There are many words that describe the Guardians of the Galaxy: tough, witty, weird, cocky, temperamental and deadly come to mind. But all of those traits combine to make the team one thing, primarily — and that’s lovable. Seriously, you wouldn’t be excited to spend another feature film with this quarreling quintet if they weren’t totally endearing in every single way.
That’s why Hot Toys’ new line of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” Cosbaby figures pretty perfectly capture the essence of each one of these space heroes. The original five Guardians (Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot) all get Cosbaby bobble-head figures in this new wave. And true to scale, the Cosbaby Baby Groot stands at just 4 centimeters tall. Another version of Rocket in the line comes with velvet fur, and other variants of the heroes include a flying Star-Lord and a trio of Baby Groots with different accessories and poses.
Written and directed by James Gunn, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2″ stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, and franchise newcomer, Kurt Russell, who plays Star-Lord’s father – Ego, the Living Planet. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” arrives in theaters May 5.
