Marvel Legends – Groot Evolution Action Figure Review

Hasbro’s Marvel Legends action figure series is a premium line featuring Marvel characters.  This is the first one I’ve purchased, and it won’t be the last, as the level of detail is superb.  This Groot Evolution figure set includes an enormous Groot 9″ action figure, plus a small Baby Groot and Potted Groot, which we’ve seen from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

Here is a look at the packaging:

This Marvel Legends Groot Evolution figure is fantastic, there is such a level of detail on this character that really blew me away.  The way they have the moss throughout his body and how great the face of the figure was, has sold me on this figure line.  I completely love this figure and its certainly going to be going onto my Marvel display.

There are some downsides, neither the Baby Groot or Potted Groot are really worth bothering with, since they are so small and don’t have much use, but they could be fun to display with other characters like Rocket Raccoon or Drax.

Another issue I had was the legs for the main Groot figure, as you could see from my video review, they just kept falling off while I was manhandling the figure.  However once on display, it wouldn’t be an issue, but its understandable that had they been built into the figure, the box would have been too big for display.

It’s got lots of articulation to allow for plenty of posing positions and as you can see from the photos below:

Here is our video review of this Groot Evolution figure:


This Groot Evolution Marvel Legends figure is one of the detailed action figures I’ve seen in a while, the attention to detail on the body is very impressive and I love the facial expression.  It’s a shame the legs are a little delicate and the two mini figures are a little pointless, but that doesn’t take away from a excellent full grown Groot action figure.

REVIEW SCORE: 8 out of 10
