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.

To round up the reviews for the regular figures from Hasbro’s Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series, today I bring you none other than the main hero, the infamous (in his own mind, at least): Star-Lord!

Clone Pilot ( Phase I Armor)

One of my favorite action figure molds in the modern Star Wars lines is that of the super articulated Clone Trooper, released by Hasbro way back in 2005 during the heyday of the Revenge of the Sith line.

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.

Well, not surprisingly, Hasbro did include yet another version of Darth Vader in the first wave of 3.75 inch figures from the Star Wars Black Series Collection.

Nova (Marvel Legends)

Since I had already decided that I wanted the Groot BAF, I went on and bought Nova, even though I did not expect the figure to be as good as it turned out to be.

Merumeru

Ever since I saw Revenge of the Sith, the notion of a horde of wookiees charging into battle has held a certain appeal to me.

Drax the Destroyer (Marvel Legends)

Drax the Destroyer may still not be a household name, even after the success of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but at the very least his action figure turned out to be quite great.

Chewbacca (Clone Wars)

One interesting aspect of watching the animated Clone Wars TV series was that sometimes an Original Trilogy character would make a cameo on one episode.

It is no secret that a good number of my action figure purchases are directly inspired by the video games I indulge upon.

Mara Jade

Even though Black Series Mara Jade is still a pretty decent action figure, it is also the first Star Wars figure I have ever bought, whose purchase owes more to external reasons than to the actual merits of the figure.

Hyperion (Infinite Series)

I am not a fan of the Hyperion character. I’ve already bought the 6-inch Marvel Legends figure that came out with the Hit Monkey wave mostly because of the Build-A Figure parts, but I was certainly was not expecting to see a 4-inch version of that character anytime soon.

Sabretooth (Marvel Legends)

This version of X-Men baddie Sabretooth is another of those based off the Hyperion body mold, which is suitably bulky and tall. Sabretooth is massively muscular, and this particular version of his costume lacks any of the furry bits usually associated with the character.
