As we speculated a few weeks back, NECA have revealed that the Apollo Creed for Series 2 of Rocky will be the Rocky IV "showman" version.
"First look at the new Apollo Creed from Rocky IV part of Series 2 due out this Fall. Hat & Coat are removable #tbt"
Creed looks to come with two head options, and as per the tweet his Hat and Coat will be removable. Series 2 is due in Autumn, and we know that Ivan Drago will likely get a re-release in this wave. One other definite figure for Series 2, revealed by NECA on Twitter, is Rocky himself who is a re-release of their original Rocky IV figure but he will be packed with both head options AND a US flag which can be draped over the figure as per the closing scenes, this will likely make use of the existing sculpt used on the Video Game version.
NECA have also talked about the lifespan of the range and are aiming for 4 series of figures - one for each of the first four movies. This is likely to mean more Apollo Creed figures will be coming for Rocky 1 and 2 in later series.
