A First Look at Guardians of the Galaxy Legos!

With Toy Fair kicking off, we’re getting a look at a lot of cool toys to expect over the year, but for me, Lego is where it’s at especially with so many Marvel movies coming out. Well, courtesy of the Marvel website, we get a look at the Milano Spaceship Rescue set #76021 for the Lego Guardians of the Galaxy line.

Debuting in stores this June, check our a first glimpse of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax and Ronan in Lego form! In addition, the set will also include a Sakaaran Soldier, and will consist of 665 pieces priced at $74.99.

There are two other sets that have to be revealed.
