LEGO Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 sets officially revealed
The LEGO Group has officially revealed three new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 sets, all of which will arrive on shelves a full month ahead of the MCU movie.
That places them in stark contrast to 76256 Ant-Man Construction Figure, which won’t be available until three months after Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania arrives in cinemas. The three Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 sets also represent potentially one of the final opportunities to grab these characters in minifigure form, as the movie wraps up James Gunn’s comic book trilogy.
Included among these sets are Star-Lord, Drax, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Mantis, Nebula, Adam Warlock and – best of all – Baby Rocket. (Where is Gamora? Why is Gamora?) The trio of models run the gamut in price point and subject matter, ranging from what’s basically a single wall all the way up to (an understandably scaled-down version of) the gang’s enormous new ship.
Check out all three new sets below, along with their prices and piece counts.
76253 Guardians of the Galaxy Headquarters
Price: £8.99 / $9.99 / €9.99 Pieces: 67 Minifigures: 2 Release date: April 1, 2023
76253 Guardians of the Galaxy Headquarters offers the cheapest way yet to pick up a Groot minifigure, along with Star-Lord in the Guardians’ new uniform. The build doesn’t look like much to write home about, but this is one of the most affordable LEGO Marvel sets in recent memory, and that’s nothing to sniff at. Plus, both characters have printed legs.
76254 Baby Rocket’s Ship
Price: £29.99 / $34.99 / €34.99 Pieces: 330 Minifigures: 2 Release date: April 1, 2023
There’s a non-zero chance Baby Rocket will steal the show in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and the same might be said for his minifigure in these three LEGO sets. The tiny rodent uses a recoloured LEGO Friends piece, and will probably be the major selling point of 76254 Baby Rocket’s Ship.
76255 The New Guardians’ Ship
Price: £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99 Pieces: 1,108 Minifigures: 5 Release date: April 1, 2023
A true minifigure-scale version of 76255 The New Guardians’ Ship would be impossibly large, so the LEGO Group has understandably presented the vehicle at a more manageable scale here. It still captures the craft’s distinct (and unusual) shape, which benefits from a brick-built stand to keep it upright. You get a strong smattering of Guardians characters here, too. (But still… where is Gamora?)
