Available as single collectibles and as a pair, Hot Toys announces their ROCKET RACCOON and GROOT in 1/6th-scale, and to-scale with each other too! Hopefully we'll get to see the rest of the core team members from GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and you folks should start saving up if you intend to get the entire team! And will folks at the coming San Diego Comic Con 2014 (July 24-27) get to see them displayed in person? :)
HOT TOYS PRESS: "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.

New Character Posters for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY sees a spotlight on it's sub-characters, with Ronan And Nebula from director James Gun, and Yondu, Nova Prime and Corpsman Dey swiped from SlashFilm.
The Official Japanese Trailer for "BIG HERO 6" has more previously unseen scenes, and provides a slightly more sombre start of the story, and you can see the difference in approaches for different countries, IMHO … alas this particular trailer is in Japanese language with no English subtitles … but in a way, you don't really need them to see what has happened - a testament to the story telling, if even for a minute and a half :)
