Eternals added a lot of new characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Harry Styles' Eros and his unlikely ally, Pip the Troll. Fans were intrigued by both characters and what they'll potentially bring to this franchise and the wider MCU moving forward.
Teleported aboard the Domo by Pip, Starfox (Thanos' brother) promised the rest of the Eternals that he could help them find their missing friends. It was an intriguing moment, albeit one somewhat overshadowed by the questionable VFX used to bring Patton Oswalt's Pip to life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
There have been a lot of criticisms online about Pip's appearance, with comparisons made to the CG characters in The Polar Express. That's a little harsh, but we'd later learn the teleporting Laxidazian was a last-minute addition to the 2021 movie's mid-credits scene.
Some newly surfaced concept art from Eternals has today found its way online and it showcases several drastically different designs for the character. Pip has been portrayed in all manner of ways by different Marvel Comics artists over the years, giving the MCU's concept artists a great deal of freedom.
Ultimately, the version we saw on screen was largely comic-accurate and brought to life by actor Patton Oswalt (who has said on a few occasions he's still waiting to hear about a possible MCU return).
In the comic books, Pip is commonly associated with Adam Warlock, but it looks like the MCU is taking things in a different direction by aligning him with Starfox instead.
His teleportation powers could prove key in finding Sersi, Kingo, and Phastos after they were abducted by Arishem the Celestial, though that's a story we probably won't see play out until Eternals 2 is released.
