Toyfare #155 hits news stands tomorrow. A subscriber who got his issue early sent along the tidbit that Hasbro reveals a special exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con – a blister-carded version of the Masterworks Galactus that was teased at SDCC last year and revealed in its retail packaging at Toy Fair this year.
Like the other Marvel Universe exclusives for SDCC this year, the Galactus packaging will feature artwork by Joe Quesada, and will come in a case with handle to make lugging him around the show floor that much easier. I didn’t get the scoop if this version will include electronics, but I’m guessing it will. I also don’t know if it will include the Silver Surfer, but I’m guessing it will not.
And for those of you wondering if this means no retail release, my understanding is that Galactus will still find his way to retail as planned, featuring the Mike Deodato packaging shown above.
