Welcome to the Legion!

So this morning I was sent a tweet by a man named John Marcotte with a video of his daughters Anya and Stella, and their search for Guardians of the Galaxy Gamora action figure, which he posted on the site Women You Should Know. Considering all the posting we’ve done about the lack of Gamora action figures, and how she’s left off of most of the Guardians merchandise, when the rest of the team is on there, I though you guys would get a kick out of it. Marcotte is a contributor to Women You Should Know and his wife Patti co-edited the video. These little ladies rock!

I also wanted to make you aware of some of the comments I’ve received here and on my private page, as well as Twitter. I’ve been told that the lack of Gamora toys might have something to do with Zoe Saldana’s contract negotiations, which is absurd, because there are a few toys out there. I’ve been told to be patient, because they’re probably coming. Imagine the temerity of we ladies wanting our toys to be released at the same time the boys do! So pushy! I’ve also been told that female action figures don’t sell as well. Well, how about putting some out there? Marvel, I’m handing you my money! I’m seeing the movie again! I love Gamora! So do these young ladies. So, #WheresGamora?

Check out the video below! Huzzah, Anya & Stella!
