Entertainment Earth Exclusive Marvel Legends Infinite Series 6" Guardians Of The Galaxy 5-Pack Coming In August

We have gotten word from a pretty good authority that Hasbro will be releasing a comic book based 6" Marvel Legends Infinite Series Guardians of the Galaxy 5-pack this coming August. We don't have official word from Hasbro yet but from what we have learned from other sources, this set will be sold as a Entertainment Earth exclusive. At SDCC last year Hasbro said this set would include figures of Star-Lord, which is a re-release of last years SDCC exclusive version, as well as a classic Gamora, Groot, Rocket Raccoon and Drax on their bigger sculpted body, IE Hyperion body. We also have learned the set will include a special Baby Groot figure. The cost for this set will be $120.

What is not exactly clear is whether the set will be sold anywhere besides Entertainment Earth's own website. They are actually an authorized wholesaler for Hasbro so it's possible anyone with a wholesale account with them could sell this set. Entertainment Earth and Toys R' Us have also been known to work together from time to time so its also a possibility they could end up there as well.

Pre-orders for the set are expected to begin in 2 weeks so we should defiantly know more by then. While no official images for the set have been released, these shown below began circulating the web and various Facebook group pages today. We don't know where it originated from or who to exactly credit for it, but hopefully we will get better looks for you soon.

Aargh. Gamora is the only one I really need, but I can see appeal since the Rocket wave was tough to find and Starlord was SDCC. I'd heard rumors of this set being a TRU exclusive so maybe it'll be a little cheaper there. $120 seems a bit steep.

A re-release, a repaint, and two headswaps. Is Gamora basically new?

Hard to tell about Gamora, though I'll say it's mostly a repaint with a new head sculpt and possibly cape

For Drax it looks like they are using the lower body from the movie figure, the Hyperion torso, and the head from Radioactive Man. Gamora looks to be on the Moonstone body with Satanna's head, and some costume overlays with a cape and hood. The Sword looks to be Black Knight's and the Cape may be Valkyrie's.

I know it doesn't fit the team, but it's not like Drax and Gamora appeared in those costumes at the same time, so it would've been neat to get a purple costume Drax. They could've even changed up Starlord to his white trimmed costume for more variety. Hopefully this will be elsewhere besides an online exclusive.

Seems kinda unlikely, but Entertainment Earth is pretty great. It's not as great as buying something in person and finding the best set in the store (or the best set in town if one has the time and gas money), but they're damn good over there.
