At long last, Diamond Select have revealed the promotional image of their 7" Select scale Star-Lord. We did see Star-Lord at Toy Fair, but he was shown only with the masked head.
The first promo image showed us a pretty stunning Chris Pratt head - but in a pretty dire case of "bait and switch" within 24-hrs DST took to the Fwoosh Forum to confirm a mistake had been made and the unmased Chris Pratt head would not be released - not even as a Disney Store Exclusive. The promo image was then updated to show the masked head - which is still very impressive, but fans won't forget the other image in a hurry.
We also get to see the Rocket Raccoon - a figure that has been under-wraps for some time. Rocket will be packed in with Star-Lord and therefore may not come with a whole lot of gear - but it is nice to know that across two £22 releases we will have 4 of the 5 Guardians from the Vol. 2 sequel.
Star-Lord & Rocket and the previously shown Drax & Groot are tentatively scheduled for a July release.
A Diamond Select Toys Release! You're welcome! The Guardians of the Galaxy have been one of the most requested additions to the Marvel Select action figure line of the past few years, and now DST is happy to announce a new series of movie-based figures! Star-Lord and Drax the Destroyer are both based on their appearances from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and each measures approximately 7 inches tall and includes a diorama base. Plus, Star-Lord comes with Rocket, and Drax comes with a baby-sized figure of Groot! Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios!
