Just grabbed a set. We'll see if it doesn't get cancelled, or I get shipped something completely different.

Can anyone who has both say how GotG 2 Rocket looks with GotG 1 Groot?

Here. I took a picture of all four:

Here is a different angle:

Thanks! Seeing this makes me think three things. One, that Vol. 2 Rocket does look fine by full-size Groot, two, that the new Rocket is much better than the old one, and three, that baby Groot really should have been darker.

Idk, I'm still having a hard time liking the new rocket. If he had a kids chest block I think I'd like it better

That would make him a lot better, but he's grown on me since I figured out how to get him to hold his gun.

@luke314pi How about a whistling face for Yondu with the sticker kit?

Rocket definitely needs slightly bigger legs. :confused:

I don't have mine yet, can anyone with the Hot Topic Cheshire Cat see how his rear legs look on Rocket?

Not that I want to have to track down a second Cat and try to paint match...

I received my sets today. A few thoughts:

-I like that Yondu got his arrow. I am a bit envious of the floaty arrow and whistling head that the ML figure has though.

-The metallic green on Mantis really pops. It looks much better than if they had went with a flat color.

-I appreciate the work they put in to Taserface. The head is well-designed and it's nice to have a new somewhat generic sci-fi gun. I imagine we'll see that again in the future.

-I thought it was a bad idea to not make Rocket a microfigure and this figure makes that argument much better than I ever could. It's just a mess of a design and I'm surprised that DST didn't do better even with the obvious difficulties. Maybe it could be saved with some tweaks (child torso, different legs) but I doubt it. I hope DST doesn't go this route again with Rocket. The head is a nice sculpt.

-Does anyone have stands that actually fit the figures? I assume DST has been using new tooling for the feet lately and they don't fit on the stands without seriously stressing the plastic.

I could be wrong, but I think your nebula is happier than mine.

She found her way to me?

I got a second pack and her mouth is a little higher up on the face.

Aren't they just the knives from the first movie? 

Yes and the same as the Walgreens Drax
