The new Rocky action figure features the fighter, played by Sylvester Stallone in the films, in full boxing kit and has movable head, shoulders, arms, waist, legs, knees and ankles.

This represents Pattni’s first foray outside the world of football - a Match Stars range of action figures are set to launch next year, with licences including Arsenal FC, Chelsea FC, Liverpool FC, Manchester United and FC Barcelona.

Ozen Kazim, licensing manager at Rocket, licensing agent for the Rocky brand, said: “We are delighted that Pattni Imaginations are set to launch Rocky into the action figure world.

"He’s still hugely popular more than thirty years after the first film hit the screens and I’m sure these figures will have a big impact at retail."

Pattni Imaginations MD Mayur Pattni,added: “We are thrilled to have signed this new deal as Rocky is an absolute icon.

"We are already dealing with huge amounts of interest in our Match Stars range and are expecting similar results when we come to launch this latest addition to our line up.”
