Complete with virtual backgrounds, this Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Experience is one you don’t want to miss!

Before taking to their new home on Fisherman’s Wharf, the duo were spotted taking in the sites and surprising passers-by amongst iconic Californian redwood trees in a nearby forest.

He is Groot! Immortalized in his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 form — voiced by Vin Diesel — Groot will measure at a towering 7 feet 8 inches tall. Rocket — voiced by Bradley Cooper – will stand at three feet five inches tall. Madame Tussauds worked in close partnership with Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy’s original creative team to recreate every physical detail of the characters.

Created by Marvel legend Stan Lee, writer Arnold Drake, artist Gene Colan and editor Roy Thomas, the original Guardians of the Galaxy began their spacefaring careers in 1969 in the pages of Marvel Super-Heroes #18. In 2008, writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, artist Paul Pelletier and editor Bill Rosemann revised the team, this time comprised of previously created but unrelated sci-fi characters. This comic book series, starring the ragtag line-up of Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora, Groot, Mantis, Quasar and Adam Warlock served as the inspiration for the films by Marvel Studios.
