To the dismay of everyone, the street/release date on the Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 figures has been pushed back until March 2017, with the new target month reflected on virtually every retailer website. But while we’re waiting another two months to get our hands on Angela (that sounded dirty) and Yondu and Darkhawk, it looks like there’s one new GOTG figure that we may be seeing sooner: a Toys R Us Exclusive Marvel Legends Groot Evolution Pack has surfaced online–with the first Marvel Legends Baby Groot figure!

So much, in fact, that I’ll be breaking their offerings into several smaller, more digestible posts.

Thus far it’s been a pretty quiet Marvel toy news week while we wait to ring in the new year, but we’re not quite out of topics to talk about yet! And so, today I’ll be discussing the silhouettes (no, really, they’re just shaded-in silhouettes) that both Guardians of the Galaxy collectors and Marvel Select action figure fans have been waiting for: the 2017 Marvel Select Star-Lord & Rocket Raccoon and Drax & Baby Groot figures are now up for order!

Hasbro Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Titan Hero 12″ Figures!

electronic-music-mix-star-lord-figure-titan-heroes

Earlier this month we got our first gander at the first wave of 2017 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy 6″ figures (including the Angela figure two years in the making!). But the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie is a pretty big deal, and that means Hasbro has a lot more in store for the franchise than six inch collector figures! And among the offerings are an extension of a niche line with more collectors than you might expect: the Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Titan Hero 2017 12″ figures!

neca-baby-groot-life-size-foam-replica-statue

Let’s face facts: we are going to be absolutely buried in Baby Groot merchandise in just a few months. When all is said and done, we’re probably going to see more items featuring that little sapling than every other piece of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 character put together. So with that in mind, I’ve been waiting to see which Marvel licensee would draw first blood by unveiling the first Baby Groot figure. And while I would have almost placed money on Funko, it’s not them–the NECA Baby Groot Life-Size Replica figure is now up for order!

We’ve been wondering ever since what Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie characters would be completing the lineup, and now we know: 2017 Marvel Legends Yondu, Drax and Star-Lord have now been revealed!

Before Sideshow Collectibles blew our minds with their sickeningly cool Carnage and Venom Premium Format Figure prototypes at NYCC 2016, this claimed hundreds of my future dollars when they revealed their Premium Format Groot & Rocket Raccoon statue at SDCC 2016. The only question was when Sideshow was getting my money–and how much. And as it happens, now I know both: the Sideshow Exclusive Groot & Rocket Raccoon Premium Format Figures are now up for order!

These items are quite a bit pricier than the usual “Marvel toys” I talk about here because they’re the highest of high-end MCU collectibles–the eFX Collectibles Marvel movie prop replicas!

NYCC 2016: Marvel Legends Adam Warlock & Death’s Head!

NYCC 2016 Marvel Legends Adam Warlock Figure Revealed

I probably sound a little bit smug regarding being unsurprised by the four figures I already posted about earlier tonight that Hasbro revealed at their pre-NYCC 2016 event tonight. But I have to admit, I definitely didn’t predict every figure Hasbro was going to unveil at New York Comic-Con. In fact, I’m ashamed to say I didn’t recognize one of the characters at all–the 2017 Marvel Legends Adam Warlock & Death’s Head II figures debuted tonight at NYCC 2016!
