Potted Groot


A little too pricey for my budget. Still, I think it's pretty cool ...

From Gentle Giant:
Before the Flora Colossus named Groot appeared on the big screen, in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, he was busy making his name in the Guardians of the Galaxy comic series from Marvel Comics. As a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Groot helped the team through Annihilation: Conquest, War of Kings, Thanos Imperative and other, major, cosmic battles. Many times Groot has given his all for the team, sacrificing his body. However, as long as a single twig remained, it would re-grow into a new body for Groot. What better way to celebrate Groot, as well as the Holidays, then to offer this festive collectible! This piece is a depiction of Groot, as he was in the Guardians of the Galaxy comic, while being tended to by Mantis, after being replanted by his best friend and partner, Rocket Raccoon. Featured standing in his pot, Gentle Giant Ltd. has included interchangeable snow, a scarf, and Holiday lights to decorate one of the greatest trees of all time! Gentle Giant Ltd. is proud to bring you Holiday Groot! This exciting limited edition statue is digitally sculpted by our master artisans, and is rendered using the highest quality polyresin and hand painted. Each piece comes individually numbered and is paired with a matching certificate of authenticity. And if you are on Santa’s nice list, you will be in for a special surprise. "I AM GROOT!"
