it's galactus the destroyer of universes. reminds me of reading secret wars as a child. now i can read the following on wikipedia:

The series was conceived by Marvel Comics' Editor-in-chief Jim Shooter:
Kenner had licensed the DC Heroes. Mattel had He-Man, but wanted to hedge in case superheroes became the next big fad. They were interested in Marvel's characters, but only if we staged a publishing event that would get a lot of attention, and they could build a theme around. Fans, especially young fans often suggested to me 'one big story with all the heroes and all the villains in it', so I proposed that. It flew. Mattel thought that kids responded well to the word "secret", so after a couple of working names bit the dust, we called the story 'Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars'.'[1]
Shooter also explained:
We went through a number of ideas for names for the toy line and series. Mattel’s focus group tests indicated that kids reacted positively to the words “wars” and “secret.” Okay. / Mattel had a number of other requirements. Doctor Doom, they said, looked too medieval. His armor would have to be made more high-tech. So would Iron Man’s, because their focus groups indicated that kids reacted positively...etc. Okay. / They also said there had to be new fortresses, vehicles and weapons because they wanted playsets, higher price point merchandise and additional play value. Okay. / When time came to actually do it, I realized that only I could write it.[2]

To Pierre: I love ya man. And I love Kate Bush 110%.

Doctor Doom?

Too medieval?

Now that's just insulting.

He was my first Legend.

I always insist my action figures are comic book authentic as much as possible.

Mattel? You gotta be kiddin' me.

Toybiz on the other hand represent the pinnacle, yes the very zenith, of collectible Marvel action figures.

What?

Don't look at me like that.

Yes, I am chuckling.

I'm still working towards my Galactus BAF.

Christ, this is so embarrassing.

I'll have to do a lightning edit or deletion later!

Hammer i feel the same, had I known that Dr. Doom had to get a complete mattel makeover just to make it to the series, I would have never bought a single issue of secret wars I or II. Stupid kids..
