Diamond Select Toys recently posted a photo showing their Expendables action figures.
Jerry Gaylord aka The Franchize makes his first, but not his last appearance in my Stallone Sketch Gallery with his take on Sly as Barney Ross from The Expendables.
I highly recommend Jerry to all sketch collectors. He quickly responds to e-mails, his turnaround time is quick and he packages the art to ensure it arrives safely.

U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan reaffirmed his dismissal of a lawsuit accusing Sylvester Stallone of plagiarizing the screenplay of one Marcus Webb, to create the 2010 movie, “The Expendables.” The federal court rejected Webb’s claims of “The Expendables” having “striking similarities” to his “The Cordoba Caper.”
I told Doug I would get a piece from him in 2012 and I did. Two in fact. This piece is Doug’s riff on Barney Ross from The Expendables. Since it is one of my favorite sketches from 2012, I thought it would be fitting to go out with a bang! - Craig

Today we have Jenn Lee’s third (but hopefully not last) appearance in the Stallone Sketch Gallery. I saw Jenn’s art and that she was taking on headsketch commissions. Jenn thought sketching Sly characters would be fun. Here’s her take on Sly in his role as Barney Ross from The Expendables.

News came out this week that there’s a rumor that a potential Expendables tv series could be in the works. Now THAT would be cool if done correctly. There’s the potential for story arcs a la the old Wise Guy series or the current Justified series. Also an Expendables tv series could spotlight a regular team with guest stars for the Expendables movies. I’d also suggest that the tv cast go into the series knowing that it’s called Expendables and that some of them could be.
Of course this is all speculation at this point.
