Who Would Buy This?

Fans of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie will definitely want to have their own version of the Rocket Raccoon, which is shaping up to be one of the most popular characters from the film. However, even those who are not fans of the movie, but are avid toy and action figure collectors will also want to get their hands on this specific toy, along with that of the other Guardians of the Galaxy characters.

Things We Like

Hasbro, makers of the toy, deserve a lot of props for making sure that the Big Blastin’ Rocket Raccoon electronic toy lives up the character in the movie, and we’re not just referring to the appearance, the weapon, and the actions it makes. They also made sure to incorporate the character’s personality into the toy, making it “speak” its snarky comments and remarks. Of course, the built-in sound effects during battle are also greatly appreciated.It is already a given that, since it is holding its spinning blaster, the weapon should also mimic the action that the actual blaster makes in the movie. It lights up and spins, much like it does when Rocket Raccoon starts blasting. Other than that, though, the action becomes more convincing, since the raccoon visibly shakes and trembles – a recoil effect – with every blast.In order to make Rocket Raccoon blast its weapon, all it takes is to press on a button on its leg. This dispenses with the need for remote controllers.

Things We Don’t Like

Making the Rocket Raccoon “speak”, saying its signature snarky phrases, is a great touch, certainly. However, it would have been better if the voice was used was still that of Bradley Cooper, who played the character in the movie. This will make the owners appreciate even more that they own a true Guardians of the Galaxy action figure.

Guarantee?

Hasbro has not yet made any announcements regarding the warranty or guarantees covering this product.

Is It Worth The Money?

It’s Rocket Raccoon from the Guardians of the Galaxy. It talks, it moves, it fights, it blasts! Of course, it is worth the money! Better yet, complete the whole collection by purchasing the other action figures from the movie, as well!

Where Can I Buy?

Hasbro is sure to release this electronic toy in its stores, as well as other online merchants, including Amazon.

Final Thoughts

Toy collectors and movie fans rejoice, because there’s a new action figure in town that will blast its way into your hearts – the Guardians of the Galaxy Big Blastin’ Rocket Raccoon!
