Best 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' Funko Pop! Figures

Set to the backdrop of the 'Awesome Mixtape #2', Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team's wild adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill's true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes' aid as the Marvel Universe continues to expand. In recognition of the new movie, the Guardians characters are once again immortalized in plastic as Funko Pop! figurines. Check out below the new Funko Pop! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 characters before they run out!

Peter Jason Quill is a half-human, half-Celestial who was abducted by the Ravagers as a child. The Ravagers taught Quill how to be the perfect thief. Only after his abduction and into adulthood, he began building a fame as the legendary outlaw Star-Lord, eventually becoming the founder and leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy team. This Funko Pop! rendition of Star-Lord captures his laid back, but ready to throw down attitude.

The half-tree, half-alien who stole our hearts in the first Guardians of the Galaxy, Groot, is back! In the end Groot sacrificed his own life to save his new friends and fortunately survived. Being a tree, Groot was able to regrow and begin again. Since then, Baby Groot has graduated from his potted plant stage and now can roam freely to kick ass if need be. Don't let his sweet and innocent look deceive you, he can hold his own at any plant stage.

Former assassin and a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora is also the interest of the leader of the Guardians, Star-Lord. Gamora is complex, she is stoic, distant, caring and proficient. Although she got off to a rocky start with the other Guardians, particularly Drax the Destroyer, Gamora did eventually grow to respect her teammates and started to see them as her friends and even family.

Drax, also known as Drax the Destroyer, is a former intergalactic criminal and a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. When the Guardians first met him, he was in the midst of his revenge on Ronan the Accuser for killing his wife and daughter. During his rampage, Drax became uneasy allies with Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot. Together they broke out of the Kyln prison and became embroiled in the Quest for the Orb. After the Battle of Xandar, in which he finally gained the vengeance on Ronan he had so long sought, Drax left Xandar with the other Guardians but not before declaring Thanos as his next target.

89P13 or better known as Rocket Raccoon is a genetically enhanced raccoon turned freelance criminal. Alongside his friend and partner Groot before joining the Guardians they travelled the galaxy picking up bounties. During the ensuing battle of Xandar, Rocket managed to assist his friends in destroying Ronan, despite Groot seemingly being killed.

A new addition to the Guardians, Mantis is a young alien who was raised by Ego who was later recruited as a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Mantis is later known for her powers of Empathy, can sense a person's emotions and feelings through mere touch making her antennas light-up. She was able to feel that Star-Lord was attracted to Gamora just by touching his hand. She is also able to manipulate emotions and is able to make people feel sleepy or scared.

Nebula is the adopted sister of Gamora and served as the right-hand woman of Ronan the Accuser during his and Thanos' quest to retrieve the Orb. Known for her superhuman strength and cybernetic enhancements Nebula has agility greater than that of a human being. She can easily keep up with Gamora in any fight. Both Gamora and Nebula were trained since childhood to be assassins while being pitted against each other. In a twist throughout Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we see Nebula, despite her claims of hating her sister and her actions against her, showing signs that she does care for Gamora.

Like all the Elders of the Universe, the origin of the Collector is lost in antiquity. What is known is that he is virtually immortal and is one of the oldest living beings in the universe, having been among the first of the universe's races to become sentient in the wake of the Big Bang. In addition to being one of the oldest beings, The Collector is the keeper of the largest collection of interstellar fauna, relics and species in the galaxy, operating from the Knowhere port installation.

Taserface, a bounty hunter and a part of Yondu Udonta's Ravager crew, led a mutiny against his captain Yondu Udonta. Taserface is revered as a god-like figure for the Ravagers, as they all hailed for him as their own king. He known to be a dumb but yet extremely powerful individual.

Yondu Udonta: Leader of a faction of the Ravagers and former father figure to Peter Quill aka Star-Lord before Quill decided to betray the Ravagers and stole an Orb for himself. Udonta eventually led the hunt for his former ally, but was later convinced to help him in the war against Ronan the Accuser, who was threatening to use the Orb's power to destroy the planet Xandar.

Peter Quill's alter-ego, Star-Lord is a master strategist and problem solver who is an expert in close-quarter combat, armed with various human and alien firearms ready to fight in any battle. He has extensive knowledge of various alien customs, societies, and cultures, and considerable knowledge about cosmic abstracts, such as Oblivion. His suit is augmented for strength, durability and the ability to travel through space. Star-Lord uses the "Element Gun," a special meta-pistol capable of projecting one of the four elements: air, earth, fire and water.

Basically the same old bad-ass Baby Groot, but he's dressed to kill. Don't let his cuteness distract you because his roots pack a punch.

Reunited and it feels so good, or does it? The long-lost father of Star-Lord, Ego at first appeared to be a caring and wise father with the same cocky personality, similar to his own son Peter Quill. However, his true colors are later revealed that he really is a ruthless entity with a god complex who wishes to conquer the universe.
