With Marvels Guardians of the Galaxy blasting from the comic book pages to theaters worldwide, two of the franchises most iconic heroes are due to arrive next year in a craveable action figure two-pack thats certain to pique the interest of fans. The recently unveiled (and pre-order ready) Hot Toys Rocket and Groot Sixth Scale Figure Set combines deluxe collectible versions of the nimble, sharpshooting raccoon and his colossal tree-like companion with a veritable starship full of accessories and special extras.
True to form, the roughly six inch Rocket figure is dwarfed by his arboraceous counterpart, Groot, which stands over three times its size. Maintaining the lofty standards of Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series, the figures sculpts, finishes, and accouterments make them as screen authentic as anything the company has produced. Each figure features over a dozen points of articulation and comes with an assortment of interchangeable hands to vary the display. Other notable additions include Rockets signature orange suit and rifle, and an interchangeable left hand for Groot complete with a yellow glow reminiscent of the film. Exclusive to this action figure set is an alternate, angry Groot portrait and a pair of clenched fists that will allow collectors to display the Monarch of Planet X’s rageful disposition.
Hot Toys’ duo of Guardians of the Galaxy collectibles is expected to ship in March 2015 at a retail price of roughly $360 USD. The sixth scale Rocket and Groot figures will also be available individually at that time for roughly $160 and $200 USD, respectively.
