He was one of the prisoners selected to be part of Star-Lord's suicide squad to destroy the Phalanx Spire on Hala, and after surviving the mission, became one of the first members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, alongside his fellow survivors Groot and Mantis.
Return of Marvel Legends- Wave 6 BAF (2013)Edit
Rocket Raccoon's first Marvel Legends scale figure was released as the Build-A-Figure for the sixth wave of Hasbro's Return of Marvel Legends series. As a miniature BAF, he was split up among only half of the figures in the series- his head and rifle accessory were included with The Wrecker, his torso and tail were included with Jean Grey, and his arms were included with Black Panther. The figure is based on the 2008 Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning series, with Rocket Raccoon wearing his team uniform, and wielding the same rifle used for his Marvel Universe figure.
Marvel Unlimited 2015 Subscription (2015)Edit
Part of the annual drive to push Marvel Unlimited, the digital library of Marvel comics accessed via subscriptions, this Rocket Raccoon figure is a straight repaint of the Wave 6 Build-A-Figure, giving him the light blue and white uniform Rocket wore during his time under Star-Lord's suicide squad during Annihilation: Conquest. The figure was only available to those who signed up for a year's worth of Marvel Unlimited for $99.99 before the end of 2014.
Marvel Legends: Guardians of the Galaxy 5-Pack (2015)Edit
Released in 2015, the Guardians of the Galaxy 5-pack Rocket Raccoon is a remold of the previous released Build-A-Figure Rocket Raccoon figure, with a new head-sculpt designed to resemble the art of Ed McGuinness from the Marvel Now Nova book, and a repainted tail featuring a prominent white stripe and tip. Rocket was included alongside new versions of Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, and Groot.
The figure included a repackaged version of the custom rifle that was included with the Build-A-Figure and the Subscription figure. He also includes a new rifle, and a repainted version of the Destroyer Rifle originally included with Agent Coulson.
The set was ultimately released as an exclusive at the online retailer Entertainment Earth, and was also made available on their Amazon store page.
