When we first met Dave Bautista in full costume and make-up as Drax the Destroyer in real-life on the set of the first Guardians of the Galaxy, the physically intimidating ex-wrestler literally teared up while discussing how happy and appreciative he was that writer-director James Gunn had taken a chance on him for the role, and that he was being made into an action figure in the Marvel universe…
A few years later, and a very laugh-out-loud funny and surprisingly happy Drax is a scene-stealer in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, now in theaters. And just as Bautista will get his wish next year when sharing scenes with Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark in Avengers: Infinity War – he’s dreamed of being on screen with Iron Man – fans of the cosmic hero can have their inner collector’s wish come true too with the ultimate Drax figure – the official Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys coming our way thanks to Sideshow Collectibles.
Check our our exclusive early unboxing above and Drax the Destroyer figure/package details below:
Fueled by a personal vendetta against those who cost him his family, Drax the Destroyer originally only has revenge on his mind, but after meeting Star-Lord, Drax’s life has been changed with friends on his side.
