Batista’s Guardians of the Galaxy Drax Finally Gets A Hot Toy

by Damian Seeto

Batista (Dave Bautista) finally gets his own Hot Toys figurine as the company has revealed its first Drax model from the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Hot Toys announced on Facebook: “Today, Hot Toys is officially presenting the 1/6th scale collectible figure of Drax the Destroyer for fans to complete their Guardians of the Galaxy team.

The movie-accurate Drax collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Dave Bautista in the movie, featuring the newly developed head sculpt, a newly developed muscular body with detailed sculpture of the character’s iconic tattoos, two styles of interchangeable pants, two blades, a rocket launcher, and a Guardians of the Galaxy themed figure stand.

To the fans who have been fixated on Drax all these time, don’t ever let the chance to own this collectible figure fly over your head.

A rumor as to why the figure took so long to come out is because Batista was signed with WWE for two years from January 2014 until January 2016. During that period, WWE had exclusive rights to release toys with his likeness on them.

Since Batista’s movie career kicked off, he is no longer with the WWE so now Hot Toys is able to release a Drax toy. Guardians of the Galaxy fans can now make the team complete.
