Underground Toys' puts ROCKY In Your Pocket!
August 31, 2007

Underground Toys‘ latest In Your Pocket recaptures some of the best known catchphrases from the ultimate underdog of the American film – Rocky!

From the Academy Award-winning 1976 original and on through five fantastic sequels, the lovable Italian Stallion is the compelling subject of countless training montages and suspenseful slow-motion fight scenes.  

Sylvester Stallone’s iconic character is the Master of the one-two punch, the uppercut and of course, the "Yo Adrian" catchphrase!  As the world watched Rocky rise from a hardscrabble life as a loan shark’s goon to victory and stardom, he became more than a simple-minded character from a boxing movie.  Rocky is a towering figure of triumph over adversity!  

For more than three decades, fans have seen him as a shining symbol of enduring championship in the ring and in life.  Now, you can have Rocky’s great catchphrases "In Your Pocket"!

Next to come this in the In Your Pocket range are 24, WWE and Reservoir Dogs plus many more releases planned for 2008.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
