We’ve seen different sides of Groot over the years, from his bounty hunter beginnings with Rocket Raccoon and his heroic demise in the Battle of Xandar to his resurrection as Baby Groot and his growing pains along the way. This time around, we see Groot showing off some new powers with the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Marvel Legends Groot Deluxe Figure.
That’s right, the newly grown-up Groot is getting a new Marvel Legends figure and he’s gained some special abilities along the way. Most significantly, the new Groot has actually grown wings that can spread out of his back, which, we’re assuming, allows the plant-like organism from Planet X to soar to the skies.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Marvel Legends Groot Deluxe Figure is a 7.5-inch action figure of the Marvel universe’s resident Flora Colossus, with a generous amount of articulation, much like all the previous figure releases from the Marvel Legends line. That means, there’s no shortage of poses you can put the newly matured Groot in, allowing you to depict him fighting, relaxing, and, pretty much, everything in between. It comes with a highly-detailed sculpt that shows Groot in his fresh-faced adult form, which, we imagine, will be somewhat different from what he eventually looks like once Rocket (and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy gang) gets him into all sorts of scrapes and shenanigans.
One of the biggest additions here is the fact that the figure comes with detachable wings. That’s right, Groot is a bird now. Or something. And yes, those are his wings because it comes in the same sinewy bark-like texture as the rest of his body, so you can have Groot waging aerial battles with whichever flying supervillains you’ve got in your 1:12-scale action figure collection. Aside from the wings, Groot also gets two sets of hands (one set open, one set closed fists) and a baby Rocket Racoon figure.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Marvel Legends Groot Deluxe Figure comes out in April.
