Description

The Rocketank is a little used, curious casting. The base shows it was first molded in 1974, but it wasn't released until the 1976 line, and with odd name of Aw Shoot. For that casting, it had large cannon centrally located and was made in Malaysia. In 1977, it got an apparent upgrade in the form of a large missile, with new mounting, where the gun formerly was. On the side of the missile can be seen the molding date of 1977 and the country of origin, Malaysia. But this new upgrade was not released until 1988, when the vehicle was issued with the current name of Rocketank in the Hot Wheels Action Command line, and colored olive. It was also released in tan later that same year. The original version of Aw Shoot was re-released in 1986, in olive, and 1987 in tan, so one wonders why the update from 1977 still hadn't been used. Then in 1996 it was called the Rocket Shot on the card.
