Hot Toys announces 'movie accurate' Little Groot

There have been quite a few excellent depictions -- both official and unofficial -- of dancing baby Groot from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and it was only a matter of time before Hot Toys decided to try its hand at one. The toy company, known for its incredibly detailed and accurate action figures from Marvel Studios films, has announced a Little Groot collectible is in the works, featuring three interchangeable head sculpts, special paint application, and movable arms and body to help replicate his dancing skills from the end of the blockbuster.

The toy is approximately 12 centimeters tall, and is definitely the most accurate take so far of the fan-favorite tree baby. There's currently no price point or place to order Hot Toys' Little Groot, although the company notes that Hong Kong fans can purchase it directly Dec. 19-21 at the Hot Toys booth at Toy Soul -- although it's likely that others will be able to get them later in 2015.

Those fans looking for other options can certainly check out the POP! Vinyl Dancing Groot or Marvel's officially licensed Dancing Groot toy that plays the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back."

UPDATE 12/18/2014 9:50 AM: Sideshow Toys has officially put the Hot Toys Little Groot figure up for preorder at a price point of $44.99. The figure is expected to ship in January 2015. You can preorder the figure here.
