Baby Groot stole plenty of scenes in this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And now, you can bring the adorable Marvel Cinematic Universe character home with you, thanks to a new figure from Sideshow.
The high-end collectible company recently unveiled their life-size Baby Groot Maquette, which you can check out in our gallery.
The figure is made in partnership with Legacy Effects, which did character design work on Vol. 2. You can read the official description for the figure below.
"Somebody has to look after him! Sideshow in partnership with Legacy Effects is proud to present the definitive Baby Groot Maquette, sprouting right from the work of the film-makers to your Marvel collection.
Lovingly sculpted and painted by Legacy Effects, the creative minds behind the initial character design work for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, Groot stands fully realized in Life-Size on top of a spaceship base, which includes a light-up feature. He stands 11” tall and has been faithfully recreated with intricate tree texture on his detailed bark-like body based on his latest cinematic appearance."
