Marvel Shop Exclusive Marvel Select Guardians Of The Galaxy Gamora & Rocket Raccoon 2 Pack Review


Marvel Shop and Diamond Select Toys are offering the entire team of Guardians of the Galaxy based on the comic book  in the Marvel Select 7″ line. Gamora and Rocket Raccoon are being offered as a two pack, and includes a piece of the environmental base that interconnects with the other bases in the line.

Diamond Select Toys are offering six new Guardians of the Galaxy figures this year. The exclusive figures are comic based that will only be available at Marvel Shop and Disney Store,  which includes Star-Lord, Drax, Groot, and Gamora and Rocket Raccoon 2 pack. Due to the size and bulkiness of Groot, it made more financial sense that Rocket came with a less bulkier figure such as Gamora from a marketing standpoint. Of course, it make more sense for Rocket to be including with Groot, DST just couldn’t offer this due to the cost.

The comic shop figures based on the new upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 figures are Star-Lord and Drax, as these are based on the film.

Thank you to Disney and The Marvel Shop/Disney Store for providing their exclusive Marvel Select Guardians Of The Galaxy Gamora & Rocket Raccoon 2 Pack for review. 

Availability: March 2017

Gamora is based on her comic book appearance as featured in Marvel Comics Guardians of the Galaxy titles, and features a beautifully detailed sculpt. The figure is sculpted as she is shown in the comics, and comes with her iconic white and black armor. There is also some brown deco on the armor including the knee pads, on the sides of her ships, forearms, and chest. The black portion of the armor has a sculpted texture that is nicely done. On the white part of the armor, there are some carved details on the torso, back, and biceps. Her head sculpt features a great likeness, and includes a green painted head with green hair, orange around the eyes, dark green lips, and excellent realistic looking eyes.

The figure comes fully articulated as what you would expect from Marvel Select. This includes a ball jointed neck, ball hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinge wrists, ball jointed torso, swivel-hinged hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, and hinged rocker ankles.

Included with Gamora are three sets of interchangeable hands, sword, knife, laser rifle, and two laser pistols. The accessories are nicely detailed and sculpted and makes a great addition to Gamora.



Rocket Raccoon is also based on his comic book appearance as featured in Marvel Comics Guardians of the Galaxy titles. He stands at slightly over 3″ tall and is sculpted in his black and silver suit, with two red lines going down the front and back of the costume. This is nicely done, and the silver knee pads are sculpted as two pieces so they do not block the leg articulation. His fur has a realistic looking texture to it. The overall design of the character looks like a Raccoon, and even though Rocket doesn’t like that description, it’s the closest to describe his alien species. The deco on his head is nicely detailed with white and black, and light brown fur. His eyes are also red and he has a snarling facial expression. Rocket comes with with two blasters that he can hold onto.

His articulation includes a ball jointed neck, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, hinged elbows, swivel-hinge wrists, ball jointed torso, swivel waist, swivel-hinged hips, hinged knees, hinged rocker ankles, and a swivel-hinged tail.


In each of the Guardians of the Galaxy figures that is exclusively available on Marvel Shop and Disney Storethere is a environment base that interlocks to form a larger base so each of the five figures can stand on it once its together. This section of the diorama comes with Gamora and Rocket Raccoon, and has a stone flooring with rocks underneath and vines coming out from the ground. The base in painted with a silver object on the side with a brown wash over it that makes it look dirty and worn. The rocks however are painted in blue with a brown wash over it. This is one solid piece that comes with three connectors that attach to other three bases on the sides.



Once assembled, the environmental base measures almost 16″ long and the width does vary in certain places as this is curved. On the base, the tree bark is coming out of the center of the base, and each of the silver objects so not touch each other and are located on four different spots on the base. The base itself comes together nicely with white clips that attach to the bottom. It can also fit all five members of the Guardians of the Galaxy for display purposes.
