If we talk about BIG movie IP’s, there are very few that are bigger than LEGO Marvel.
That’s why we’re getting a LEGO Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy advent calendar this year!
Recently reported by Promobricks, the details of this set are few and far between. Luckily we can make some educated guesses.
But first, let’s start with what we DO know:
Firstly we know that it is set number 76231, and it will be released on September 1st 2022.
It will also likely retail for $44.99, comparable to LEGO advent calendars, such as the Star Wars calendar.
We know it will be based around the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which will be released onto Disney+ in December.
And that pretty much wraps up all that we know for sure!
LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy 2022 Calendar Minifigures
There are rumored to be 7 Minifigures in this set. This fits with what we’ve seen in previous LEGO Marvel advent calendars.
While we’re unsure who will be included, we can make some educated guesses.
So let’s look at what Minifigures we think might find behind some of those calendar doors!
Being the lead member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, it makes sense that we’d get Star Lord (AKA Peter Quill).
He’ll likely come with his two iconic guns, though we don’t know if he’ll have his mask.
While we’re still unsure of Gamora’s role in the Holiday Special, it makes sense that she would be part of the 2022 LEGO Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Advent Calendar set.
As Star Lord’s love interest, it would make absolute sense. She’ll also more than likely come with a sword.
A key member of the Guardians of the Galaxy team, Drax carries dual fighting knives.
It’s also rumored that the next Guardians movie will be Dave Bautista’s final appearance as Drax, so we imagine that they will try to get as many Minifigures of the character out there as they can.
A newer member of the Guardians team, it would still make a lot of sense for Nebula to be in this particular LEGO Marvel set.
We can’t think of any specific weapons she might have, so let us know in the comments if you can think of any!
He might be tiny, but Rocket has a big attitude and a bigger gun.
He’s a shorter Minifigure, so it would make sense for him to be packed with a larger weapon.
Also, all Rocket Minifigure sculpts have been great so far, so LEGO doesn’t need to improve on it!
Speaking only three words (four if you count him saying “WE are groot” in the first Guardians movie), Groot is an absolute fan favorite.
Without him, there’s no way they would release a Guardians of the Galaxy advent calendar set. And we can’t blame LEGO for giving us what we want!
This Minifigure is a little more nebulous (ha – see what we did there?!)
While Nebula’s inclusion makes sense, it also makes sense that she wouldn’t be included, too, perhaps being replaced by Thor, an honorary member of the Guardians.
Still, we went with Nebula over Thor as the Holiday Special is set AFTER Thor: Love and Thunder.
And that’s it!
That’s right, we have no more clues or even guesses about what might be included in the LEGO 76231 Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy advent calendar!
The details are very sparse, and we don’t want to speculate too much.
We would say that all of the Minifigures mentioned above may come with seasonal-related outfits or accessories.
For example, we might get Star Lord in a Christmas sweater or Drax with a Santa hat.
Look at Spider-Man and Tony Stark from the 2021 LEGO Marvel advent calendar;
There will undoubtedly be micro builds in the set, though what they might be is anyone’s guess.
Though the previous LEGO Marvel calendars have proven, there could also be general Marvel things.
For example, last year’s calendar had blast effects and targets, which made playing with the Minifigures extra fun.
Do we think the Guardians of the Galaxy 2022 LEGO calendar will be worth it? Yes, totally!
While it’s clear that we don’t have any solid facts about the contents yet, we can make some educated guesses.
We can be fairly certain of the characters we’ll get, it’s just everything else that has left us scratching our heads so far.
But if we use previous LEGO Marvel calendars as a reference, we know that what we get will be fantastic. They haven’t let us down yet!
So what do you think?
Let us know if you agree with our educated guesses regarding the Minifigures! Also, what else do you think will be included?
As always, it’s always great to read your thoughts and opinions!
