Thanks to this little film called The Guardians Of The Galaxy that came out in 2014, you might have heard of a few new names in the hero business. Star Lord (Who?)! Drax the Destroyer! Rocket Racoon! GROOT! And the deadliest lady in the galaxy, Gamora. Now I dug Zoe Saldana’s green-skinned Gamora. She was a lethal and fun character, charming and deadly with a sword. But she’s nowhere near as kickass as her comic book source material.
There’s a reason why Gamora is so feared in the cosmos, and it isn’t because she happens to have been raised by Thanos. Gamora is a superhuman killer, boasting enhanced speed, strength and agility. She can heal as well as Wolverine, possesses cosmic powers that allow her to pull weapons out of nowhere thanks to a nifty cloak and she wields a sword that just so happens to be named “Godslayer”. She’ll kick your ass six ways from Sunday, is what I’m saying.
I’ve got a lot of love for the current comic book incarnation of Gamora. And evidently, so does Sideshow Collectibles, when you lay eyes on this premium format figure of the real big G:
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy took the world by storm, both on the big screen and in a series of popular ongoing comics. Now, featuring the female lead from the intergalactic team of superheroes, Sideshow is proud to present the Gamora Premium Format Figure.
Many warriors roam the universe looking for adventure and mayhem, but none have earned as formidable a reputation as Gamora – the deadliest woman in the galaxy!
Adopted at a young age by her eternal enemy Thanos, and raised as a master assassin, Gamora puts her unparalleled skills to use as a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. On some strange alien planet at the furthest reaches of outer space, the green-skinned daughter of Thanos suits up in her sleek futuristic white battle armor, as well as a hooded cloak, belt and gold skull decor – upgrades reminiscent of her appearance after she attained cosmic powers from the Black Vortex.
Brandishing her favorite weapon – the storied Godslayer blade – the most dangerous woman in the universe is ready to go to the ends of the universe to kick ass and take names!
Like everything else in the Sideshow catalogue, this will cost ya. Better start hawking some rare goods to the Collector, as Gamora is priced at $449.99. And she still doesn’t know who put those sticks up the butts of all those townsfolk.
