This summer, while out in Anaheim for the D23 Expo, my friend Adam and I had the chance to experience, me for the first time, the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! attraction, which recently replaced the Tower of Terror attraction at Disney California Adventure. Now, while I will always hold a special place in my heart for Tower of Terror, especially the Walt Disney World version (which is still in operation), I will say that this ride, based off the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, is pretty great.
While visiting the ride and surrounding area, we brought with us a few of our Guardians of the Galaxy collectibles to pose in front of the Collector’s Fortress, the backdrop for Mission Breakout!. First up is my Disney Infinity figures, featuring Star Lord, Rocket, Groot, Draw, Gamora, and Yondu. This is probably one of my most favorite play sets over the three iterations of Disney Infinity, so being able to bring them with me all the way to California for this group shot was a lot of fun.
Next up, the Rocket and Baby Groot Q-Fig from Quantum Mechanix. I love the look of this figure, and it fits into the ride perfectly, seeing as Groot in this timeframe of the storyline is still growing… shortly after the events of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Last up are a few of the Funko Dorbz, featuring Star Lord, Rocket, Drax, and Gamora in their prisoner outfits from the first movie. These Dorbz were exclusive to the D23 Expo. Also present are Ravenger Groot w/ Eye (Walmart Exclusive) and the Specialty Series Cosmo, who is featured in the Tivan Collection in the attraction’s queue (you can see his pic there in the center at the beginning of the article).
Well, that concludes today’s mini photoshoot at Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout!. If you have a chance to visit the Disneyland Resort and experience the ride, you should. I even hear that this Halloween, they have some special scenes for the holiday. Hmmmmm…. if I could swing a trip out there I would. Oh well, maybe next time.
Until next time, true believers…. Excelsior!
