This past February at Toy Fair 2014 we were able to get our hands on LEGO Groot, but couldn't snap photos since the first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer hadn't yet made its way online at the time. With the month of March having come and gone with the trailer in its wake, it seems fans can finally feast their eyes on more than just LEGO's bricky version of Star-Lord's ship as part of the "The Milano Spaceship Rescue" set. Hit the jump for a full look at the upcoming "Starblaster Showdown" and "Knowhere Escape Mission" GoTG sets, plus final promo photos of the X-Men: Days of Future Past-flavored "X-Men vs. The Sentinel" set we saw a few months back.
Remember those LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie sets we saw at Toy Fair 2014 but weren't allowed to photograph? Two of them have finally rolled online at Canadian retailer Indigo. Hit the jump to see the Big Rig Snow Getaway and Turtle Van Takedown sets, along with their official product descriptions which may contain spoiler-ish information about the movie's plot.

Just in case you weren't satisfied with a look at 60% of a LEGO box a shutterbug snapped at the Nuremberg International Toy Fair last week, the toymaker has officially unveiled new images of one of its Guardians of the Galaxy sets in advance of a full preview starting this Sunday at Toy Fair 2014 (which we will be at in full force).
Thursday's links are waiting for you, after the jump.
DC's heroes -- particularly Batman -- were the ones that got the big-screen treatment in this weekend's box office winner, The LEGO Movie, but that isn't stopping fans from bringing a few Marvel movie characters to life, too.
The team of Antonio and Andrea Toscano have lovingly recreated the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier completely in LEGO bricks and minifigures, and it's pretty doggone fantastic. Check out the video (and the original trailer for comparison) after the jump.
There is a new Batman movie coming out in theaters this weekend, and it's easily the best Batman movie yet. It's also a great sci-fi movie, and a great Western, and a great Matrix remake, and it's especially a great comedy.
But first and foremost, it's a Lego movie. And it's the Lego movie. It does everything you want a Lego movie to do. And that's awesome.
A couple weeks ago, we took a look at DarthKy's proposed LEGO Cuusoo Assault On Wayne Manor set, a massive, three-level build that included Batman's ancestral home and the anti-crime basement beneath. Now, the same team is back with their newest proposed project: a massive LEGO recreation of the X-Mansion, including an underground Danger Room.
This thing is basically amazing, full of deceptively complicated pieces and fantastic nods to the history of everyone's favorite mutants. Check out more info and images below!
