This news item originally appeared on Episode 18 of the Disney news SATIRE podcast, “Guest Room” on the Ears News Network with Parker Byrd and Erin Dole.
ERIN: The re-theming of the Hollywood Tower of Terror into a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction officially made its debut on May 27th. This updated attraction, now called “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!” utilizes the same ride mechanism of the old Twilight Zone: Tower of Terror attraction, essentially a crazy elevator ride, but is much friendlier in tone and appearance. The idea is that the “Collector” is showing off his newest finds, the Guardians of the Galaxy. Rocket has escaped and is enlisting your help in freeing the other guardians. The elevator stops at several floors and we see each character on display.
The collector has seemed to have traveled throughout the entire galaxy because we see many artifacts from past avengers and x-men. There are even a few artifacts that represent battles.
Now I want to see you marvel knowledge Parker. And any listeners out there can try this too. The answers will be in the show notes on our website.
The collector has gathered a few items throughout the galaxy. Try to figure out who or what these items refer to, ready Parker?
PARKER: Ready Erin!
ERIN: A damaged Ultron Sentry:
PARKER: The battle in New York?
ERIN: No. Terrigen Crystals?
ERIN: No. A red leather jacket and a pair of silver shoes?
PARKER: Black Widow?
ERIN: No. Eye Patch? This one is so easy you have to get it .
PARKER: Captain Jack Sparrow!
ERIN: Last time i checked Captain Jack Sparrow wasn’t a superhero. He didn’t even wear an eye patch. You don’t really seem to be getting any of these right so I am just going to list them:
- Compass with a picture of a women in the lid
- Royal Guard’s uniform
- Car battery
- Cracked Rolex
- World War I dog tags
- A red notebook with a star on the cover
- Pair of White gloves
- Hearing aids
- Smashed Walkman
- And finally Captain America trading cards
Ok well anyway the answers the this Marvel trivia of sorts will be in the show notes. It is amazing how much the collector managed to gather from the avengers. These are all references back to other marvels movies that they have thrown into this ride. We heard that the collector himself doesn’t even know where most of these items came from. All he knows is that these items were special at some point in time so he collected them, I guess his name does suit him then right Parker.
PARKER: “Suit” him? I see what you did there!
