NECA Reel Toys – Rambo Action Figure

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015


This is a 7″ Rambo Action Figure released by NECA as part of the Reel Toys line.

To this end, Rambo comes complete with orange-colored bandana, pants, and boots, and a stylized paint job. His accessories include a bow and arrows, combat knife with sheath, hand grenade, and RPG.
