The Collector or Taneleer Tivan is the Tivan Group’s head. He is the renowned Collector of interstellar relics and species across the galaxy and has a huge museum to showcase them in Knowhere. If you’d recall, we first saw him in Thor: The Dark World, where Volstagg and Sif give one of the Infinity Stones to the Collector. Along with the stone, there are a lot of interesting things at The Collector’s museum. Let’s take a look at them.
1. Krylorian: We saw them in Guardians of The Galaxy on Peter’s ship once and then in his museum, inside a glass box. The sight of a Krylorian in a box was quite shocking.
2. Xeronians: One of the Xeronians (to its misfortune) ended up in The Collector’s museum as an exhibit. We saw her also in Thor: The Dark World along with the Asgardians.
3. Hurctarians: These humanoid-shaped creatures were a very common species we saw in Guardians of The Galaxy. They were also spotted on Xander.
4. Cocoon: The appearance of Cocoon in the post-credit scene had created a lot of speculation among the fans. The theories of him being Adam Warlock were later confirmed.
5. Dark Elf: Another one of the creepiest collections from the museum is Dark Elf. Fans speculated that the villain species was brought in by Asgardians while delivering the Infinity Stone.
6. Howard The Duck: The Duck’s cameo in Avengers: Endgame was delightful for all the comics fans out there.
7. Frost Giant: The Loki’s real race, which is from Jotunheim, is Frost Giant. We first saw them in Thor, and they introduced them as Asgard’s rivals. Another one of the creepy creatures from The Collector’s museum.
8. Chitauri: As if keeping the dead ones wasn’t creepy enough, he also fancies keeping the alive species too, like Chitauri. We saw them in The Avengers, who fought their invasion.
9. Aether: Along with his other strange and dangerous collections, he also has the Aether or Reality Stone in his museum. Sif and Volstagg delivered the stone to him.
10. Blue Man (Tobias Funke): After seeing Blue Man’s cameo, fans had a lot of speculations and theories about him. It is indeed an Easter Egg, and it was intentionally added to acknowledge the comedy series.
11. Giant Butterfly: This specimen has no reference to the comic books. It was merely created for the movie.
12. The Slugs: Their appearance in the film Guardians of The Galaxy is a callback to a 2006 film Slither. The film featured such organisms that became the reason for the destruction of a small town in South Carolina.
13. Cosmo The Spacedog: Cosmo has the most interesting backstory. The dog was the result of experimentation and ended up in space. It landed on Knowhere and absorbed cosmic rays, and gave him telepathic powers.
These weren’t all from The Collector’s museum but these are some of the most powerful ones. Do you know more? Tell us in the comments.
