Ultimate Funko Pop Guardians of the Galaxy Vinyl Figures GuideBrand: Funko Pop
Funko Pop Guardians of the Galaxy vinyl figures put a collectible and stylized spin on one of the biggest action blockbusters of the last few years. Covering the core lineup of heroes and villains, characters include Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Thanos, Ronan, and Nebula. Completists also have a few exclusives to track down offered by specific retailers and at special events.
Outside of exclusives, the original Funko Pop Guardians of the Galaxy lineup had five figures. Following the film's release, a couple of memorable moments were captured with the additions of Howard the Duck and Dancing Groot. Funko continued the line with a second series in 2015 that focused on the film's villains.
In addition to the base figures, the Pop set also has a few exclusives. Flocked Rocket Raccoon, which has soft "fur," was available only at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con. Glow-in-the-Dark Groot wasn't sold in stores, and instead part of a Loot Crate package. The Unmasked Star-Lord is exclusive to Amazon. A Dancing Groot with a Ravagers logo on the pot was offered only at Entertainment Earth with another version for Groot found at Hot Topic.
Throwing more figures in play, several holiday-themed versions revolve around the potted Groot and even Star-Lord enters the exclusive mix with a Mixed Tape edition from Underground Toys.
The Funko Pop Guardians of the Galaxy line expanded even further with the inclusion of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 editions.
Unlike some of the other Pop! issues that are simply fixed figures, these are vinyl bobbleheads. This gives their heads some added movement. Funko Pop Guardians of the Galaxy figures are part of the larger Pop! Marvel line and numbered as such. However, options from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series are included in the main Pop! Games line.
Even though he has his own Pop! Stan Lee line, "The Godfather" makes a cameo in the GoTG set wearing futuristic gold-framed glasses.
