One of the most popular movie quotes (and memes) of the past couple years is, “I am Groot!” The lovable Marvel character found his way into our hearts with his unique personality and this singular repeated phrase. Always the kind to help out a friend, and certainly a brethren, it’s only natural for him to lend himself to a fellow famous tree. Builder Letranger Absurde has expertly crafted a microscale Whomping Willow using a LEGO Groot bust as the trunk. Topped with an adorable Ford Anglia, it’s a perfect representation.
Great minds must think alike, because as wonderful as this is, it’s not the first Groot-trunk. Back in 2017, our contributor, Benjamin Stenlund (Henjin_Quilones) used the same piece on his “South Gate of Lleidr Castle” build.
In the mood for more Groot? Well, you’re in luck, because we have a little “Moody Groot” just for you! How about more from the Wizarding World and Harry Potter? We have a ton of that too!
BrickHeadz are being introduced fast and furiously this summer. The latest feature is the duo from Avengers: Infinity War, featuring Rocket Raccoon and teen Groot. In a similar configuration to the LEGO Harry Potter BrickHeadz: 41615 Harry Potter & Hedwig we just reviewed, Rocket Racoon comes in the 3×3 configuration while teen Groot is built to the standard BrickHead 4×4 size. LEGO hasn’t announced the release date or price yet, but we’ll be sure to bring you that info as soon as its available.
What happens when you don’t see what you like from LEGO’s official set releases? You build your own! Here’s Adeel Zubair‘s custom creation of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that would fit nicely in the upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz. You just gotta love those black beady eyes! Now, is anyone else up to the challenge of a dancing groot? I’m Groot! (Translation: Shut up and take my money!)
MikMikEternity gives us this wonderful custom Groot minifigure. The detail and sculpting are impressive. He says he sculpted the additional pieces and painted by hand. I love the weathered, wooden look and the subtle greenery all over Groot. There is so much character.
