That potted Groot is very good bonus. Nice work Hot Toys. I pre-ordered Star-Lord from BBTS.

Damn. I think I need this set.

Never thought I'd see the day a Marvel film had such an impact on me.

Just picturing the group all displayed together. What a bunch of *******s. :)

I like that they used the rubber arms on her to hide the elbow joint, she looks amazing!! I kind of hope that they don't do Yondu or Nebula...because there would be no way I could resist them ;) With AoU also coming next year I'm going to sending a ton of cash to HT.

^ Thanks, she's preordered. I applied my rewards I've been saving and she'll cost me $40 :)

Okay, these figures look amazing. Looks like I'm going to have to find a way to work the Rocket and Groot 2-pack into my hobby budget for the year.

I decided i am gonna get the set. Just wouldn't look right to not have all of the displayed together and this way i get them for retail instead of trying to complete down the road and pay second hand prices.

I'm in for the set.

First Hot Toys ever for ole Beek.
Welcome to the club!

The nice thing about HT is that they retain their value or even appreciate for the most part. I've sold off some of my Avengers figures to pay for newer versions of themselves and they all got more $$ than I paid for them.

That is certainly nice to know. Too many times, collectibles I've purchased, well...I have lost my *** selling them.

I completely understand that DB. When I got out of the GG game I sold almost all my busts(except for the McQuarrie bust) and took a loss on most. Hot Toys on the other hand, like Zylek stated hold their value well and in most cases increase.

One things for sure they look outstanding, pics rarely do them justice.

I just got this email from SS:

Dear Collector,

Thank you for your recent order of the Hot Toys Rocket & Groot 1:6 scale figure set (item #902239). I am writing you today with some exciting news! As you know, Hot Toys recently added the 1:6 scale potted Groot to this set. But wait! There's now even more Groot to go around! We are happy to announce that Hot Toys has created a Sideshow exclusive version of this set which will now also include a baby-potted Groot without arms.

We wanted to inform you that we will be transferring your order of the regular Rocket & Groot 1:6 Scale Figure (item# 902239) to the new Sideshow Exclusive version (item #9022391), so you do not miss out on this added accessory! Also, please know that there are no price changes for making the switch to the Sideshow Exclusive version.

If you have any questions regarding your order please do not hesitate to contact us directly so that we may further assist you.

Best Regards,

William Mendoza

Thanos is looking amazing! He'll be bound to sell out quickly.

I just wish he had his gauntlet.... I'm nervous we won't get a Drax until GOTG 2 since we have not heard a peep about him in months. But I guess the proto they originally showed was awful and I'd rather get an excellent version later than a craptastic one now.

The final Gamora pics I've seen look great, there are some posted over at sideshow freaks. I think she'll need some sort of additive in her hair to smooth it out a little and get rid of the frizz but what a homerun on this one!
