Yesterday we learned the Devourer of Worlds
was coming to Marvel Legends
in the form of a new 32" tall action figure as Hasbro's latest crowdsourcing Haslab campaign
was officially launched. In less than 24 hours that campaign has gotten almost half of the needed minimum 14k backers
for Galactus to be 100% green lite. As I type this the campaign currently has 6,052 backers and people have until August 30th to make up their minds if they want to add this $399.99 action figure to their collection.
said yesterday that if the campaign surpasses the minimum 14k backers before August 30th, a handful of unlockable tiered add-ons will also be included with the figure. The first will be revealed once the backer counter breaks 14k. During the actual presentation
for this figure, the Marvel brand team didn't give us a lot of details about what those unlockable items will be. Jesse Falcon
teased the final one was his favorite and Dwight Stall
made some indication at least one of the unlockables might be something to army build.
However later in the day Hasbro's Dan Yun
let us know via social media that at least the first unlockable item for Galactus will be a 6" action figure
He went on to say in a response to someone on Twitter that it was a "6-inch figure that will fit on one of Galactusí hand
The most likely assumption here is that Hasbro
will include at least one of Galactus' Heralds
. For those not familiar, heralds
are powerful beings who work for Galactus
. They get sent out ahead to find suitable planets for Galactus
to eat. The first herald introduced to readers and most recognizable is the Silver Surfer
has already given us Marvel Legends
versions of multiple times in the past couple years. I suppose if Hasbro wanted to get creative they could give us a Norrin Radd
figure, Silver Surfer before he actually becomes Silver Surfer.
Of course Silver Surfer
is not the only herald Galactus
has had over the years, in fact the list is quit long. Other Heralds include characters such as Firelord, Air-Walker, Fallen One, Terrax the Tamer, Frankie Raye (Nove), Morg
and the list goes on and on. Hasbro
actually gave us a Terrax
figure early on in the line, but he could definitely use an update.
So will one of these characters be Hasbro's first add-on
for the Galactus Haslab
project? Or perhaps each unlockable tier
will feature one of his Heralds? We don't know. I suspect at least one of the heralds will be included with this project and for me personally I am hoping for Firelord
, but we will just have to wait and see.
I suspect with the way it's going Hasbro will reach it's 14k backers sometime over the weekend, so hopefully we will find out what that 6" figure is Dan Yun
is mentioning real soon. Which herald would you like to see included if any? Let us know in the COMMENTS SECTION
