‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ LEGOs Preview the Film’s Big Action Sequences
Though we’re still a couple months away from the release of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ the latest LEGO sets offer a preview of what to expect from the movie, while also giving toy collectors something to salivate over.
Though we’ve already seen the Milano Spaceship Rescue, both through official photos and the LEGO preview at the 2014 International Toy Fair, the other sets only recently debuted (via ComicsAlliance), and the toy descriptions give us some sense of what’s to come in the movie.
Here’s the “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.
Next up, the “Knowhere Escape Mission”:
Team up with Groot and Rocket Raccoon to plot an escape from Knowhere! 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.
Knowing Marvel, we’ll be finding out a lot more about the ‘Guardians’ before the film is released on August 1.
