Guardians of the Galaxy leader Star-Lord always seems to be on the run from something. Whether that happens to be Yondu, Thanos, or an upset Rocket Racoon, one of his special abilities at this point should just be "running from stuff". The new animated statue from Gentle Giant LTD depicts this skill perfectly.
The animated statues line from Gentle Giant LTD is based on the delightful art of Skottie Young (via Toyark), who's adorable variant covers are a staple of every Marvel launch title these days. This statue, in particular, is based on the art from Star-Lord #1, which featured everyone's favorite team leader running from a tentacled monstrosity. It's not clear why he's running, but it most likely has to do with the monster's love of the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack, because who didn't love that.
Star-Lord comes in at about 4.5 inches tall and is available to pre-order now for $64.99. He should ship sometime in Quarter 2 of 2017. You can check out the official description for Star-Lord below, and make sure to check out the official images in the gallery.
Born on Earth to an Earthling mother and alien father, Peter Quill quickly found his way to the stars, surviving among the space pirates known as Ravagers. Peter’s adventures have taken him from one end of the galaxy to the next. He has encountered thousands of alien life forms from hundreds of worlds, and continues to protect them all as one of the Guardians of the Galaxy! The Animated Star-Lord Statue was digitally sculpted, and then 3D printed on state of the art 3D Systems printers. The high-resolution prints were then used in the creation of prototypes needed to produce this animated collectible. Each animated statue is hand-cast, hand-painted, and hand-numbered with a limited edition certificate of authenticity. Make Mine Marvel!
Star-Lord will next be seen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
