If you are a Marvel fan and you love everything about Groot, you’re going to be in for a big surprise when you see Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Rock N’ Roll Groot. If you haven’t got the chance to learn about Rock N’ Roll Groot yet, that’s okay, because we are going to tell you everything we know so far …
What is Rock N’ Roll Groot?
Are you familiar with the first Guardians of the Galaxy? If so, you probably remember the character with the limited vocabulary named Groot. The movie ended with Groot looking much different and younger than he …or maybe it started the new movie: Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2. In this movie, Groot was reintroduced and he picks up where the character ended the first movie.
The Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2 – XPV Rock N’ Roll Groot comes from Jakks Pacific – this is a toy version of Baby Groot as you see him in the second Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
In the movie, Groot likes to groove – so naturally, this toy will dance as soon as you play music. Included with the toy, you’ll have a remote control, so you will be able to make Groot move without music if you like. The remote control looks a lot like a 1980’s era mix-tape. It has two buttons that make Groot spin in different directions – he can spin either counterclockwise or clockwise.
Groot plays the song, Flashlight, while he’s being controlled via the remote. The faster he spins, the more of a dance mood he will get into, until he and his bowl are spinning just like a top.
Is This a Fun Toy?
The Baby Groot character in the second movie is very cute. This R/C version is also very cute as it resembles him. We personally think you’re going to laugh as you watch his character spin around. When you control Groot, you’ll have a more interactive experience because you will be responsible for deciding which way you want Groot to go and how fast he should spin.
Who is the Toy For?
Rock N’ Roll Groot is for fans of Groot. It is created for ages four and up, and even adults like playing with it. Due to the simple controls, it’s great for young kids. As we said, fans of all ages will have fun with this cute little Groot. Simply having him on display on your desk will bring a smile to your face.
When Groot spins, his bowl lights up, which is really neat. Groot will require a total of six AA batteries in order to run. Four of those batteries are for Groot and his bowl unit – those four batteries are included for the “Try Me” package. This means that you may need to replace them after you buy the toy. The second set of AA batteries are for the remote control and those are not included.
If you’re a Groot fan, whether you’re a child or an adult, you’re going to like this toy. Even if you buy it for yourself just to set it on your desk, it is well worth it.
