Sly Stallone would love to bring Rocky and Rambo back to the big screen, but due to his age (55) doesn’t think much of his chances. Sly told Britain’s Mirror newspaper…
‘It’s unlikely either my Rocky or my Rambo picture will get made.’
On another note, Sly and Jen have announced that their new baby’s name will be Scarlett Stallone – Craig (01/27/02)
Cinescape.com reported that while talking to one of their columnists, SLY stated, “I’m not doing another Rambo. I don’t think that I’d look that good in a thong anymore.” SLY goes on to say, “In my fantasies, I’d love to do one more, but I don’t think it would be in good taste at this age.”
So what are we to make of this? It’s hard to say, since we don’t know the context of SLY‘s statements [which obviously were made tongue-in-cheek]. SLY has changed his mind about projects before…
The March 2001 issue of Total Film contains some items of interest to STALLONE fans. In an article titled: “The 50 Greatest Movie Heroes of All Time! As Voted By You,” two of SLY’s portrayals made the list! Rocky Balboa clocked in at #30 and John Rambo followed at #40.
In another section called Best of the Best the following appears: – COP LAND ” An undisputed career best performance for STALLONE.”

On January 27, 2001 we reported that Rambo would be the first in a new line of action figures from N2Toys. At that time we even previewed a figure based on preliminary work.
Now we can show you the actual Rambo figures which were on display at a recent Toy Fair. Click on the images at the right (6″ action figure) and below (12″ version) to see larger pics.
Thanks to Dedrick of D & G Electronics and Toys for the images.

N2Toys has announced that they are coming out with a line of action figures that they called “Hardened.” These figures will be based on characters from action movies and the first figure is going to be John Rambo! The figure looks pretty good based on the preliminary artwork! The second figure in the series is set to be the cop played by STEVEN SEGAL in “Above the Law.” Hopefully we will see other STALLONE figures in the near future — Cobra, anyone?
Thanks to Andrew and The ARNOLD FAN site for the tip!
