Super Beaker

posted by Jay on September 26, 2011

Today we have a review of the "Super Beaker" figure released by Palisades Toys as a 2004 Comic Con exclusive. Why is a Muppet toy on the Rocketeer memorabilia page? A quick examination shows that the figure is obviously modeled after the Rocketeer, from the costume to the helmet to the rocket pack.

The figure comes in white out box with the Palisades logo on it. This particular one had $1 written in Sharpie, unfortunaely I wasn't there to buy it in person for that price. Within that is the full color box complete with viewing window.

The figure itself stands 6" tall and has 12 point of articulation. Accesories include 3 interchangable heads and a removable rocket pack.

I really like this figure, both as a Muppet and Rocketeer fan. I will confess that this particular one has been sitting on a shelf unopened untill tonight. A few minor issues I encountered were the metalic paint on the helmet and rocket which seems to come off when you touch them. However, this may well be a by-product of sitting in a hot box for 7 years. I definitely recommend swinging by ebay and picking one up
