Since debuting in the post-credits portion of 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy," Baby Groot has become a sensation. His adorableness in the first trailer for "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" grabbed attention and had plenty of people wishing for the diminutive hero to be transformed into a toy. Now, as Entertainment Weekly has revealed, that wish will soon come true.
Hasbro will soon release a new interactive figure called Dancing Groot based off the character's appearance in the upcoming Marvel movie. The 11.5-inch electronic figure, which retails for $34.99, will light up and dance to a song from the upcoming film's soundtrack, "Come a Little Bit Closer." The packaging also says that Groot "dances to your music," so it's also possible that he'll be able to cut a rug to whatever tune you play within his proximity.
Dancing Groot will arrive in stores this spring.
Opening May 5, 2017, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki and Kurt Russell.
