Marvel Legends GOTG Wave 2 Figures Amazon Listings!

We’ve been waiting over two a half years for this week to arrive (well, at least I have, I don’t know if you have), but the time has finally come: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters later this week! And while for the longest time it didn’t seem like the second wave of movie figures would be hitting stores in time for the movie’s release window, it looks like things have changed–they ain’t cheap, but third party sellers in the U.S. already have the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 figures in-stock now!

Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Figures In-Hand

Ever since the Spider-Man Homecoming Marvel Legends series of 6″ figures hit Amazon a couple weeks back, folks have been asking me to post the direct links to the Amazon listings for the Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Mantis Series here on the site as well.

I was hesitant to do that until the figures became available at least from third party sellers (if not Amazon themselves)–but the wait is over, as Instagram user GoJoe60 has posted in-hand photos of all of the figures on his Instagram feed, and every single one of the figures is also available right now (at scalper prices) from Amazon seller NerdoToys (Dorkside Toys).

Marvel Legends 2017 Rocket Raccoon and Baby Groot FiguresGoJoe60’s photos give us our first good comparison photo with the original Rocket Raccoon Marvel Legends movie figure from 2014 side-by-side with this year’s version of everybody’s favorite not-really-a-raccoon. The comparison between the two definitely shows massive improvements to this year’s version, with Rocket’s scale corrected and his articulation much-improved (including an articulated tail this time around!).

The Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 Rocket Raccoon & Groot pack is rumored to be the one two-per-case set in the series, but I haven’t seen that 100% confirmed just yet.

Gamora — http://bit.ly/LegendsGamora

Currently these links only turn up third party sellers’ figures at inflated prices, but these are the same URLs that Amazon will be using when they get the figures in-stock for MSRP.

I don’t know when exactly online retailers will be permitted to sell this Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Mantis Series of figures, but the rumor I’ve heard is May 8th (next Monday). And seeing as how DorkSide Toys has already started receiving their stock, that definitely seems like as good a guess as any.

Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Wave 2 CaseI’ll post updates here and to the Marvel Toy News Facebook and Twitter Pages once the Guardians of the Galaxy Legends Wave 2 figures go up for order for the actual retail price. Unless you’re really desperate to be the first on your block with these figures, please don’t pay the scalper prices for them–they should be available very soon.

Now that the arrival of the second Marvel Legends 2017 Guardians of the Galaxy Series is imminent, what are your plans for this wave, Marvel collectors? Will you be buying the whole wave, just the figures needed to build Mantis (ie everyone but Death’s Head II), or picking and choosing just your favorites from the series (or none at all)?

Marvel Legends GOTG Wave 2 Figures Amazon Listings! — 21 Comments

  1. I can’t wait to the Vol. 1 Gamora in the trash. I hate that figure. Vol 2 Gamora can’t get here soon enough.

  2. Can’t wait for this wave. All the movie figures look great, though I don’t know about Star Lord’s new face. The comic figures are a little wacky, but I like them overall.

    • There is something really weird going on with the 2014 Rocket’s legs in that picture. They’re really tall and seem customized. Regardless, the 2017 one looks 1000% better.

      • You are correct, GoJoe60’s Rocket is heavily customized. The original figure didn’t have any articulation below the waist. Very much excited for the new one!!

  3. @Dabid Your Starlord 2 link brings me not to Amazon scalpers, but to a redirect chain that eventually dumps out an obtrusive survey/ad/screaming thing. You might want to check that link.

    • Nope! I said it’s rumored online retailers MAY be able to start taking orders for them on May 8th. Maybe. It’s all conjecture, but that’s also the only date I’ve heard thus far.

  4. Honestly the only one I have my eye on is Deaths Head ll. I’ll definitely be checking the stores in my city next week for him. Thanks for the info.

  5. I didn’t know Nerdo toys was Dorksidetoys Amazon seller name. Kind of disappointed to see them scalp these figures as I’ve always tried to use them for online purchases when possible.

  6. If it weren’t for Mantis, I’d be skipping most of this wave.
    Nebula, Rocket, Adam Warlock, and Mantis are the only ones I care about.

    ExNihilo and Death’s Head II are okay, but I have no real urge to own them.
    And Gamora is the most boring character design for a hero in the whole MCU. It’s just frustratingly generic and dull.

    But the LAST thing I need is another LAMER Star-Lord. FFS. I already have FOUR Star-Lords, and the Ego two-pack one isn’t even out yet….
    The LEAST they could’ve done is put the BAF piece with DH2, instead of Star-Lord.
    >_>

    This wave is frustrating.

  7. “not-really-a-raccoon”
    Rocket literally IS a raccoon.

    “89P13 is a genetically enhanced raccoon turned freelance criminal, calling himself Rocket.”

    “Subject: 89P13 was a raccoon (although he shows no knowledge of what a raccoon is when Peter Quill refers to him as one) that was recovered by an alien race. Brought to the Halfworld planet in the Keystone Quadrant star system, he was genetically and cybernetically enhanced so that he was given sentient intelligence. However, the years of abuse and repetitive genetic rewrite caused him, calling himself Rocket, to develop a vain and chaotic personality, driving him into becoming a gun slinging mercenary. “

  8. i am just finally happy we can have a nebula figure , despite the fact i have always been a fan of the per-nineties nebula who had great hair, i am still so going to have this figure no question it is a raritie a character like nebula gets a figure , and the colors are amazing
