S Is For Silver Surfer

S Is For Silver Surfer

Posted to Flickr on 26 July 2010.

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.

The Silver Surfer has also been spotted zooming through space here as well:

Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.


This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
