Martinex is what gave it away for me.

I recognised the shoulder detail on Stallone!

Now I'm feeling nerdy because on a comic book forum, I'm the one who
recognized Starhawk because Yondu referred to him by his real name, Stakar
Ogord.

That Sly is Starhawk is one of the only things I really didn't like about this movie.

I actually didn't like Stallone as Starhawk either. Or more, I didn't like that his scenes didn't involve anything to make him unique or interesting. It was just Stallone, in a spaceman biker jacket, playing Stallone.

I dislike everything they did involving the original 31st Century Guardians, including Rooker as Yondu.   

The rest is just brilliant fun.

If it makes you feel better, that's how I figured it out, too. (Took a bit, though - the "Stakar" was nagging at me most of the movie.)

I didn't mind Rooker as Yondu since by himself, he could easily just be just an ancestor of the hero from the original team (since the original team is actually a 1,000 years in the future) or maybe just someone from the same race whose legend and name gets somewhat blown up in the future. Or, it could simply be a common name for his race. 

But, bringing in the others and making them simply thieves & rogues along with more racial casting... the sad thing is, it would have been so, so easy to do something that was more in keeping with the originals. Do an end credit set in the future with a younger Yondu, Charlie, Martinex and Vance Astro on the run, fighting the Baddoon. They find a bombed out museum and among the litter and broken statuary is a glass case with the arrow. The younger Yondu recognizes it, picks it up and with a make-shift bow, fires it at the enemy... I think the 4 original Guardians of the Galaxy would make for a pretty good sci-fi series by itself

With the various credits at the end, was there one for Arnold Drake and Gene Colan?

Yondu can't be Yondu's ancestor, because Yondu was a Kree while Yondu will be a Zatoan. 

Make sense?

In the movie, Yondu was a Kree slave, not a Kree. Pretty sure he's a
Centaurian, like in the comics.

I thought they did an incredible job on the young Kurt Russell. I'm a stickler for looking for anything out of sorts with those kind of effects. But wow good job.

Michael: I must have misinterpreted that line. Or maybe a different one. I thought it explained his blue skin.

Seconded. The best "de-aging" effects I've seen.
