Hot Toys is one step closer to bringing the whole team together as we get our first look at the Gamora 1/6 Scale Figure. This Guardians of the Galaxy Collectible Figure showcases a fantastic looking likeness to Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora in the film. The figure will include three sets of interchangeable hands, an extended sword, a sword hilt to hang on her belt, and a figure stand.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Gamora 1/6 Scale Figure is scheduled for release in the first or second quarter of 2015. You can get some additional info and see all of the photos by reading on.
We had seen some official photos of the Hot Toys Guardians of the Galaxy Star-Lord already. While we got a great look at the cloth costume, accessories and the masked head, the lone shot of Peter Quill unmasked was blurred out. Now we have the first real good look at the unmasked head sculpt courtesy of the Hot Toys Community. My guess is that this is still a work in progress, and not the finished design. The head doesn’t match up to the shape and style of the blurred out head sculpt we originally saw.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled for an official release showing the finalized head sculpt. for now, you can read on to check out the image.
