Pyro Rocket Car

Well Bill told me to keep an eye out for one and finally I found one. The seller claims that this one is soft silver plastic and is harder to find. I'll let the experts in Pyro here comment on that claim. I'm just happy to have finally scored one! Should be here by the end of the week. Here's the seller's photo!

Finally, it arrived and I am thrilled to have at least one of these Pyro Rocket Cars! This is indeed softer plastic and only soap and warm water was required to give it a new appearance.

Nice...it may be the first soft plastic one I've seen, and it's in spacey silver plastic too!  I bet it was smaller than you imagined.

Thank you Bill! It was a bit smaller but true to the Pyro brand, the hard yellow plastic driver/pilot has great detail! Never imagined that there was a softer version of this hard to find Pyro Rocket Car.

One more shot with my digital camera, shows a bit more detail and maybe displays the softness too.

Hello all - RenMarx, that baby blue version is dynamite!


I have a red Pyro Rocket Car w/ yellow driver in my cabinet now - and this silver oddity now its way to me.  
The new toy is marked Pyro -but the driver is a mystery to me - I've searched a little for it, but no luck so far.
Maybe a replacement from another toy set?

This silver car seems to have that soft look of yours - almost like you can see "flow" in the plastic.
It doesn't quite seem correct, but if nothing else, he can be a spaceport attendant.    

Last question - the standard driver... astronaut, or robot?

Thanks! - Kirk

Kirk, I saw the auction for the silver car with oddball driver and am certain it's a replacement for the original; as far as the driver being a spaceman or robot I think it's anyone's guess.  The replacement driver IS a neat fit though.
