As always I will promote and REWARD the first people to post quality makes (must enable tips on your profile for reward). A quality make is a successful, complete, hopefully decent looking print at 50% scale or larger. This doesn't necessarily need painted but extra bonus if it is.
Peter Quill or as his friends call him.."I am groot" , Came from a planet of outlaws like Billy the Kid, and John Stamos. He once had a dance off to save the world, another time he gave up the power of a celestial because he loves his mom, and yet another time blew bubbles with The Mad Titan Thanos.. He's had a pretty full life and and best of all he's a member of Asgardians of the Galaxy, a group of heros... Lead By Thor.
If this proves popular, I will work on some other characters in the Franchise,as well as accessories and variants of this Character if requested. So Please post your makes, hit like, and provide feedback on what you would like to see in the comments.
This is a Model requested by KingMura on Thingiverse (yep, I take requests)
Check out my page: https://www.thingiverse.com/RyanTheMast/designs for several more Printable heroes and creatures.
I have provided a few options to make printing and clean up easier:
There is a base and figure separately, it will likely need some glue to hold together, the base may need supports touching build plate (not supports everywhere), and the figure without base may be best to position on his back to hide supports but use your best judgement
I have also given a version with a more basic base that will be a quicker to print and easier to remove supports.
Update!: 5/17/19 As requested I have provided a version with the Star lord model on his back in the ideal position for printing to reduce and hide support clean up.
Update!: 5/17/19 As requested I have provided a few different split model options to make printing easier, reduce support use and hopefully save some Headache in clean ups. thank you for the feed back Justin87 :)
Update!: 5/18/19 Uploaded yet another split to help reduce supports, this time separating the head from the body. If I get free time I will alter all of these to include peg together additions for a non-glue easy to align result. Thank you to my supporters for the feedback!
There are now Many options depending on how you like to print your models I hope this helps.

.2mm layer height or better
PolyMaker Polysmooth PLA
-No supports needed on the Jet Cloud Base.
This is a good candidate for sla with the detail level but a challenging print to clean up no matter how you do it... If requested in the comments I will work on splitting this model to be easier to print.
Scanned using the Einscan SP, then altered, enhanced, modified, and optimized in Meshmixer
I can not take full credit for this design as it is heavily based off of the Quantum Mechanix Q-Fig Max Star-Lord figure, if you want to skip the print and own a high quality Quill buy the Quantum Mechanix Q-Fig Max Star-Lord figure.
