I ended up getting the Rocket figure from the Marvel Legends series. This figure comes with a huge gun and the top half of Groot plus an very special weapon for another character. The detail on this figure is fantastic. It takes a bit to get it to stand up but eventually I got it to work. Many points of articulation as well. The Groot figure looks very cool, too. In addition to this figure I got a cool little featurette to share. all about the ship, The Milano. Check it out below. Oh, and for me it is one more night until we go see Guardians again.

Here is the Story Synopsis.
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where 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 Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
