Jesus, how many fucking times they gonna release these same Gaurdian figures?
Not ONE new character for the 3.75 scale, i. This 5 pack.
some lazy alterations on a couple figures.

From that first GOTG 3 pack that pegwarmed till the movies came out, the singles, two packs, and singles again... now a five pack.

Seriously this is less than phoning it in, they couldn't even bother to give starlord a original head... it's fucking steve Rogers.

It will look good for MOC displays,
But otherwise they don't even give a #$@#,
This better be cheap.

At least they could of done those Fancy packagings they been producing.

.....Yeah... that set is crappy. 

 

I'm hoping to find Drax from China Ebay sometime, but otherwise, why bother? 

It would have been SO easy to do something interesting with this set, but the line's budget must be next to zero. 

Alter the Rocket mold?

Do Gamora in her her matching outfit like in the 6 inch set? (it's just a repaint of the current female blank mold anyway which we know that head fits on)

Exactly!

How hard would it of been to Just do some Body swaps on Gamora, Starlord and Drax (like Hundreds of Customizers do) and say it's the same character but in So and so outfit?

Or leave out Gamora or Drax and swap in one of the "other" Guardians. Clearly the don't care about matching eras or outfits. 

Do Martinex or Agent Venom?

Do we know what this is going to cost? I'm guessing $70 or $80 right? If I could get it for less than $50, I might pull the trigger because I want Groot and Drax. I really wish they'd cough up the dough for a fully articulated Rocket. GotG is a hot property and they can repack it into oblivion so it's not like they have to worry about recouping the investment in tooling.

 

We don't get much from them anymore. I want to support the line as much as I can, but they are making it damn near impossible. I really don't want to hear Dwight running his mouth about box sets not selling.

On the plus side it's cool to have them all in one box! I do think they could of given us a new Gamora.

These GoTG figures ended the 3-packs.

 

These GoTG figures ended the revived comic packs.

 

It is only fitting that these GoTG figures end the line.

 

I'm not happy about it, but I do enjoy symmetry.

Not to mention that Starlord; Rocket; and Gamora were single packed in recent waves....these truly were the harbingers of doom for this line.

I finally caved and bought this. I had rewards credit and a coupon on the verge of expiring and they knocked it down to a more reasonable price point. For anyone curious, all 5 figures are different from previous releases. Star-Lord, Groot, and Drax are obvious.

 

Rocket now has a white stripe on the lower half of his face as well as a white ring on his tail. His belt is brown instead of black and his gloves are a brighter shade of red.

 

Gamora has the light green hair and the dull white color armor like the comic pack version, but without the glossy finish. She also comes with two pistols.

Stitch - what is the price on this set?  I may have overlooked it somewhere but can't seem to locate the info.  I no longer have a access to a decent TRU and am considering getting it off eBay but don't want to be terribly ripped off.

It's $50, but I wouldn't pay that unless you missed out on any of the previous releases.

Gotcha - thanks. I'll wait to see if it comes down at some point in the future.

Saw the set in person today for the first time--didn't realize Rocket had a different face deco.

 

At least that was something. Still don't understand why this set exists or why it was as lazy as it was.

I got my guardians box set today! Drax had one of his knifes missing! Is this the first time they have changed his legs?

Yes it is. Do you have the previous releases? The knives should be the same.

I have the first guardians box set, but wasn't sure as I didn't buy the guardians when they got released as singles. So each figure has new features?

Groot is the recent comic pack version, but with red stripes instead of white. He matches the figures from the 2011 team pack.

 

Star-Lord has the Commander Rogers head with brown hair and painted five o'clock shadow.

 

Drax is a darker shade of green and has the Bleeding Edge Iron Man legs painted silver.

 

Gamora has 2 guns instead of 1, and she has the dull white plastic that the comic pack used, but without the glossy finish.

 

Rocket has white rings on his tail now and a white stripe on the lower half of his face. His belt and ammo pouches are brown instead of black, and his gloves are a different shade of red.
