Who needs pets, when you can own the next best thing? Today, Hot Toys has unveiled an official at the next entry in their 1/6th collectible line of Avengers: Infinity War characters, an ensemble pack of Teen Groot and Rocket Raccoon.
The Hong Kong-based toy manufacturer's Groot figure showcases the sentient tree in his adorable, moody adolescent phase, which we briefly caught a glimpse of in the after-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It features interchangeable hands, a rifle, a handheld gaming console and two interchangeable faces: one that would best be described as "pouting," and the other "uninterested."
As for the Rocket Raccoon figure, it brings the murderous talking rodent to roaring life. He comes with a new assault rifle, interchangeable hands and feet and a facial expression that is sure to bring to life any display shelf.
