    I said it in another thread, but I'm surprised it's only the Guardians as heroes in this. They've done 2 other LEGO Marvel specials, both released around the time of LEGO Marvel video games, and both went broader character wise.

    I'm happy to see Marvel trying their hand at another Lego special, since those are always a lot of fun :anime:.

    Sounds like we can also expect an eclectic bunch of characters for the Guardians to have to deal with, between Thanos, the Ravgers, Nebula, and the return of Ronan :eek:.

    I think we can also probably get how the "Build Stone" is going to work, given this is a Lego special :p.

    I just hope there isn't any surprise recasting like there was in the last Lego special :sweat:.

    This sounds great but I feel like it will work a lot better as a series but new Guardians is still new Guardians. Can't see this being a mistake or ending badly.

    The LEGO shorts are almost always fun (there was a recent Scooby-Doo LEGO special that was better than I expected) so I'm excited.

    He wrote the last Lego special, so I guess it's not too surprising to see him writing this :).

    Cort Lane talked a little about this LEGO Special in an interview (which contains big spoilers for the Guardians of the Galaxy show - I'm just posting the part relevant to this Special here).

    And even before that, there was LEGO Maximum Overload, which I don't remember ever seeing as a half-hour special - just 5 shorts.
