'Guardians of the Galaxy' Dancing Groot Coming in Time for Christmas
Ever since Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters, fans have been demanding that there be some kind of toy made available for purchase that allows them to bring the adorable dancing, baby, potted Groot home with them. Funko was the first to respond with a Pop! Vinyl version of the growing tree hero, and while it's a cute little guy, it still doesn't dance. But thankfully, Mashable has learned that Marvel has teamed up with KIDdesigns to have a real dancing Groot toy on shelves this December, just in time for Christmas. Groot will dance and wiggle to the tune of Jackson 5's song "I Want You Back." See the dancing Groot in action below!
Here's a video of the toy that will be available this winter if you can find it:
And in case you need to see the real dancing Groot again, here you go, folks:
Frankly, I wish that Groot would just dance to any music that you play, but beggars can't be choosers.
Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to join his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand. Marvel releases the film on Blu-Ray & DVD on December 9th.
