S Is For Silver Surfer

    Newer Older

    When the planet-consuming Galactus threatened to destroy the idyllic planet of Zenn-La, the astronomer Norrin Radd struck a deal with the seemingly omnipotent space-god. In exchange for the well-being of his planet and those he loved, Radd would serve Galactus as a herald, searching the galaxy for new planets for the world devourer to feed upon. Accepting the terms of the agreement, Galactus infused Radd with a portion of the Power Cosmic, transforming him into the Silver Surfer. A noble and conflicted soul, the Silver Surfer eventually betrayed his master and became a hero.

    This four and a half inch action figure was produced by ToyBiz in 1994.

    Part of my Letter Of The Law series.

      DodogoeSLR: Truthfully, I'm not much of a Rolling Stone fan, but when I stumbled across that song title, I knew what I had to do! ;-)

      Paloetic: Thank you! It took a lot of trial and error for me to finally land at this angle. ;-)

      flickrfanmk2007: I don't think I ever read much of the Silver Surfer when I was a kid. With the Marvel stuff I was more of a Spider-Man fan.

      A cosmic moment well displayed JD, the Silver Surfer is for me the icon of intergalactic space heroes, a Shakespearian tragedy on a surfboard.

      Jo Ban: Thank you!

      hero-haven: "A Shakespearian tragedy on a surfboard." Oooh, I'm gonna have to steal that one. ;-)
