Female Lead Gamora Missing From 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Team Merchandise - Geeks of Doom

Female Lead Gamora Missing From 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Team Merchandise - Geeks of Doom | Retail technology | Scoop.it
In this installment of "Please Take My Money, Disney," we take a look at Disney/Marvel's newest film, Guardians Of The Galaxy, which is currently soaring at the box office and has jumped to the top of everyone's list of favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

When people dig an action-packed, scifi superhero movie like this -- one that has a cool, funny hero (Star-Lord); a badass, gorgeous leading lady (Gamora); a wise-cracking, gun-toting raccoon (Rocket); a sensitive muscle man (Drax the Destroyer); and a lovable tree creature (Groot) -- as Star Wars creator George Lucas has always banked on, they're gonna want some merchandise. So, bring out all the merch you got, and people will buy it (if Star Wars isn't example enough, just ask Gene Simmons from KISS).

But, for some reason, once again, Disney is slighting its non-Princess female characters, as Friend of Doom Amy Radcliffe pointed out this week in her article "A Sad Lack of Gamora," which notes that while Guardians merch and toys are easily found, one of its characters, Gamora, the female team member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, is not, prompting the creation of the hashtag #wheresgamora [...]
Nikki Baird's insight:

Oh, Party City. Oh, Children's Place. Oh, Marvel. Oh, Disney. What have you done? See the train wreck live at #WheresGamora on Twitter. There's even a Tumblr now where people are photoshopping Gamora back into the merchandise for all the retailers and brands.
