1. New Star-Lord Gear
Who else noticed Star Lord’s little tracker that he uses to warn the team when the space beast is approaching!? To the untrained eye, it may seem like an ordinary piece of random equipment.

8. Yondu’s Head Fin
In this film, Yondu got the fin that we’ve all been wondering about! That’s right! So instead of the small little ugly looking thing on his head, he’s now outfitted with a statement-making piece of headgear. With this flashy fin, Yondu simply looks absolutely badass just like in the comic books!
9. The Words On Peter’s Shirt
The fact that someone actually took the time to decipher this shirt amazes us! The main graphic on the shirt reads “Gear Shift” in an alien language that actually made an appearance before! During the scene at the interstellar prison facility from the first film, a keyboard with the alien lettering is shown, and a Reddit user used it to figure out what the shirt read!
10. Galaga Reference
