Marvel.com recently conducted an interview with Cort Lane, Supervising Producer of Marvel's animated shows, including Ultimate Spider-Man and Avengers Assemble. Lane talked a little bit about the look of the Guardians of the Galaxy in those series.
"When we went into pre-production on the ["Guardians and Spaceknights" episode of Avengers Assemble], they were not far into pre-production on the [Guardians of the Galaxy] film for us to match up with what they were doing. So, we made our best guess based on what was happening in publishing. We’ll start to align more as appearances of the Guardians continue."
This is good news for Galaxians (fans of Guardians), since many people have complained about Starlord's look recently. With longstanding rumors of a Guardians of the Galaxy animated series in the works, hopefully we can expect to see Starlord's much-lauded mask appear. For the rest of the interview, click here.
In other news, Trends International has begun selling these Guardians of the Galaxy stickers (pictured to the left), based off of the characters in the upcoming film (We asked Trends for a larger image, but this is the best one they could give us). The stickers feature Starlord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, The Milano Ship, a Nova Corps officer, the Guardians of the Galaxy logo, the Starlord fire emblem, and the Nova Corps emblem. There is probably another sheet underneath the one pictured with other stickers too. If we can track one down, we'll post better pictures.
We were told that these are being sold now, so check Walmart, ToysRUs, and Target. If you find them, send us an e-mail and let us know where. Or you could always drop us a comment below, of course.
