Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is less than five months away; because of that, we've been slowly getting more information about the space a-holes' sequel. Earlier this week, we got our first look at Kurt Russell's Ego and Elizabeth Debicki's Ayesha through toy pictures.
Now - because we are fans and we look for details of a movie anywhere we can - three newly-surfaced Lego sets reveal key sequences for Vol. 2, which help shed some light on where the story is going. Let's take a look:
#1 Star-Lord, Yondu And Baby Groot Vs. Ayesha
- Baby Groot
Important things to note right off the bat are the construction pods from the first Guardians of the Galaxy, which could indicate the heroes are visiting Nowhere once again, and Yondu and Peter Quill teaming up against Ayesha. What I find particularly interesting about the set is the remote controller the villainess is holding.
So a question popped into my head: Could the controller be the same one that Rocket lectures Baby Groot about? It makes sense, especially with Rocket's statement about the importance of the bomb:
"The fate of the universe lies in your hands."
... I have to say, I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with either of those two having control of a bomb to end the universe.
#2 Mantis And Rocket Vs. Taserface
- Rocket Racoon
This appears to take place in the forest planet the Guardians land in shown in the trailer. In case you are not aware, Taserface is a new Ravager who was announced during last year's San Diego Comic Con, portrayed by Chris Sullivan:
Rumors surfaced about Mantis being kept by her and Peter Quill's father, Mogo, as a prisoner, so it's possible Rocket is rescuing the future, plant-loving superheroine. Taking into account that Mogo previously hired the Ravagers to take Quill from Earth, it's reasonable to assume he could have hired them to keep his daughter from escaping.
#3 The Guardians Vs. The Obelisk
- Baby Groot
The Obelisk has been a big part of the marketing for Vol. 2, having appeared in one of the first pieces of concept art released, as well as the two trailers, so his appearance in this set is not a surprise. What is a surprise though, is the inclusion of Nebula. We know she will eventually join the Guardians in their quest...
... But seeing where she was by the end of Guardians of the Galaxy, Nebula becoming a heroine seems unlikely to happen at the very beginning; therefore her appearance in the battle against the Obelisk points to the scene taking place near the climax.
Because of the inter-dimensional-looking set they were in during the trailer while fighting and Gamora's sword (both big plot points that are unlikely to be glossed over during a montage) it's likely the beast has an important role in the film. Could Ego or Ayesha are using it to take care of the Guardians for them?
Plus, let's not forget the fact that the heroes are using the Milano to fight the thing, which tells me the Obelisk's got some serious fire power.

- Will Yondu And Mantis Survive 'Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2'?
- The Guardians Of The Galaxy Are Confirmed For 'Avengers: Infinity War' — What Will Their Role Be?
Keep in mind to take these scenes with a grain of salt as exciting as they may be, because it's possible they don't happen exactly the same in the movie as they appear in the play sets.
Fortunately, the same happened with a Spider-Man: Homecoming Lego sets: They described two scenes from the film and, from what we've been able to piece together, they turned out to be pretty accurate. Hopefully, the same thing happens with Vol. 2.
Which of these new scenes are you looking forward to the most? Let me know in the comments!
