It’s the sports drama that launched a thousand sequels: Rocky, the story of down-on-his-luck Philadelphia southpaw Rocky Balboa’s quest to beat heavyweight boxing champion Apollo Creed in a title bout. To prepare, Rocky engages in an endless series of grueling physical challenges: he runs through the streets; he exercises while holding bricks; he punches meat; he boxes; he does push-ups; most memorably, he sprints up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Mego pays homage to that iconic movie scene with their 8" Rocky Balboa figure in his training sweatsuit exclusively available at ZLC Collectibles.
About MEGO Corporation
Originally founded in 1954 by Dave Abrams, Marty Abrams, now commonly known as 'the father of action figures,' took the helm of the company in 1971 and shifted the direction to licensed action figures. He included the 'World’s Greatest Super Heroes' line), celebrity dolls, and the Micronauts toy line. Mego became famous for its 8-inch scale figures with interchangeable bodies. Eventually, this became an industry standard.
Mego Corporation re-launched in 2018 with a partnership between Marty Abrams and Joel Rosenzweig, focusing on 8-inch Action figures and launching with popular licenses from CBS, Warner Brothers, Sony, and Epic.
