    Default The Official Rocketeer Appreciation Thread.


  2. #2
    This one confuses me, why I see requests for a Rocketeer PF in threads. It seemed like kind of a mediocre movie from what I remember. What was the big deal? It's been ages and I only saw the movie once, were there other things like a comic or something?

    The movie was only so-so, but I still have fond memories of the character. He's a really nice representation of the classic retro sci-fi serial pulp action hero. And he did have a little bit of representation in the comics world--a recolored hardcover collection is coming out this fall:



    (The comic did come before the movie.)

    Yes, the Rocketeer had started as a popular comic and just a few years later was made into the movie. Also, the Rocketeer was paying homage to the classic serials of the 30's, 40's. Fans of the Rocketeer are usually fans of one or all three: the classic serials, the comic, and the Disney movie.

    I'm really thrilled with this piece. I like the Master Replica Helmet and 12" figure and the Elektric Tiki but it always missed something that holt me from purchase. This PF could be the one to get.

    This sounds SO awesome. Good thing I never got the 12 inch!
    Man, they're going to be doing this, Jack Sparrow, and freaking Maleficent! Dare I ask we get some TRON love? Oooo, I want Tron and Dillinger, and perhaps a cyber world Flynn.

    I wasn't looking forward to The Rocketeer much, but after seeing the inprogress pics I can't wait!
