Dancing Baby Groot

At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy we see that Rocket has "saved" Groot. The big fella is now but a wee sapling and has found his groove in a hilarious scene! As Drax sharpens his blades, we hear Star Lords Awesome Mix #2 playing and baby Groot gets his groove on.
The moment I saw this it reminded me of a toy flower that used to "dance" when music was playing and I said to my wife and friends, "Marvel should make a toy dancing baby Groot toy!". Apparently I wasn't the only one who thought this, I've seen requests all over the interwebs for dancing baby Groot, and some fans have gone so far as to design the box art and DIY their own dancing baby Groot!

Marvel could not only have the highest grossing movie this year with Guardians of the Galaxy, they could have the hottest toy this holiday season if they make Dancing Baby Groot toys!
I would definitely buy 2!
What do you think? Would you buy one?
