First Look at the Action Figures for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

     February 13, 2014


We’ll hopefully be getting the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy very soon, but in the meantime we’ll have to settle for another take on the police lineup that’s run through the concept art, the live-action shot, and now the action figures.  In plastic form we now have (from left to right) Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel).  The figures are from Hasbro and measure around 6-inches except for Rocket, who’s a little shorter, and Groot, who’s a little taller.  As for the quality, it’s probably best to look past the accuracy of the faces and instead look at the overall detail in the clothes and accessories.  I’m particularly impressed with the markings on Drax, and I hope the mass-produced paint-job does justice to this official image.

Hit the jump to check out the images; the figures will be released in July.  Guardians of the Galaxy opens August 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy.  An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the universe.  To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits – Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer.  But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.  Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

      Right! If they don’t show it for the ALL-STAR game then they have no chance at all. I hope they don’t skip another world-wide audience.

        Probably going to be closer to Captain America. At least they are being patient with the first footage release as opposed to ASM2, which settled for a half-baked product. I think they want to get the look perfect because making GotG is a gamble as is.

        I’m skeptical about the look of this movie from the Thor post credits scene. Too 70s esq as if it wants to recreate the original star wars. not even star wars tried to recreate the same feel as the original star wars. It’s just too distracting.

    Isn’t Gamora meant to be sexy?

      Aren’t racoons meant to be naked?

    This movie is going to be so epic.

    Rocket Raccoon and Groot are the only action figures anyone will ever need.

    • Johnny Bubonic

      You have to buy the other five figures to get Groot because they each contain one piece of the Groot figure that you have to assemble yourself.
