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.

Iron Man (Deep Space Armor)

The very first figure I bought from the Guardians of the Galaxy assortment in the Marvel Legends Infinite Series was actually not in the movie at all. It was none other than Iron Man in his Deep Space Armor.
