YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Still here? Good, now we can talk…
Hong Kong based toy manufacturer, Hot Toys, is making a potted Groot replica as an accessory if you purchase their Rocket and Groot 1/6th scale collectible. There’s only two down sides I can see here:
The Rocket and Groot collectible figure costs $359.99 So, this is definitely not a children’s toy.
They aren’t slated to ship until March 2015, and they are still waiting for final approval
Sideshow Collectibles is taking pre-orders now and they do have a payment plan available, so you don’t have to pay it all off at once if you presently lack the coin to do so.
Public demand for some kind of dancing Groot toy seems to be at an all time high, and artists like Karen Hallion (one of our faves) was even posting some sketches of the character this week.
I’d say chances are good that we could see him on a t-shirt and possibly get a more affordable/accessible version of him in the near, near future.
Seriously, how cute is this?
