Each of the Guardians of the Galaxy were lovable in their own special way, but if we’re being honest the real heart of the team was Groot. The taciturn tree-creature was equal parts badass and sweet, and his adorable dance moves made him the must-have toy of the season. Too bad Disney’s been dragging its feet on actually putting out said toy.
The good news is that the company is getting closer, as Dragon Models announced today that it will release a 7″ Groot toy. This one looks a lot more like the Groot of the film than that earlier Funko bobblehead did. The bad news is that it’s still not really the Groot toy we want. Hit the jump for details on the new Groot toy. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet. Why haven’t you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet?)

The director’s cut will release day and date in theaters and on VOD in a number of different countries including the US. Read More »
The Teen Titans have been the stars of many comics stories and animated in a multiple TV series, but they’ve never made the leap to live-action. Akiva Goldsman was trying to make a movie at one point, but now he and TNT are near a pilot order for a show called simply Titans. The live-action Teen Titans series would probably be closer to the “New Titans” incarnation of the character set, with a 20-something Nightwing (formerly Batman’s sidekick Robin) leading a team of other heroes and former sidekicks.
