Marvel's ambitious undertaking, the "superhero space opera" 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' will release its first trailer this coming week, and you'll all finally see what we've been raving about since Comic-Con.

There are only a few days left to wait for the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' trailer to officially arrive, but if you absolutely can't wait that long for a look at Marvel's new franchise, we've got a look at one of the new LEGO sets for the upcoming movie, including a shot of their spaceship and a first look at the villainous Ronan the Accuser.
