Like other Disney Infinity Play Sets, “Guardians of the Galaxy” has its own unique storyline. This one begins with the Guardians stealing a powerful cosmic object from the villainous Ronan the Accuser. They arrive at Knowhere and must protect it from Ronan and his attacking Sakaaran fleet while keeping their newly acquired item safe from the villain’s evil control.

Playable characters for the Play Set include Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora and Groot along with a couple of  crossover characters: Iron Man, from “The Avengers” Play Set, and Nova, from  the “Spider-Man” Play Set. Mission givers will include Cosmo, The Collector and Yondu.

Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora and Groot will also be playable in the all-new Toy Box 2.0 where they can be used along with all of the character that have been previously released for Disney Infinity. The new characters can be used with hundreds of Marvel and Disney-themed items, locations, props and vehicles to create new adventures in worlds that players create themselves. “Guardians of the Galaxy” characters will be involved in one of the amazing new features of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes: structured Toy Box Games. A new Toy Box Game, called “Attack on Asgard,” has Loki opening a series of portals that allow an army of Frost Giants to invade Odin’s Palace at Loki’s command. The Giants threaten to lay waste to Asgard, rob Odin’s Palace and ultimately grant control of the throne to Loki.
