Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds. The very name sends tremors of terror throughout the Universe. Sole survivor of an alien race that dates back to the dawn of time, he travels the galaxy, searching for suitable planets so he can consume their life force. A herald always signals his coming. They are usually sent ahead to ensure the prospective meal will indeed sate their master’s appetite. His past heralds have included the legendary Silver Surfer, Firestorm and Nova. On several occasions, the heroes of the Marvel Universe have been called upon to intercede, stopping Galactus from making Earth his next meal. Each time, they’ve managed to turn him away. But how long before he returns? He hungers.
Gentle Giant is proud to bring you the 2013 SDCC Exclusive Galactus Mini Bust! Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., this intimidating bust features the fearsome Ravager of Worlds in fine detail using only the highest quality polystone. As an added bonus, his most famous Herald, the Silver Surfer is rendered in high-quality pewter, orbiting his master! This limited edition mini bust is hand painted and comes individually numbered, and includes a matching certificate of authenticity. Make Mine Marvel!
