Marvel has released a first look at the upcoming Minimates set based on Guardians of the Galaxy - and this wave of action figures is one of the most fun and interesting Marvel Minimates series in quite some time!
Providing another look at Ronan the Accuser as well as Nebula, the Nova Corps, the Sakaar and entire [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073) team as two-inch block figurines, check these out and see what you think (it's an instant purchase for me!):
Rocket looks incredible... In order to be authentic to Rocket’s scale in the movie, the manufacturers made him a micro-figure Marvel Minimate of about 1" tall (as opposed to the usual Minimates 2" size). I dunno about you, but I sure as hell want a 1" Rocket in my jeans pocket to carry around all day!
The set will be available in two packs. The pairs include: Star-Lord with Ronan the Accuser, Drax with Groot, Gamora with a Nova Corps Centurion and Nebula with a Sakaaran Trooper.
The Marvel Minimates Guardians of the Galaxy figures wave is expected to be released in Summer 2014 with the Guardians of the Galaxy movie all set for a August 1, 2014 release.
