For us fans of the late great Dave Stevens’ matinee serial-inspired comic book character, the Rocketeer, these last few months have been an amazing time. Santa Claus visited the Retroist Vault early this year and left behind two fun collector’s items that you might want to go out and try to pick up for yourself!
It is an understatement to say that I was absolutely gobsmacked to open up my first gift to find I now own a Rocketeer Hallmark Ornament! It is based on the 1991 Walt Disney film and apparently is a limited edition run that was debuted at the 2014 Keepsake Ornament Premiere and only available in stores.
It may be a tad hard to see due to my camera but they have included Cliff’s chewing gum that Peevy uses to patch a bullet hole in the film.
I was pretty jazzed about that ornament being part of my Rocketeer collection but the second gift in my stocking was just as shocking, last year Funko released a Rocketeer figure and I searched and searched for it but had no luck. Until now and it was just waiting in my stocking!
