Collider has revealed what seem to be official listings from Hasbro for next year’s Guardians of the Galaxy toy lines. Based on this info, it looks like we will be seeing a substantial toy line, including a 6″ Legends series, 4″ action figures and vehicles (!!!), as well as the expected Titan Heroes and role play items.
What’s cool about these listings are how they suggest a rather ambitious toy line. Guardians is, of course, one of the more unproven– and thus riskier– franchises from Marvel Studios, and while it has been obvious for a while that the House of Ideas was backing this intergalactic pony 110%, this is the first sign Hasbro is doing likewise.
There’s plenty of cool stuff in this lineup– two packs of 4″ figures! A new set of Legends! And even a smattering of vehicles, possibly the first time we will see canon vehicles in a Hasbro Marvel movie line since the Quinjet!
If I had to venture a guess, I’d say the Legends will be predominantly comic-based, although the inclusion of Drax and Rocket Raccoon make me think those two at least will be movie based. There’s no info on a Build-A-Figure, but I’d put my money on Groot– he’s the only Guardian not represented in the lineup, and single-packing Rocket would suggest he will also include a sizeable BAF piece, something to the tune of Groot’s massive torso (probably the first time a BAF part will be bigger than the figure it comes with?).
I’m equally excited for the 4″ line, although the “Rapid Revealers” name has me nervous about gimmicky, Iron Man 3 style figures, the two-packs’ character selection alone makes me think they’ll at least be more in line with the Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier toy lines.
Guardians of the Galaxy is a movie I’ve been excited about for a long time already, and my anticipation is only getting stronger as we inch ever closer to next summer. If this listing ends up being accurate, I’ll be double-stoked to not only see the movie but have plenty of potentially awesome toys to collect!
