I Am Goot. Groot, I Am. Am I Groot? You get the idea 🙂 Everyone’s favourite sentient tree creature is on his way this summer as a brand-new set. In this newest build we get Baby Groot as seen in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2. And he certainly is just as adorable. Groot is fully poseable with some pretty great articulation. And he comes with a name plaque and (best of all) a brick-built cassette tape of the ‘Awesome Mix: Vol 2’. Groot is the second brick-built character set to release in 2022 along with Iron Man Figure (76206). In hindsight, that set should have been called “I Am Iron Man” right? Oh well, what’s done is done. Read on for the rest of the details and images.

I Am Groot (76217) is very well done and features quite a lot of articulation. The build is easily recognizable and will make a great play or display set. I also love those giant eyes which really sell the look. The name plaque is hilarious as it just repeats “I Am Groot” over and over – well done LEGO®️. But my favourite detail is definitely that cassette tape. It’s super simple but ties in perfectly and is just a nice piece of design. And does this mean a new Walkman set is possibly in the cards at some point in the future? Well, I didn’t know I wanted one until I wrote that.
But what do you think of this latest Marvel set? Are you a fan of Baby Groot? Are you looking forward to more MCU Infinity Saga sets? What character would you like to see next? Drop a comment and let us know and until next time, I Am Groot. . . er, keep on brickin’. 🧱
