NECA Enters The Ring With Rocky & Mickey Maquettes


Back in the late 90's, Lipton released a popular stop motion commercial featuring Rocky and Mickey as stylized puppets taking on a new challenger, and going the distance once again. Now, NECA has kicked off the last day of New York Toy Fair by announcing the limited edition Rocky & Mickey Puppet Maquettes. Check out full details posted below...  

We’re kicking off the last day of #ToyFair2017 with a big #Rocky announcement! NECA will be releasing limited edition maquettes (statues) based on a famous stop motion commercial from the late 1990s that starred Rocky and his trainer Mickey in puppet form. 

These maquettes were created working from the actual puppets used to make the commercial. Rocky stands approximately 12” tall and has fabric boxing shorts. Mickey stands approximately 10” tall and features fabric hat and clothing.

Both statues are in accurate scale to each other and have movable eyes that can be positioned in various directions. Each statue comes with a display base.

The Rocky Puppet Maquettes will be sold in TWO FORMS: both puppets as a set, or Rocky individually. 






























Look for these limited collectors items to enter the ring in July 2017.

Get Your First Look At The Han Solo Spinoff Cast


Punch it!

The cast of the Han Solo spinoff have officially reported for duty, and to celebrate, the official Star Wars website has released a brand new image showcasing all the new actors set to join that iconic galaxy so far, far away...


According to the official website, principal photography on the film began yesterday over at Pinewood Studios in London.

The movie will explore Han and Chewie's adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue, Lando Calrissian.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directing the film, which stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.

Written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, the movie will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, Simon Emanuel, and co-produced by Kiri Hart, Susan Towner, and Will Allegra. Lawrence Kasdan and Jason McGatlin will executive produce.

The currently untitled Han Solo movie arrives May 25th, 2018.

Lynda Carter Is Returning To Supergirl


Former Wonder Woman actress Lynda Carter is returning to Supergirl.

Director Kevin Smith, who will be helming the next episode to feature Carter, took to Instagram this past week to make the announcement, which can be seen posted below...


In the picture, Smith is seen posing with the First Lady of TV Superheroes, who portrayed President Olivia Marsdin earlier this season in an episode entitled Welcome To Earth. This episode nicely paid homage to her legendary performance as Diana Prince on the classic 1970's Wonder Woman TV show by referencing the superheroine's invisible jet.

No word yet on when the episode will air, but it will serve as Mr. Smith's fourth foray into the DC TV Arrowverse. Previously, he has directed a single episode of Supergirl, which aired earlier this year, and a pair of very well received episodes of The Flash.

Are you excited to witness Lynda Carter's return to the DC TV Universe?

We know we sure are!

Meet The Crew Of Alien: Covenant


20th Century Fox has released a brand new image showcasing the crew of Alien: Covenant - which even offers up a first look at James Franco's Captain Branson! Now, the question is, how many of these poor people are going to make it out of the movie alive?

Interestingly, this new image comes less than a day after director Shane Black tweeted out the first partial cast image from The Predator, which began filming yesterday.

If you're eager for more Alien: Covenant goodness, be sure to tune into Legion on FX tomorrow to get a sneak peek at the next chapter of this iconic film franchise!

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
 
Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, and Callie Hernandez, Alien: Covenant arrives in theaters on May 19th.

Star Wars Rebels EP On Obi-Wan's Appearance


Ever since the mid-season trailer for Star Wars Rebels was released, fans have been awaiting the series debut of Obi-Wan Kenobi, a character that has been teased since the beginning of Season 3.

Star Wars Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni recently sat down with ComicBook.com to discuss the famed Jedi's upcoming premiere. During the interview, he revealed that they actually had to be careful bringing the character into the show.

“Certainly these characters aren’t foreign to me having worked here so long. So, I’m pretty confident when going into them what they’re about, but you do tread carefully because you can’t do it just because you’re trying to add something [to the guest star’s past]. I’ve always said, it’s the same thing with Ahsoka. It has to be valuable to Ezra. This experience, whatever it is, whatever form it takes, has to be valuable to the characters that are the center of Star Wars Rebels.”

Filoni adds that restraint was also needed as Obi-Wan's appearance on the show had to feel appropriate and serve the purpose of the story.

“There are a lot of things that I could do in Star Wars, and I try to do things that work with the story group to be true to the characters and where they need to go. It’s surprising sometimes where they go. I would say it’s surprising at the end of the day, and I don’t want to give anything away, if we wind up in the presence of an old wizard, that would be a surprising thing to pull off. It’s not the most surprising thing to attempt to include Obi-Wan, and we’ve been, I think, pretty good. The way we included him in the pilot of Rebels, I really liked because it was a way to have him without really interfering, and it spoke to a moment in time for the characters. So, obviously I’ve been very fortunate over the years when we do do these Legacy characters. James Arnold Taylor was playing him in Clone Wars brilliantly and did a fantastic job, and then brought that back in Rebels when he’s playing the Clone Wars era Obi-Wan. I have Stephen Stanton now, who’s portraying this particular, if that’s Obi-Wan (laughs), whoever it is.”


 Star Wars Rebels airs Saturdays at 8:30pm on Disney XD.

Meet The Cast Of The Predator


The Hunt Is About To Begin!

Today officially marked the first day of filming on Shane Black's The Predator, and to mark the occasion, the Iron Man 3 director took to Twitter to reveal the first look at most of the film's main cast - well, the human portion anyway.

The image features Black alongside cast members actors Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Olivia Munn, and Keegan-Michael Key. Most look dressed - and in some cases armed - for business.

“Partial cast… beautiful human beings, good people,” Black tweeted along with the new image. “Also, killers. Cameras roll today. Follow me on Twitter for updates. Wish us luck.”

The director, who also appeared in the original 1987 film alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Bill Duke and Jesse Ventura, co-wrote The Predator with Fred Dekker.

The highly anticipated film arrives in theatres on February 9th, 2018.
