Evolution of Groot Marvel Legend exclusive to hit UK Toys R Us


It looks like the Marvel Legends "Evolution of Groot" exclusive will be making it's way across the pond to UK stores. The set, which has been exclusive to US Toys R Us stores, has now been listed on the UK Toys R Us website at £24.99

The set contains the adult Groot, as seen in the original Guardians movie. This was a Build-a-Figure back in 2014, this time he is the main releaase figure but has been given an amended "smiling" head sculpt. As Groot is nearly 9 inches tall, he is packed without his lower legs which are separate in the pack for assembly once you've opened the figure.

The other two figures look to be static pack-ins (almost accessories). These are the baby Groot we see in a plant pot at the end of Guardians Vol. 1 and the other is the Baby Groot that stole the show in the 2nd movie (my opinion anyway).

The item is out of stock for home delivery, and after checking a few postcode options I can't find anything in stock for click & collect. What you can do is sign up for notifications when the item is in stock - but based on prior experience this hasn't always been reliable.

Thanks to regular contributor Simon who brought this to our attention via Facebook
