We'll start with the ugly first - it's ugly. The head is disproportionate to the body and there are elements of the figures limbs that just look goofy, like the feet. The wide hips and thighs aren't working either.

The last time we received a Galactus via Marvel Legends BAF, though he was a tad small (but c'mon - he was free and the very first BAF), he was downright handsome and well shaped with clear Kirby-esque flourishes and details. The metallic paint was better, too. This new Hasbro version is too "toylike", closer to Superhero Squadron than what you would want from Marvel Universe.

Now, the bad: the voice sucks, all eleven phrases. He sounds like a pro-wrestler, not the devourer of worlds. Anyone who reads the comics knows: Galactus isn't angry and snooty - he's just cosmic and big. He doesn't have an attitude because he's completely impartial about who he eats. This toy has so much guff in his voice you'd think he had something to prove, and we all know, the Big G has nothing to prove, not to us puny humans anyway...

They could have used any number of vocoder effects to make this sound cool, but Hasbro opted for a clown who couldn't even make it in a Florida death metal band if he tried. The recent spate of animated superhero movies opt for this lack of vox effects as well and it's flipping annoying.

But at last, the good: he BIG... really BIG, and the Norrin Rad he comes with is nice and silvery, not white like the three pack and not just metallic like the carded version - this Surfer is silver. The two together are displayed in a great package with an appropriately large sized "confidential file" card pack. I don't have him out yet but it looks like he's meant to be removed easily so you can store him again without tears to the package.

alright, I'll be honest. I bought this as a present for my husband and we have a blast with it. He's posable enough to be pretty versatile. Has good balance, good volume on the sound bites, and all that. We love it :)

I never thought I would see this one! Galactus is a work of art. Because it is posable and can be mixed with other figures of the same scale, there is no way it will stay in the box when it comes time for me to display it. What a battle that will be! In fact,it is hinted at on the packaging. Smart marketing. I am not jaded enough to be angered every time someone makes a good pitch.
The sculpture in the figure is BETTER than the photos can show. The face has more depth and is not entirely expressionless. The colors are good and true to the original design.And the size is right for an adult's display as well as a kid's toy. No-one too young to be able to read and understand Fantastic Four #50-70 will ever touch this figure! It Is MINE!!!! ALL MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Educational value? As a mannequin used by an art student trying to grasp costuming and foreshortening, One would be hard pressed to find a better subject to practice with. Jack Kirby's flare for helmets,boots,and armor raised the benchmark for comic book art forever. I do not envy the sculptor who had to do the prototype for this statue (it is very hard to think of it as just a toy). This rendering is a masterwork!
OK! Now EVERYBODY PAY ATTENTION!
Disney Owns Marvel. Right? I suspect we have not seen our third Fantastic Four Movie because they haven't made the bucks that Spiderman has. The F.F. have never had the slam bam kind of image the X Men and Spidey have maintained over the years. Now that second FF movie has us all set up for what many comic fans consider one of the greatest runs in the history of the media. When you go through and read it now it looks and almost reads like a story board. And the final scenes of FF2 with the Silver Surfer have the stage all set.
