MPC Rockets Reaches For The Stars With New KISS Rockets!


SOUTH BEND, Indiana – 03/12/2012 – KISS is heading out of this world with these brand new MPC Rockets kits! MPC originally produced rockets in the 1960s, and they are back with a bang, featuring the one and only KISS!

MPC has taken the themes of classic KISS albums and turned them into galaxy traveling missiles, emblazoned with the iconic images of the Demon, Catman, Spaceman and Starchild.

The first three rockets to be released in the all-new MPC Rockets line will feature full-color KISS graphics, themed around the classic KISS albums Destroyer, Rock And Roll Over and Love Gun. The rockets have been christened the Alpha I Destroyer, the RARO-I Explorer and the LGSC-I. They will include color molded plastic parts and the paper body tubes are predecorated with images from the iconic album covers. Two of the kits also contain self-stick fin decals.

When these rockets are ready to head back to Earth and the parachute deploys, everyone below gets a view of the brightly printed parachute, covered with huge graphics pulled straight from the album covers.

The kits are ready to build in less than an hour, and are 13” to 20” tall. They look great going up and coming down, because each rocket is wrapped in licensed graphics, and then trails a 12” or 18” parachute featuring 2-color licensed artwork. The engines, engine igniters, recovery wadding, launch pad and launch control units are sold separately. All of the MPC rockets make use of existing Estes® and Quest™ engines already available. These rockets are for ages 10 and up and require adult supervision.

Look for these rockets at your local hobby shop starting in September!
