After unboxing, and loving the Hot Toys Ghost Rider we’ve been itching for a new Hot Toys figure. The quality is better than most and it should be for the price. Thankfully the Groot life-size figure shipped last week and we got it today. Check out our unboxing and snap judgment review below:
This is a good figure with intense detail on the body and good motion in the joints. The toy also comes with some cardboard speakers that look good (with some interesting texturing to them) though they are still cardboard boxes. The figure itself is indeed life-size as far as baby Groot is concerned. The only accessories he comes with are tiny leaves that you can stick all over his body. They give it a slight additional 3D effect. The toy also has a nice weight to it and should be easy to pose with some flat stumpy feet to keep him steady.
The price is going to be steep for most, but considering the cost of most Hot Toys figures, this is actually on the cheaper side. Aside from this, I did notice a bolt or two visible in the wrist and ankle when posed certain ways although this isn’t a dealbreaker.
