‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Toys Reveal New Characters & Vehicles

1 year ago by  

Just in time for the world premiere of the first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer coming in the next few days, Marvel, Hasbro and LEGO are earning plenty of social media buzz this weekend with their licensed movie tie-in toys debuting at New York Toy Fair.

The first look official look at Hasbro’s Guardians of the Galaxy action figures came Thursday with a lineup of the five main characters mimicking the first official movie photo. This was followed by the reveal of several LEGO toy sets reminiscent of some of the GOTG concept art the released last year. Today we have a few more toy photos of key characters from the floor of the Toy Fair.

First, meet the plastic versions of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Groot (voice of Vin Diesel) and Rocket Raccoon (voice of Bradley Cooper).

For comparison’s sake, here’s the first official Guardians of the Galaxy still photo:

The colored plastic is certainly more vibrant but it doesn’t help the Gamora and Star-Lord figures which share little resemblance to the facial features of Saldana and Pratt, respectively. On the LEGO front, USA Today revealed the the $74.99 “Milano Spaceship Rescue” set which includes 665 pieces.

The Milano, as seen in early Guardians of the Galaxy concept art, is Peter Quill aka Star-Lord’s personal vessel. Think of it as Marvel’s Millenium Falcon. The LEGO set features Gamora piloting it with Drax the Destroyer riding shotgun.

The set also features Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) rocketing in the air with his jet boots (that we saw on display at Comic-Con 2013 last summer) while wielding a chest-mounted canon as he attacks Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace). Ronan of course, featuring his Kree-blue skin from the comics, is holding his iconic weapon and the mysterious orb we also saw at Comic-Con. Photo of actual orb and boot props below from Comic-Con:

Our man Kofi Outlaw also snapped a few photos at the Toy Fair today of Ronan and Star-Lord’s odd weapon, along with a few others, from Hasbro’s Guardians of the Galaxy line. Korath the Pursuer works for Ronan and is played by Djimon Hounsou. He had a lot of screen time in the Comic-Con footage played to us last summer.

The Sakaaran is rather interesting since it’s a race prominently featured in both Planet Hulk and World War Hulk, properties long-rumored to be potential future movies for Marvel Studios. In fact, it’s their planet of Sakar where Hulk’s space ship crashes in Planet Hulk. They’re one of several alien races moviegoers will meet in Guardians of the Galaxy and in Marvel Comics, the Sakaarans are actually split into two factions, visually distinguishable by their grey or red skin color.

  1. there is a nova figure there too… but i dont think he will be in the movie and if he is it will be very minor. not to mention there is a series coming for GOTG so he would definitely be in that. why make a few characters when you can make a whole collection when there are guys out there that will want them all.

    • The Nova figure is of one of their many guards (there’s actually four different ranks of them) and we saw a BUNCH of them at Comic-Con and in the Comic-Con footage. The big question is whether or not we meet Richard Rider.

      • @Rob, Are you allowed to tell us what Nova Corpsmen Ranks you saw at Comic Con? lol

        • Not sure what I can say on that front, but it’s pretty much the same as in the comics.

          • Okay cool thanks. In the comics, the “Gold Domes” have 5 ranks Corpsman, Millennians, Denarians, Centurion, and then Nova Prime.

            Then you have the Black Novas like Sam Alexander. They’re like your black ops covert corpsmen with Black helmets but they have same chest emblem as a Centurion.

          • Will this be explained in the movie? Or in a guide book. I’m a little worried that this film might fail if these sort of things aren’t explained to general movie goers.-I would read up about them afterwards but others probably won’t.

    • It would be really cool if they released several different ranks of Novas, instead of just this one guard.

      Hopefully they’ll intro Rider down the road even if it’s not in this film.

  2. Don’t really have anything …but Ronan is looking much better than I had thought he would. Much truer to his comic book look, than what I suspect the other studios would have gone with. Guess we’ll have to wait and see if the design holds up on screen.

    • I’m curious, what does ” doesn’t really have anything” mean?

  3. Might grab that Drax action figure to go with all my other Batista action figures over the years.

    Rocket looks great too, might purchase him.

  4. I like the action figures. Great look. Looking forward to the movie, though I’m still doubtful that Raccoon will do fine with general public…

    But I’ll never really understand the appeal of Lego toys. Why deliberately chose the inferior, less-realistic version in favour of being able to “build”??? Those inbuilt nobs destroy any realism and those tiny characters all look the same. This is why I’ll probably like the new LEGO movie and never got into Lego Star Wars, Batman etc…

    I guess it’s due to my inherent lack of imagination that disables me to fully enjoy cartoons, comics, claymation and puppetry. I’m an avid collector of life-like busts and figures but when it comes to lesser detailed toys I’m out. Even as a child I prefered MOTU figures over Lego at any time…

    But no offense intended to those who are into Lego… I just don’t get it!

    • I always liked Lego but hated the idea of making stuff out of my own imagination. I could do it but I always wondered what the point was. Then again, I used to have “armies” of good guys vs bad guys and used excuses for why my 12 inch Sabretooth action figure towered over my 6 inch Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter and X-Men action figures.

      I’d also save my Robocop toys for last as the cavalry when the villains brought out an AT-AT as their secret weapon. I also remember a friend having a Predator action figure and making the mask look even more badass by using silver paint and then adding some red for the eyes (paint bought from Games Workshop for use with Warhammer 40,000 figures he had, big collection of Blood Angels).

      I still collect Lego, whether it’s Lego City or the Marvel/DC sets, purely cause it’s something I love and even if I don’t play with them, they can sit on a shelf for me to admire next to my Flash action figure from around 1992.

      • I love you Dazz, I also love to collect LEGOS, I have a ton of Marvel super hero action figures, and the big baddies like Thanos and Ultron and Red Skull, just need to find a Loki that I like :( I think the Legos for GotG look awesome so far, I made a couple custom Zelda and Link legos as well. :D I love not growing up!

  5. Haha Gamora’s face is a crime. Doesn’t even look female.

    Trailer soon!

    • She looks like Beyoncé from that Super Bowl Meme.

  6. looks like they took the wwe batista and spray painted it

  7. Looks alright if we get the figures here I might pick them up are they 3 3/4 or 6″ ? Also why do we never see any comic con footage or stuff if we don’t go?

    • They like to make it an exclusive event thing, which sucks for those of us who can’t go for varying reasons and miss out on trailers that show over the week.

      • Ah I thought so it’s odd only now do we see this stuff.

    • The last 4 photos of figures, Nova, Ronan, Sakaaran, Korath, those are small 3 3/4 figures. They only articulate at the shoulder and hip, like old school star wars figures.

      • That explains a lot so there 5 poa points of articulation-I’m a collector of star wars- tha’s why they look like *****

        • DC toys (3 3/4 inch) suck so bad, they are ***tty and the Marvel (3 3/4 Movie series) are getting ***ttier as well, Marvel Universe (3 3/4 inch) is the best.

    • It’s for SDCC attendees, it’s a long tradition. Some (but not all) of the SDCC footage will find its way into the regular promotion schedule.

      BTW if you really wanted to see it, it’s on youtube.

  8. Just noticed, that Gamora figure looks like a cross between Chyna’s version of She-Hulk and Renee Zellwegger’s pre-surgery scrunched up face.

    • lol you mean that porno she maid????

      • She-Hulk made a porno??!?!?

        • There was an Avengers parody with adult stars playing Thor, Spider-Man, etc and Chyna starred as She-Hulk in it, then she starred in a She-Hulk movie with a few others playing Mr Fantastic and the Invisible Woman.

          • is this a joke?

            • Yeah I believe it was “Avengers XXX a Porn Parody” and “She-Hulk XXX A Porn Parody” by vivd

              • i get the parody thing i’m shocked at the Chyna thing wow…after seeing that post i did a search…my eyesight still hasn’t stabilized

  9. Okaaaay… I want them all already (especially Rocket), however, it’s going to be reeeealy pricey! *sigh* And Ronan and Korath looks nice, though I wonder why the latter does not have blue skin? I thought he was a Kree as well…

    Not to wait for the trailer in 2 days….

    • Kree have 2 different skin tones, blue and “pink” although I think “pink” is supposed to resemble caucasian humans more than actually being pink.

  10. *NOW to wait for the trailer…

  11. Ummm…why isn’t Korath blue?? He’s a Kree just like Ronan.

    • Not all Kree are blue.

      • In the comics, Korath is blue.

        • Yep. The logic used in his comment was basically “Korath should be blue because he’s Kree,” which is incorrect since only some are blue, others are pink. “Korath should be blue because he was in the comics” is a whole other thing.

          • Darthballs did say, “He’s a Kree just like Ronan.” Ronan being of blue pigmentation is what he could of been referring to. Therefore he could of meant, “He’s a blue Kree just like Ronan.” Who really knows wtf Darthballs meant but Darthballs lol

  12. i think the post credit should have hulk crash on the sakaaran planet thus bring his own sequel and it would make a pretty interesting space battle for avengers 2.

  13. The LEGO sets look good. Ill pick em up for sure.

  14. you could drive a bus through Gamora’s legs

    • Maybe her action figure comes complete with a small invisible horse?

  15. Even Chris Pratt’s ‘Star-lord’ action figure looks cocky. I want a Rocket Rancoon and Groot figure, Awesome! I’m not too impressed by the Lego set, especially the price; hopefully they have some smaller sets available at a cheaper price. Still, I have a better feeling now how this movie will match its concept art we all saw last year at SDCC.

    • Lego sets can be expensive.

      I saw a Joker’s Hideout set on Amazon a few weeks ago with Harley, Riddler, Joker, Batman and Robin minifigs selling for close to £250.


    • I’m guessing the Nebula character isn’t playing a large role, or isn’t considered a ‘major’ character in terms of putting them in the toys. Hopefully she’s in the toys, just not in these promo materials.

  16. OMG! Ronan looks badass!! My only worry for this movie was how Ronan’s appearance would look. How I was so very wrong to doubt Gunn! Can’t wait till Tuesday!

  17. My doctor stated I will most likely die if I don’t get the GoG Lego Milano Spaceship…

    for my son, of course…

    Everything is awesome!!!

    • LOL

  18. i bet that the orb is another infinity gem anyone agree with me?

    • It is, according to Marvel Studios.
