    They say good things come to those who wait, but even we thought 37 years might be stretching it. Then, we took a look at the new HWC™ Series Eight Neo-Classics™ Rocket-Bye-Baby™ and all was forgiven! First launched in 1971 (with just one re-release in 1972), the Rocket-Bye-Baby™ comes hurling through space and time for a first-ever Neo-Classics™ update.

    The Rocket-Bye-Baby™ debuted in 1971, an original design from creative genius Bob Lovejoy. Bob worked side-by-side with Larry Wood to develop early Hot Wheels® favorites like the Rrrumblers and Chopcycles lines. Bob was also a freak for anything aeronautic and left Mattel to design what many consider the quintessential ultralight glider, the Quicksilver. Tragically, Bob died young in a flying accident, but his legacy lives on in the Rocket-Bye-Baby™. Propelled by a complete makeover for 2009, our updated version is boldly finished in Spectraflame® antifreeze and features Neo-Classics™ Redline® wheels.
