Diamond Select Toys Rocketeer Vinimates Figure Review

The Rocketeer is one of my favorite classic Disney movies from the early 90s. If you haven’t already seen it yet, please do yourself a solid favor and fire up Disney+ and give it a watch.

Next year is the 30th anniversary of the Disney film, and Diamond Select Toys is getting the party started this year with several new Rocketeer collectibles and toys which include releases in their PVC Diorama, Premier Resin Statue, 1/2 Scale Bust, Select Action Figure, and Vinimates product lines. That is a lot of Rocketeer. Our great friends at Diamond Select Toys sent us some Rocketeer products to showcase on the blog.

Today, we will be taking a look at The Rocketeer figure from the popular Vinimates product line. Note: This is the Rocketeer film version DST Vinimates figure. There is also a limited edition SDCC The Rockteer comic version featuring a different color scheme that we will review in a separate blog.

Packaging

The Rocketeer Figure

This Rocketeer Vinimates figure, like the majority of the Diamond Select Toys’ Vinimates product line, has a poseable head. The rest of the figure is static and can not be repositioned.

The metallic paint job on the helmet looks epic.

I love the details in the silver metallic jet pack with the gum covering the bullet hole. The helmet is not removeable, but you can still see Cliff Secord’s hair visible from under the helmet in the side and back view pics of the figure above. the translucent flames coming from the jet pack is also a nice touch that gives the figure a more dynamic look like it is about to take off.

Where to Buy?

The Diamond Select Toys’ The Rocketeer Vinimates figure retails for $9.99, and it can be purchased online or at your local comic book shop:

Final Thoughts

The Rocketeer character definitely looks fantastic in the Vinimates style. If you are a fan of the character, your hardest decision will be if you want to buy the Rocketeer Vinimates film version, comic version, or both.
