Hasbro to re-release the Marvel Legends Evolution of Groot set

To celebrate #EarthDay, Hasbro have announced a restock of the Marvel Legends MCU Evolutions of Groot set on Hasbro Pulse.


The Evolution of Groot set, released originally in 2017, was a Toys R Us Exclusive both here in the UK and in the US. The pack contains the full size Groot figure from Guardians of the Galaxy. This figure is a re-use of the original 2014 Build-A-Figure, but has a new smiling head. They managed to squeeze him in the standard box by removing his legs.


Packed alongside adult Groot are a baby potted Groot - from the end credits of GOTG - and a baby Groot as seen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.


The set can be pre-ordered now on Hasbro Pulse (US customers) and looks to be a Fan Channel exclusive elsewhere. It is tentatively down as a September 2020 release.



From potted prodigy to towering tree-like humanoid, Groot uses powers of regeneration to become a legendary defender of intergalactic justice.


Groot gets a growth sprout – er, spurt – with this Groot Evolution 3-pack from the Marvel Legends Series, featuring 3 Groot figures in 3 different sizes. Imagine giving the galaxy something to root for with the 9-inch Groot figure, modeled after Groot in his adult form. Then, pretend to meet Groot as just a sapling with the included 2 1-inch Groot figures, which stand as reminders that inside every tree there is…an even smaller tree.


Featuring 3 Groot figures with movie-inspired design and detail, the Groot Evolution pack from the Marvel Legends Series is an epic addition to any collection of legendary heroes.


  • Includes 3 Groot figures from the Marvel Legends Series

  • Figures feature premium design and detail

  • Imagine following Groot’s amazing journey from small tree, to big tree, to small tree

  • Collect other Marvel Legends Series figures (each sold separately)

  • Action figure size: 1 9-inch Groot, 1-inch potted Groot, and 1-inch Groot figure

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
