Here’s a familiar toy we’ve seen quite a few times on the blog, the JR21 X-60 Space Rocket on Launching Truck.
Although it also appeared in an unbranded box, It’s one of the ‘X’ range of toys that is reasonable to assume that Jack Rosenthal (Toys) Ltd distributed, although as far as I’m aware, the X-60 is the only ‘X’ toy that carried the JR21 brand logo.
The toy does appear in TV21 issue 64 (dated 9th April, 2066) as a competition prize, and is described as a JR21 produced toy.
It’s often been speculated that the toy might have been chosen to be part of the future Project SWORD line, like the Apollo Rocket that also appeared as a Lyons Maid 'Zoom' competition prize in TV21 prior to its inclusion to the SWORD range.
The Space Rocket on the Truck looked a little similar to another separate friction drive toy, the’ Lunar Probe’ distributed by ‘Lucky’ toys. There was also an old Midori kit that Woodsy featured on the blog awhile back.
The gimmick of the toy is the front cabin push- pad releases and raises the rocket, which then releases the nose cone.
The X-60 is one of those toys that as kid growing up in the sixties, I always felt it was part of my own Gerry Anderson universe, just like Spacex toys were.
