GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Is Getting Some LEGO Sets And Maybe A Super Bowl Spot
guardThe London Toy Fair is currently underway, and some big news is already coming out of the big convention. It has just been revealed that Guardians of the Galaxy will be getting the LEGO treatment. Most Marvel movies get a LEGO set or two to go along with their movie release, but the Guardians will be getting three complete build sets later this year. There was no word on what the three sets will be, but Bleeding Cool has heard that one of them may be based on the team’s ship and will include mini-figs for Rocket, Groot, Star-Lord, Gamora, and Drax. Other movies getting LEGO-ized are The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The Guardians of the Galaxy were playable characters in the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game, and there was even a billboard teasing the movie so this isn’t a huge surprise.
What is more of a surprise is the fact the James Gunn directed flick could have it’s first official trailer shown during this year’s Super Bowl. ScreenCrush had a rundown of the movies that will get/possibly could get a Super Bowl trailer, and they had Guardians listed. Disney had secured two spots for the big game but now it’s being reported they are trying to lock in a third spot. While some think it may be for Maleficent, others are saying it is indeed for Guardians of the Galaxy. A few unconfirmed reports are starting to circulate and back up this claim, but we’ll just have to wait and see if it happens when the game kicks off February 2nd on Fox. With the movie coming out in August, now would be an opportune time to drop a trailer. And there’s no bigger stage than the Super Bowl. The other big movies that ScreenCrush say could be/will be getting Super Bowl spots will be Transformers 4, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Need for Speed, RoboCop, The Expendables 2, X-Men: Days of Future, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. What do you think? Do you hope the Guardians drop by for the Super Bowl?
