This past weekend was Toy Fair 2014, and the action figures for Guardians of the Galaxy were among the big “reveals”. Normally, we don’t zero in on a particular toy unless it’s very cool, but in the case of this Guardians of the Galaxy toy for Star Lord (Chris Pratt), we thought we’d share it because it gives a slight hint of the character’s attitude, which most people aren’t aware of. For instance, you may not know about his penchant for 80s music or that he has a Walkman. These little touches are making me excited for the movie, and it’s cute that they made it part of one the action figures.
Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:
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 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 Peter 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” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
