With Guardians of the Galaxy hitting theaters soon, retailers are starting to line their shelves with lots of Guardians merchandise. Hasbro has the license for the Guardians figure/accessories line. Overall, the toys released for the series are a bit of a disappointment. With the exception of the (extremely hard-to-find) Marvel Legends series of GotG figures, the rest of the line seems cheap and poorly made.
I had to pick up a Rocket Raccoon in some form (love the character!) and the best looking option was the Titan Heroes Series Rocket Raccoon figure. He's the same scale as the rest of the Titan Heroes line (12"), so Rocket is actually a lot smaller than the rest of the figures in the series. The figures in the series are a budget line that you can pick up at big box stores for (depending on the store) $9.99 to $12.99. The nice thing about them is that they're reasonably priced. Unfortunately, they have no articulation. Hopefully, I can find a Marvel Legends Rocket in stores so I don't have to pay scalper prices. For now, this figure will do.
