I am Groot!
When Guardians of the Galaxy launched three weeks ago, one scene stood out above the rest. While there was tons of great action and comedy in the film, fans fell in love with the post-credit scene featuring a dancing baby Groot. Shaking it to the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”, Groot solidified his place as the most popular character in the galaxy. Fans have been making their own versions of dancing Groot, but today Ryan Penagos, Executive Editorial Director of Marvel Digital Media, announced via twitter that Funko will be releasing the first licensed dancing Groot as a POP! figure.
And here’s a look at the adorable new figure:
Funko has stated that the figure will be available in retail stores and is not an online exclusive. An official announcement with more details including the release date are expected early next week. And in case you’ve somehow forgotten the scene in question…
Update: The Baby Groot POP Vinyl figure has just been made available for Pre-order and is said that it will be rolled out some time in December 2014, Just in time for Christmas!
