41st Elite Clone Trooper

The 41st Elite Clone Trooper uses the same basic body mold updated for the Vintage Collection, paired with a Phase II helmet. So far, so good, as the details sculpted onto the armor looks sharp and the articulation is really excellent.

Even though I am an avid follower of the Game of Thrones TV series, truth is I never intended to start buying Funko’s Game of Thrones Legacy Collection figures. However, bumping into them with a nice discount usually tips the scale in their favor.

Groot

For me, one of the things that made this Groot figure so attractive is the fact that it can be used to serve a wide number of roles, either as a generic Ent, a Forest Elemental or simply as a really big Groot to go along my Marvel Universe figures.

Rocket Raccoon

One thing from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie trailer that really struck me as completely bizarre was seeing the CGI Rocket Raccoon being such a bad-ass. Right there I knew that Hasbro had to make toys of that character and that I would buy them, no questions asked.
