I've had about enough of Gunn insisting what I should and shouldn't believe about Groot this week.

I’ll worry about making the distinction between Groots if at any point in time this new one acts any differently from the last one.

Groot II wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer in GOTG2.

 

Back to topic, the LCS boxset is probably going to be Bucky, Black Widow, Iron Man and Thanos right?

I hope we get new Hulkbuster armor.

They're definitely different. A new paint job alone ain't gonna cut it for me.

Issue with THor/BP Minimates has been cleared up, and IW should be able to purchase Saturday. May be a full MM reveal that day, as well. Series 1, anyway.

Zach will the TRU wave be available Saturday as well?

But really. I love James Gunn and I love his work but this one thing... this is annoying. 

Pretty sure he’s just saying asinine things to see what fanboys will do with the asinine things he’s saying.

I'm not arguing grammar semantics. His name, according to his creator, is "Adolescent Groot."

Maybe he becomes "Teen Groot" in Infinity War or Vol. 3, but the individual seen in the 3rd credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with Peter Jason "Star-Lord/Star-Prince/Star-Munch/Who?" Quill is "Adolescent Groot." 

"Trash Panda" & "Twig" are acceptable, because they were written by James Gunn.

James Gunn, who says "Teen Groot" is incorrect.

Well not to beat a dead horse but Gunn has stated he’s also “Tween Groot”

 

“Another minor misconception is that people think that's Teen Groot at the end of the movie," Gunn explained. "And I understand why. It's actually Adolescent Groot. I would call him 'Tween Groot.' Or, we call him 'Adolescent Groot.' He's not quite a teenager yet."

 

He must really want to differentiate tween from teenager for some reason, maybe that’ll be part of GOTG3, Groot becomes a teenager.

"Adolescence typically describes the years between ages 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However, the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, during the preteen or "tween" years (ages 9 through 12)." ~ PsychologyToday.com

Oh, and I found ONE SET at Walgreens last night. Of course they wouldn't sell it to me but are holding it until Sunday. They also overreacted and pulled ALL the Minimates from the pegs.

If Marvel's gonna move the film release up a week it seems they could lift that embargo, too.

Speaking of Hot Toys, I wish the minimate Iron Man Mark 50 had the cool hand cannons and wing back pack as accessories.

I picked up the TRU Exclusive Infinity War Groot Pop today, it's just labeled as "Groot".

Not tween, adolescent, teen, junior or reincarnated.....just "Groot".

I think anyone that deals with pre-teens and teens can tell you the distinction is not without a difference.

At any rate, that new design for Behemoth-buster Ferrous Man would be cool to see in Punypal form.

I hope there will be second waves @TRU and Walgreens..... maybe another 4-pack.

I hope the boxset Iron Man comes with some extra parts like the fins and giant blaster hand.

Zach said in a post “series 1, anyway” which is his way of saying there’s more coming.

So we're not getting a comic shop wave out of this too, this seems to be a trend, Thor, Panther now Avengers getting box sets with walgreens and can't pay our bills'r'us getting 2 packs.

Widow's costume doesn't seem to be as green as it could have been, so I think I'll get the box set even though I have no interest in the new Bucky.

It does seem a little weird to me that Widow's face is less detailed than her last three movie versions, though. Hopefully the likeness will be stronger on the final product.

Also, it looks like the box set has the same Thanos & Iron Man from the 2-pack. @DSTZach, can you confirm?

I would assume it's the same, since that's what happened for Ragnarok and Black Panther.
