Hot Toys Does GROOT & ROCKET RACCOON in 1/6 (from #AvengersInfinityWar)

HOT TOYS GROOT 01

Remember when GROOT was this huge lug of a gentle giant tree-beastie, in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.1? With Rocket on his shoulders, against the world together? ... Well *SPOILER* ... he died. James Gunn confirmed it.

HOT TOYS DANCING GROOT

Remember that *SPOILER* dancing Sapling Groot on the deck of The Milano? Well, that is the Son of Groot! And he grew up cute, and "Baby Groot" danced at the beginning of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 too! (Both times, the motion caption of the dance was actually James Gunn himself! But I'm sure you know that by now...)

HOT TOYS BABY GROOT 03
(Above: Baby Groot / Below: Teen Groot)

Remember that quick peek at that "Teen" Groot at one of the five post-credit scenes at the end of GoTGVol:2? Now THIS Groot is who we'll be seeing in the upcoming AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR film, and he's the focus of our toynews today in this post!


Hong Kong's HOT TOYS has revealed today their 1/6th-scaled collectible(s) of "GROOT" - available in TWO Editions: as a Individual/Single character collectible, and as a "Groot & Rocket Collectible Set".

GROOT features figure sculpted by Joseph Tsang, with figure painted by Lok Ho, while ROCKET featured (perpetually screaming :p) head sculpted by So-young, Lee, painted by JC. Hong, with Head Art Directed by JC. Hong.

The release date is tagged approximately at Q4, 2018 – Q1, 2019. Quite a long way off from the film's April 27th worldwide premiere (*April 26th in Singapore YASSSS).

Here are some images to stare at, and product stats to absorb ... and of course perhaps you'll like to check in with your fav retailer(s) for pricing and availability.
