Diamond Select Toys, The Rocketeer (Exclusive) VHS Set

The Diamond Select 7-inch Rocketeer figure is getting a re-release and a deco update. The new edition, exclusive to Walmart in the US as part of their Collectors Con, will include the same accessories as the main release with a more retro paint job with a brighter gold helmet, red jacket, and brown trousers.

This version also comes with the flight stand and is packed into a box that looks like a retro VHS clam case. The set is an August 2021 release for those ordering via Walmart in the US. It is unclear if there will be a wider global release.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
