Gentle Giant is bringing a few more members from the Guardians of the Galaxy to their line of animated statues.
Hot on the heels of Gentle Giant’s Star-Lord (who?!?) animated statue comes Rocket and Groot. Inspired by artist Skottie Young’s style, Groot (who made his Marvel Comics debut in the pages of “Tales to Astonish” #13 back in 1960) stands holding his much smaller compatriot, Rocket (likewise, making his comic book debut in “Marvel Preview” #7).
The pair were digitally sculpted by the magicians at Gentle Giant and printed by their super wicked awesome 3D Systems 3D printers. Those prints were then used as the prototypes for the Groot and Rocket statue. Each one is then hand cast, hand painted and now wait to take up their space on your shelf.
The Gentle Giant Groot and Rocket Animated Statue retails for $64.99 and is expected to ship Spring 2017. You can pre-order the pair at Gentle Giant’s website.
