First Official Look at Hasbro’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Action Figures and a Giveaway to Groot
Hasbro's Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series Toy Fair Poster
Marvel fans are already jonesing to see "Guardians of the Galaxy" later this year, and today we're making the wait even harder as we present our exclusive first look at Hasbro's accompanying action figure line via their special edition 2014 Toy Fair poster.
As you can see below, Hasbro's 8" x 10" poster was inspired by Marvel's first official GotG image. The big difference being the Toy Fair poster uses Hasbro's 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite Series six-inch action figures instead of actors. (Oh, to be immortalized in plastic.)

The poster will be handed out to invited guests during the company's presentation at the American International Toy Fair this weekend in New York City. Even though the general public can't get their hands on one, we're giving away three of them! (Please see official rules below.)
Hasbro's GOTG action figure line includes six figures total. In addition to those pictured above — Gamora (played by Zoe Saldana in the film), Peter Quill/Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) — attendees will be the first to see the two remaining figures in the line when they're unveiled Saturday. And no, Groot (the tree-like creature voiced by Vin Diesel) doesn't count in this case because he's the Build-A-Figure character for the line; each figure comes with a build-a-figure piece that allows you to build your own Groot (and chop him down, if you see fit).
Let's take a closer look...

So who's your favorite? Which figure most resembles its big screen counterpart? We're slightly partial to Rocket and the build-a-Groot, but that could change when we get our hands on the individual figures, which will hit shelves in July and retail for $19.99 each. "Guardians of the Galaxy" opens in theaters August 1.
