Seating in a wall of electronic components inside the mobile research facility Arête Laboratories, the most sarcastic, foul-mouthed, and cynic raccoon of the galaxy holds a blaster pistol in his right hand while he brings his improvised card key made by him with scraps to open the cages in Arête Laboratories. Wearing his blue costume with details in red, he joins his friends and allies to face his nemesis, and free the innocent prisoners from a tragic destiny in the hands of their creator, a madman obsessed with creating the perfect species with what he considered inferior life forms and build his own utopia. Revealed firsthand at San Diego Comic-Con 2023 in their booth, Iron Studios brought the statue “Rocket Raccoon – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 – Art Scale 1/10”, the future new leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy over a diorama base that reminds the mobile research facility of the High Evolutionary villain, in a new series with the statues of Groot and Star-Lord completing the set.

Rocket boarded a ship and ran away to the cosmos, and while traveling the galaxy he became friends with the native humanoid arbor Groot with whom he committed many crimes and got many rewards.
