Guardians Of The Galaxy

Carving Baby Groot

Carving Baby Groot

Groot is made from wood and leaves, so it only makes sense that a sculpture of Baby Groot should be made from the real deal. Lignum started out with the stump of an old catalpa tree, and proceeded to sculpt it into Guardians of the Galaxy’s adorable little dude.

Baby Groot Desk Planter

Baby Groot Desk Planter

Add some green to your desk with this cute planter that looks like a bust of Baby – Adolescent? – Groot. It’s about 7″ tall and is partially handmade, so no two pots will be exactly alike. You can also use it to store pens, cards and utensils.

Hot Toys Yondu Deluxe Action Figure

Hot Toys Yondu Deluxe Action Figure

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.

Groot Manga Variant Statue

Groot Manga Variant Statue

This cute cartoonish statue of Guardians of the Galaxy’s Groot and his best bud Rocket is based on an illustration by Japanese artist Superlog. The art was used as a manga variant cover for Groot #3. The statue also comes with three background sheets.

HISHE: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

HISHE: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

How It Should Have Ended blows up the ending of Guardians 2, as Baby Groot kills everyone, Darth Vader drops by to give some daddy advice, Ego gets his way, and Mary Poppins is real. Also, literal Taserface is so much cooler.

Guardians Inferno

Guardians Inferno

“That weird thing by his side an infantilized sequoia. The two of them walk by, people say “Oh boy-a!”” David Hasselhoff, director James Gunn and the stars of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 went full ’70s in this madcap music video for the film’s end credits song.

Star-Lord Egg Attack Figure

Star-Lord Egg Attack Figure

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2: A Capella

Guardians of the Galaxy 2: A Capella

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.

Making Gamora’s Godslayer

Making Gamora’s Godslayer

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.

GotG Vol. 2 Life-size Groot Figure

GotG Vol. 2 Life-size Groot Figure

I Am Cuuuute! Hot Toys’ Baby Groot action figure stands just over 10″ tall, the same size as our favorite floral colossus as he appears in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. He comes with two extra heads, two pairs of hands and a removable onesie.

Guardians of the Galaxy: A Brief History

Guardians of the Galaxy: A Brief History

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.

GotG Awesome Mix Vol. 2

GotG Awesome Mix Vol. 2

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.

GoG Vol. 2 Weird Trailer

GoG Vol. 2 Weird Trailer

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.

GotG x Telltale (Trailer)

GotG x Telltale (Trailer)

The Guardians of the Galaxy find an artifact of “unspeakable power.” Unfortunately, Thanos the Mad Titan is after the thingamajig too. Even more unfortunate, our lovable bunch of a-holes each have their own reason to keep the artifact for themselves.

Guardians Vol. 2 (Trailer)

Guardians Vol. 2 (Trailer)

“All you do is yell at each other. You’re not friends.” Groot says hi, Gamora channels Marvel vs. Capcom, Drax kills a spaceship, Rocket laughs maniacally, and Peter meets someone special in the first full trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Avengers: Infinity War (First Look)

Avengers: Infinity War (First Look)

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.

Guardians Vol. 2 (Super Bowl Spot)

Guardians Vol. 2 (Super Bowl Spot)

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.

The Dark Side of Star-Lord

The Dark Side of Star-Lord

For many of us, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie is the only context we have for its characters. But if you look back at the comics, it turns out that Peter Quill isn’t always the goofball scoundrel we saw on the big screen, and is actually a bit of a dick.

Funko Pop x Guardians Vol. 2

Funko Pop x Guardians Vol. 2

While Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 isn’t coming to theaters until 5/2017, we’ve already got a look at Funko’s collectibles of Star Lord, Rocket, Drax, Gamora, Baby Groot, and a few new characters like Taserface and Mantis.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (Teaser)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (Teaser)

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy x Telltale

Guardians of the Galaxy x Telltale

Our favorite rag-tag space crew gets the Telltale treatment, with an upcoming series of adventure games done in the award winning game studio’s trademark style. The teaser gives us nothing, but we’re still stoked to play when it hits in 2017.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (Teaser)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (Teaser)

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.

QMx 2016 Spaceship Models

QMx 2016 Spaceship Models

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.

Omaze: Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Omaze: Guardians of the Galaxy 2

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.

GotG: Groot & Star-Lord’s Origins

GotG: Groot & Star-Lord’s Origins

Marvel is releasing animated shorts about the origin stories of the Guardians of the Galaxy to promote their upcoming Disney XD TV show. First up are Star-Lord and Groot. They don’t exactly reveal much, but they’re still fun to watch.

The Raptor 5 T-Shirt

The Raptor 5 T-Shirt

The ultimate tee for Chris Pratt fans envisions a world in which the superstar tames velociraptors from the comfort of his Star-Lord helmet. We’re betting that an infinity stone would have made quick work of Indominus Rex.

Awesome reMIX Volume 1

Awesome reMIX Volume 1

While the ’70s-infused soundtrack of Guardians of the Galaxy is one of our all-time favorites, Mike Relm took his edit in a more modern direction, creating a fun electronic remix made primarily from sounds bites sampled from the movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy Honest Trailer

Guardians of the Galaxy Honest Trailer

Honest Trailers reminds us just how silly the concept was for what somehow became the most fun and popular movie of 2014. When you really think about it, the premise sounds like something that should have been a box office flop.

The Avengers Sing Xmas Carols

The Avengers Sing Xmas Carols

Video editor and game developer James Covenant wishes you a very Marvel Christmas with this funny edit. Watch as he makes it seem like Cap, Iron Man, their friends and foes sing Christmas carols, with a special guest at the end.

How GotG Should’ve Ended

How GotG Should’ve Ended

How It Should Have Ended points out the many ways that Guardians of the Galaxy could have turned out differently, from that unchecked slave in The Collector’s office to Ronan not being duped by Star Lord’s silly gambit.

GotG Awesome Mix Vol. 1 Tape

GotG Awesome Mix Vol. 1 Tape

It’s official. Disney will release a limited edition replica of the Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 cassette tape. It will be exclusive to Record Store Day outlets from 11/28 to 12/31 and will come with a digital copy of the album.
