Hot Toys blasts off Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with Star-Lord figure
With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hitting theaters next month it almost seems like Hot Toys was behind in revealing figures. Naturally, they kick off with the Vol.2 version Star-Lord. I was really pulling for more of a blue and red color scheme similar to the team’s comic book outfits. We got a glimpse of that potential uniform look at the end of the first film, but it’s back to basics for Vol. 2.
The good news for collectors who got the figures from the first film, there’s not a ton of differences. I didn’t grab the first set so I’m likely on board with the Vol. 2 figures. And who better to start off with than Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord?

Hot Toys is offering up two versions of Star-Lord. The first is a basic figure with a respectable amount of accessories and standard high level detail.
The second, and the one I suspect most people will want, features a trench coat and Baby Groot figure. Be honest, they had you at Baby Groot, right? Me too. The likeness to star Chris Pratt is terrific. I remember when the first figure debuted, Pratt’s face was blurred pending license approval. Guess everyone was more than satisfied this time around, huh?
Marvel fans around the world will rejoice as the release of the highly anticipated Marvel Studios’ fun-filled blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, is coming very soon! Set 3 months after the exciting adventure of their first galaxy saving quest, the Guardians of the Galaxy is set on a new journey to become two-time galaxy savers this time around!
In anticipation to this epic blockbuster’s debut, Hot Toy is very excited to introduce a Deluxe Version 1/6th scale collectible figure of the Guardians of the Galaxy’s leader – Star-Lord!
The new Star-Lord 1/6th scale collectible figure is expertly crafted based on the image of Chris Pratt as Star-Lord in the film. It features a newly developed head sculpt, a newly painted interchangeable LED light-up masked head sculpt, finely detailed and meticulously tailored costume including a leather-like jacket, a pair of blasters, a new jetpack, and a miniature Baby Groot that can be placed on Star-Lord’s shoulder!
This Deluxe Version will specially include an additional Star-Lord helmet in activating mode that can be worn on the head sculpt, an interchangeable long sleeve tee, and Star-Lord’s iconic red color long coat offering even more display options for many fans’ favorite ‘legendary outlaw!’
