Rocket Command Center
The largest piece of equipment in the Super Joe line is the Rocket Command Center (7570). This is an all new vehicle with a definite sci-fi twist. It is Super Joe’s complete land and space headquarters. The Rocket Command Center features four distinct parts, the rear Computer Command Center; the front Long Range Space Module; the XR11 Patrol Rocket; and a remote Allterrain Hugger. All four pieces combine into the 20” long Rocket Command Center. The Rocket Command Center features Super Joe and detail labels that glow in the dark, and actually look pretty cool. The rear Computer Command Center opens and contains simulated computers and instruments for the Super Joe team and is also the storage area for the Allterrain Hugger when the vehicle is in flight. The Long Range Space Module can be removed from the Command Center and with the addition of detachable rocket engines; Super Joe is ready for outer space exploration. The LR Module has a Terrain Viewer on top of it that aids Super Joe in patrolling an area or tracking down Gor. A crank handle on the top allows you to rotate four different outer space scenes, including one featuring Gor, on the viewer’s screen. A lever is included that allows Super Joe to eject the XR11 Patrol Rocket from the LR Module if needed. The XR11 Patrol Rocket can also be used as an aquatic vehicle as it is designed to float on water. The ejection lever is also used to load the XR11 Patrol Rocket into the Allterrain Hugger for ground exploration. The Hugger comes complete with two pieces of detachable equipment, a tracking panel and an antenna. There is definitely a lot of play value designed in this vehicle.
