James Gunn shares an image of one of the most eye-catching tributes yet to the character. It is a life-size Groot standing in a back garden – with a child-size swing hanging from his outstretched arm. The amazing swing was made by Tim Baker.
James Gunn, the director of this summer’s monstrous blockbuster hit Guardians of the Galaxy, posted this image of a Groot-themed swingset to his Instagram (now taken down) and Tumblr accounts yesterday.
“Wow! Some awesome folks made their kid a Groot swing for an upcoming reality show called Super Fans, Super Builds. I love it,” Gunn said.
The swing was created by Tim Baker, a truly devoted fan, as part of an upcoming reality show called Super Fans, Super Builds.
