Marvel Studios is expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe this Summer and bringing fans to the cosmos in the action packed space adventure – Guardians of the Galaxy. A group of outlaw, two thugs, an assassin and a maniac will team up to battle evil and save the galaxy! To gear fans ready for this film’s worldwide release, Hot Toys is excited to present a special 1/6th scale collectible figures set which includes the gun-toting Rocket and his personal houseplant/muscle Groot! The movie-accurate Rocket Collectible Figure is specially crafted based on his unique physique in the film. It features a finely sculpted head and body, specially tailored costume, weapon, and specially designed figure stand. The movie-accurate Groot Collectible Figure features highly detailed head and body with amazing paint application to reflect his distinctive appearance, and a specially designed figure stand. The set will exclusively include an additional interchangeable angry expression face and a pair of partially clenched angry palms for Groot.















 
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand - with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014

MisterNiceGuy - 7/18/2014, 6:04 AM
Meh. I thought they would have used actual hair/fur for rocket. Still pretty cool though

MexicanSuperman - 7/18/2014, 6:16 AM
So where is Groot's morning wood piece?
KrazyForKomix - 7/18/2014, 6:23 AM
I predict that Rocket and Groot will out sell all other action figures (all brands), and Hot Toys will erroneously conclude (as have MANY companies before them) that female action figures just don't sell.
Stooopidity to come . . .

That Groot!
Sitterson - 7/18/2014, 7:14 AM
They look amazing! Also, when is the release date? Doesn't seem to be mentioned at all, so are they out now? When the movie comes out? Afterwards?

@Sitterson: typically, Hot Toys figures go up for preorder on Sideshowtoy a day or two after the reveal. Could be up to a year before the figures ship out, but they have been getting better about the time it takes.
Sitterson - 7/18/2014, 8:15 AM
@BmacAttack Thanks for the info!
