Guardians of the Galaxy play set was just announced this morning. Here are some more of the technical details surrounding the play set as well.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set follows Star-Lord and his fellow Guardians as they arrive at Knowhere, having just stolen a powerful cosmic object from the villainous Ronan the Accuser. Players will guide the team as they race to protect Knowhere from Ronan and his attacking Sakaaran fleet while keeping their newly liberated item safe from the villain’s evil grasp.
Playable characters for the Play Set include Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Gamora and Groot, as well as 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 be also playable in the all-new Toy Box 2.0, along with all characters previously released for Disney Infinity. Players will be able to use these characters, plus hundreds of Marvel and Disney-themed items, locations, props and vehicles to create new adventures in customized worlds. Additionally, the Guardians of the Galaxy characters will partake in one of the new structured Toy Box Games now offered in Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes. The 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.POWER DISCS

What are your thoughts on the Guardians of the Galaxy play set? It certainly looks (like the other Marvel play set), that it's really involved and has a ton to do within the set as well.
If you really want to dig into the concept artwork from the set as well as view some additional in-game footage, our friends at the Disney Infinity Fans Forum were at the Studio Gobo (the co-creator of the Pirates of the Caribbean and Guardians of the Galaxy play set) to get a hands on look. It's a great writeup with tons of details, so if you're really into this play set, I highly recommend checking it out here
