Executive producer John Vignocchi opened an advanced Guardians of the Galaxy screening earlier this week by announcing that the film’s main characters will be making their way into Disney Infinity’s upcoming Marvel Super Heroes 2.0 version. Like the Spider-Man set unveiled at this year’s E3, five Guardians of the Galaxy character figurines will be available for use in an exclusive level playset and in the game’s open-ended Toy Box mode.

The playset will contain figurines for Star-Lord and Gamora, and will hit store shelves alongside Infinity’s 2.0 launch this fall. The other three characters will be available separately. Drax, an up-close melee fighter, Rocket Raccoon, a dual-wielding pistoleer, and Groot, a “Dhalsim-like” character who extends his limbs for medium-range attacks, will all cost extra. Studio Gobo, who worked on Pirates of the Carribean for Disney Infinity’s first iteration, designed the Guardians of the Galaxy playset.
