Guardians Of The Galaxy Movie...

I'm this close to ordering Rocket, Gamora, and Nova before my free trial for Amazon Prime is up in a couple of days.

 

I think I'm going to want that Groot and I know those three will be the tougher ones to find at retail (my Spider-toy-sense tells me so).

Somehow, I don't think we'll encounter the problems with these flying off shelves that we had with certain characters from the Cap or Spidey lines. That being said, Gamora could be a problem. She is a female character, plus for some reason, sci-fi geeks are all about the green chicks.

 

I don't know if this helps but everyone except Iron Man and Star Lord are one to a case. I only preordered Nova been wanting that version for a good long while, I'll hold out on the others for now maybe we get the comic outfits as an SDCC exclusive including that comic Star Lord that was shown last year.

Everyone's going to want that comic Nova. It will go Nova, Gamora/Rocket (tie), Drax, Starlord and a distant, distant last place for Iron Man. There. I predicted the desirability of the whole wave months before its release :)

I've always been vaguely aware of the Guardians of the Galaxy comics, but I've never read any of them. I do have the first issue of the recent reboot, but I don't know if I've even read the whole thing. So I guess perhaps I don't have any preconceived notions of what I'd want to see in this movie. As a casual comic-book-movie-lover/comic-book-fan though, I'd have to say I'm intrigued by this movie and/or subsequent figures and what-not. It's just unusual enough to be wildly interesting and different to me...it doesn't seem to be your typical, formulaic comic-book movie, which I find refreshing and potentially entertaining. It makes me think of Firefly-meets-X-Men or something, and I think I'll like it. And even though I've always found Rocket Raccoon as a character incredibly ridiculous over the years, there's something surprisingly cool about seeing a vicious woodland creature in space wielding a high-tech machine gun while snarling and spraying bullets all over a space-prison. (lol)

If the first issue you have is the Bendis Guardians then I don't blame you for not finishing it. I actually think this movie has something for everyone comic book fans will be glad to have this team adapted onscreen, kids will love Rocket Raccoon, Doctor Who geeks are gonna love Karen Gillian as Nebula, Sci Fi fans will like all the aliens and space stuff and having basically a sort of Star Wars movie with 100% less lightsabers no but in all seriousness the movie looks fun and I applaud Marvel for taking the risk. I can't wait to see Ronan in action and what they do with Thanos.

John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey. Now lets let that sink in.

 

They haven't even announced a Nova (one of my all-time favorite super-heroes) movie yet, as far as I know there are no plans to ever do one . . . and yet they've already taken a huge step toward "F"ing it up beyond any hope of reprieve.

people are either gonna find it funny or offensive.

 

I know...which makes me question the necessity and strength of the material. How many lil moments does this film actually need to hammer in "a talking raccoon with attitude?" We get it...time aside, how much money was wasted in this lil moment? Firing large guns and talking trash not enough to show metaphorically that this lil guy has balls that you actually have to show that he has balls as well?

 

Offensive? Maybe not, but pretty lowbrow for comedy. The 7 year olds and 37 year olds going on 7 will get a chuckle...

Let's face it, deep down we were all expecting Star Wars but are getting Mom and Dad Save the Universe.

Glad someone else got a bit of a "The Fifth Element" feel from things. I'm hoping that this is awesome, but preparing for the worst. The actual comic series wasn't the best (in my opinion) though I enjoyed some of the older stuff.

I just picked up my first Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Infinite figure the other day: Star-Lord!

 

I'm loving this guy. He has a ton of accessories with him and is just a stellar looking figure.

I reviewed him here just in case anyone is interested or undecided: Star Lord review, man!

I found him on Amazon. He's still there, too!

 

I just picked up Drax who is pretty darn near perfect. I love his articulation and he doesn't have the gummy, rubbery joints!

 

Drax Review

 

 

I'm really wanting to track down Nova, Guardian, and Rocket now. I'll pick up Iron Man on sale, as he seems to be easy to find.

anyone know what the deal is with Nova from the Guardians of the Galaxy legends figures? Is he a variant?

 

he's not, he's just pack 1 per case.
