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.
