reporter that if "The Dark Knight Returns" was to make it to the big screen, he'd love to see Sylvester Stallone in the title role. Miller was quoted as saying, "I loved 'Rocky Balboa.' This wounded warrior, that's what Batman is in 'Dark Knight Returns'... Just that mouth of his, the scowl and the way it would look in a mask."

Of course this is just speculation on Miller's part. I can't imagine that Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" would be heading for the big screen at this point due to the fact that Christopher Nolan's version did so well. What would be cool though is for an animated "The Dark Knight Returns" be made using Miller's designs and story. Even if it wasn't done for theatrical release, as long as it wasn't geared down for little kids, it could work. And you know you'd love to hear Stallone's voice coming from The Dark Knight. This would be a great project for HBO or Showtime, or even FX.

PS - And, you just know I'd love to see Miller and Stallone working on any project!

Rambo Sculpture Available

The ad above appears in the August 2008 issue of Previews which goes out to comic and specialty shops throughout the USA.

I'm especially proud of this piece since the original sculpture first appeared on the StalloneZone. I was then contacted by Hollywood Collectibles and asked if I could put them in touch with Edhino, the artist who created the piece. I did and the rest is history.

If you're interested in getting one for yourself, get your order in soon! - Craig

Rambo V Mentioned

At the end of this article at The Hollywood Reporter.com, Jay A. Fernandez lists movies that are in production at Lions Gate. He says we can look forward to:
  • "Warrior," which Gavin O'Connor co-wrote and will direct;
  • "Conan," a fast-tracked project with multiple scripts in the works;
  • "Severance Package," with Brett Simon writing and directing;
  • "Rambo V," to be written and directed by Sylvester Stallone;
  • "Korean Wedding" from writer Jason Filardi; and
  • "Kane & Lynch," a video game adaptation that will star Bruce Willis.
Obviously, the "Rambo" news excites me the most, but I also look forward to seeing what they do with "Conan" and "Severance Package" [I really enjoyed the novel]. - Craig
