Gentle Giant Announces Potted Groot Statue as 2014 Holiday Gift
It’s that time of the year again. It’s December 24th and it’s about time that Gentle Giant announces their annual holiday gift. This year they are taking some of the hype from Marvel’s Summer blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, and creating a comic based Potted Groot Statue as their 2014 Holiday Gift.
Before the Flora Colossus named Groot appeared on the big screen, in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, he was busy making his name in the Guardians of the Galaxy comic series from Marvel Comics.
As a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Groot helped the team through Annihilation: Conquest, War of Kings, Thanos Imperative and other, major, cosmic battles. Many times Groot has given his all for the team, sacrificing his body. However, as long as a single twig remained, it would re-grow into a new body for Groot.
There clearly isn’t a better way to celebrate the holidays (and Groot) with this very festive collectible from Gentle Giant. The statue features Groot standing in his pot, with additional accessories like interchangeable snow, a scarf, and holiday lights to help you decorate the greatest tree of all time.
Sculpted digitally, this statue was rendered using the highest quality polyresin and then hand painted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd. Each piece comes individually numbered and is paired with a matching certificate of authenticity. And if you are on Santa’s nice list, you will be in for a special surprise.
I think this is a really great holiday gift. The statue is able to be displayed with or without holiday decorations, so it’s not just going to be a piece that you take out 1 month a year.
It’s limited to just 500 pieces and is currently in stock and ready to ship directly from Gentle Giant. It’s priced to sell at just $120 and is currently available here.
