Marvel Gallery Guardians of the Galaxy 2: Gamora & Rocket Raccoon PVC [Statue] by Diamond Select Review
Gamora: What was that story you told me about Zardu Hasselfrau?
Peter Quill: Who?
Gamora: He owned a magic boat?
Peter Quill: David Hasselhoff?
Peter Quill: Not a magic boat. A talking car.
Gamora: Why did he talk again?
Peter Quill: To help him fight crime, and to be supportive.
Gamora: As a child, you would carry his picture in your pocket and you would tell all the other children that he was your father, but that he was out of town shooting Knight Rider or touring with his band in Germany.
Peter Quill: I told you that when I was drunk. Why are you bringing that up now?
Gamora the daughter of Thanos, and Rocket round out my reviews of Diamond Select's amazing line of Gaurdians of the Galaxy 2 PVC Statues from there Marvel Gallery line. And like the other ones this is a beautiful piece that belongs in your collection
Here they are in all their glory. Let's focus on Gamora first. Hand outstretched to hold her massive sword (which I'll get to later) other hand twisted a bit behind ready for any suprise that may come her way. Fully detailed from the green skin tone to the black leather outfit. Everything is an exact replica from the film. From her bracelet's to the shirt underneath her leather vest to the studs on her boots everything looks gorgeous
Focusing on her head you can right away see her steely eyes gazing into battle. The hair is perfectly etched, colored, and placed to create a Shadow by her neck.
The shading of the skin as well as the forehead marks are copied exactly from the makeup work done in the films. The cheekbones and menacing yet pouty lips are a perfect match. Notice again the eyes and how it's almost starring a hole through you.
The belt buckle as well as the belt in it's entirety are perfectly sculpted and etched. Every clip and notch is done in tremendous fashion.
You can see all the bubble and battle damage done in the pants. Look closely at the left leg and notice how well that is done. That's not a simply paint job that is fantastic sculpting at it's best.
Like Drax you can see Gamora and Rocket are also on a swamp like base that is also sculped, painted, and shaded in a way it looks real.
And now we look at Rocket and as you can see he looks great. With the angry look in his eyes to the sneer in his mouth that you can see some of his teeth coming out this is spot on. All of Rockets fur is etched, painted, and shaded in such fashion it looks like real fur.
The outfit is an exact copy as well. From his backpack to his belt, to his battle worn uniform this looks amazing. Once again it's stunning how real it looks. Even the spot on the knee where Rockets fur come out it truely looks like fur.
The way hes placed next to Gamora in the "Back to Back" battle pose gives the a true wrap around 3D look
Notice Rockets gun. You can see how his little fingers wrap around the Handel, each one sculped individually to give it a realistic look. The gun is sculped just like the blaster Rocket has in the films. You can see if you look closely every scratch, smudge, and nic in the gun.
The gun looks great. You can see everything was done to replicate the blaster from the film. From the barrel to the trigger it's all there.
The way the gun is aimed, next to the placing of Rocket by Gamora gives this the full wrap around look. The angle of the gun next to Gamoras leg mixed with the shading will give it a 3D look and feel.
No that's not a gratuitous shot of a raccoon and an alien woman's but, that's to show off even more of the amazing detail that went into this item. Notice the rings on Gamora's fingers, the slit where her pants tuck inside her boots, and how Rocket actually casts a shadow against her.
Now look at Rockets backpack. You can see the detail and etching that went into crafting his jet bag/ bag. From their gun holsters to the base that they stand on every color and every shade of paint stands out and makes this a must own item.
I continue to stress how Diamond Select is the go to manufacturer of not only toys your kids can play with but that there statues and display pieces are leaps and bounds above the competition. And lets keep in mind their items are all reasonably priced. So stop read and head on over and pick this and other items up.
