    Bloodsport was definitely one of my first, dad had that shit on VHS. Such a classic and even though I love Cyborg I fully get why Bloodsport is basically considered the universal JCVD best.

    That Hard Target one definitely does look like fanart but they should buy it and use it lol. It rules.

    I love the Troma films, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. and Toxie are some of my faves!

    God, I love Melinda. Curiously this one doesn't seem to have that many alternates. Though with an image that iconic you really don't need any others.

    We've gotten this far and no mention of the brilliant original Elm Street one sheets.
