Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Diorama

Even if you didn’t love Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as much as the original Marvel Studios movie that kicked off the franchise a few years ago, you can’t deny that the opening credits sequence is one of the best of all time.

But that’s all in the background, because the real action comes from the adorable Baby Groot shaking his roots and branches all over the place. That entire scene comes to life in a new 1:10 scale Guardians of the Galaxy 2 diorama from Iron Studios. Check it out below. Read More »
