Sly and the Family Stallone News for the Week

Sly and the Family Stallone News for the Week:

Henry Winkler Credits Sly Stallone…

Henry Winkler co-starred with Sly Stallone in Lords of Flatbush before he rocketed to fame as Fonzie on Happy Days.  Most fans know that Winkler credits Stallone with his take on the Fonz.  Winkler has a real admiration for Sly.  Check out this section of Winkler’s interview with the Archive of American Television and you’ll see,  but first a quote from the interview…

“I studied Sly, Sly Stallone.  He was big, beefy… what Sly really was inside was funny, witty, unbelievably articulate and a brilliant writer… the tenderness inside… just a fabulous human being…  The shame of Sly is you’ve never witnessed his wit.  You’ve never seen him play that kind of humor.  He is so fast and so funny!

“Rambo III” Collectible Figure Going Back for 2nd Production Round

Remember back in November when we learned about the the new Rambo III offering from ThreeZero?  The fully-articulated figure featured a realistic likeness to Sly Stallone in Rambo III and it quickly sold out!  Demand for the figure has been so great that ThreeZero is creating a second production run.

If you missed out and still want one you can order here, but do so quickly because the cutoff date is August 10th.
