ROCKET RACCOON Takes Center Stage With His New HOT TOYS Figure

When the first Guardians of the Galaxy took the world by storm, everyone fell in love with their new favorite duo, Rocket and Groot. Hot Toys made sure you could have this awesome pair in your own home thanks to their 1/6 figure set.

Rocket and Groot

Now with Guardians Vol. 2 coming out this May, it’s that time again for Hot Toys to share their wares. For this figure, it’s Rocket’s turn to be the “shoulder to lean on.”


Debuting on their Facebook page, the first images of their new 1/6 Rocket Racoon deluxe figure, in conjunction with the film’s release, have been revealed. In a bit of a role reversal, it’s Baby Groot who is sitting upon Rocket’s shoulder, with Rocket getting himself ready for battle.


The Rocket figure comes with a HUGE gun (I am assuming it’s homemade. Rocket’s got too much pride in his own handiwork to go out and just buy something like that), as well as two mini guns. He also comes with a jet pack, a utility belt, 6 sets of hands and feet (Because holding that gun is going to take some shifting around, of course), two head molds and a stand. Now while Baby Groot is blurred in the pictures, I am confident that upon release, we’ll get a much “clearer” look at him.

Rocket was a hothead in the first one, and that could be because he knew that Groot was always there to have his back. It’s going to be interesting to see how Rocket takes on the role of mentor to his old/new friend.

Be sure to check out more of Rocket in the gallery below, and as always, you can pre-order this awesome figure at Sideshow Collectibles.

So what do you think? Are you excited to see Rocket as the protector this time around? On a scale of 1 to adorable, how cute IS Baby Groot? Let me know on Twitter or I Am Groot in the comments below.
