These Vintage Rocky Puppets Are Terrifying

I happened to stumble upon a set of Rocky and Mr. T boxing puppets that were for sale on Etsy, and, oh boy, talk about nightmare material: You can see them pictured above, and, if you care to purchase these dreadful babies, you can get them as a pair for $44.66.

I quickly learned that these guys weren’t the only extremely frightening vintage Rocky puppets up for grabs online. A quick Google search produced a host of offerings, especially on Ebay, where they were standard fare. Below you’ll find a selection of the eeriest among them. I love how Stallone’s face sort of morphs between models, and how he seems to be donning a whole series of hospital gowns and muumuus.
