This fan-made Dancing Baby Groot is all you want, all you need


Disney Consumer Products struck deals with more than 50 companies for Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise, ensuring store shelves are stocked with everything from a Big Blastin’ Rocket Raccoon Figure to the LEGO Milano Spaceship Rescue Building Set to the Rocket Raccoon Suit-Up Backpack.

But somehow, nobody thought to license — spoiler alert? — a dancing Baby Groot.

Luckily, plenty of Guardians fans have stepped in to fill the void. Moviepilot has a roundup of some of the more adorable efforts, but the best has to be Patrick Delahanty’s creation, which actually dances. He started with a Movin’ & Groovin’ flower he bought on eBay, and, with the help of his fiancee and some Model Magic, voila: a Baby Groot that dances to the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” just like director James Gunn intended.

Watch the video below, and visit Delahanty’s Facebook page for progress photos.

Not bad, but it needs to have different movements so it doesn’t become boring. It only moves in one direction now.

I AM GROOT! It is Grootastic!

ThinkGeek needs to get on this.

I can’t believe Marvel hasn’t jumped all over this to sell products. What a miss.

Seriously Mikey. My first reaction after watching GotG was “I want my own dancing Groot baby!” :D

“Guardians of the Galaxy” opened in over 4,000 theaters. If they had 100 of these available at every theater for, let’s say $19.95 a piece they’d have a chance to make just under $7,980,000. Unless my math is wrong.

I imagine that this could be like Marvel’s version of that Singing Bass toy that was popular ten years ago.
