Guardians of the Galaxy's Groot Gets a Limited-Edition Funko Hikari Action Figure

Groot, the breakout character from this summer's biggest movie -- Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy -- will be released as a premium-format Hikari limited edition figurine from Funko, Marvel Comics's Ryan Penagos announced today via Twitter.

No specific details were given regarding a release date or price point for the toy. The figure isn't yet listed on the Funko website (here are the two Groot toys they've got available).

Marvel Toy News spotted it at New York Comic Con, along with a number of multicolored variants, and couldn't tell whether it was one of Funko's 6" Hikaris (usually $50) or the $80 8" variety.
