Hot Toys, a Hong Kong-based collectible manufacturer, has announced a “movie-accurate” dancing Groot action figure. The Little Groot that everyone loved seeing dancing to Jackson Five before the Guardians of the Galaxy credits has been a mini pop-culture hit of its own ever since the film released back in July. Fans on Pinterest, Etsy, and even other large companies have been making their own adaptations of the little dancing tree sliver, but none quite as accurate as this.
According to the post announcing Little Groot on Hot Toys’ Facebook page, the figure will be able to dance as you’d expect.
Now Hot Toys is excited to present one of the cutest 1/4 scale collectible you’ll ever see – Little Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy! The movie-accurate Little Groot Collectible features 3 interchangeable head sculpts, special paint application to reflect his distinctive appearance, and movable arms and body to recreate Little Groot’s dancing scene.
If you haven’t heard of Hot Toys before, they are known for extremely accurate and detailed toys based off of popular movies and TV shows. They have done everything from Star Wars, to Iron Man, to Maleficent and have also done an insanely detailed 1/16th model of Groot’s Guardians of the Galaxy co-star, Star-Lord.
Little Groot will be made available first to anyone willing to make the trip to Hong Kong, China and purchase it at Toy Soul 2014. No word on when he’ll be dancing his way over to North America.Source: Hot Toys Facebook
