Rated 5 out of 5 by Baron The best set of the best movie of the summer
So this is pretty much the coolest set I have put together in a while. At £70, it's a pretty steep price, however the unique construction and movie-faithful end result justifies the big spend.
The ship itself is much bigger than the box art does it credit for. It is weighty, sturdy, and has a well detailed interior (3 seats, pilot seat, weapon holders, fire extinguisher, cassette deck!). The building process itself is immensely satisfying; the way it comes together is a unique and fun way to build a set.
The figures are awesome, all come with loads of accessories and look good.
-Great build experience
-End result looks stunning, with good play and display value
-No 'landing gear', is hard to display without additional support

Rated 5 out of 5 by phelgo Milano is far better than Expected
Facts upfront - we have not done any star wars sets - so not a lot of 'spacehisp' builds. But the family are suckers for marvel and dc comicsl This set is by far the best Marvel set to date. Great build, nice introduction to some technic connectors. Lots of playability as the kids think the spaceship is awesome. The 5 minfigs push this set into must have territory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gregd Great spaceship and minifigs
I went to the Lego store on June 1 to have a look at the new releases and planned to buy a set, probably Ghostbusters or new Chima - however after looking around for a while I decided to go for this one, and it was a great choice. Normally I go for modulars or Lord of the Rings, this was the first Super Heroes set I've bought.
There is a lot more to the build of the spaceship than it looks at first, there is a whole underneath section that took a bit of time. The colours are great and the ship as a whole looks fantastic, it's very wide - don't think the pictures on the box really do it justice.
The minifigures are great, I'm not always as keen on the minifigs as the avid collectors but Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Ronan, The Saakaran are all great figs - really like the headpiece moulds for Star-Lord and Ronan.
I'm intrigued by Guardians of the Galaxy and now plan on watching the movie when it comes out soon, might even buy some of the comics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tratclif Another good LEGO spaceship in 2014
I've just finished building the Milano Spaceship Rescue set and taken the vehicles around the room for a few swooshes.
I bought the set mainly for the Milano. However the the minifigs are good, both in representing the characters in the movie and providing heroes and villains for your own stories. The Sakaaran spaceship is an odd little thing, but a nice ship that I'll understand better once I see the movie
I am quite pleased with the Milano build. The ship looks a little chunky from the side but at any other angle looks great. It's solidly built (with a couple of exceptions) and will navigate the living-room asteroid field without losing too many parts.
The build had a lot of new-to-me techniques, and the set has a good assortment of part for your own spaceship builds. It's not noted on the both but the two pairs of forward guns could be removed to be weapons for your minifigs.
The set is not perfect though. There's a dozen stickers, and even as an adult trying to do things carefully, I do have some off-center or out of alignment. One of the guns is a "round dome with stick" attached to a "telescope" (stick with knob and tube). I've always found that combination hard to keep together, and this gun is right on the bottom where a landing or stray thumb will remove the small part.
And now Star-lord and Benny the 1980-something space guy are off to share an adventure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scarilian "You're Welcome"
Not sure why my last review of this set has not appeared, but lets try again anyway as I really want to help people to understand how amazing this set is.
For a start the piece per price count is incredibly good - being 10.525p at the moment which is incredibly reasonable. Only a few sets are better priced in favour of the customer - such as the Super Secret Police Dropship.
The characters are mostly exclusive to this set such as Ronan, Drax and Gamora. Star-Lord is also nice with a cool helmet and additional hair. The detail is amazing and jaw dropping though especially on Drax and the Sakaraan
The ship is spectacular though a little smaller than the ship in the movie (Which has two seats at the front rather than one) - you need another set to fully expand this to its move-accurate level however it does seem possible. The Milano has a lot of nice little details and room for the four Guardians Of The Galaxy members that are in minifigure form.
The Sakaraan and his ship aren't really anything special - however its a nice little addition to the set and I feel it is re-enacting a scene from the film given some concept art I've seen.
The Milano Spaceship only has seats intended for 4 of the crew members while the Guardians Of The Galaxy team has 5 members. Granted Groot is not represented in a scale that would allow him to fit. A potted plant Groot or a mini-figure scale would have been appreciated as its awkward how the whole team cannot fit in the spaceship.
To experience the full playability a combination of this set and the Knowhere Escape Mission are required for the full GOTG cast of Groot, Rocket, Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax. I will definitely be purchasing another of these sets however as I feel it should really have had room for Groot...
This set is definitely worth the purchase despite some small issues. while a mini-figure Groot that could actually fit in the spaceship - the set itself is definitely worth the price and if it drops at all then I'd definitely recommend getting a second set to help expand the interior.
Take note Lego company - we need a Groot minifigure! :p

Rated 5 out of 5 by armadillosandwich We're the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Here's the biggie in Guardians of the Galaxy.
MILANO SPACESHIP: Awesome and accurate ship! Yellow and blue colors with a great interior which includes Star-Lord's old fashioned cassette. I can't imagine LEGO considered NOT doing this. There is room for Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, and also Rocket, even though Groot can't fit, the ship is spacey. It would have been interesting if they had made a minifigure size Groot exclusive for this ship, kind of like what they did to Metalbeard from the LEGO MOVIE. However, it's no biggie to me. If I'm gonna have a big meeting, I'll probably do it outside the ship anyway, since there's never going to be infinite maneuvarability otherwise. The ship also has poseable wings, two flick missiles and two of those new stud launching guns. The ship is a great size and the Guardians' big transport. Basically, it's necessary despite the price.
NECROCRAFT: This is a bit different from the one in the $20 set. It's still small and a good evil fighter with room for the Sakaaran pilot. It also has flick missiles.
Peter Quill/Star-Lord: The same as the other except for maroon pants rather than black. He has exclusive printing and can have a grinning face and blonde hair or special helmet mold. He has two laser pistols, the orb, and the big cannon they use in the movie to help defeat Ronan (I just forgot the name). Cool hero.
Gamora: She is exclusive. She has special suit printing as well, a smiling or angry green face and black hair with pink highlights. She is armed with a ninja sword.
Drax the Destroyer: Exclusive as well. He has a gray torso and head with red tattoos and is armed with two knives. Muscle-bound maniac!
Ronan the Accuser: Exclusive again. He has a blue face with black marks and angry expression. Along with his cape and special printing robes, he has a really cool hood mold. He is armed with his long hammer/Cosmi-Rod.
Sakaaran Soldier: Same as the other sets. He has special printing, a great rifle mold, a angry or masked face wth black hood. Great henchman.
OVERALL: This is the best Guardians set to get along with Knowhere. Automatically it will complete your collection. It's ten bucks overpriced as always, but you know how it is. Totally worth it overall. Thanks for reading, until next time, goodnight and party on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by masrbildrspek "We're the Guardians of the Galaxy"- Star-Lord
Hello, users! Mastrbildrspek here with my review on the Milano Spaceship Rescue set! Now, let me start by saying: this is the best LEGO Marvel set I've ever bought.
Now, to the official review:
Ronan's Necrocraft: Ronan's "personal Necrocraft" may be the smallest part of the set, but it's still awesome. It features...
Adjustable wings, two of the new spring-loaded missile launchers, and an opening cockpit (who would have guessed? :P). 5/5 bricks. Great job, LEGO!
The Milano: The biggest part of the set, the coolest LEGO Marvel set ever created, Star-Lord's spaceship and the name of the set itself... The Milano! Let's start off with the Milano's exterior:
The first thing about it, which I'm sure is the most unique part about it, is that the Milano resembles a bird.
Complete with feathers, a beak, and eyes. It's weapons include two flick missiles, and two pose-able stud blasters. It also has three engines on the back of it.
Interior: The inside of the Milano surprised me, because, unlike most LEGO vehicles, which have only one or two seats and no room, has a completely minifig accessible interior with four seats (counting the pilot seat), and two places for Quill's guns.
It also has an old-style tape recorder, a fire extinguisher, and two other places to clip weapons or other accessories on to.
At first, I was concerned about the Milano not having a place to put Quill's mask, but I guess since in the movie it just builds itself on to his face, they didn't really need to.
Again, 5/5 bricks. Awesome job, LEGO!
Gamora: Even though she's my least favorite minifig of this set, she's still really detailed. She has a double-sided face, the red Guardians of the Galaxy costume, Star-Lord and Drax's leg-piece, a katana, and a black hairpiece that's stained pink on the bottom of it. 5/5 bricks (for the detail and all). Great job, LEGO!
The Sakaaran: Even though he is called only "the Sakaaran" on the box, this mysterious minifig is not you're average generic henchman villain. Sure, his legs are not printed, but the detail on his torso makes up for it. He wears a robe/chest-plate, and looks like he has three bloody scars down his left shoulder (of course, I can't really be sure, because it seems to be on all of the Sakaaran stuff), he also has a double-sided head, one side with a weird looking mask, showing only one of his eyes, and the other side showing his actual alien face. He also comes with a huge gun. 5/5 bricks for this guy!
Drax: Ah, yes... Drax the Destroyer, another very detailed minifig, he has - as I said- the same leg-piece as Quill and Gamora, a really detailed torso with LEGO skull tattoos on his chest, back, head, and arms.
He also comes with two LEGO daggers. 5/5 bricks (once again)!
Ronan: (dun dun duuuuuun!): And here he is, the main antagonist of the new movie, the coolest LEGO Marvel villain ever designed- you guessed it... Ronan the Accuser!
He has got to be the most detailed LEGO Marvel villain I've ever seen,
he wears a black and silver robe, which looks like it's been smeared with blood in two X patterns (like on his Necrocraft), leg printing, back printing, a double-sided head, and a cape.
In this set, rather than Rocket or Quill, Ronan is the one with his hands on the Orb, he also comes with his iconic Universal Weapon, the Cosmi-Rod, as they have obviously renamed it, and an awesome hood piece that looks exactly like in his first comic except in black.
Plus, this is the only set he comes in. 5/5 bricks! Incredible job, LEGO!
Peter Quill/Star-Lord: Finally, the STAR of the set, one of the coolest LEGO superheroes ever made... Star-Lord! (Please don't ask who that is :P). Yet again, he is one of the most detailed minifigs ever.
At first, I was skeptical about his Ravagers costume, but, even though I like his iconic red coat and all a lot better, this costume is AWESOME!!!
He comes with a cool mask, an orange hairpiece to resemble his appearance in the film, and a double-sided head.
Some people might not agree, but I thought they did great on matching his minifig's face to Chris Pratt in the movie.
In addition to his mask, hairpiece and exclusive costume, he also comes with his rocket boot thruster flames, his two awesome pistols, and the Hadron Enforcer. 5/5 bricks, amazing job, LEGO (Again).
All in all, I give this set a 10/10 bricks.
Hope you enjoyed!
Until next time,
