The Only Guardians Of The Galaxy Action Figures I NeedMike Fahey7/19/14 2:00pmFiled to: Guardians of the GalaxyRocket RaccoonGrootMarvelHot ToysToysSideshow Collectibles12419EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink Here it is. It doesn't matter how good or bad Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy does at the box office early next month. As long as I get my Hot Toys 1/6th scale figures of Rocket Raccoon and Groot, it's a win in my book. Advertisement Guardians of the Galaxy toys have started showing up at retailers across the country this month, putting a significant strain on my financial resources. I've already purchased the Rocket Raccoon Titan figure from Hasbro, two LEGO sets and a Rocket Raccoon plush. All I need now is the face mask for the wife, and this amazing two-pack from the fine folks at Hot Toys. Hot Toys does a fine job with flesh-based figures, but a better job with armored individuals. Groot and Rocket fall somewhere in-between flesh and armor, giving the toymaker's sculptors plenty of texture to play with without having to actively try to recreate a movie star's face. The result is kind of sexy. And pretty pricey as well. Rocket and Groot are available for preorder now through Sideshow Collectibles for $359.99, with a release target of March 2015. On the plus side, that's only $54 a month if you pay in installments. This Hot Toys set is pretty much exactly what I wanted to come of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. If I don't get one, all of that acting, directing, producing and marketing will have been for naught.
