Rocketeer is getting an amazing new statue from the folks at Mondo. Shipping in 2018, it is now up for preorder. There is a limited edition version that comes with an interchangeable “surprised” look for Betty. Coming in at 13 inches tall and weighing about 5 pounds, this is the Rocketeer statue we fans have always wanted.
Ask any random person, and if they’ve heard of The Rocketeer, more likely than not they’ll refer to the 1991 Disney film. For us around here, however – as much as we enjoy the film – we love the late (yet still amazing to this day) Dave Stevens’ original comic the movie was based on even more. The high-flying adventures of Cliff Secord aka The Rocketeer, fighting gangsters and enemy agents, all while trying to balance his relationship with his gal, Betty, are the stuff of pure pulp joy.
Soaring from the pages of Dave Stevens’ classic comic, The Rocketeer launches into action with his girl Betty by his side! This statue features both characters in comic-faithful outfits and gear with a semi-translucent rocket exhaust base supporting them in the air.
Join these two on a high-flyin’ adventure and get yours today!
One of my favorite characters of all-time, this thing is a must-buy. Each character alone would be worth it alone, but combining them into one great piece is a genius move. Both are perfect representations of Dave Stevens‘ artwork. They look like they came right off the page. Nice touch with her shoe coming off as well.
The regular edition and Mondo Exclusive with the swappable head are available to order now. The exclusive edition is only available to order until next Friday, December 8th. The regular costs $200, the exclusive $205. So you will want to jump on this asap. You can preorder either edition on the Mondo site right here.
