Early Production games (like the ones featured in the promo photo and the flyer) differ from the rest of the production run because they have no "Special" on reaching letter 'E' of 'Rocket' on the playfield, thus no Special light on the left outlane, and no left outlane kickback. Also, they feature a bottom arch with different graphics, different colors on the playfield and the cabinet (while the plastics are the same), and a different playfield glass, being the familiar sliding glass, while later in production the glass was changed to lift upwards from the front in a metal frame.​
