Lego Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer

Guardians of the Galaxy is almost upon us. The early reviews are looking good. It is great to get some of the more obscure Marvel characters the attention they deserve. Maybe, they will be featured in an upcoming Lego Marvel game?

Check out this super awesome Lego Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer #2. Starlord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, and Rocket have never looked better.

“HULK SMASH!” – The Three Incredible Hulks

GilcelioChagas's The Three Incredible Hulks

“HULK SMASH!”

There have been many different Hulk characters in the past few decades. The most notable is the Green Hulk, but the Gray and Red Hulk make him work for his fame. Gilcelio Chagas, over at Flickr, has recently revealed their new Lego MOC. “The three Hulks” are pretty slick Lego figures. The studs for nipples is hilarious. Gilcelio Chagas cleared up some confusion concerning the Incredible Hulks. The Green, Gray, and Red Hulks are not all Bruce Banner, but Joe Fixit (Gray) and General Thaddeus E. “Tunderbolt” Ross (Red). Usually the Hulk walks a fine line with sanity, but leans on the good side of morality scale. Not so for the Red Hulk, who is usually a villain. The more you know…

I like the Gray Hulk.

The First Guardians of the Galaxy Lego Sets Revealed

Lego Guardians of the Galaxy, Milano Spaceship Rescue 76021

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.

Lego Guardians of the Galaxy, Knowhere Escape Mission 76020

“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.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which first appeared in comic books in MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #18 (Jan. 1969), stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Nova Prime Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector.

James Gunn is the director of the film with Kevin Feige producing, and Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jeremy Latcham, Alan Fine and Stan Lee serve as executive producers. The story is by Nicole Perlman and James Gunn, with screenplay by James Gunn. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” releases in U.S. theaters on August 1, 2014.

In addition to “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015; and “Ant-Man” on July 17, 2015.”

This Iron Man, Mark VII Armor is a posable Lego Figure

mmccooey's Iron Man Mark VII Armor Lego Figure

The Iron Man Mark VII Armor is instantly recognizable. With a good contrast between red and gold this armor is one of the popular. Flickr user Mmccoey has designed a fully posable figure of Iron Man with Lego. There are over 50 points of articulation, if you count all the movable pieces of armor and the individual fingers. The size of this figure and all of its features match up with most of the non-Lego action figures. This thing has missile launchers, wrist mounted lasers, anti-personnel missiles, air-to-ground missiles, flares, and propulsion jets. This figure also features 6 yellow Lego light bricks (in the photos here they have been manipulated in Photoshop to be blue). Whew!

A Lego Replica Iron Man Arc Reactor

MrAttacki's Lego Iron Man Arc Reactor

The Iron Man Arc Reactor is one amazing prop. The design is instantly recognizable and just plain cool. In the recent films, Iron Man uses the Arc Reactor to keep shrapnel from entering his heart. It is essentially a fusion power supply that has the ability to power the Iron Man suit. It looks hi-tech yet can easily be replicated using everyday objects. This Lego Arc Reactor is simply amazing.

Mr.Attacki has proposed a Lego CUUSOO project based on the Arc Reactor. The whole thing can be built with about 350 Lego pieces, and can be wired with LED lights. The details of this build are beautiful. The design is extremely accurate, and although appearing like a simple build, a lot of advanced techniques are used.

The good news is that Mr.Attacki has included a set of photo based instructions. If only every Lego CUUSOO project would go this far. At least if it never gets considered, fans can attempt to put it together themselves.

The whole project is made even more awesome with the inclusion of some LED lighting. This Arc Reactor look great in a darkened room. You can almost forget that the whole thing is made out of Lego.
