Stunning Marvel diorama looks like that awesome scene you could never make with your own toys

Yeah yeah, Comic-Con is practically old news at this point. But in case you missed it, feast your eyes on this jam-packed diorama that showcases most of the Marvel Universe battling against Galactus. When I was ages 5-15, this is what I wanted my room to look like but could never pull it off. Now, as an aging 300-year-old, I still wish I could clear off my desk and arrange every single action figure into a battle so epic it would crack the office in half.

Above: The wide shot, with Galactus towering over a raging plastic battlefield

Above: The X-Men's Colossus charging towards Juggernaut, with Kitty Pride and Cyclops right behind

Above: Spidey leaping over Rhino is classic form. And there's Moon Knight pointing at a better super hero!

Above: Hulk utterly destroying somebody by punching them against a  brick wall. Who is that, Absorbing Man?

Above: Iron Patriot (Norman Osborn) leaps at an older Iron Man, recreating a moment from The Siege

Above: Yeah it's a bit blurry, but it's still hilarious to think Thing would just punch Galactus in the knee

Above: Another shot from the air. Tons of B-level characters, which is awesome. Oh and Red Hulk is stupid

    @GamesRadarEricBratcher Moon Knight, although technically a Batman clone, is actually quite a bit different, partly because Moon Knight is insane and has multiple personalities, and as you say, wears white. I've just been inspired to do my own version. I just want a Galactus figure!!(though I do have a mahoosive Sentinal.)

    The thing I love about Moon Knight is that he's clearly a Batman clone, but he wears white. Ever tried to sneak around in the dark wearing white? The only way he could stick out more is if he wore a helmet with a spinning police light and siren on top. Not that I'm hating on the man. I have issue #1, and the Moon Kings storyline is still one of my favorites of all time.

    Why are you hating on Moon Knight!? He's awesome!

    so who wins this epic battle?
  • 510BrotherPanda - July 28, 2010 7:19 p.m.

    The only collection of action figures I have is the 80's cartoon Ninja Turtles. Unless... I could set it up with the old Transformers...

    How they do? Fishing wire? Super glue? Pocket universe? Non sequitur: my reCAPTCHA phrase was "tree strewing." My new favorite compound adjective!

    All of the Starwars Scenes That I ever made as a kid never ended up looking anywhere near how i wanted them. this article fulfills a deep,childhood dream of mine. Many thanks Brett.
  • TheCanuck - July 28, 2010 6:47 p.m.

    God damn Galactus. He was the Fig I could never get when I was a kid. >:(

    I'm with you Brett about setting up action figures. I had an extensive collection when I was younger. I would set up all my Masters of the Universe figures outside of Greyskull on all there vehicles and animals. I would also do the same with my Star Wars and Super Powers toys as well. Now as an adult, I don't have those toys, But I have a huge Batman toys collection that will fill my basement when I am done. I wish digital technology was around when I was a kid, I would have had all my battles saved on my computer.
  • Ridgley - July 28, 2010 5:56 p.m.

    That's awesome
  • Doctalen - July 28, 2010 5:55 p.m.

    Should have done this with Unicron and Transformers.
  • nighthawk205 - July 28, 2010 5:52 p.m.

    Is that Silver Surfer just hanging out on Galactus's shoulder? Clearly some of these guys didn't want to get involved in the fighting...
