These days it’s tough to find cool Rocketeer collectibles. While Funko has released some items, pickings are often few. However, recently I found a dew while on vacation in Disney World. There were three that I noticed, exclusive to the parks, each with different prices.
The first was a Rocketeer “Mickey Ear” which is basically figurines of Mickey Mouse designed to be something else, in this case, The Rocketeer. Priced for under $20.00 this came in the Movieland Series No. 1 & is packed with other Mickey Ears designed like Tron, The Shaggy Dog, Jack Sparrow, V.I.N. CENT from Disney’s The Black Hole & even a diver from Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
They each come blind boxed, so even though the Rocketeer is on the box this doesn’t mean you’ll get him. Also, if you think opening the box while no cast member is looking will tell you who’s inside this won’t work either. The figures are sealed in a foil bag.
Your best bet is to check the weight of each box. The heavier the box the more likely you’ll get either The Rocketeer, V.I.N. CENT or the diver from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The lighter the box you’ll most likely get The Shaggy Dog, Tron or Jack Sparrow.
The next item I saw is part of Disney’s D-Tech merchandise, which is custom phone cases, one of which is The Rocketeer. While I didn’t get the price (I figured it would be costly), it did look pretty cool. I was little leery bout getting one of these since smart phones constantly change & old phone cases never fit, so I didn’t get one, but I do think that even if this is the case, you’ll still have a pretty cool exclusive collectible.
Finally the last thing I saw was this piece of art work of Mickey Mouse as The Rocketeer by artist Mike Peraza. You could buy this separately as a print for under $30.00 or framed like this for close to $400.00
While it isn’t much, it’s great to still see The Rocketeer flight high in Disney World.
