LEGO Racers - Rocket Racer's Opening

Rocket Racer's opening in LEGO Racers

Rocket Racer is the final boss in LEGO Racers. He also appears in LEGO Racers 2 as final boss once again and is the only CPU racer in the last race on the track "The Grand Finale". He and his car never appeared as a physical minifigure. However, in LEGO Minifigures Series 18 (released in 2018), one of the LEGO Minifigures (theme), resembles Rocket Racer under a different outfit.

Background

In LEGO Adventures! Magazine, Issue 6, a bored Rocket Racer tells Veronica Voltage that he has beaten every good racer in LEGOLAND. To remedy this, Veronica uses her time machine to bring Basil the Batlord and Captain Redbeard from the past to race Rocket Racer. He beats them both and then challenges the reader to a race.

Notes

  • LEGO Stores gave out Rocket Racer stickers for a period of time.
  • Rocket Racer was the only boss racer in the original LEGO Racers game that didn't come in any set as a physical minifigure (until 2018). He is also the racing champion (until you beat him).
  • In the game cutscene, Rocket Racer's right arm is red and his left arm is blue. But in the player select, intro, tracks, main menu and when he gives you his car set his right arm is blue and left arm is red.
  • There are rumors that there was indeed a set for Rocket Racer and his car in 2000. However, this has not been proven true as the set never appeared in any LEGO timelines.
    • There is also a rumor that he is the mysterious Rocket from the Drome Racers video game since that character claims to be a retired racer.
  • Whether Race Car Guy in 71021 Minifigures Series 18 is confirmed to be Rocket Racer or not (because according to the official website, he was named Race Car Guy and not Rocket Racer, and the name Rocket Racer was never mentioned, even with logo RR and the name on belt "R.Racer"), his uniform bears Rocket Racer's iconic "RR" logo on the chest, and the name on the minifigure's belt reads "R. Racer." This minifigure would mark Rocket Racer's third design.
  • In some concept art for LEGO Racers, Rocket Racer's hair is brown.
  • Rocket Racer is sponsored by Clutch Drive.
  • All of Rocket Racer's uniforms have incorporated the colors red, white, and blue.
