WARNING: SPOILERY TERRITORY AHEAD!!
For those procrastinators who have not yet launched off the couch and into a multiplex to watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, there are plot points ahead you may wish to avoid, so beware!
Long live the Milano!! Yes, the sexy curves and predatory style of the colorful M-class starship, Milano, are no more. Well, it's currently in a state of disrepair after a massive crash landing on the planet Berhert, so it may be resurrected in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Until then, Peter Quill and company thumb down alternate forms of interstellar transportation in the forms of two brand new ships designed by James Gunn's imaginative crew of artists.
Here's a sample of the menacing Ravager Quadrant and the Laser Drill Ship as drawn by veteran concept artist George Hull (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Blade Runner 2049, Godzilla: King of Monsters). The Quadrant was a detachable section of Yondu's massive Ravager ship, the Eclector, and is the crab-like starship that the Guardians board at the end of movie.
The stubby Laser Drill Ship is employed by Quill and Yondu in the climactic battle with Ego the Living Planet. These brilliant images are part of the recently published Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: The Art of the Movie and only hint at the complicated process of design in these mega-budget sci-fi showstoppers.
Gawk at these slick spaceship shots in the gallery below, then tell us if you prefer the Quadrant over the Milano.
