LEGO continues to astound and delight children and adults alike with their series of superheroes sets. One of their most popular superheroes sets is based on the Marvel Comics Guardians of the Galaxy. This story centers on a whimsical character who calls himself Star-Lord and his adventures in outer space with his friends Groot, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, and Drax. As a child Star-Lord, who is really named Peter Quill, was abducted by an alien spaceship. When he grew to adulthood, he then began many wondrous adventures as Star-Lord. With the LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy sets, your child can recreate the adventures of Star-Lord and his friends. The Knowhere Escape Mission, Starblaster Showdown Building, and Milano Spaceship Rescue set are three sets in the Guardians of the Galaxy series that are featured herein. These sets will provide hours of enjoyment for your little Guardians of the Galaxy enthusiast.
LEGO Marvel SuperHeroes Guardians of The Galaxy 76081 Set
The LEGO Marvel SuperHeroes Guardians of The Galaxy 76081 Set – Milano Vs the Abilisk brings the majority of the main Guardians of the Galaxy stars back together for a battle against the vicious Abilisk creature. Star-Lord, Gamora, Nebula and Drax are all on-hand to create a cunning plan that will defeat this strange beast once and for all, and save little Groot in the process. Each character has their own weapon, such as Gomora’s sword and Drax’s daggers and while they will help to cut down the moving tentacles, it will take more than that to kill the Abilisk.
As those two heroes distract the Abilisk from the ground and try and retrieve Groot from the tentacles, Star-Lord has the chance to attack from above in the impressive, buildable Milano spaceship. This blue, orange and grey craft has an opening cockpit so the figures chan climb aboard, a cargo areas with a release and adjustable wings. Star-Lord can use his flying skills to position the ship over the big, closing jaws of the Abilisk and drop the bomb inside. As long as the rest of the team are safely out the way that is. If that fails, he can always fly over with his jetpack.
LEGO Super Heroes – Marvel Guardians of The Galaxy Ayesha’s Revenge 76080 Set
The breadth of the Guardians of the Galaxy universe means that there is room for plenty of interesting battle scenes with unusual craft and characters. This is definitely the case with the new LEGO Super Heroes – Marvel Guardians of The Galaxy Ayesha’s Revenge building set, which is due for release in March 2017. This set sees Yondu and Star-Lord out to take down Ayesha as she unleashes her Golden Drone and wreaks havoc on the landscape. This adjustable drone is packed with dangerous shooters and she can explode the rocks around her to slow down the pursuing heroes.
This is terrible news for Yondu, Star-Lord and the little Groot figure that are following along behind, especially if they happen to crash into one of those falling rocks. This is where the tool kit of the wrench, fire extinguisher, Annulax battery and jetpack come in handy. If they are able to avoid the rocks, they can follow behind with their spring-loaded missiles aimed squarely on the drone. The spaceship also boasts opening side panels and a sliding cockpit. Other accessories include Star-Lord’s blasters and Yondu’s golden arrow. It is a fast-paced adventure with a lot at stake.
LEGO Super Heroes Ravager Attack 76079 Set
Every great Marvel villain has a grand scheme that they are sure cannot fail. That is precisely the case with Taserface in the new LEGO Super Heroes Ravager Attack 76079 building set. This new 2017 LEGO set explores his attempts to attack the forest home of Groot with his Ravager outlaws in order to exert his dominance on the area. He has all the right tools to do so. He has a large spaceship with an opening cockpit and some stud shooters, and he is also armed with one of the largest guns in the whole galaxy. The problem is, the area is not quite as deserted as he thinks.
Down below, hidden in the branches of a buildable tree element, are Mantis and Groot’s faithful friend, Rocket Raccoon. Rocket and Mantis have hidden away in the tree to build a large six-stud shooter and wait for Taserface to arrive. If they time the attack right, they should be able to drive off Taserface and his army and protect the creatures of the forest land. This is a different set to some of the action packed battle scenes, but it is still a crucial addition to a Guardians of the Galaxy collection.
LEGO Superheroes 76020 Knowhere Escape Mission Set
The Knowhere Escape Mission LEGO set features Rocket Raccoon and Groot as they try to escape from the planet Knowhere. This set comes with a mining station, mining pod, and a five-inch tall Groot figure. It also contains three mini-figures that include Rocket Raccoon, the cyborg Nebula, and a Sakaaran. The Sakaaran and Nebula want to prevent these two superheroes from escaping the planet, but these two superheroes will not be stopped.
The mining station has a tower that has a trap door, a bazooka that fires, a catapult that contains fire bombs, and a docking station for the pod. The mining pod has a cockpit, claws, and fuel bombs. If Rocket Raccoon is going to escape from Knowhere, he’ll need weapons. This set comes with a space blaster for Raccoon, an orb, and a sword. Groot and Rocket Raccoon will have to be quick on their feet as they battle against Nebula with her swords and the Sakaaran with his bazooka.
LEGO Superheroes Starblaster Showdown Set
With the Starblaster Showdown LEGO set, your child will imagine helping Star-Lord defeat a Sakaaran as they battle in their spacecrafts. This building set features Star-Lord’s starblaster and a Sakaaran’s necrocraft. The necrocraft has a cockpit that opens and wings that can be adjusted. The starblaster also has a cockpit and adjustable wings, but it also comes with two flick missiles.
The mini-figures included in this set are Star-Lord, a Sakaaran, and a Nova officer. Star-Lord will really have to maneuver the starblaster perfectly if he wants to defeat the Sakaaran, but he should have no problem with the help of the Nova officer and the three starblasters that come with this set. Other accessories include boot thrusters, handcuffs, and an orb. This set is special because Star-Lord is wearing his iconic suit. Another unique feature of this set is Nova officer, which can’t be found in other Guardians of the Galaxy LEGO sets. Your child can happily imagine flying through the galaxy and defeating the enemy with this Marvel Superheroes LEGO set.
LEGO Superheroes The Milano Spaceship Rescue Set
