    This was actually really fun, but then again, the LEGO specials are always amusing.

    I'm glad they got the cast of the TV show back; it was fun hearing the voice actors ham it up in a way that they can't always do on the actual show. The only awkward one was Mantis; don't get me wrong, I thought the actress did fine, but its weird because she voiced an evil Mantis in the show.

    Poor Drax; at this point, it's so obvious that he's outmatched against Thanos that it's a literal joke now.

    Hey, Stan Lee got two lines this time.

    The running gag about the cheap remote controller was funny. Should have splurged.

    The animation was really sharp; LEGO animation gets better and better.

    It was kind of weird having the cast from the cartoons voicing the characters with their Vol 2 designs since those are now completely different from the designs of the show, such as Yondu having his fin, along with Jennifer Hale voicing MCU Mantis rather then the Mantis she actually played in the cartoon :sweat:.

    Although it was actually nice to see a good Mantis helping out the Guardians here :).

    It was also fun to see Ronan again, and getting to see Christopher Adams display some comedic chops in the role ;).

    Gamora being a bratty teenage daughter to Thanos was so hilarious. Almost as hilarious as Ronan and Nebula bickering like an old married couple :p.

    I'm glad the cartoons only give us brief spurts of Baby Groot rather then Baby Groot 100% of the time for synergy.

    The Bob Kelso two thumbs gag doesn't work with no thumbs.

    LOL at the return of Taserface!

    Run away! Run away!

    I laughed that the problem was that the decals were upside-down.

    Cute special. ***1/2.
