The movie changed all that and since I have picked up most of the new books and took in all the other (limited) media available. While I like the Chris Pratt version of the character, I didn't want to make the investment in the 6'' Marvel Legends figures that would no doubt be required. When I saw this little guy I was convinced that he had to be mine. To be honest, I sort of like the look of this version better; more true to the comics and certainly a look more becoming of a "LORD OF STARS" than the space pirate featured in the movie. Maybe this costume will be featured in the sequel? Pros: Great articulation, good price point, good likeness to source material. Cons: Figure broke right out of the package. (Looks like they used a left shoulder joint for the right should and had to force the bicep in place casing the joint pin to crumble. Not wanting to deal with finding a new one, I just glued them together a called it good.)
