Thanks to the trailer that is said to be coming out early next week, we here at Cinema Blend have been going a bit Guardians of the Galaxy crazy over the last few days, and director James Gunn definitely isn't helping. Via his Twitter/Instagram account, the filmmaker has unveiled some brand new toys that will be coming out very soon.
Up top we have our first look and what will end up being one of the major LEGO sets connected to the movie: The Milano Spaceship. As Gunn notes in his message about the set, this is the ship that Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) flies around in, presumably with the other members of the Guardians team, and it was a design that the director himself helped create. According to USA Today the set will be sold for $74.99 and feature minifigs of Star-Lord, Gamora (who you can actually see in the pilot seat), Drax the Destroyer, an alien Sakaaran Soldier and the film's villain, Ronan the Accuser. It's hard to tell if this is the same ship that is on display in the concept art that has been officially released:
Next up we have a closer look at the LEGO set with Star-Lord, Ronan, and Ronan's "craft." It's funny to see a mini-fig for Star-Lord given that the character is played by Chris Pratt, who voices the lead character of the recently-released The LEGO Movie. You can check out the second pic below:
Finally we have the officially licensed Hasbro action figures that will be going into production. I can't say that I really love these figures, as their bodies seem weirdly clunky and some of the costume details are off (when did Star-Lord's leather jacket turn into a trench coat?), but they are still pretty neat. Check them out compared to the first official still.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters on August 1st and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Peter Serafinowicz and Gregg Henry.
