Dancing Baby Groot Papercraft

At the end of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movie, a re-sprouting baby Groot is seen dancing when no one is looking. Designer Richenna King recreates the memorable scene with this baby Groot papercraft. As if the papercraft wasn't cool enough in and of itself, it is also an automata that actually dances! A PDF template, instructions, and a movie of the model in action may be found on King's Behance page. In the Marvel Comics universe, Groot is a member of a plant-based extraterrestrial race. One characteristic of the race is the ability to re-grow after being destroyed (as long as at least one sprig of their former body is recovered).
