I agree with the second

I agree with the second part, as long as it maintained its water-powered flight capabilities.

The unhappy face makes it

The unhappy face makes it look more like a conehead jet from G1 Transformers.

Redundant

JoshB!

Super cool review! I totally forgot about these water rockets, they were awful! Looking back isn't the water a bit redundant? Couldn't they just do the same thing with compressed air?! They would sell us kids anything! LOl

I love the Jumbo appeal of the head, wish there was the rest of the body to go with it. I would be surprised if a Jumbo turns up with this "Rocket" in some far dusty corner of Korea or Italia!

HG Toys is a long-time

HG Toys (Harret-Gilmar) was a long-time veteran of novelty toys based on licensed properties, going back to the 50's with things like puzzles, plastic gun and badge sets, and outdoor toys like this. These are sometimes known as "rack toys" since they are usually found on a rack in a supermarket or thrift store.

They went under in 1988, Voltron being among their final licenses.

I remember these things.

I remember these things. Yeah, the package wasn't messing around when it said not to use hot water. Fun times in the hospital burn ward!
