While we wait for the next Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, Disney+ has been trying to satiate our need for Groot cuteness with the original series I Am Groot. What if we need something a bit more tangible, though? Of course, Disney and Hot Toys couldn’t pass up the chance to cash in on our love of the sentient tree.
For $275, you can own a 10″ tall Groot, but you’ll have to wait until late 2023 or early 2024 to bring him home. Sideshow Collectibles is currently taking pre-orders for the latest Hot Toys figure. The deluxe Groot comes with several accessories and interchangeable parts, including woven pajamas, Iwua figure, and several leafy parts to make Groot a fashionable fellow.
Skillfully crafted based on Groot’s appearance in the series, this 26cm tall Groot figure features three interchangeable face sculpts with laughing, smiling and furious expressions; sculpted tree texture on the specialized body. Clumps of greenery giving Groot alternate looks from leafy hairdos, body, to impressive bushy mustache and biceps. Also the must-have accessories include cucumber slices for relaxation and Groot’s drawing of the Guardians of the Galaxy family.
