I saw that on Facebook, that's pretty cool looking so far.

This is going to be amazing. A couple thoughts come to mind:

- BOTH characters look like ONE statue (imagine that!)
- With how XM keeps improving with every statue, the paint on this will be awesome
- This gives me hope for finally a 1/4 Drax

Whether or not they ever get a North American license to sell Marvel or DC or whatever, I love seeing XM come out from the other side of the world and directly compete with Sideshow. They didn't have to make this. They could've just let Sideshow walk away & reap the rewards from their SEPARATE releases of comic Rocket & Groot, but instead they said, nah, watch us take a chunk out of their pie while giving everyone what they've wanted in a comic version of these two characters....Rocket riding on top of Groot. Like Gentle Giant's film version, this is also a great render.

Love it!

Wish Rocket was a little fuzzier, instead of scruffy. When he's cute, cuddly and fluffy it's even more hilarious when he pulls out his guns/launchers

Speaking of, I wonder if Rocket can be aiming the gun. He does it all the time in the movies so it seems ridiculous that he can't be doing it in statue form.

I wonder if Rocket himself would be big enough to have change out parts.

WHAT IF THIS CAME WITH MULTIPLE ROCKETS TO POSE WITH.

To be fair to SSC, theirs was a pretty good representation of the comic version of G&R.

While i would prefer this version with Rocket riding on top of Groot this doesn't take any of sideshows business. reason i say this is because for alot US collectors at least , will be priced out. Even if I would be willing to pay the overall elevated price for an XM piece the shipping alone makes it a non starter. But this looks great so far! Are they scheduled to do the whole team?
