Since this is a toy post which reveals some of the locations and characters from August’s Guardians of the Galaxy, consider this post riddled with mild spoilers.
Images of the new Guardians of the Galaxy LEGO sets are out in the wild, and they are looking mighty nice. Three new play sets are making their debut in advance of the film’s August release date – “Starship Showdown,” “The Milano Spaceship Rescue,” and “Knowhere Escape Mission” – and we’ve got images below along with the official synopses.
First up, we’ve got “The Milano Spaceship Rescue,” featuring Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Ronan the Accuser and his henchman Sakaaran:
“Prepare for an epic clash between the Guardians of the Galaxy and the ultimate villain, Ronan! Ronan zooms into this epic deep-space battle in his personal Necrocraft, backed up by the Sakaaran, and holding his all-powerful Cosmi-Rod ready to strike. Luckily, Star-Lord is prepared to launch a counter-attack with the equally potent Hadron Enforcer and 2 iconic space blasters. Steer the mighty Milano Spaceship into battle with Gamora and Drax, firing the stud shooters and flick missiles to repel this evil threat to the Galaxy. Includes 5 minifigures with assorted weapons and accessories: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Ronan and the Sakaaran.”
There’s more Sakaaran and Star-Lord (with a Nova Corps member to boot) in “Starblaster Showdown”:
“Launch into battle against the Sakaaran’s Necrocraft in the awesome Starblaster and help Star-Lord to escape with the orb! Place the Nova officer in the cockpit and launch into the sky. Fold back the wings for high-speed pursuit mode and then flip them up to activate arrest mode. Use the space blasters and boot thrusters of Star-Lord to outwit the enemy and protect the priceless orb! Includes 3 minifigures with assorted weapons and accessories: Star-Lord, the Sakaaran and a Nova officer.”
Finally, here’s “Knowhere Escape Mission” which should really just be called “… And then there was Groot”:
“They’ve discovered the rare orb in the mining fields, only to be ambushed by the bad guys. Evade shots from the huge bazooka assembled by the Sakaaran and the evil Nebula and return fire with Rocket Raccoon’s custom space blaster. Leap into action with the gigantic posable Groot to confront the sword-wielding Nebula. Launch a fierce counter-attack so Rocket Raccoon can get away in the mining pod with the precious orb in its grabbing claw! Includes 3 minifigures with assorted weapons: Rocket Raccoon, Nebula and the Sakaaran, plus Groot figure.”
“Starblaster Showdown” will be priced at $19.99, with “Knowhere Escape Mission” and the loaded “The Milano Spaceship Rescue” setting you back $74.99. Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters on August 1.
