Gentle Giant’s New Rocket Racoon & Groot Statue is Adorably Animated

If anyone has any idea how to properly fund a collectibles addiction while being able to pay for things like rent and food, we are all ears. Gentle Giant, purveyors of all things statuesque and delightfully collectible, recently announced the latest addition to their Animated Marvel statue line-up and man oh man, is it I AM GROOT! Wait a second. What we mean to say is that its a fantastic statue that’s absolutely I AM GROOT! Crap, we’ve spent too much I AM GROOT staring at this statue and it seems to have I AM GROOT the way we’re I AM GROOT.

Alright, we seem to have shaken the tree speech patterns for now so let’s just fawn over Gentle Giant’s animated line. Groot and Rocket are currently available for pre-order and are surprisingly affordable when compared to most high-end collectibles. The duo will set you back $64.99 and will pair nicely pair nicely with Gentle Giant’s Star-Lord figure (also $64.99) or any of their “animated” Marvel line.

Gentle Giant hasn’t released the size of Groot and Rocket or Star-Lord as of yet, but judging by their previous animated Marvel line-up, we can safely assume these lil’ Guardians of the Galaxy range somewhere in the neighborhood of Vision’s dimensions — around five and a half inches tall. Each figure is hand-cast, hand-painted, and hand-numbered with a limited edition certificate of authenticity and is likely to sell out quickly. Should you miss the pre-order on this particular Groot and Rocket, there’s always Gentle Giant’s realistic (and substantially more expensive) statue of the pair for $449.
