Marvel is gearing up for the release of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" with the reveal of new Marvel Select figures. Resembling each character's depiction in the comics, the figures come with an interlocking base, perfect for any fan's "Guardians" diorama.
The figures also have character-centric accessories; Star-Lord features two interchangeable heads (with his mask and without), an interchangeable hand holding a stolen crystal, attachable Element Guns, and boot-jet effects. Drax sports three sets of interchangeable hands, his spiked knuckle knife, and energy axe. Gamora has interchangeable hands, a sword, a knife, laser rifle, and two pistols. She also comes packed with Rocket Raccoon, who carries along two blasters. Rocket is also able to ride shotgun on Groot's shoulder, which is a nice option, considering Groot doesn't come with any extras aside from the interlocking base.
Each figure clocks in at roughly 7 inches, with the exception of Groot, which towers the others at 10 inches, and Rocket, which comes in around 3 inches. All of these feature the traditional 16 points of articulation, for maximum display capabilities.
This set of "Guardians of the Galaxy" figures will be available February 27, 2017, and each figure will cost $24.95. The line of Marvel Select figures is recommended for ages 8 and up.
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.
