Yondu Hot Toy Is Coming, But Sadly With No Mary Poppins Costume Change

Posted by August 24, 2017 Comment

Yondu still looks awesome though. I plan on getting all of the Hot Toys from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (oh, how my wallet weeps), and this one will be pretty damn spiffy.

“I’m Mary Poppins, y’all!”

Once a Ravager, forever a Ravager. Yondu will always remain in our hearts. Years ago when Yondu were actively involved in child trafficking in Ego’s quest, Captain Stakar exiled him for violating the Ravager code. But after knowing the terrible fate the child will face, Yondu chose not to deliver Peter Quill (Star-Lord) to Ego and raised him instead; even sacrificed himself to save his beloved son Star-Lord. Today, Hot Toys is pleased to dedicate to Marvel fans the 1/6th scale Yondu collectible figure in memory of his selfless act and his loyalty as a Ravager from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2.

Expertly crafted based on the image of Michael Rooker as Yondu in the well-reviewed blockbuster, the 1/6th scale Yondu collectible figure is just phenomenal, highlighting the remarkable likeness. The figure features a newly developed head sculpt, interchangeable magnetic fin and the new “prototype” fin, a intricately tailored and highly detailed costume, a pair of suspenders with arrow holster, a dagger attached to the wristband holster, a specially designed figure base, and a miniature Baby Groot attacking in his Ravagers outfit!

There will be two versions as usual with Hot Toys: a regular release and an exclusive that will come with three extra accessories. There are as follows:
