It’s been rumored for a short while that Hasbro would be revealing another fan channel exclusive. A few days ago they revealed that the exclusive will be a three figure pack of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 1 & 2.
If you recall a few years ago when Toys R’ Us was open they had a TRU Exclusive which included these exact three figures to tie in with the release of Guardians of The Galaxy Volume 2 and I was able to snag a set on one of my trips to the States.
I’m a big fan of the set as collecting the figures to build adult Groot was a bit of a pain, especially here in the UK. So I was very thankful that I was able to pick the set up. I have to say I really adore the planted and infant Groot that came in this set and I have all three Groots on display with my Guardians on my MCU Marvel Legends shelf.
The only thing that’s missing is Teen Groot from Infinity War and Endgame, though I can see why he isn’t included as that would push up the price quite a bit, though I hope Teen Groot get’s a release down the line.
This set will cost you around $22 and will release in September of this year. As of yet it’s not available from one of my favourite e-retailers Star Action Figures though I expect it will soon as they do get most of Hasbro’s Fan Channel Exclusives.
If your a Guardians of the Galaxy fan and missed out on the original TRU set this is a must-have for your collection!
