I'm starting this review a few days before the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie comes out; I'm excited, I have tickets to a double-header with the first in IMAX on Thursday. The first GotG movie represents something very unique in the Super Hero genre; a genre I really enjoy, but is starting to show a few problems. The Marvel movies, which are all entertaining, are very formulaic. The look and appearance of the movies themselves has become somewhat bland. Marvel tends to stick to flat colors and taking off brightness... giving Cap a dull blue suit, making Spider-Man less shiny looking, darker colors for Doctor Strange, etc. DC goes sepia and covers everything in grit; suicide squad made Harley colorful, but everything else was gray and brown with an extra helping of grit and dust. Guardians of the Galaxy has been bucking all of those trends; it's absurdly colorful. It mixes...(read more)

Pros: I don't like to say this, but the figures are amazing. Ham and Rex are insanely cute, and the overall selection of figures is quite nice. Additionally, the look of the set is spot on, and there's a number of fun features to be had.
Cons: The price.
Comments: I was striving to think of more cons for the set, but really, it's only real problem is the price. The figures are excellent, it looks almost precisely like the source material, it has an excellent parts package, and is just overall a very strong set. That being said, it is in no way worth forty bucks. I understand it's because of the large pieces and the specially-molded figures, but I can't look at it and justify it being that much. Ah, well. Besides that infraction, it is a superb set, and I'd say if you can find it discounted (I got it for Christmas myself), definitely don't miss the chance to pick it up. 7/10 overall.

Pros: Great details, printed parts, lots of figs, and it shoots pizzas!
Cons: Can't see too many with this set
Comments: This set is really darn-near perfect. The look is spot-on, which is aided by printed parts (no stickers here!). Comes with several windscreen parts. The truckbed cover pops off fairly easily to seat Rex and others in the truckbed. The pizza shooter actually works quite well, though it is mounted in the chassis so it works best on a hard surface (pizzas slide) and does not send pizzas airborne.
