The Devourer of Worlds. He Who Hungers. A living embodiment of entropy and survival. A universal constant. A force of nature. Hasbro Pulse proudly presents the next fan-funded HasLab project: Marvel Legends Galactus!

THE DEVOURER OF WORLDS
We can think of few characters more worthy of the HasLab treatment than Galactus, and with your help, we’re going to do him justice!
Galactus’ status as an icon of the Marvel Age was all but instantly cemented with his first appearance in Fantastic Four #48-50 (1966). The so-called Galactus Trilogy represents the zenith of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s creative partnership, a genre-defining achievement that ushered in the Marvel Age of Comics.
To fully fund the project and satiate Galactus’ mighty hunger, we need to hit 14,000 backers. And we don’t want to stop there. The team has prepared some stretch goals to unlock.
“THE COMING OF GALACTUS!”
This 32-inch (812 mm) Marvel Legends Galactus figure is the biggest Marvel Legends figure ever made, surpassing even the mighty Haslab Marvel Legends Sentinel figure! With a frame consisting of +300 pieces, it’s also one of our most intricate.
Featuring over +70 points of articulation (with 20 in each hand alone!), this figure is entirely posable and will make a cosmic addition any display.
LEDS on the head and chest convey Galactus’ overwhelming cosmic power. He also comes with 2 alternate faceplates. The first allows the big guy to go from his usual stoic expression to a mask of rage. Best of luck to any Marvel Legends figures who get in his way! The second features a skeletal face in the style of the fan-favorite Marvel Zombies comic book series.
BUILDING THE DEVOURER
Though he no longer wears a giant G on his chest, Galactus’ appearance has remained largely true to Jack Kirby’s original designs. There were certain elements, such as the interlocking lines of his armor and that awesome helmet, that we knew we had to truly nail. From his intricate costume to his distinct square irises and that stoic, glowering expression, our hunger for perfection knew no bounds! Alongside Kirby we took inspiration a host of the passionate and talented artists who have contributed to the cosmos of the Marvel Universe. Building and designing Galactus from the ground up, we’ve created a truly massive and awe-inspiring figure to join your Marvel Legends collection!
There’s no time to waste! The Great Devourer approaches, and only your support can quench his legendary hunger! Lend your support to the Planet-Eater and claim your own Marvel Legends Galactus figure! Nuff said!
