Marvel is set to have a big year in 2017, with three big tentpole films hitting theaters: Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok.
With those new Marvel Cinematic Universe entries we also get great new Marvel movie merchandise, including the latest from Hot Toys, which always unveils some of the best and most anticipated collectibles fans can get their hands on.
Since Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 arrives first, Hot Toys has begun giving fans a taste of what its tie-in line for the film will look like. Check out this first teaser from the company's Facebook Page:
The articulation and molding on the individual Guardians members looks on point, the new costumes and body details (like Drax's tattoos or Rocket's fur) seem finely crafted, and there are definitely enough new costume tweaks to make these actually worth adding to collection.
...But let's be honest: they got our money as soon as we saw that adorable Baby Groot!
SYNOPSIS: Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos.
