CMON reveals huge Galactus zombie, clues about Marvel Zombies zombicide
CMON is teaming up with Spin Master Games and Marvel for a new Kickstarter, and since this will be CMON’s 50th Kickstarter, they’re going all out for it. The first tease of the campaign was a miniature of Silver Surfer, which of course suggested that Galactus would be involved as well. That said, no one expected them to deliver the massive Galactus you can see below, which is 2 feet tall and 17 inches wide (including its base). That’s going to double for the fact that it’s Zombie Galactus, so while we’re still waiting for the official reveal, the teases suggest we’re getting a Marvel Zombies version of the CMON hit. Zombicide Game.
The Zombicide logo was included on the packaging of this second tease, which was revealed by Man vs Meeple, and you can find their full video reveal of the Zombie Galactus here. He’s also quite impressive up close, with plenty of gruesome detail on his face and throughout his sculpture.
It’s amazing when you see the tiny (in comparison) Silver Surfer standing next to him, and we can’t wait to see how Zombie Galactus interacts with the game, whether it’s Zombicide or whatever. CMON and Spin Master have already collaborated on the hit Marvel united and X-Men United games, which are fantastic, so hopefully this game is no different.
For those unfamiliar with the Zombicide franchise, the game is a co-op affair where you and your playmates take control of a crew of Zombie Apocalypse survivors, and you’ll have to tackle a plethora of missions throughout. along your journey to make sure your crew survives and has the equipment and weapons to take down all manner of undead, including super-powerful Abominations.
Abominations are incredibly deadly, and are often bigger than regular Undead minions and players on the board, though they’re usually not that much bigger. If it’s Marvel Zombies Zombicide, taking on Galactus could be amazing, and I can’t wait to see how the game incorporates the various superhero abilities in place of the more traditional ones. When it comes to characters, events of Galactus’ size typically involve all heavyweights, which over the years have included the Fantastic Four, Thor and more, but we’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out.
