Rambo IV Statue


“Heroes never die……..they just reload”

Standing an impressive 20” tall including base (to top of head – not including bow), this Quarter Scale statue captures Rambo’s raw intensity, as the “boatman” reveals his true colors to the mercenaries he is accompanying.

Featuring an accurate likeness of Sylvester Stallone as John Rambo from the latest Rambo movie, this amazingly detailed statue portrays Rambo with his now iconic bow in hand, poised to dispense instant justice with another arrow!
This incredible piece of art is constructed from heavyweight polystone and then hand painted to the finest detail.

Limited to just 500 pieces worldwide

There is no HCG Exclusive version of this piece. However if you like low serial #’s, we are reserving # 1 to # 100 for retail customers only. So the first 100 retail orders will receive the desirable low edition numbers!

Sculpted by Edinho Maga.
Painted by Dan “Danno” Cope.

On the Set of “First Blood”

I received an e-mail from SZoner, Herve Attia, who has impressed fans with his talent and dedication to re-visiting all of the locations used in filming “First Blood”.  Here’s what Herve had to say:

Dear Craig,

“On The Set of First Blood Part 4 – VC Commander” has been released today.  It can be watched at this link.  This is probably the final installment. I guess we have covered all the relevant First Blood filming locations. It has been fun to make.

Thanks again Herve for sharing your talent with us.  Also a special thanks for making the StalloneZone a small part of the video!  Thanks also to Raven! – Craig

Sly Stallone Strikes Over Stolen ‘Cobra’ Car

On December 1, 2009, TMZ broke the news that Sly is suing to get back the famous 1950 Mercury used in the filming of “Cobra”Sly first reported the car as stolen in 1994 and recently came across it in an internet ad offering it for sale.  When the current “owner” refused to return it, Sly went after it through legal means.

According to TMZ, “a suit filed in in L.A. County Superior Court begins with a quote from the movie — “Crime is a disease. Meet the cure.'” You gotta love that.  Sly is suing for an immediate return of the car as well as three million dollars in damages since his name and image were used without the proper permission to promote the auction.
