Engineers at Walt Disney Imagineering have been working on animatronic robots which can walk on their own for a while now. As part of their Project Kiwi initiative, they created a walking version of Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. He needs a safety tether at present but is still an impressive creation.
Awesome Guardians Of The Galaxy
Hot Toys keeps raising the bar for head sculpts. Their 12″ action figure of Yondu from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 looks exactly like Michael Rooker. It’s a shame it doesn’t come with extra heads. It does have the team’s jet pack, both of Yondu’s fins, his trusty arrow and more.
Beast Kingdom’s trademark Egg Attack figures have an oversized head and cartoony proportions, making the series perfect for Peter Quill’s larger-than-life personality. The 6″ tall figure has 30 joints, and comes with both masked and unmasked faces. Drops 11/29/2017.
If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 yet, get yourself to a theatre now. It’s awesome. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy this 3-minute medley of a few of the classic ’70s tunes from the soundtrack, performed by The Warp Zone and Chad Neidt.
Man at Arms: Reforged made a replica of the Godslayer, the weapon of choice of Gamora, the assassin-turned-Guardian of the Galaxy. While the Godslayer’s fictional version has a detachable knife, Man at Arms chose to make it a layered but fixed piece for stability.
You may think you know the Guardians of the Galaxy, but if your only point of reference is the movies, you’ll be surprised to find out that Star-Lord, Rocket, Gamora, Drax, and Groot didn’t even appear in the earliest issues of the comics. The Know fills us in on their origins.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn recently revealed the full list of songs that are in the cassette tape that Star-Lord’s mom left him. Eric Buckleitner compiled them into a YouTube playlist, while Redditor ilikegamesandstuff made a Spotify playlist.
If the motley cast of misfits in the Guardians of the Galaxy universe weren’t strange enough, please to enjoy Aldo Jones‘ latest Weird Trailer, in which Gamora has an awesome shark gun, Quinn can’t control his muscles, and neither Rocket nor Drax can keep their pants on.
Marvel rings the bell for the hype train with a short interview with the cast and crew of Avengers: Infinity War. The two-part film is the culmination of nearly a decade of after credit-scenes. Seriously though we hope they can make Thanos interesting.
The 60-second extended ad spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gives us more Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Yondu, Rocket, and Baby Groot, along with a little facetime with Mantis, and more than an inkling that Fleetwood Mac will make the soundtrack this time.
Drop what you’re doing right now, and press play. Then press it again. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Baby Groot are back and ready to blow up the box office (and everything else in sight). The only thing not to like: we have to wait until May 2017 to see the whole movie.
The first teaser for next summer’s big sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy gives us only the tiniest glimpse at what to expect, but we’re still stoked for the return of our favorite motley space crew. We only wish they’d have teased what was on Awesome Mix Vol. 2.
Tested visited Quantum Mechanix’s booth at San Diego Comic-Con to look at the toymaker’s upcoming spaceship scale models. The highlight of the booth is definitely the cutaway Millennium Falcon, but the Star Trek Beyond ship and Star-Lord’s Milano are awesome too.
Not only is it awesome that Chris Pratt will spend time with a lucky fan on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but he’s also been kind enough to share a bit of what they can expect. Or not. Donate on Omaze to support a great cause and for a chance to win.
