With just over three months to go until the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the marketing campaign for the film is really starting to pick up steam, and a lot of new merchandise is about to start hitting shelves. We’ve already gotten a full-length trailer and a couple of TV spots revealing several new characters, including Pom Klementieff’s Mantis in the first trailer, as well as Elizabeth Debicki’s Ayesha in the latest Super Bowl TV spot. The one character that’s been missing this whole time however, has been Kurt Russell’s Ego the Living Planet. While it doesn’t look like we’ll get to see him in a trailer anytime soon, the New York Toy fair is currently underway, and Hasbro has been showing off a ton of new merch, including a two pack giving us a new look at Kurt Russel’s character in the film. Check it out below!


The above image doesn’t necessarily reveal anything groundbreaking about his character, or any other form he’ll take in the film, but it’s still nice to get another look at Ego. He doesn’t appear to have any weapons, but when you’re a living planet, who needs guns, right? His jacket looks great, and he appears to have some sort of forearm armor as well. The head sculpt is also a great likeness to Kurt Russell, and he looks great standing side-by-side with Star Lord. The figure stands at 6” tall, and is set for release sometime this fall. You can check out the full reveal video on Marvel’s Facebook page below, Ego pops up around the 10-minute mark.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set for release on May 5, 2017
