After what feels like a long wait, Diamond have finally revealed the details of their 7" Select Drax and Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2
Both figure look stunning. Drax looks to be one of the best sculpts to date from Diamond, and is vibrant in his colouring. Baby Groot has been captured with the same character that we see on the film. Groot looks to be a non articulated piece in the same vein as the Ant-Man mini fig we got a couple of years back.
The two releases for GOTG2 from Diamond are tentatively due for July. We have seen their Star-Lord at Toy Fair, but are yet to see the Rocket that is packed with Peter Quill. We also don't know if Star-Lord gets an unmasked head, or will that be a Disney Store Exclusive?
We also have got no details of the diorama bases. Having seen the movie last week (UK) there are some awesome, and very visual, bases to choose from - so I look forward to seeing them revealed.
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!
