Launch the New Year with this new Tornado Popper…


Mission_Mars_SS_animFor decades NASA has sent orbiters and rovers to gather intelligence that will help us learn about Mars and the ability to land a manned mission. The latest Tornado Popper, Mission to Mars recognizes the imagination that first started in the pulp comics of the 30s – 40s to the reality it has become less than a century later. This Tornado barrel is printed with graphics reflective of the future rocket that will launch this mission complete with logo top disc and numbered top ring. Pick up one of these collectible rollerballs (numbered edition of 730) because they’re going to blast off in 10…9…8…

They are shipping to retailers today (1-8-18) and will be in stores later this week to early next week (Jan 10th-15th). Email Sales@retro51.com for help finding a dealer.

Why 730 pieces? This is significant for the number of days it would take to make a round trip from Earth to Mars and back.
