Galactus Minifigure by Shang Yuan - Eater of Very Very Very Tiny Worlds!

Another new minifigure release by bootLEGO maker Shang Yuan is this wonderful tiny Galactus.

I don't follow much Marvel, let alone Fantastic Four or Galactus  himself, but you gotta love the Jack Kirby-ness of this guy. 'Dat Headpiece!

Galactus came with this staff/jewel - not sure if it is anything he may have carried around in the comics, but it's a nice bonus. He also came with a base and Galactus-symbol mini build, but I chose to photograph him standing on an official LEGO minifigure base for some reason. Mostly useless extra bits, but at least Sheng Yuan are reigning themselves in from past mini-builds that were utterly useless and ridiculous and just resulted in a pile of inferior bricks in your possession.

Galactus himself is just shy of LEGO quality, and I just can't imagine any scenario where a person wouldn't want a Galactus minifigure in their collection, be they a fan of the Fantastic Four or not. He's so utterly Kirby and everything awesome about the mad comics-fever-dream that went along with all the stuff The King created.

Get one!

  1. This one's pretty awesome! he would fit right into my LEGO Space city. Did LEGO ever produce a minifigure Galactus?

    1. This is another bootLEGO original. He has not appeared in any official set, and isn't likely to either!

    1. That would be awesome. I really wish LEGO would make relevant characters in a larger scale, like this guy or Giganta or others like that.

    1. I've seen that large custom! I wish LEGO would make some official big guys, even if they were the clocks - so long as they were guys who were supposed to be so big!
