Marvel may have ordered us to take down the awesome GIFs of Rocket Raccoon and Groot from yesterday (and we may have replaced them with a relevant Grumpy Cat GIF), but that doesn’t mean they’ve entirely forgot about the fans. Marvel has released the first picture of Hasbro’s Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series 6-inch action figures.
The pictures come from a promotion for the 2014 Toy Fair, in which the figures are posed to mimic the first official photo (above) from the film:
Here’s more about the series, via Yahoo!
Hasbro’s “GOTG” line includes six figures total. In addition to those pictured above — Gamora (played by Zoe Saldana in the film), Peter Quill/Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), and Drax the Destroyer (WWE superstar Dave Bautista) — attendees will be the first to see the two remaining figures when they’re unveiled Saturday. And no, Groot (the tree-like creature voiced by Vin Diesel) doesn’t count in this case because he’s the Build-a-Figure character for the line; each figure comes with an extra piece that allows you to assemble your own Groot (and chop him down, if you see fit).

Or… I could just buy Rocket Raccoon and construct the remainder of Groot out of Play-Doh and hedge clippings.
Now for a closer look. Here’s Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt).
And here’s Drax The Destroyer (Dave Bautista) alongside Groot (voice by Vin Diesel).
The figures are supposed to hit stores in July — a month before Guardians of the Galaxy opens — for around $20 each.
