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 Premier Collection Resin Statue. We are now entering statue territory which is definitely one of the most dedicated hardcore ways to show your fandom.
This statue’s packaging uses the same silver background and fonts from the original The Rocketeer 1991 movie poster.
Rocketeer Premier Collection Resin Statue
This statue is seriously impressive out of the box. Since it is made out of resin, the statue has a great weight to it which gives it a feel of a very high end collectible statue. This statue is based on the 1991 Disney film version of the Rocketeer, and it was designed by Joe Allard and sculpted by Rocco Tartamella. The height is around 10 inches tall.
I really like the statue’s base as it looks like the Rocketeer is getting ready to blast off of the top of some 1930s building architecture.
His action pose has his arms are extended as his hands are pushing the trigger buttons to ignite his jet pack.
The detailed silver metallic jet pack includes the gum that was used to patch a bullet hole in the movie.
The Rocketeer Premier Resin statue is a limited edition of only 3000 numbered pieces. The statue is numbered on the bottom of the base as well as a matching certificate of authenticity.
Where to Buy?

This Rocketeer Premier Collection Resin Statue belongs in a museum or your collection. Diamond Select Toys has quite a few Rocketeer products, and this one is definitely for collectors who want a more high end product at a fraction of a cost. It’s shelf presence definitely looks like it would go for more money than it’s retail price. The base and dynamic pose of the Rocketeer set it apart from other Rocketeer toys and collectibles that already show him in flight. Below is a pic that I took of the Premier Collection Resin Statue next to the PVC Diorama which makes for a really nice Rocketeer display.
