Did you see the new trailer for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy? If not, go check it out now. It was only a matter of time before Lego revealed new sets based on Guardians of the Galaxy. With the new movie coming out this summer these sets will be extremely popular. For some reason, images of the first 3 sets have been rare. Just a few days ago Marvel and Lego officially revealed the first image of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Milano Spaceship Rescue (76021, $74.99).
It also appears that these new Lego sets were on display at the recent Toy Fair 2014. In the background of a few of the other Lego Super Heroes photos the box for the Knowhere Escape Mission (76020, $39.99) can be seen. It looks like the whole cast will be represented in these sets, with Peter Quill (Star-Lord), Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket, Ronan, and Yondu in minifigure form. Interestingly, it looks like Groot will be brick built.
The third set (76019) in this series is still a mystery. But, it will be priced at $19.99 making it the entry point for this mini-theme.
“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team–the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand–with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
