Jerks. Now I have Groot's dismembered head and torso staring at me all reproachfully.
For $20 a pop, these are fairly expensive figures. However, they are really nicely made.

|"Ow. Freakin' OW."|
Let's see who Rocket plays well with!
|"Kyon, if this is your idea of a joke, I'm not laughing."|
|"Surrender your coffee, Terran!"|
|"I jus' wanna know if'n anyone else is seein' this!"|
|"Surrender, villain!" |
"Villain?! If I wasn't so freaked out by the lightning thing, I'd be insulted!"
|"Ooooh, you poor little guy! Let's get you some water!"|
"Atta boy, Groot! Keep 'em distracted just a little longer..."
In conclusion: I initially was not too happy to realize I'd spent $20 on an action figure, but I'm pleased enough with Rocket, despite his limitations. I wish that perhaps his shoulder armor could have been pared back a bit to give him more freedom of movement. Additionally, he has one weapon he can't use and another that he struggles to hold. His amazing sculpt and amazingly accurate paint distract me from that, though. All in all, I'm glad to have him in my collection. I can foresee a lot of fun to be had with this little guy, even with the minor quibbles about his limitations.

Plus, Haruhi's decided she likes having a fluffy supergenius who makes weapons around. And yes, I actually did pay the extra couple of bucks for the Rocket slipcover on the Guardians of the Galaxy dvd. I am taking a long hard look at my life as we speak.
