Guardians of the Galaxy has been in theaters for months now — long enough to have come and gone from most markets. But it is still going strong as a force. Just look at the sales of the soundtrack, which is now hitting vinyl. Avengers: Age of Ultron probably doesn’t need a push from Guardians, but Marvel is going to use interest in the space opera to pitch the Avengers sequel regardless. There will be an Age of Ultron preview on the Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray and DVD, which hit in December. In addition to info on that detail, we’ve also got a Guardians VFX breakdown and some great effects images. Read More »

The fact that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was such a big box office hit was a huge surprise on its own. It was only eclipsed by the success of its soundtrack. The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack hit #1 on the Billboard charts and is certified Gold, with sales over 500,000. Pretty impressive for an album consisting only of previously released songs. In fact, it’s the first such album to ever hit #1.
Now, the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack gets taken up a notch. Mondo is releasing it on vinyl with art by the awesome Tyler Stout. The Guardians of the Galaxy vinyl is currently available for pre-order and comes with a randomly inserted handbill.
Below, see the front and back cover art as well as all the handbills. Read More »

Each of the Guardians of the Galaxy were lovable in their own special way, but if we’re being honest the real heart of the team was Groot. The taciturn tree-creature was equal parts badass and sweet, and his adorable dance moves made him the must-have toy of the season. Too bad Disney’s been dragging its feet on actually putting out said toy.
The good news is that the company is getting closer, as Dragon Models announced today that it will release a 7″ Groot toy. This one looks a lot more like the Groot of the film than that earlier Funko bobblehead did. The bad news is that it’s still not really the Groot toy we want. Hit the jump for details on the new Groot toy. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet. Why haven’t you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet?)

In a detail-rich movie, one of the most crazy detailed bits of Guardians of the Galaxy was the Collector’s museum. Packed with relics from across the galaxy, I expect the Collector’s place is one of the first locations most fans will be excited to freeze-frame through one we have the film on blu. Before that disc release, we can see some alternate visions of the place thanks to a set of early Collector concept art. Read More »
