Hasbro Marvel Legends Guardians Of The Galaxy Entertainment Earth Exclusive Box Set Review

Hasbro Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Entertainment Earth Exclusive Box Set 11

 

Hasbro released comic versions of the Guardians of the Galaxy through Entertainment Earth as an exclusive box set about a year after the film hits theaters. While they did release a movie wave of the figures including Nova and Iron-Man with a Groot build-a-figure, a comic version of Gamora and Groot were no not offered in the Marvel Legends line in comic form… until now. Hasbro has been slowly introducing the Guardians of the Galaxy comic versions of the figures into the line with Drax in 2012, and a San Diego Comic-Con Star-Lord exclusive in 2014.

To be fair, no one really seemed to predict how well the Guardians of the Galaxy would do at the box office and let’s not forget the Groot craze that followed afterward along with the “I am Groot,” leading the toy industry to many different Groot collectibles from action figures to plush. With the success of the movie, and toy line, Hasbro had announced at SDCC 2014 of this box set while the franchise was still so popular.

The line-up in this set includes comic-accurate versions of Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and Gamora. There are even some bonus accessories including an extra head for Gamora, three guns for Rocket, planted groot, and a Cosmic Cube.

Groot was previously the build-a-figure in the movie wave and he uses that same sculpt, with a newly tooled comic-accurate head. He comes already put together and is not considered a build-a-figure in this box set and the new head sculpted is well detailed and sculpted. Rocket is able to grab onto one of the roots on Groot’s head and hold it while standing on his arm and holding a blaster with the other. You are able to re-create some great comic poses with these figures.

Rocket Raccoon uses the same sculpt as previous released figures including the build-a-figure in 2013, the movie line, and the Marvel Unlimited exclusive figure. If you have forgotten, Hasbro introduced a couple of 4″ build-a-figures about 2 years ago, one of which was Rocket. He also has a newly tooled head and big grey blasters. He also includes the same black gun as the previous figures, and a potted Groot.

The previous figures included a pivoting jaw, and while this new figure does not, he matches the comic source material better. While it’s true that we own all the previous Rocket figures, which is just too many Rockets in the line, this version is that one to get. The one in the gallery (with a white trim) is the Marvel Unlimited Incentive figure for this year.

Drax The Destroyer makes his third debut in the Marvel Legends line, with the first figure released in 2012, and the second in last years movie line. The figure uses shared parts from more recent Marvel Legends figures, and some great detailed boots and gauntlets. He comes with two sets of knives and two sets of hands. The smaller knives have sheaths located on his boots and these knives also have some alien writing sculpted on.

Gamora is finally getting a comic styled figure and she includes a base body from recent female figures such as Moonstar, and also uses the same head for the unhooded version. The body includes some great paint apps detailing her outfit and the base of the body is one of the best from Hasbro so far. She includes two alternate heads, a soft goods cloak, a plastic cape, and a sword.

Besides Groot, Star-Lord also became very popular as of last year and was a pretty common costume at last years New York Comic-Con, with only one guy really looked the part and resembled Chris Pratt as he was bobbing his head to music.

Last years San Diego Comic-Con exclusive had offered fans the first comic inspired Star-Lord figure. While the blue is a different shade on the figures, the biggest difference is the brown boots and belt, and the color of the guns. In our gallery below, last years figure had black boots and a belt. He also includes a Cosmic Cube that he can’t really hold onto.

Overall:

Considering there is not so much new tooling here, Hasbro did an incredible job on this set and we especially like Gamora.

Highly Recommended.
