REPORT: James Gunn to Personally Ensure Marvel Has Female Guardians of the Galaxy Toys

Gunn has taken up action figure modification to make sure female characters aren't excluded from GOTG2 merchandising.

Asked on Twitter about the representation of female characters in the toy line for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, director James Gunn committed to making sure it happens:


Gunn took things further on Facebook, adding, "I'm making sure this time around the female characters are more represented in the toy world. Not only Gamora, but Mantis, Nebula, and Elizabeth Debicki's character as well." But then Gunn really nailed things down when he posted on MySpace that he plans to make it his "personal mission" to make sure there were as many female action figures as male ones, revealing that he's taken up the hobby of action figure modification in order to produce the figures himself if he has to. Gunn posted the following photo of himself with his latest creations, custom modified Gamora and Nebula figures that he made himself:


Gunn admitted that his hand-crafted action figures weren't a fair substitute for Marvel actually putting effort into purging long-standing institutionalized sexism from its toymaking practices, but he promised that his novice skills will improve by the time he's made "a couple hundred thousand of these things," and swore to keep making them until genders were represented equally on toy shelves everywhere.
